  2. Confusing question that was asked to me

    Electrical and Audio
    Hey all I've recently bought a 2008 Patriot, second hand. I'm looking to upgrade the head unit. Previous owner had removed OEM headunit, and replaced it with an Alpine single DIN one, seemingly many years ago. It needs to be replaced, and I am going to upgrade it to (google this, as I can't...
  3. Mirror tap

    Electrical and Audio
    Anyone used one of these? I want to install my new radar detector high on my windshield and don't want cords dangling. If you installed one, how hard was it to fit the probes into the wiring harness? I know you have to have an auto dimming mirror for this to work, got that covered.

  5. MOPAR trailer wiring harness

    Electrical and Audio
    Wanting to avoid problems with the TIPM I bought the MOPAR wiring harness, 82209280AD, for my 2014 Patriot. I'd read here that it gets power from a plug/wire behind the driver's side tail light, so I figured this was going to be an easy install. I ripped open the plastic bag to find an...

    Electrical and Audio
    I have an 08' Patriot Sport and a while back my rear hatch stopped unlocking. All the doors still unlock just find when I hit the unlock button both on the driver door and on the key twice. I was wondering if anyone could link me to somewhere or assist me in troubleshooting the issue. I have...
  7. Running Wire (Off-Road Lights near front Bumper)

    Jeep Patriot General Discussion
    I have never done any electrical work to a vehicle before. I also have watched a bunch of videos recently to build up my confidence :D Where is the easiest place to run the wire into the cab? I am wanting to mount the switch to the right of the steering wheel where the plastic panel comes off...
  8. Hitch wire harness

    Electrical and Audio
    Hi everyone, quick question, does the Mopar wiring harness for hitches require a program change on the Patriots computer? I wouldn't think so but someone mentioned it to me... Thanks Steven

    Jeep Patriot General Discussion
    My Patriot came with the towing option, but the wiring harness is in a bag, not installed, how hard is this to hook up?
  10. Yellow connectors under each bucket seat.

    Hi all, This is my first post. It's nice to find a place where everyone else knows about the car I drive :) I just had an Alpine touchscreen GPS head unit installed and as a result the stock speakers weren't cutting it so I installed 4 x 6x9's speakers in the doors. Sound great if you like...
  11. Pass. side in-cabin to eng. bay access point...

    Electrical and Audio
    So I have recently seen many folks asking about where they can run wires from the engine bay to inside to the cabin. I once also had this question and thanks to some of the elders on here I was able to locate a spot on the passenger side. Seeing as it is still a question that pops up. I...
  12. Amplifier wiring from engine bay? Help!

    Electrical and Audio
    So I began tearing apart the Jeep's interior for my amp(s) install. I have already run my RCAs from the dash to the rear along the passenger side of the Jeep under all the molding. Now I am stuck. I cannot find a spot to fish the power wire through the firewall. Apparently I need to keep...
  13. Extra high beam wiring

    Electrical and Audio
    I am in the process of adding extra lights to my Jeep. The physical installation is pretty well planned, but what remains are a few uncertainties over the electrical wiring. While there are some discussions on wiring extra lights, the situations were a bit different so I figured I'd create a new...
  14. 2010 Wiring harness questions

    Electrical and Audio
    I'm looking to replace the head unit in my 2010 patriot with the Sony XAV-60. Does anyone know if the Axxess XSVI-6522 will fit? I think they changed the adapter between 08 and 09, just wondering if the 2010's are the same? Also, are there any other options for the illumination wire? Aside...
  15. Cruise control not responding

    Electrical and Audio
    I just installed a factory cruise control on my 08 PAT. I checked the wiring twice and still nothing. Does the computer need to be flashed or will it recognize the cruise control after a few hours of running?
  16. Here is a remote starter wiring guide including pictures

    Electrical and Audio
    I recently buy a remote starter a it gives me a one time access to the database of wiring and location pictures of wires. It is for a JEEP PATRIOT 2009, maybe it's the same for 2007-2008. At your own risk! See attached files. PM me if you would like the original files in 1024X768.
  17. Headlight & Windshield wiper levers

    Electrical and Audio
    All of a sudden today, my blinker/headlight control lever and my windshield wiper levers both stopped working simultaneously. I've never had any indication of a problem before this, so it seems very surprising. I've removed all the dash area panels to expose the wiring coming from and in the...
