Note that 2008-up radios will not plug into 2005-2007 models without a wiring harness converter and antenna adaptor.

Re: Can an REQ radio work in my 05 wk??

I currently have a RAQ radio with Sirius capability and may want to switch to a REF (to add the aux input) which I understand is plug and play. Do all REFs have Sirius capability or would I need to find one that does. If I need to find one, how can I assure it has it? (specific model # etc.)

Re: Can an REQ radio work in my 05 wk??

Dude get a REC. You can get one on ebay for under $400. The extra antenna is for the GPS. Easy install, definitely worth the money.

Re: Can an REQ radio work in my 05 wk??

For that amount of money I'd just buy an aftermarket nav that would put the REC to shame. Anyone know the answer to my question?

Re: Can an REQ radio work in my 05 wk??

My current RAQ doesn't have a "Sirius button" it has a mode button; one of the mode options being SAT. I believe the REF has the same setup with the mode button. I wanted to know if the RAQ/REF radios have different connections or would require special programming in order for Sirius to work, or if they all have have the SAT option and as long as you have the Sirius antenna you are good to go.
