2014 Ram questions

Post by losingit » Mon Feb 29, 2016 3:14 pm

I am looking at replacing the factory 8.4A radio with a Kenwood DDX9902S and the Maestro RR.

I have a few questions I am hoping you can assist me with -

1. Once installed will I lose any functionality?
2. Will the factory installed mic work or will I need to install the Kenwood mic as well?
3. Will I need to splice any wires to get the factory rear view camera to work? (currently displayed in radio)
4. Will I be able to make changes to the climate control? I read somewhere there were some issues with some radios and the climate control.
5. What harnesses will be needed to complete the install?

Thank you in advance!

1. You will lose uConnect.
2. You will need to install the kenwood microphone.
3. No, the camera just plugs in to the new radio.
4. Yes.
5. You will need the ADS-MRR and the CH3 harness.
