Installed aftermarket radio, weird EVIC issue

I installed an aftermarket double-din radio this past weekend. I pretty much did what JGC11 did in his thread (http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f309/...dunit-1320196/) using the same wiring harnesses/interfaces.

The installation went well and the radio is working beautifully. The only issue I am having is that the EVIC is switching to Spanish when I unlock the doors in the morning/after work. I have to switch the EVIC back to English each time.

I was wondering if JGC11 had the same issue (I tried to PM you but your mailbox is full). I am thinking that I perhaps have a faulty PAC-Audio C2R-CHY4 Jeep replacement interface. Though everything else is working perfectly.

Did you check if you got the latest version of the PAC adapter because those adapters got a couple times updated to eliminate errors like yours. You may check with their costumer service.

I did indeed check that. I have version 1.1.4a. The newest version (1.1.6) corrects only 1 (published) issue which is Fixes "No Signal" text on instrument cluster seen in 2012 vehicles. There is no version 1.1.5
Perhaps 1.1.6 also fixes the EVIC spanish issue I'm having. I'm hoping JGC11 will chime in.

Hmmm I haven't had any issue with this whatsoever... and sorry about the PM's I will clear the inbox asap.

Maybe if you reset the PAC adapter/re program it? This is really all I can think about trying to fix this... Maybe give PAC a call or crutchfield.

Did you disconnect the battery when you swapped out the radio? I totally forgot to do that and only realized this once I had the new unit installed. I'm going to disconnect the battery, thus "resetting" the Jeep to see if that fixes it. If not, then I will double check the wiring and I may give PAC or Crutchfield a call.

Another question for ya. The stock radio had 2 wiring harnesses plugged into it. One harness with a lot of wires, the other had only 3. I hooked up the PAC interface to the first harness, leaving the harness with 3 wires disconnected. Is that what you did?

I did dis connect the battery...

Yes I left the 2nd one unplugged like you did. I think that that one is for factory NAV and because they mass produce these things its there on all models

Right on. Well I'll disconnect the battery this weekend to "reset" the Jeep to see if that will fix things. I'll also double check the wiring.

Cheers
