astroman54 will become famous soon enough

The first thing that comes to mind, which you've already thougt of is the CAN Bus speed. Make sure that the radio is the High Speed version. If it isn't it will not turn on which leads me to your description of a black screen. I had some success using as a reference.. Their P/N is the last 4 digits of the Mopar P/N for the radio. So if you can find that number on there, it will let you know the bus speed.

A security code issue will form as the radio's screen will ask for the security code.. If it's a 2012 or older radio, 0000, 1111, or 1234 usually works. But I don't think it's your problem since there is nothing on the screen.

Let me know how you make out.. Or if I can help find what bus speed your radio is.
