Default Question about adding the Compass/Homelink module???

My '12 Express has the Trailer Brake option so it already has the EVIC option
so it displays the temperature only without the compass. I added the overhead console with the Compass/Temp/Homelink module.

All the lights on the console and the Homelink buttons light up too. When pressing the Homelink it displays "Transmitting Channel" in the EVIC but the Compass doesn't display. This tells me the EVIC has a good connection to the new module.

Do I need to have the dealer add sales code JFJ (Temperature and Compass Gauge) to my truck's configuration in order to enable the compass to display ?

Nobody has done this???

Next Wednesday I'm going to have the dealer add the JFJ sales code and see what happens. With any luck the compass will display.

Look at this post.

Adding an Overhead Console to an ST - Page 2 - Dodge Ram Forum - Ram Forums and Owners Club! - Dodge Truck Forum

But since you have the trailer evic option no rewiring should be required. Possibly adding the sales code will work if your VIN allows it.

That should be interesting if the code is available. My truck does have the premium tire pressure monitoring system since it has the EVIC cluster so maybe the sales code JFJ for the Temperature and Compass Gauge will be available. If not I'll need to find a programmer around the St. Louis area.

I have been reading through several different forums and cant seem to get an answer. What part number did you use for overhead console? Did you already have console and just swap it out? We're the wires plug and play or did you have to splice wires? Do you have any pictures.

Your going to need the following parts:

Console retainer: 55365119AC
Overhead Console: 1PQ03BD1AA without cutout for Homelink (base).
3 pin connector pinout: 68064999AA

**Remember, these parts are for the basic no frills console. If you want to add options you will need different consoles.

Overhead Console with Garage Door Opener ONLY: 1PQ06BD1AA

jmr,

I'm about to order the overhead console and try tackling this. What is the 3-way connector? What is the easiest way to wire the map lights?

I've attached the wiring diagram that I used to make my harness for the console. It will tell you which cavities in the connectors need to be used.
