New Camera - 1WD55GW7AH

New Wiring kit - AUSWKKL2014WL
Is the new camera code readily readable on the back of the car?? I'm asking because my car should be delivered any day now to the dealer. I will want to check the camera code number to ensure it is one of the new cameras rather than an older one they are trying to "unload" prior to taking ownership!! Thanks.

No code.. But it is very easy to tell the difference. The existing product comes out of a opening in the trim near the Jeep Badge. The new product is in the same location but the trim is moulded around the camera. Have a look at the limited (it looks the same as the new camera). Pick of new (moulded) and old

I used an email addressed to tp409@chrysler.com and then followed up a week later with a call to the 1300 number.
I was issued a case number and then had no contact from JA unless I followed up, which I did. I also explained that I was going to lodge a complaint via the Dept of Fair Trading and it was when things heated up that suddenly JA began calling me.
They are now going to fit, free of charge, one of the "new" revised camera's to my Laredo.
My submission to the DoFT is a work in progress and ready to go at any time and especially if JA do not provide the advertised features of their Parkview rear camera.
Here's a scenario - say 500 MY2014 Laredo's were sold and provided with the crap camera. But only 50 owners complain. And of those only 5 were serious enough to go the distance. If a decent camera costs $250 + install then JA are only up for $1250 +. Why would they willingly spend $12,500 on 50 complainants when 45 of them aren't going to stir the pot.
And using the same analogy I cannot see JA offering to retro fit all Laredo's.
So the message is - if you aren't happy - do something and seriously lodge a complaint and stand up for your rights.
Hi Blacopal, Thanks for that information. My partner is in the same boat as you were. Could i please get the details and the 1300 number so we can pursue the same course

Thanks

Re: Rear safety camera

I'm being told by my dealer they won't be getting the new cameras until Aug/Sept. Interesting given it appears some other dealerships are already fitting them!

MY14 Laredo Camera Replacement Final Update!!

My Jeep dealer rang me yesterday and said, "Would you accept an update camera with applique?"

Hmmmmmmmmmm, had to think long and hard but finally accepted the kind offer.

Had it fitted this morning and an initial test showed a big improvement on the original Crappy Chrysler Cramera.

Photos attached but in optimal light for Melbourne this time of the year. I need to go to QLD or wait till December in Vic for bright sunlight test.
Will also test it tonight but also expect a big improvement.

Service Manager said, "Be thankful because its the last one in Vic and NSW and all the rest are on backorder." No worries, I am behooved to Chrysler for something that they should have supplied in the first place.

He also said that NO other early MY14 Laredo's are being retrofitted but because I am a good customer, then I deserve one and they look after good customers.

I should be a good customer because I waited 10 months for the bloody thing in the first place.

So I thank all the members for the great support, victory is mine with your help. But from the inference from them, each must go and bitch and whinge on your own behalf because Jeep Aust arent going to voluntarily retrofit the new cameras.

They are still getting off lightly because there is still the matter of False and Misleading Advertising in their brochures and online websites to consider.

Good luck to all.
