I am not so sure that replacing just that wire will rectify the situation of the RB1 not displaying song titles, station names, artist names, etc. Using this site as a reference it appears more is necessary.

From that it looks to me essentially like Installation Kit I, AND the optional artist/song title cable are required. It seems to be about another $200 to make the RB1 work correctly with Sirius, which is a major downer...

Rb1

Well after installing my RB1 Saturday, and the iPod connector, which is a great add on. I'm not that impressed with the RB1 as a navigation tool, it's rather difficult and time consuming to enter routes and hard to see because of the small screen, the only positive thing about the unit is that it is built into the dash and makes it hard to steal , I will keep it in the jeep for now but sure glad I didn't sell my Garmin 7200 which is great nav. system. just my 2 cents.

My experience with the RB1, iPod, and Sirius has been successful, but I think there are two solutions, one easier than the other. Based on the information I found on wjjeeps.com, I connected the Sirius to the Multiplexer (PN 5066202AC) and then used the Artist cable (PN 82208322) from the Multiplexer to the RB1. This made the Song and Title show up on the RB1.

I then disconnected the Artist cable 10 pin connector from the RB1 and connected it to the iPod adapter 10 pin input. I also connected the iPod to the RB1 with the cable provided with the iPod kit. This is per the iPod adapter instructions.

After doing this, the RB1 still showed the Artist and Song information for the Sirius. Now it also shows the Artist and Title for the iPod.

To switch, the pattern is to keep toggling the CD/AUX button on the RB1. The behavior I am seeing is that the Source switches from CD -> Sirius -> CD -> iPod and then repeats the cycle. I would have liked not going back to CD in between the Sirius and the iPod, but it is a minor annoyance.

What I found out recently was that the Artist cable actually has one more pin than the car's standard wiring harness. That was pin 8 of the 10 pin connector. My car harness is empty in pin 8, and the Artist cable did have pin 8. That is the only difference.

So I think the whole Mux & Artist Cable was just one way to get pin 8 populated.

My question then is:

Does the Sirius to RB1 (long 12 pin to 10 pin) connector PN 5066203AA have pin 8 populated? (This is the cable included with the standard Sirius installation kit II (No CD Changer) PN 82206489)

If the 12 to 10 pin cable does have pin 8 populated, then this is a simpler solution (no Multiplexer and Artist cable), and I think this is what GeoBigJon discovered.

Does anybody have one of these long 12 to 10 pin cables that can see if pin 8 of the 10 pin connector side is populated?

I ordered the long 12 pin to 10 pin cable (PN 5066203AA) and pin 8 IS populated. So I removed the Mux, removed the artist cable going from the Mux to the RB1 Head unit, and removed the 12 pin to 16 pin cable going from the Sirius to the Mux.

Then I installed PN 5066203AA 12 pin to 10 pin cable directly from the Sirius to the RB1 head unit and it works completely, including getting that artist and song title.

Next I unplugged the 10 pin connector from the RB1 and plugged it into the iPod adapter instead, followed by plugging the iPod adapter's cable into the RB1, and it works too.

So now I have an RB1 with iPod and Sirius, all working! I get the artist and song title for iPod and for Sirius. The RB1 switches between the sources everytime I press the CD/AUX button using the pattern CD->iPod->CD->Sirius.

The Artist Cable and external Mux worked also, but it was just the missing pin 8 that was causing the problem.

So if I have the RB1, Sirrius, and Ipod kits from Mopar then I will need the cable, pn 5066203AA, for all to work seamlessly?? Anyone else verify this?

What/where does this wire come from? Meaning does that wire come with any kit at all?

I'm looking to add the Sirius to my RB1 with iPod. I'm I correct to say I would need the following:

Vehicle Audio, Sirius Satellite Radio System P/N 82208908AA (from the 2005 Jeep Wrangler Accessory catalog)
Sirius Satellite Radio System Installation Kit P/N 82208586 (from the 2005 Jeep Wrangler Accessory catalog)
and Wiring, receiver to radio P/N 5066203AA

Also, does anyone still have the instructions from the Sirius kit? I want to read them first to see what I have to do.

Thanks,
Bob

Hi

I've just ordered the RB1 with Mopars Ipod adapter, because I have a -00 WJ I will need a new cable (P/N 05080971AA) to get the CD changer to work.
Reading the Sirius wiring diagram it looks like the Artist/Song cable could be used between the CD changer and Ipod adapter instead? Anyone tried this or know if it works?
That would make it more upgrade friendly for if/when I want to get a Sirius radio, then I could just get the Sirius receiver and multiplexer later and not have to run another cable again.

Thanks

Henrik

RB1 & Sirius Tuner location

I'm about to purchase the parts I mentioned in an above response to this thread. Does anyone still have their instructions for a TJ? I'm curious as to where the tuner goes along with the multiplexer. I also have the iPod adapter installed.

thanks,
Bob
