Help with mygig ren radio please

Ok, im pulling my hair out! I purchased a mygig ren touch screen unit out of a 2009 Chrysler 300, it is a low bus unit. I installed it in my 2012 R/T challenger, which is also a low bus system, after i plugged it up the green light around the know started to flash, and nothing turned on, also my car would not start. I unpluged it and put my factory unit back in and all is well. Really would like the mygig to work, any suggestions? Just some info, my car has uconnect with voice activation. Please help, and tell me i didnt waste my money on this unit.

Thanks

Did you double check your connections and try it again? The Low Speed should work unless there is something wrong with the unit you bought. I hope it came with a warranty or money back for DOA.

Good luck.

Make sure the wiring harness is fully plugged in (it may seem plugged in but you really have to push on the connector)

Also make sure the ant. is plugged in (major ground for head unit)

Just thinking out loud here so take it with a grain of salt. Are the Mopar radio units VIN locked like those from GM? It may be necessary to take it to the dealer for a program.

No they aren't locked. I have swapped out several and never had an issue. Hopefully it is just a connection issue.

Any update OP?

I was told locked units start in 2012....the radio holds the key code..not PCM...if you have key code...it can go into any car...any older unit will work no matter.. if and only if its a LOW speed....are you sure its a low speed...post the part number and I can tell you..putting in a High speed radio will render the car useless...nothing will work..I know this because I went to purchase a used mygig from someone who said it was low speed..before purchase...I place radio in car and same exact thing happen to me as original poster....I asked an engineer and he told me the same thing....car wont work with High speed

different bus speed, nearly all 2010 and prior year electronics will not work on 2011 and newer vehicles, in some instance it may function, but the chance of having major glicthes is very high if not almost certain...
