So, now that I was able to play with it properly, I found 3 issues:
1- passenger side heated and cooled seat controls missing;
2- backup camera missing;
3- vehicle configuration pages missing;
I am upgrading from a vp4ca to an UAV. The truck is a 2016 ram 1500 with dual zone AC already. The physical buttons and work fine as well as the soft buttons in the radio, at least for the features that are not missing.
Can someone shine some light on this? please

Do you have any dtc in the radio at all ?
No DTCs, but I checked it right after turning it on. Maybe should I wait for some time and check again?
Is my rearview camera even expected to work with this radio at all, since it does not use the fakra connector?
How about the vehicle configuration pages and passenger heated and cooled seats?

Thanks!

Have you tried looking for a software update for it ?
Also maybe try doing a factory reset .
There should be a option in the radio to do a factory reset

The ECU reset for the radio on AlfaOBD did the trick! Thank you very much! Everything worked!
I am trying to get the donor of the radio to check on Uconnect for updates. I do not have the VIN number from the donor vehicle.

So if I wanted to do this conversion in my 2014 laramie I would need to get a new bcm? And what about the harness to the module? Does it just connect straight up or do I have to make a custom harness to re pin in to the new radio module? I did try doing a lot of research and found that it seems that most pins line up
