    Uconnect 8.4 4C UAQ (2018) install into a 2017?

    Greetings!,

    I had the dealership install a 2018 Uconnect that I purchased from a (crashed 2018 SRT) into my 2017 RT - It did not work and the dealership was cluless. Does anyone have any idea's? Should it work? The unit does power on as you see the dodge then it goes black and does nothing.......I know we have some smarter people out here than the dealership and DEF smarter than me!

    Thank you for your thoughts and ideas'

    Sean

    I think you need to swap the USB hub, and that’s it.

    I did have them order the media hub - but not sure they switched it out before they tried installing......that could be the magical difference?

    I believe that is all that is needed for the Grand Cherokee and RAM UAQ swaps. Screen and hub and it should work.

    I figured it would at least power up and the media hub was to insure proper communication for android auto etc......I will give it a try. I to my truck back swapped the radio myself - back up cam works and it does show the Dodge symbol when powering down.....seems like that is backwards. Otherwise its a blank screen.

    Ok - I got it working, damn dealership did not plug it in all the way in the back.....just before I gave up, pushed it in a little better and poof - everything fired up. Imagine that. Media hub is needed for android auto....thats next!

    Definitely post after the media hub swap, and see if Android Auto/CarPlay works.

    How much did the used screen and hub set you back? Did you get it on eBay?

    Uconnect 8.4 4C UAQ (2018) install into a 2017?

    Defiantly keep us updated on if it’s fully functional with the hub. I would love to do this in my 2017.

    I wonder if once the guy that does the tazer cracks the 2018 SRT pages if they would work in the 2017 with this radio.
