I can now confirm, the 2015 Non Vapor models also do not have the 5 pin connector for plug and play install. I was hoping they had changed all of them to make the assembly line process simpler but no luck...

Oh well, got mine in, looks great and your instructions were spot on, thanks!

Thanks for the feedback on 2015s. Still surprised as how they only did the backlit airbag on the JGC Red Vapors so far. I would think they would put it on the Hellcats and other "special" edition SRT vehicles as it is the same one. These instructions should work for the other vehicles as well.

I spoke with the SRT Brand Manager at the Las Vegas SRT Track Experience, he said 750 Red Vapor packages were produced.

I'm assuming that they are all produced already and the ordering banks are closed?

I was told back in February that the order banks were closed. My Red Vapor was built on 11-12-2014.

Re: 2015 WK2 SRT Red Vapor special edition

Anyone with a Red Vapor had issues with the backlit airbag? I've got 200 miles on mine and the backlight seems to have failed, doesn't come on with headlights in any position...occasionally when flipping the headlight switch to on it will flash very briefly but that's it.

Guess it's time to take it to the dealer...wonder how long it's going to take to get the part.

Re: 2015 WK2 SRT Red Vapor special edition

Cool, hopefully it'll be a quick swap and not a bigger issue with the wiring or something else.

Sounds like an issue with the wiring for the backlit SRT feature. The feature itself is pretty simple but uses a ribbon harness to get power from the steering wheel harness to the LED lights behind the SRT logo. I can only assume one of those wires have vibrated loose and might reconnect randomly. Since you're under warranty you shouldn't have an issue getting it repaired. Hopefully all of us non-Red Vapor folks haven't bought up all the available replacement airbags but as Scott mentioned JustforJeeps had one left awhile ago. My parts guy probably has some too which should still show up in stock for your dealer when they request one out of the parts system.

I have over 200 miles on my 2014 which I added the backlit airbag and have had no issues but my wiring harness from the wheel to the airbag is "custom."

Re: 2015 WK2 SRT Red Vapor special edition

Yeah the little flicker I get occasionally is leading me to believe the wiring is loose...but that's pretty shoddy assembly if that's the case.

Re: 2015 WK2 SRT Red Vapor special edition

I wasn't going to bring it up as I figured I had just had bad luck and didn't think others would have it but my brand new vapor airbag had a problem with the ribbon cable connection.

When I first tested it, worked fine, but as I was putting everything back together, it stopped. Finally found the end connector on the ribbon, which has teeth that press through and connect into the ribbon, was the issue.

I pulled it back, clamped it in a slightly different place and held it in with epoxy to keep it from moving as much.

Solved it but I do worry it will come back later and of course since mines not a factory build vapor, I'll be on my own to buy another.
