gatzby143 I just bought one out of '11 Dodge Nitro. Anyone have any idea what color the backlight on the buttons will be?

Travrsx Just installed my RBZ from a 2012 RAM. I bought it on eBay from a guy who had the radio pulled from his showroom new truck, and a nav unit installed. The 430 is a 05091170AC model and he provided the security code. It's a mid 2011 build with green backlighting.

It still had the old version 33.00.41 software, so the first thing I did was update to 50.00.07. Much better, I love the black theme.

This radio is a huge improvement, not only aesthetics but sound quality. I have read that some people don't notice a difference, but I did. Also, it drives my (mopar kicker "KICK10") speakers much louder. Cruising in the highway used to require my volume to be set at or above 75%... Now the same volume is achieved closer to 50%. Really surprising.

Also, I love being able to see what songs are playing on all my sirius presets without tuning to that station.

I'm really happy! Thanks to everyone who posted info in this thread.

Gumbys69 Remember to check your local Autowrecker, I got mine from there for $200 Canadian, so probably cheaper in the US. I have a scan tool that can see how long it has actually been used and how many discs have been played in it. I lucked out and got one that had played 3 discs and been used just over 10 hours so it was pretty much brand new AND it had the green backlit buttons and changed to the Jeep logo right away. Check the wreckers guys!!!!

Killingtonvt I just purchased and installed a 430 RBZ that I found on Ebay. The seller is mygigsales and is selling newer Sirius/Antitheft units for $369. They were able to confirm green back lights for me! The model number I received is p05091327ae.

Hope that helps!

bassani the ones i have been seeing on eBay have been the "RB2" versions which supposedly dont support Sirius b/c they were pulled from vehicles going to foreign countries.

Is that the case?

What is the exact model number of the most current US version of the 430 unconnect w/o nav?

Tnewcomb Just installed one I got from Ebay for $250. Excellent upgrade from the stock radio and only took 15 minutes to install.

If you want to add a backup camera and/or the uconnect hands free blue tooth module, that's when it will need to be flashed. If you want to add both, have both sales codes flashed at the same time. My dealer charged 1/2 hour labor to do them. Having them done separate would cost you twice.
UConnect is a must and the backup camera option was why I wanted the 430.

DallasJKU I went ahead and took dash apart. Pretty easy. I wanted to see if I could somehow pull the radio back into place. The radio was shoved back when I had a full-size portable soccer goal pushing against it. The mounting bracket won't pull back into place. The bottom of my radio is still shoved 1/4-3/8" back and I can't seem to pull it back into place without snapping everything. Any ideas??

DallasJKU So the seller got back to me and said he has sold 7-8 of these units without the codes and everyone of them the buyer took to dealer and they unlocked the 430 for them. Does this sound right??
11-28-2014 08:46 AM
wrix They'll be green. Score!

Would the buttons be blue if it was a 509 from a '13 Rubicon??

I sent him an email. We will see what happens. They have a 100% rating and lots of sales so I feel confident he will take care of it. Wouldn't it have green lights if it came from a '13 a Rubicon??

I paid $315 on eBay. I just wanted a stock system that had touchscreen and backup camera option for later. I only read first two pages of this thread so hopefully I chose the correct one that is plug and play.

According to seller he stated the following:
"It slides in and mounts from the front with screws. The wires connect in the rear. The Model # is P05064678AF"

Thanks!
From the link, it stated it was from a 2010 Van and High speed. It would work, but it's the older version, so the splash screen will stay Chrysler. It can NOT be updated to where newer models are at now. Look for a 2011+.

2012 + will need a lock code, so make sure you can get that.

Rammer500 The 2011 model year 506, from what I can tell is the same as the newer 509's other than the anti-theft and has green back lighting rather than blue. Some 509's are still green but, most are blue. The 2010 and back will not switch the splash screen (Dodge, Jeep, Chrysler)as determined by the VIN number. 2012's+ (all 509's) will need the lock code from the seller to use. Look at the label on the unit for the build date.
11-21-2014 02:13 AM
movi3king I thank you both.
Can you just break down how to read the break down of the numbers to read the build?

Also what are the key differences between what a 506 and 509 will do?

Thank you.
