REC radio in a 2005 wk

i was wondering if its poss to put a REC nav radio into the 2005 GC? i bought the new bezel and i did buy a radio off ebay but when i hooked it up the screen didnt come on and it only played like am and the buttons didnt do anything? Do i need a diff wire hook up? i have the big single plug but i noticed the REC had 2 diff plugins!! i also read that certain rec radio's with certain part numbers only work

can anyone help?????

Re: REC radio in a 2005 wk

You should have a 22 pin connector and a 10 pin connector on the back of the radio, as well as the GPS antenna plug and the Terrestrial radio plug. If it is an '07, it may also have a 4 pin connector on the back, which is for the Jeep back-up camera hook-up.

The 22 pin connector is for your audio signal wires, power, UConnect, etc.

The 10 pin connector is for the Sat and rear DVD.

If it has a 3 pin connector, in place of the 4 pin, this is for factory software access, only.

Either way, '05-'07 should plug and play.

Hope this helps,
Bob

i am going with rob on this one. you must have the basic system, in which you can not add a REC because the nav prompts will sound terrible. do you have a sirius antenna on your roof?
