Switch GDU to VIC?
I have a 98 ZJ I6 Selec-trac laredo, with the basic graphic screen that just says what 4wd mode your in by highlighting the wheels. I got a VIC to swap them out, figuring they are practically universal? When installing, it fit the opening and the screws were in the same place, and the wire went in too. But it won't light up or anything? Any suggestions?
The VIC was paired up with a variety of modules throughout the vehicle. As an example, the lamp outage module found in VIC-equipped ZJs (rear left quarter panel) is not present on other ZJs. You also only have one door jamb switch per door, rather than the two-per-door required to show "door ajar" alerts on the VIC. Same goes for the coolant LEVEL and washer fluid level sensors. Unfortunately, based on the wiring diagrams, I would bet a few bucks on saying that you can't swap a VIC in to a vehicle that wasn't originally equipped with it.

I don't have one in my laredo either, but a family member has a limited, and he says the VIC is the biggest PITA ever. Why would you want it to begin with, the only reason I could see is to have a clock lol. Other than that I don't find them entirely useful. Hope you can find something to make it work though if it matters that much to you.
