The vic may be dead, they do that. The new radio may also have confused it, the factory radio can set the time on the vic so they do communicate.

They're cheap, not a lot of people like them. You can try swapping a new one in (I think any year, but do a post 96 to be safe) or replace it with the cubby from a 2wd ZJ.

They are more or less independent of the rest of the vehicle, they do show what t case mode you are in, helpful if the case doesn't want to engage. Other things like coolant/washer fluid low and if you left the turn signal on are mostly superfluous.

The CCD bus communication between the factory radio and the VIC is completely non-essential. If you fit a non-factory radio it doesn't affect the VIC's operation at all, you just have to set the time manually.

Has to be post-96. The 93-95 VIC uses a 2-plug connector configuration, 96-98 uses one plug.
