My WK (WH) EVIC has turned in to a German!

After installing my Aftermarket Radio, and more importantly, the PAC C2R-CHY4 Harness my EVIC/Dash Display has turned from English to German/Deutsch.

I have managed to find a few people via google with this problem but no apparent solution has been offered.

From what I know:

(1) This only affects Export Grand Cherokees (same with 300C, Commander, etc.)
(2) If I disconnect the PAC C2R-CHY4 it returns to English
(3) If I change the Menu Step from Deutsch to English it returns to Deutsch within 1 second.

It's not the end of the world if I can't get it fixed, as I usually only use Tire PSI and Compass/Temp and these are the same display in German as they are in English, but it would be nice to return all functions to English.

Does anyone know of a fix, or had this experience before?

Re: My WK (WH) EVIC has turned in to a German!

I do but I didn't have the 's tset' thingy and looking at it now, I realise my spelling error! Nicht gut und keine idee!

That's strange though, there's obviously something up with the new install, but what?!? Have you tried disconnecting the battery. Just a thought.

Battery has been disconnected and has been confirmed by PAC that it is a characteristic of their harness when fitted to Export GC's.

Just received word from PAC Technical Support:

"We do not have access to European models of the vehicle to update the interface to resolve the issue. We would need a vehicle in our Santa Ana California location to test to find what is causing the change."

That's hardly a feasible way to provide a solution!?

Re: My WK (WH) EVIC has turned in to a German!

Nein! Es ist nicht. Sie mussen Deutches gesprechen alles zeit...or summat

That is really weird though. Have you spoken to the dealer at all? I know they probably won't want to know, what with it being an aftermarket piece of kit, but could be worth a shot.

What he said

As for going for Metra instead, that means I would lose my steering wheel controls, yes?

I'd much rather keep the steering wheel controls and suffer the German, if that is the case...

Rob, I should also add, when you were kind enough to tell me exactly what I needed for my radio install, I did ask whether the PAC was compatible with my Jeep to which they answered "yes". They neglected to point out the German issue though.

Re: My WK (WH) EVIC has turned in to a German!

sorry to hear they didnt disclose.

both have compromises. with the PAC, you lose FADE, with the Metra, you lose the SW controls.

and if you feel like the german is NOT a show stopper, then even better.

Re: My WK (WH) EVIC has turned in to a German!

Hey everyone, problem fixed.

Ripped my PAC out and replaced with a Scosche device and now my EVIC is back to English, PSI and Fahrenheit

1. Scosche S3CR02B: 1 @ $17.99
2. Scosche S3-1 (S31): 1 @ $124.99

No darned programming either, just plug it in and it works!
