Question Do I have U-Connect, or not?

I found this forum searching for information on the Wrangler U-Connect system. When I purchased my vehicle a year and a half ago I tried syncing my phone with the radio/nav/hard drive system. When I pushed the button to use the U-Connect system I got a message that said U-Connect was not installed on my vehicle. I took my vehicle to the dealership last week to have U-Connect installed and they quoted me $780.00!

Some research on this forum turned up a thread that, though over a year old, contained information suggesting that U-Connect may already be installed on my vehicle but inactivated.

Does anyone have any current information on this? Can I simply purchase a microphone kit, install it myself, do a softward upgrade and use my U-Connect?

Any help is appreciated!

Thanks!

I would assume the sahara come stock with uconnect but I may be wrong.
Regardless go to your dealer or another and ask them to see the build sheet and window sticker for your jeep. If it states ucconect, tell them you want it for free!!
If they say they can not get a build sheet, PM pat from fields jeep (a site vendor) tell him your issue and he can look up by your vin# your build sheet
good luck

Do you have a mic? It would be either in the mirror or by the drivers side visor. What radio do you have? Also if its the res,req,rhb,rbz or ren radio, look in the center console for a lited usb connector. If you don't see it, then theres no uconnect installed. You can find the mopar kit online pn 82212159 & usb / ipod cable pn 82212160. The install is quite simple if you work on your own vehicle. After the installation, you'll need to go to the dealer to have the vehicle flashed for uconnect. The dealer wi.l try to charge yoh an hr labor. Let them know that it takes a 1/2 hr and you'll pay 50 bucks.

If your radio is an rhr, then you can get a mic kit, install the mic and have the vehicle flashed for uconnect.

If you have a rer nav radio you have the uconnect module built in. All you need is the new wiring harness, a mic and the cable that plugs in the new harness and to the mic. You'll need to take it in to the dealership for them to activate the hsm module in the radio.

did your dealer give you the build sheet? I find it hard to belive a sahara does not have it... On my build sheet has code AAJ conductivity group... that group consists of many other items you have on your sheet... think they removed it? or did you get it from another source

Found a U-Connect kit I'm going to buy. There are so many, I hope it's the one I need. It's Mopar part # 82211755AB

I have emailed a forum member for installation instructions. If anyone else has them, please send them my way.
