Re: Rear View Camera in Laredo?

Yes, I gave them the money cause they had plenty of Laredo's and Limited's in stock and were not interested in giving me the deal I wanted on an "ordered" vehicle unless I committed to it. I checked with about 4 other dealers in the area and they all had a similar response so it must just be common in this area for some reason.

I absolutely agree with your take on why they structure it this way, but it really is disappointing that a $30k+ vehicle doesn't come with something that my wife's $20k CR-V base model came with as standard equipment.

Today I was at the dealership getting my steering wheel re-aligned and I spent some time with the parts department. The prices he gave me for the parts identified is as follows:

Camera - 68137943AF - $301.30
Wiring - 68225287AA - $109.65
Applique - 5PS79LAUAA - $306.90 (This is the Granite Metallic one)

All of these prices seem to be very high. Is there any "cheap" way to get parts from Mopar by number?

These are the things I feared. I was actually hoping someone would make a replacement unit that would relocate the 6 hard buttons and give at least a one din space for something aftermarket.

I'm not holding my breathe. I just hope that a lockpic style device will allow me to use an aftermarket camera.

Welcome to the wonderful world of some dealerships. A lot of them use a Matrix system which takes MSRP on a part and adds a percentage above that, depending on part popularity, regular stocking, and so forth.

I'd look online for some of the dealerships which also run an internet parts department. It's often much cheaper (though...they use a shipping calculator that's by percentage of cost, which usually works out well in their favor).

Did tratpop see this (post 28)? That link didn't work in Firefox, and not sure I could decipher it if I had the wiring diagram. But it would be great to know if a Laredo E without the 8.4 is prewired for back up camera.

A sample VIN from a new Laredo E:

1C4RJEAG1EC270776

Thanks much,

PB

Re: Rear View Camera in Laredo?

Ok, its official. I am placing the order through www.weRmopar.com today for the parts. With shipping its coming to a total of $440 which is great! Now comes the scary part.... Will it all fit and work as easily as it sounds in this thread.

Guess I will be the first guinea pig, will hopefully remember to take a ton of pictures and post a write-up when I am done.

Hey, saw the post, just never remember to grab the vin.

So if that laredo E VIN has the wiring, then is simply plug in camera to a harness that is unused in the rear hatch and have BCM flashed?

When I was looking at the wiring again today, I noticed that it's exactly the same as my Ram, down to which fuse the camera circuit is on and which BCM pin it talks to. I don't think you will have any trouble getting this to work.

Re: Rear View Camera in Laredo?

I have a wireless unit with a license plate frame mount from Amazon.

The factory unit need to be programmed to recognize the camera input, the wiring may be there but if the screen doesn't switch inputs...

Be worth a try though.

The Ram discussion required a harness to be made to patch in a section of the wiring that was missing?

I really wonder if I'm going to find a harness in the hatch.

Im guessing i would have to go with some kind of "lockpik" device and my own wiring?
Did anyone determine if a backup camera is possible on the 5" screen of the Laredo?
