Re: What did you do to your WK today?

question. For those that installed a pioneer unit along with the help of the RP4-CH11. Any issues with the steering wheel buttons? My middle left (present) button isn't 100%. I tried to reset to defaults which it had been and no luck. I spoke with the company I ordered it from on ebay and they are willing to replace interface or refund my money. I spoke with Pac T.S. who also walked me through reseting and it's still not 100%. T.S. said it could be an issue with the communicating with the interface. I asked about a replacement, and he felt it wouldn't help. He did suggest perhaps another company would be better, wouldn't mention the name. But I mentioned to him that my z130bt came with a scosche interface (missing the swc module) and he said that's the company. I have looked around to see about ordering just the swc that comes with the scosche s3-1 interface, and I just come up with generic swc controllers. I would prefer no extra splicing just like the RP4-CH11 one is, and the S3-1 would be also.
Anyone experiencing this issue with the RP4-CH11? Or have experience with other swc controllers?
I can't wait to get this all wrapped up so I can put my radio bezel back on. I've been without it a few weeks now, as 1 clip got a little weird, and I don't want to snap it. I also received my upper and lower switch panels back from diobolo with replacement bulbs, and that looks great. Quick turn around, really nice guy.
I also added a little thump in my trunk. Kicker L7 10 in a ported box being powered by an audiobahn 800.2 amp that I had running 2 audiobahn 12s in my WJ

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

Currently stuck in Target Parking lot. Jeep not starting. I keep up with the maintenance so I know that's not an issue. New battery so that's def not the cause. Got a transmission over temperature warning. Googled the symptoms and came up on a good link.

"My fix was replacing the starter and starter wiring harness. According to the dealer the starter and wiring harness is located in such an area where water from rain runs down in it. Eventually this causes the problem with that light coming on and the vehicle not starting. I had the work done in the summer and have not had issues since. "

So frustrated right now.

Is it turning over and just not firing, or starter won't engage at all.

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

txted ya Paul!

same exact crap happened to me a few weeks ago...helped move some crap outta storage and park infront of a hydrant. When done, tried to start it up and no click. Tried to jumpstart and didnt work, so crawl under the jeep and used a rod to poke at the starter connections and started right up.

Disc the starter wires and make it as tight as possible.

Nine times out of ten in this situation, especially after starter replacement, the issue is a loose signal wire to the starter from the ignition switch. I had it happen a few times till i crawled uper it and double checked the connections. Haven't had a issue since.

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

I've decided after much debate that I'm going to keep my current Jeep. I almost pulled the trigger on a SRT but I nearly have my 05 paid off. I've put a lot of work into it so I might as well keep it going. Plus I'm wanting to take the plunge and buy my girl a ring.

Smart move!! At much as *I'd* like one, transportation is designed to get you from point A to point B, and it's a big commitment when you have a car payment. I drove my last car till the wheels fell off. It had been paid for for 6 years!! That's a lot of $$ you can put toward a house down payment, etc... There will be a time in your life when you can have the SRT... That's my sensible side. I don't always listen to myself -even when I'm right!
Except for Truck Norris' payment and mortgage, I'm debt free (well, ok, I have a payment to the dentist...), and it's a nice feeling!!

PLUS, congrats on the ring!!! You'll need some coin for that, and the wedding, and the honeymoon, etc...

Smart move!!

Same here about to pay off my 06 in 3 months but rather wait brother. Save up 2 years and have more than enough to pay half or more of the SRT off I'm going for an 08 in 2 years then start working on a house since I'll be starting my career in roughly too years who knows you could get a conversion going for your jeep js
