The rep just keeps saying it can be done?? Am going back to the dealer next week to try with the newer version of the starscan 2.6(I think). Just wondering if anyone else has experience with 06's.
im doing mine this weekend so ill be able to say yeah or nay
but Im pretty sure when ordering the switches you have to MAKE SURE they are switches for a 2006, as the resistors are different
when I ordered mine online they were options for 2003, 2004, 2005, and 2006 specific switches, so think the newer style radiso require ONLY the 2006 marked switches. since the decks are clearly different-- even thhough the switches have the same model number
if you go to makitemopar.com, and drop in the switch part number for left/right youll see what I mean about the year options
and side questions
those with the SWIX adapation (AFTERMARKET DECK ONLY)
since im cutting the +5V wire and splicing INTO the harness end and taping of the rest of the wire that terminates back towards the MUX connector behind the dash (STOCK Grey/White wire--- those without
stock +5V/Ground will have varying colors of course)
do I even need to connect this wire to behind the dash (C4 MUX connector PIN 12)? since im going to cut it anyway to splice to the WHITE wire of the PAC SWIX?
save me some time if I dont have to pull the dash peices thats all
and is it possible to put BOTH swithces on the LEFT hand side of the steering wheel?? I drive with one hand, and it would be great to have the controls on one side. I noticed that the switches on the RIGHT side (volume) has the wire connector that would make it tight, just wondeirng if there was enough room to do this
