Need help installing lockpick on 2013 JKUR
 
I had my local audio shop install the lockpick on 730n RHR and just made a mess. I have taken it back three times, and every time he fixes something he messes something else. I need a good reliable recommendation for a shop that installs lockpicks. I am willing to travel a couple of hours if needed.

I installed mine myself a while back. It's pretty simple plug-n-play. The only time-consuming part was running the wires from my front and rear cameras. And the only tough part was finding little nooks and crannies in the dash to stuff all the wires and connectors and the box in. I don't know what they could have done to screw it up. What's wrong with it?

My stereo shop put mine in and it took about 2 hours. I also had them run the wiring for my CB since they had everything torn apart for the backup camera.

The only issue I had was when the dealer did the wiring harness for us to tow the Jeep behind the RV, the lockpick got confused. It somehow made my navigation not know where I was. The guy at the stereo shop fixed it in about 10 minutes with some setting and it's been perfect ever since.

What area are you located in? It may help someone to refer you somewhere.

I should've added that they also installed speakers and amp, LCI, etc. According to the installer the fact that an amp was installed it doesn't make it plug and play anymore. The shop said they needed to reroute all lot of the wiring. The lockpick appears to be installed and all the functions are available on the screen, the screen does black out when in reverse or forward (also installed a front camera). I added an external monitor to use as a second screen and that ones does show both cameras, so that tells me that the cameras are functional, just not showing on the Head unit. I am located in the Palm Springs area, just blocks from where they hold the Coachella music fest venue.
