2016 jeep renegade

Post by crystalautoglass » Fri Nov 10, 2017 7:07 pm

Installed maestro rr and ch3 on 2016 renegade with kenwood ddx374bt. Deck, speaker output, steering wheel controls all work well. It would never connect to vehicle to display information, which the customer did not care too much about anyway, but after install the odometer was flashing and we could not turn off or go to trip meter. There are no codes in vehicle, not sure if we need to reset something.

Use the install type for the renegade found on page 12 of the guide (for Jeep Renegade 3.0 RA1 2015-2017) and it should fix all those issues.

So that took care of the other problems, now we have used both microphone wires and still don't have that up and running, any ideas?

The OEM microphone is not able to be retained in this vehicle. You must use the Kenwood microphone.

Customer also was asking about temp and compass, was that a function of the factory deck?

I don't understand your questions. What temperatures are you asking about- external temperature? More than likely, the OEM compass was built into the deck. Since the DDX radio is non-nav, they would lose the compass.

There was an external temp and compass displayed on the dash somewhere, (I never saw it). But the customer said it was there before we replaced his radio. I do remember seeing a gps logo on the factory deck, had no navigation or anything, but assuming the vehicle might have used it for direction. Just wondering if you knew anything.

The compass was built into the OEM radio, so unfortunately they will lose that with the new radio installation as Dara indicated.
