Smile Re: Lockpick install writeup

I did though, have a disturbing problem today. Most functions of the CHR550 stopped working, including the backup camera even when shifted into reverse. Not sure if the Nav operation worked while...

Re: March UConnect TSB and SMS Text to Speech

I had the dealer do the update TSB 08-019-12 on my 2011. My BB Torch 9800 still doesn't work with SMS.

Re: RHR 730 with CHR550 - backup camera issue fixed

It's the Chr550 harness you are modifying, not the stock radio harness. Or am I misunderstanding you?

Re: RHR 730 with CHR550 - backup camera issue fixed

It works in all the other modes. Press uConnect twice in succession, but not too quickly, to turn on. Do the same to turn it off.

Re: RHR 730 with CHR550 - backup camera issue fixed

I have used the rear camera in forward while trailering my boat.

Well, I can no longer supply a picture of the backup screen prior to the fix, but the colour was almost black and white, blurry and...

Bummer.
Haven't checked around, but I wonder if others that have the RHR and done this have your problem.

Re: RHR 730 with CHR550 - backup camera issue fixed

Tapping the uConnect button is great because your music or whatever will still be playing.

Re: RHR 730 with CHR550 - backup camera issue fixed

Thanks lakercr. Having the pics supplied by Coastaletech is invaluable. It's always nerve-racking cutting wires (and joining) when you are not absolutely sure which are the correct ones!

Re: Key not Detected

As It did for me, just taking the battery out and cleaning it as well as the contacts can solve the problem.

Re: RHR 730 with CHR550 - backup camera issue fixed

"FIX". "Work Around". "Mod". Whatever the term, I imagine that all harnesses that Coastaletech ships now route the signal direct to the head unit the same as this alteration accomplishes.

And, as...

Re: RHR 730 with CHR550 - backup camera issue fixed

On my 2011 GC, I have the 430N RHB and with the Chr550 installed, had the same washed out backup camera screen and the bad video others have complained about. I contacted Coastaletech service...

Re: Damaged Key Notice?

Try cleaning the battery and contacts before replacing the battery. Seems there must be a bit of corrosion building up. I did this 5 weeks ago and my FOB has been perfect ever since. It is still the...

Re: Lockpick install writeup

Just did it and it can be done with the Lockpick still installed. Without it being held against the top of the glove box, it is a bit in the way and awkward. Considering it was my first time, it is...

Re: Lockpick install writeup

Hmmmm. Never done it nor known about it! But checking the forums, it looks like I should.

Re: Lockpick install writeup

I installed my CHR550 on the upper tray of the glove box of my 2011 GC. The harness and the ipod cable are fed through the "grill" in the roof of the box. The ipod cable is fed down through the right...

Re: Infamous "key not detected" problem.

Took the advice of others and removed and reinstalled the battery in each of my FOBs. Tested each using the remote start function, and lo and behold, they both worked first time!!

One of the FOBs...

Re: Infamous "key not detected" problem.

I too am having a similar problem in my 2011. I get the "Key Not Detected" message. And sometimes the doors will not unlock when touching the handle. Remote start is also intermittent. Eventually...
