Default RBZ radio background and color change

Ive installed a used RBZ out of a Chrysler and gotten my Uconnect done. Its been in there a week and it still shows the Chrysler badge instead of a Ram symbol. Also, the color always starts out in yellow, but if i drive it long enough it will go to the whitish-blue of the Ram gauges but always defaults back when i turn it off. Ive read on here that the radio will "learn" the vehicle its in, but am i missing something?

Hmmmmm, sounds like it may be defective. I also swapped my RES for an RBZ from Ebay. When I first turned it on if showed the chrysler logo however quickly switched to the RAM. So far it has stayed with RAM and I have the whitish-blue screen all the time. Maybe check your connections since this info comes from the Can bus.

I never heard of the radio learning what it is in
until you reset the default, it will always think it is in the original vehicle
whether it was a Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, or Ram

go to the OEMAUTOPARTS website
enter your vehicle info
several radios will pop up
pick RBZ 430
if you look at the left of the page, it should have the RBZ radio MANUAL
start reading

When I upgraded to the RBZ from the RES radio I had the Chrysler logo pop up first but within a few seconds it switched to the Ram logo automatically. The radio came out of a wrecked Town and Country mini van so it was initialy in a Chrysler.
