Just got the connect stuff I ordered from ebay. Have a few questions and need some clarifications. First...the roof harness on my car that plugs into the mirror has 5 wires, the cut off end that was sent with the mirror, and I assume I do not use, has 6 wires. Any ideas what the 6th wire is? I thought our stock mirror plug from our roof harnesses were a direct plug n play? My stock mirror is the auto dimming type.

Second, can everyone please look at the included picture and tell me what I am missing please? The partial harness at bottom is the clipped off mirror harness with 6 wires, from the Town & Country this came out of. I am certain the 4 whitish/yellow plugs are for the satellite radio antenna and I will not be using those. I am pretty sure that the square black plug also plugs into the back of the mirror next to there the regular mirror plug is at...it fits the hole. The square GRAY plug in the middle does not fit anything and I can only assume it would have plugged into the satellite radio box, especially with its proximity to the connector ends for the antenna which would have to plug into the same satellite radio box. Again, if it is part of the satellite radio function, I will not be using this. So, this leaves the black and the gray plug receivers on the uconnect unit. What needs to plug into each? I think I am missing he harness that goes from the unit to the radio, can anyone verify this? And that leaves one more hole...what goes there?!

I know this is a lot of questions, and I have tried to be as clear as possible. If anyone knows this if, os has done this install and can break down what I have right and wrong and well as what to do from here, I would be VERY thankful!!!

P.S. The mirror itself looks great and lights up. BUT I need to get everything connected!!! Thank you ahead of time!!!

So I have looked and looked and I need the short harness (Jumper) that will connect the UConnect module to the RB1 still! I have run across a number of part numbers and even the dealership shows a handful of part numbers. Some are with satellite radio, others with DVD... I need one that is 10 pin on both sides. The seller who I bought this setup from sent me the jumper harness separately after I requested it but the black connector is too wide and has two additional wires for DVD. Can ANYONE PLEASE direct me to members who have installed factory UConnect in their LH vehicle. I really need to know which jumper harness I need. I can't risk ordering the wrong one and not being able to return it, most are listed at well over $100!

Okay, well after narrowing it down and it seemed like I had the right part number, I took a chance on harness 4869387AC. And it WORKED! So it is for sure the right one for anyone that may run across this. Now I paid about $150, the price seems to be rising as the years pass. It has worked well so far but I do need to figure out everything I can do with it and how to fully operate it. Does anyone have or know where I can find an owners manual for operating this style factory UConnect? Thanks as always!!!

Well in case it helps someone else down the road, I found that there is not a separate owners manual for UConnect, BUT I did find a 2004 Pacifica owners manual in the junk yard and pages 73-84 cover UConnect operation, exactly what I needed. I am certain other models that had the option of UConnect also have this covered in their owners manuals so that is what I would suggest for others. I just removed the pages and added them to the back of my own owners manual. FINALLY have the whole thing!!!
