I would be interested in your progress as I have blind spot cameras on my mirrors and would love to auto activate based on signals.Translating the message won't be much of an issue once we identify the expected value. I will look through some of my resources to see what I find. I am already doing that to make blind spot work on Gen4 1500s.
Were you looking for 0x170 on CAN C or CAN IHS?
That is awesome! Maybe you can do something like that for owners with Heated/Cooled seats and Heated wheel to get the radio soft controls to work.It works!
It's a very messy setup right now but I'm just going to tape it all up and zip tie it under the knee panel for now so I can get some time with it and make sure it doesn't accidentally screw with anything else. I've got another board on the way that's already got the two CAN transceivers attached which should make it a much better DIY solution for anyone else who would want to try this. I'll do a writeup for this once I'm confident it won't mess anything up.
Where can I get the pin for the adapter plug. I would like to tap power from the usb power socket purple wire.Make sure your 2018 jumpseat/usb hub is NOT constantly illuminated with the key off as it may drain the battery. This is a known issue with the console lid swap ... Depends on the year/config of your truck.... You may have to remove the hub illumination wire from a connector if it happens... +12v B+ on earlier trucks). See post 5 for issue with console lid.
Seems like there needs to be a class action lawsuite, giving that they are selling crap stuff, price gouging, and cornering the market of parts. I almost bought from them but durring research, actually called and talked to them, then I found these forums and Mpgrimm2's help. I am really glad you guys are here. God bless you all.Agreed on all points above. The biggest issue is the price of used parts has gone up drastically. If I want to try to test some things with a 2020 gen4 cluster or a gen 5 cluster, I have to race Infotainment to try to snap it up before they do. The genies are hilariously priced, they want something like $200 to enable the cargo cam which is a total of 1 setting in the BCM. The clusters aren't better, a gen 5 cluster upgrade from them is $1700 for the gen 5 HDs. A brand new, top priced cluster is $900 from the dealer or can be found brand new online at your favorite Mopar parts supplier for $600 and that's for new parts instead of the used parts you are getting from infotainment. So that $1k mark up is for them to match the mileage which I am assuming they are using AlfaOBD to do.
I am seeing the same thing with the 12inch UAX screens and radios. Just a few months ago, you were able to find them on LKQ and car-part without issue. I haven't seen them in months on either site.
I spend a decent amount on buying other parts to test and figure if it can be made to work in our trucks. I hate having to be more careful on the information I post because I expect to see it replicated by infotainment in short order. There are couple of us in the background that are trying to get the 360 surround view working on the gen4s and we all have spent a bunch of money trying different parts to get the trucks to play along. Once we get it figured out, no doubt about us posting that information here for anyone else that wants to attempt it.
Where can I get one of these? I will pay good for it?
