Passive Entry - Favorite Mod so far

This was by far the easiest step by step mod I've done so far. I ordered the complete kit from Allmoparparts.com and it arrived in4 days. I won't condemn you to my horrible video skills so I'll link the exact video I used and I didn't come across a single snag or complication. Total install time, both doors and programming with JSCAN (first time user also) took about 35 minutes.

Install Video I used, not me btw, and if he's on here thanks again :rock:



I would say that if you can takes your doors and tops off then you can do this, take your time and it's a cinch and GOD what a comfort mod. There's a couple of pre-existing wiring that need to check and make sure you have, luckily I did so all plug and play. I did also purchase the
OBDLink MX+ OBD2 Bluetooth Scanner AND TTXSPP Cable Adaptor for Chrysler 12+8 Programming Cable Connector, along with a $23.99 VIN purchase for JSCAN.

Did you check out the huge long thread on this that started back in about 2020?
Dozens have done it. Mine went smoothly back then, even though it was only about 30 degrees in my garage and I still had the old dark fluorescent lighting in there at the time. So it was dark and cold.

I still have a list of the parts (Benny didn't have a kit back then) and the JSCAN settings I used.

These are all you really need because there's no trunk for these, no back or hatch with passive entry.


AP1 Left front > smart switch

AP2 right front > smart switch

Passive entry present > yes/ active

Passive entry CSM > yes/ active

The last one is to add the option to the settings in the radio. You can turn it on and off from the radio once that shows up after a few hours. I believe it stands for something like customer settings menu or similar.

A couple of the videos make it appear harder than it is - and those using power tools risk breaking screws as some have also found out. A couple of steps in one of the videos isn't really necessary but it must have made it easier for them when they did it.

Good work!

I think you only need AP1 and AP2. The other antennas aren't present.

I did plenty of searches but didn't find a true complete post, several posts put together, so I decided to share my experience and consolidate all the info I came across; also with current info as some of the posts were from 1 to 2 years old. Personally, I always hand loosen bolts before hitting with power tools, learned the hard way a few times myself in the past so made that a habit. I wasn't sure which settings on JSCAN so I played with a few and went with what I posted above, which does work, although I may try and go in and adjust based on your info to see the exact settings needed. Thank you for the reply and comments, I've seen you post numerous times as I'm still a newb to the forum, nice to have a post with a reply from Papa 😁

Yeah that was the only thing I had to try and play around with (JSCAN settings), so I just wanted to post exactly what I did to make it work. Thanks for the comment/reply Cheers :like:

You're very welcome. As a prerequisite, unplug your door harness at the bottom A pillar and see if you have wires 15 & 16, picture as shown. If you do, then it should be all plug and play, just like mine.

Enable the Auto Relock feature if you want it to behave like most other passive entry vehicles.

Relock after 30sec.

Do you know what section that would fall into on JSAN?

So I did this install on mine a year ago and have never been able to get the passanger side to work. Driver's side works fine. Using a Tazer rather than Jscan to enable passive entry. Has anyone ever had this problem before and have a solution?

Such a great mod. So glad I did mine. I was lazy and only did the driver's side but it was well worth it.

There was a bad batch of door pods, the magnets were reversed according to AllMoparParts, you can pry it open and flip the magnet, if that works then that's the fix. If it's the whole electrical system of the door, I'd check your harness and make sure nothing got pinched or make sure the connector is seated correctly.

Thanks @NeatFreq !
I’ve checked the door harness as best I could a number of times in the summer when pulling the door but it’s tough with the sliding pin guard. They all seem to line up though and it inserts smoothly. I’ll try the magnet flip though, that’s the first I’ve heard of it!
