No uconnect after install 2015 wrangler

Post by mhornco » Mon Oct 02, 2017 1:39 pm

I have a 2015 wrangler that had the original 130 radio unit and uconnect. It has RES on the lower front corner and the phone button and VR button on the top if the deck as well as steering wheel controls. I added a Kenwood DNX 573S used the ADS-MRR module and HRN-RR-CH1 adapter. When everything is hooked up it seems there is no longer any uconnect. Steering wheel controls work for radio but the VR and phone button result in nothing. When I press the VR button is says no BT connection

Did you hook up the blue/white amp turn-on wire from the CH1 to the radio?

If you hit the PHONE button on the wheel, do you hear the uConnect lady talking to you?

There is an audio cable that's supposed to run from the maestro to the radio - an all black cable, with 3 pins on one side, and a headphone jack on the other. Make sure that's being used, and that it's plugged into the "iDatalink I/F" port of the kenwood.
