2012 Jeep Wrangler - Power Doors Needed

Hello Forum,

I've been up and down google, this forum and all other forums trying to find a DIY to add power doors to my 2012 Wrangler 2Dr.

I've seen many out there that have used aftermarket actuators and such, but I want to stick to OEM. I've read several threads of people using the OEM power latch that they order from the Stealer and had the wiring done custom.

I'm having an alarm put it and was hoping to have the guy wire the power door latches up to the alarm. I need help with part numbers for the latches and any other parts i may need (3 stealers in Chicago were no help). Price is not an issue and yes i regret not getting the power package


Please help!!!

Thank you,

Nice find on that site. I'm in the same boat as you for my 2011 2 door. I wonder if any of these kits include the rear gate. Hoping you get some good replies so I can do this too.

Gents,
Confirmed with FACTORYMOPAR.COM that the part numbers above are correct - 2dr or 4dr:
Left Latch # 4589277AJ / Rt Latch # 4589276AJ
Left Front wire # 68005005AC / Rt frnt wire# 56051707AF

Here is the rub; still need parts to makeup a whole system - including the parts that make it keyless entry. Still researching!

I ordered these parts and I'm waiting to get power window parts too. I think just adding a viper or other keyless entry system to get the keyless entry part. I think that will do the trick but will update when I can get time off of work to put it all in.

I'm in the same boat. Decided to get a 2012 w/o power locks(keyless entry), and w/o power windows. Would like to here how it goes since I'll be getting back from my deployment soon and would like to add an alarm/keyless entry ASAP.

I'm thinking about doing this to my 2012 JKU, but want to know if it is really difficult to install. What other parts do you need besides the latches, wiring and the keyless entry system? Also, do they make similar part for the rear gate? Any advice would be helpful!

Sorry to bump up an older thread but i figured it would be better than starting an entire new one on the same topic.

I've seen quite a few threads of people talking about adding power door locks and what not, but this is as far as i've seen it go, they post part numbers then never update. Has one actually completed this? I have a keyless entry system, i just need to get the actuators, I'm wanting to just go the OEM route since it seems like the best option but i can't seem to find the OEM latches for my 2011 2dr.

Anyone that has actually completed this please post up, or PM me

I did it to mine, it was the gate door that drove me nut. You would think when you closed it it would lock like a trunk of of car. On my 2012 2dr jeep sport I ordered a 4 door kit so I would have a actuator for the rear gate. When I asked about OEM or aftermarket I was told to use the Swiss made kit and I did. Here is a link to the kit and the guys that sell it. When I was installing it I called them with a problem I was having and they walked me threw it.
Link---http://www.a1electric.com/mes.htm
Getting the doors apart the first time is a chore but after you figure out how they come apart it pretty straight forward.
I could not get anyone that would do it at any price. It cost me $240 for the parts and 4 hours to install them but this was my first time.
If anyone of you do it and need help PM me.

Forgot to mention if you go with the OEM kit there are no holes or brackets in your doors, even if you had the brackets no where in the direction does it tell you where they go or where to drill the wholes. So you will need to pay the dealer to do it, I was quoted 8 hours labor for the 3 door locks and wireless fob plus the parts. So if you want OEM your going to pay near $900 what a rip off.

Wow! Yea i'll probably pick up some universal actuators, i haven't seen the inside of the 2011+ door panels but hopefully it's not to far off of the other years so i can use the write ups for reference.

If your doors have rods style door the kit is really easy to install if it has cables that a different story. If you have cables do not splice the cable like so many kits say to, you'll be sorry. You need to go from actuator to the manual door lock itself. This is how I did mine.

Did you happen to take picture of unit installed inside door? I am doing this for a 2013 JKU and just ordered the MES hardware from A1Electric with the rods not cables.

Where did you grab the 12V? Also, I removed the 2 25torx and 2 philips screws to get the door panel off, but how to get off the roll down window handle?

thx

Might it be cheaper and easier to go to a wrecking yard and get the doors from a donor Jeep? Port all the hardware to your door skins?

Any auto parts store has a cheap tool to get the window crank handle off, I think it was $4.00 you can get it off with a screwdriver but if it slips you'll scratch your door and they slip a lot with out the tool. So you have the whole black inside panel off?
I had a picture I posted it on this forum a year ago and can't find it now. I deleted the picture from my computer. It was not my post so I have not been able to find it. Since I did mine I have helped 2 other guys do there's it get easier everytime. My actuator are mounted 3 inches under the latch and connected to the latch with a rod. For power I went to the battery and there's a fuse in the link. If you PM me I'll tell you why.

Bought my power window kit from:
Electric Life
No Door locks. (Soft top; pointless). Bought the factory switch/bezel from Mopar Online. Looks stock. Works great. The directions....meh.....
When you take the door off- take a picture so you remember how it all goes together. X2 on the door/clip popper from Auto Zone- the clip in the middle of the door is really tough to pop. Feels like you are going to break it and you can't really see it to make sure you're on it.
Just saw a guy in California on Craigs list selling all 4 doors for $800 I think. Worth checking your local edition.

Thanks. Got the door handle off and then the skin and the carrier plate. Now I need to get the window released then remove and reinstall latch with the actuator attached. I have the cables but am trying to get the actuator to the latch mechanism directly and leave the cable as is.

I'm about to dive into this over the next week or two...any additional parts you dug up?
