Question Is this Part compatible with my car ?

I have been trying to find out if Remote Start, Same as Production - 82214097 | Mopar is compatible with my '14 SRT for a month now, and tried contacting both US and Middle East Chrysler, where the US one told me to contact the ME office, and the ME office didn't bother replying.

I called two branches of the same service center locally, and they both didn't give me a suitable answer. Both said that I will lose the trunk button, or have a total of 4 fobs (2 with trunk, 2 with remote start), which is stupid.
So I proposed to a more sensible service advisor that I would purchase the part from MOPAR (link above) and have them install it, they stated that they have the Scan tool so it should be fine, but they have no idea if it is compatible.

All I want to know if the following car specs are compatible :
---
Vehicle built on 10-23-2013.
Vehicle Description JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE SRT 4X4 SPORT UTILITY 4-DR
Model Year 2014
Body Model WK J X 74
GXXS Sentry Key TheftDeterrent System
GXDS Remote ProximityKeyless Entry
GX4S KeylessEnter-N-Go (Not sure why they have an S after each sale code)
---


*) Does anyone know how or where can I get confirmation on part compatibility, maybe someone here can find out ?

*) Otherwise, any hotline or Chrysler advisor number I can call and explain the problem to ?

*) Finally, does Remote Start, Same as Production - 82214097 | Mopar have all the buttons as the picture shows, or does it have the trunk button missing too ?

Re: Is this Part compatible with my car ?

Everything I read and understand says your car is compatable (as is mine). the issue seems to be whether or not your local dealer can or WILL do the update of the BCM to make it work (apparently our AUS dealers WONT do it, don't know about Dubai dealers).


The key fob shows all the buttons so I would expect that is what you get with the kit.

Why would dealers not choose to do the BCM update ?

Yeah, I contacted Chrysler asking the same question but they said ask the ME support, so basically I'm not sure if the picture truly represents the product. Wondering if someone purchased it from that same link can shed some light on this ?

Re: Is this Part compatible with my car ?

Dealers in Aus mostly do what JeepAU tell them to do.


Because it's not an option for the AUS market, JeepAU don't want anything to do with it, so therefore wont give the dealers the "code" to make it work. Only way around this is if some service technician knows a way to do it without JeepAU's help.

Re: Is this Part compatible with my car ?

Have you tried to email them to confirm the buttons and compatability?

Re: Is this Part compatible with my car ?

If you follow your link to the Mopar site, down the bottom left is a "contact us" link. You'll need your VIN etc to complete the email, worth a shot.

Yeah I've done that, they asked me to email Middle East Chrysler because they only deal with US based enquiries ..... And those guys aren't professional and wouldn't be able to help me, hence why they didn't reply to the email I sent them at all... eh.


*edit* Just sent another email, hopefully another representative is a bit more helpful.

Re: Is this Part compatible with my car ?

Ahhh, I guess I would get the same response being outside the US. Maybe one of our US SRT brothers could try?


I'm about to confirm an order for some parts from a US dealer, I might throw this question to him and see what he can find out.

Re: Is this Part compatible with my car ?

I've just had email confirmation that it WILL suit my model and that it DOES come with the four button remotes.


I'm checking with him if it has 2 remotes or only 1.


Then I need to find an AU dealer who will activate it........ he says rolling his eyes.
