Uconnect 130 CD/MP3 confusion

Good morning/afternoon/evening folks. I have searched and have failed thus far. I have a 130 radio in my 2013 JK. I downloaded the build sheet from mopar and downloaded the window sticker as well. The build sheet says

Well I tried to finish, but noooo...



Anyway, the build sheet says I have a Radio 130, but the window sticker says Uconnect® 130 CD/MP3


My question is, how can I have a Uconnect with no telephone option. Short of pulling the panel under the radio, is there something I can check?


Help a lost confused fellow out

Not from mine, but here are pictures of what I have. Same buttons as my 17 Patriot, except the radio is different. No phone on it

If you have uconnect you have to has some kind of action button. On the stereo or the wheel. I have seen the addon uconnect have a phone button that is stuck to the dash.

Unless they are different in 13 for some reason.

Hence the reason I am confused. I guess my next step will be look for a module? Maybe it is prewired (or module installed) for upgrade?


I always thought the button was on the radio (as was my 15 Compass and 17 Patriot) or on the steering wheel as I have seen on other vehicles

Do you have a usb connection in the center console? That normally runs to the Uconnect device?

You are probably better off just pulling the 4 screws to remove the panels and look though.

I do not have a USB, only an outlet (for power)



I had planned to pull the panel, but mother nature decided to explode with thunderstorms... so that will be next on my list

Update and awakening

I have been searching for a solution to the question about my radio, and looking at upgrades and have come to a startling conclusion. I don't need a upgrade. I wanted one. New Toy and wanted to 'make it mine'

Well I have already. Little things. The radio upgrades I thought I wanted were bluetooth (I am a mommas boy who calls mom every day (46 and still don't care)) and usb to listen to audio books during my morning commute.

The solution was there all along. I had a cheap bluetooth/usb adapter I bought off amazon for about 20 bucks last year and I have been using it since I got the JK a couple weeks ago, and it works perfect.

I have been so obsessed with 'upgrades' I couldn't see the forest for the trees.



With that being said, the radio upgrade is on indefinite hold. The bluetooth adapter works great and meets EVERY need I have, PLUS as a bonus, I think folks are less likely to steal a 130 head unit

tl;dr: No need to upgrade, had solution all along. Will spend money on other stuff like carpet/bedrug
