all of that is false. and that kit is from mopar, that's mopar's online website. you have to bring it to the dealer to be programmed, but doing the install yourself will not void the warranty.
ha ha ok... Your dealer will not honor your warranty if you have fudged, added, or removed factory installed equipment. I used to be a Chevrolet F-Body mechanic, i know how warranties work. If you take your vehicle in with an additional part added and you just have them program it they WILL NOT warranty that produt if it faults itself or the radio. The CANNOT gurantee the install was done correctly. This VOIDS the warranty on that particular product. The item needs to be added to your system BY the DEALER for them to warranty ANY OF IT! If you go to any Jeep Website and look at the mopar market place youll see this disclaimer.
Lets say by chance you install this part and for some odd chance your dash burns out and you go in for warranty work and they see oh wait there is extra **** on here that didnt come with the vehicle. As the mechanic i would void your warranty, notify the service writer who then notes that on the vehicle history and then gets your Retail Prices on Flat rate and parts costs for the repair.
For you to maintain your factory warranty on factory equipment the dealer must install the equipment. period. Dont believe me ask your service writer.
I voided my warranty by adding what i did. If my Vehicle Dash Information system burns out, thats my problem since it directly ties to the can bus system and the radio, if the rear view mirror auto dimmer burns out thats my problem since i hd to interface my reverse camera with the reverse switch, if i blow the speakers, its my problem since i added a more powerful aftermarket radio, etc etc... get the picture.
Youre not an MECP installer, or an authorized dealer or mechanic with insurance to cover such incidents. When Best Buy installs prodcuts and it causes damage to your vehicle Best Buy pays for the repairs because the install VOIDS YOUR WARRANTY!
and just because you were irrtating me i looked it up for you...
