    Bid Daddy will Alfa OBD allow audio, radio control adjustment, speaker fade?
    Looks like the option is there on the dealer side?


    REAR SPEAKER ENABLE AM, FM, MP3 Radio - RH3
    ProMaster vans equipped with the RH3 radio are shipped from the factory with the fader control set to full front as the vehicle does not come equipped with rear speakers. If the fade is set to the rear with no rear speakers connected, little to no sound would be heard. If rear speakers are added, simply shift the fade setting more towards the rear until the desired front/rear bias is achieved.
    AM, FM, CD, UConnect, Blue Tooth Radio - RA2
    ProMaster vans equipped with the RA2 radio are shipped from the factory with the rear speakers turned off as the vehicle does not come equipped with rear speakers. If the speakers were turned on with no speakers connected, diagnostic routines in the radio would set rear speaker faults. If rear speakers are added, the speakers must be turned on by the dealer. This is done by adding ACTIVATE REAR SPEAKERS sales code (5SW) to the VIN as a dealer installed option and then reconfiguring the vehicle. Sales code 5SW is not available from the factory. This is a dealer installed option only.
    NOTE: To eliminate the setting of fault codes, rear speakers should only be enabled AFTER the rear speakers have been installed and electrically connected to the radio.
    NOTE: Thisservicecallwillnotbecoveredunderwarranty.Dealerchargesmayapply.
    After the speakers are installed, the dealer will add sales code 5SW to the vehicle using the VEHICLE OPTION UPDATES page in DEALERCONNECT. A link to the page can be found in the WARRANTY ADMINISTRATION pane under the SERVICE tab.
    Once the sales code has been added, the vehicle must be reconfigured. The next two steps must be completed in order.

    First reconfigure the BCM by using the RESTORE BCM PROXI CONFIGURATION routine in WiTech. This routine can be found under the VEHICLE PREPERATIONS tab in the VEHICLE VIEW.
    Second, update radio configurations from the BCM. Do this by using the PROXI ALIGNMENT PROCEDURE routine in WiTech. This routine can also be found under the VEHICLE PREPERATIONS tab in the VEHICLE VIEW.

    After the vehicle has been reconfigured, a hard reset of the BCM should be performed and all fault codes that may have been set during the process should be cleared.
    The speaker fade control will now be visible in the audio control menu of the radio and the rear speakers will now function.
    Speaker Installation
    For speaker installation and specifications, see the See “UPFITTERS RADIO CONNECTOR” document under the “ELECTRICAL/WIRING INFORMATION” heading in the Body Builder’s Guide.

    Thanks Dave

    I've never mess with any Uconnect radio functions because I replaced my stereo with the Tesla style radio 30 days after I bought my truck. but I will reach out to some highly intelligent individuals and see if we can help you solve your problem brother.

    So with huge thanks to [email protected] or @Hemi395 in this forum, I had 100% success turning off MDS with a Diablo T1000 tuner. Here's a short video of how this was accomplished. Thank you for your help sir!
    AND HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA!

    Thank you, Big Daddy. I watched your setting mileage/hours video last night while programming my new-to-me 7" EVIC. Lots of hitting pause on my phone while making the Alfa changes on my tablet. Worked great!
