AstroStart RSS-5225 problems

Hey Guys,

Our dealer had installed one of these on our 2014 Summit Diesel, and they installed on our new 2015 Limited Gasser. We'll we decided they were doing some work and I would have them install it in our 2014 Overland Diesel.

We'll they worked on it for two days and can't get it to work, now they say it needs a firmware update from AstroStart to work, and then they say they don't have the compatible firmware for the Jeeps in them especially the diesel.

I call Bull@@@@ here, they did the same unit on our Summit, they said this is a newer unit probably and that's the problem.

Anyone running a 2014 or 2015 with an AstroStart.

I tried to use it when we got home and I got a Error 5 which means the hood is open but they don't put that switch on these at this dealer. Got to wait until Monday to call AstroStart. I can't believe that they put a unit in that don't have the proper firmware.


Going to chew some butt over this one, I've got a couple places in town that I could take it to and see what they say and send the bill to the dealer..

Re: AstroStart RSS-5225 problems

Just an update guys,

Our dealer used a ADS-ALCA CAN interface (DL-CH7)

This interface is for the Jeep Grand Cherokee but not
the diesel. I've got a friend who owns a Diesel Injection
service who is going to take a look at my install and see
if he can work around this problem.

I'll update after he looks at our Jeep.


Also our dealer did the install on our new 2015 Grand Cherokee
Gasser, we'll I was working in my shop wiring up the block heater
extension and hard wiring the Jeep for a battery charger so I don't
have to open the hood to hook up anything.

So I'm halfway into the engine area and my key pushes the remote
start and the engine starts while I'm hanging in there, rolled out of
there carefully, I am giving the dealership a piece of my mind.

The Dealer did not hook-up any safety wiring to either of our Jeeps to lock out the engine start with the hood open.
