Did you investigate the suggestions above appropriately? The converter is a failure point and should be tested or isolated.

I would look around for a video device with composite output, then test with that.

Cheers,
Steve

I have my software installed, but not the camera yet.

I have to assume that the blue screen I see is because of no video, kinda like a screen saver.

So if you have all of your connections checked and are good. I would think the camera could not be getting power, or could be bad.

Hook a dvd player to the camera plug, and see if it comes on. That would rule out the wiring and software and point to a bad camera.

I have received my camera, but have not installed it yet, since I need to remove the bumper again, and fabricate a bracket to hold the camera.

But my initial observation of this camera with the kit, is very sub-par, and I do not think it will last more than 6 months myself, especially with constant power to it at all times, since the lockpick does not switch the power to the camera on and off.

Mike that is what I first thought. I ordered another converter from China and got the same result. I suppose it's possible I got a dud converter. I'll test that on an old boob tube TV today.

Re: new lockpick for the 8,4 uconnect, 99% software

I am looking to hook up a TV Box through the rax, however the box that I want is the Ez-Box MX3, and it has only worked with an HDMI cable. Any suggestions?

Will the rax eventually start using HDMI instead of component wires?

No, only accepts composite video signal. I don't see that changing. You will need a HDMI to composite converter.

I plan on hooking it up with the composite cables, can anyone tell me how the Rax kit is wired? From the pictures it looks like its a single yellow port for the composite hookup. Am I right or does it come with female red white and yellows?

How is the MX3 working with the Rax?

Re: new lockpick for the 8,4 uconnect, 99% software

I purchased the silver package, paid and have had emails from tech department in order to answer some specifics. I received my patch cord and camera in the mail already (not expected this fast), but have not got word on any software yet. How does this process work? Do they send you a link to download from or do you go to their website to get the software from your order listing, or do they send it in the mail?

The link to download comes via email, mine went into my spam folder, I am assuming because of the file attached and the link in the email, it was considered spam.

Re: new lockpick for the 8,4 uconnect, 99% software

I need to uninstall my rax, having some wrong key fob messages and want to take it to the dealer and dont want to give them any ammunition for an excuse.

Ive seen the instruction on here before and should have bookmarked it, can anyone give me a link to the post or write them again?

Thanks everyone.
