2013 radio harness ?

ok i read the write up for the aftermaket radio install and also did some searching and i see conflicting things all over...


i have a 2013 wrangler unlimited sport. it has uconnect but the basic double din radio (not infity not alpine etc)

i just bought a nice pioneer double din with blue tooth sattelite blah blah blah

i ordered the steering wheel adapter, the deck etc some how forgetting to order the harness

now here is my question : which harness do i need?

i see this one Amazon.com: PAC C2R-CHY4 Radio Replacement Interface for Chrysler: Car Electronics

and i also saw suggestions for this one Amazon.com: Axxess XSVI-6522 07-Up Chrysler CAN Rap Retention Harness Adapter: Car Electronics

they are both around $60 but i just want to make sure i order the correct one bc when i "enter vehicle info" on amazon it says they wont fit

sorry for the long essay, please help!

The PAC harness should work, I don't know about the Metra one. Be warned that some people have reported issues with the CHY4 harness not working with the latest 2013 CANBUS firmware; I haven't had that issue with my '13 but I can't guarantee that you won't, so you might want to do a little more investigation.

I'm sorry, I can't give you any more definitive an answer than I have. I don't have a problem with the CHY4 running an aftermarket stereo in my '13, but others have reported that it doesn't work and that PAC have an issue with the latest firmware. I don't know if that's a problem that's replicated across Metra, Scosche or anyone else's harness.

Off the top of my head, I believe it was a December '12 manufacture date. It's on a label on the inside of one of the doors, I think.

I don't think you will, but I have a build date from Sept if I remember right. Mine works fine now that I FINALLY got around to getting it done. I did have to reset the PAC unit after I plugged it all in before my steering wheel controls would work. It doesn't say to do this on the instructions, it just states it is pre-programmed and ready once plugged in, so I had a momentary freak out rechecking all my wires at first. Once I reset it my steering wheel controls were working like they labeled.
