Jeep Mygig Radio won't turn on

I bought this Mygig radio off of a guy and when i plugged it into my jeep it won't turn on. Is there anyone that can point me in the right direction on what I can do to make it activate?

Was the radio out of another jeep? if not this might be the problem. I dont think radios from a dodge or other brand can fit in a jeep. Thought i read that somewhere but i might be wrong.

No, the guy I bought it from was out of a challenger, and I am not sure what to do.

Challenger is a dodge, that might be the problem. Talk to parts department at local dealer and see if that is the problem if all else fails, put it in for service. Might need something turned on with the computer to activate the head unit. that is all i can think about.

From my understanding..... It is dependant on the electrical bus speed. The mygig requires a high speed bus which only became available in 2007 on the Rubicon and Sahara Wranglers, then on all the 08 and newer.

Its because its a low speed. You need a high speed. I had the same problem as you.

I am researching the MyGig to put in a 2011 Wrangler. I found this site.

MyGIG radios _models RER_ REN and REU_

Do you guys know if all the MyGigs are the same size? Maybe that's a dumb question but I can get an older model MyGig cheaper.
