According to my parts friend (he wants to do this too) this is all that you need:
05273374AC Shifter, if wanted with Jeep logo 68021374AA - $61.64
0ZH70DX9AA Bezel superseded by 0ZH70DX9AB Bezel - $24.26
Wire, terminals, solder, misc. ???
We have run into a problem that we've been working on all night. We are trying this conversion on an FD II that has different programming for the TCM and FD II functions but never had the “standard” programming that would/should have included upshift/downshift signaling to make an actual “gear” selection. I have another very long post that includes some of the information on that. It is over here CVT Operations and Controls
How the Factory would have wired for the AutoStick
They would have used a different Instrument Panel Wiring Harness. The 8 Way Connector for the AutoStick is part of that harness with 4 connections to the instrument panel and 3 for the upshift/downshift switch signal.
If you feel like replacing this harness to get the 3 additional wires this is what you will need to do:
Take your VIN to the dealer and find the harness used on it now. This part number will have a descriptions list as part of the listing. Then have them print out your “Build Information Sheet” that lists all of the options on your MK.
The harness called for on mine is 5084180AB and shows options [CG1, GWG, DHD, AJV]
If I did not have the AutoStick the harness would have been 5084177AB with options [CG1, GWG, AJV].
Notice the lack of the DHD (AutoStick) or any other transmission code such as [CVT].
Once you have your codes just add DHD to it and get the correct harness, tear apart your dash and have at it.
In my example, my harness also includes:
AJV – Driver Convenience Group
CG1 – Next Generation Multistage Front Air Bags
DHD – AutoStick® Automatic Transmission
GWG – Power Express Open/Close Sunroof
The DYI way
to add the three wires necessary to make the AutoStick work are:
Obtain the 8 Way through the dealer when it’s available. Right now the dealers listing calls for “Wiring (repair) Kit, AutoStick, 8 Way Connector – MOPAR Package Not Available.”
Now what? Hard wire it. Disconnect the Battery.
1. The 1 & 3 pin locations from your old connector will go to locations 3, 6, & 7 on the bottom of you new shifter. Keep in mind that the image of the connector shown is a mirror image of the bottom of your new shifter. Yes, you will have to slice or jumper a 3rd wire (upshift/downshift switch signal) to make all of these ground circuits. All of these 20 ga Black/Yellow ground wires are spliced together at S217 (it doesn’t matter where that is) so it doesn’t matter which goes to where.
2. Connect the wire from your old #2 pin, 20 ga, Orange/Grey to the new #4 location.
3. Connect the old #4 pin, 20 ga, Brown/Yellow to the new #8 location.
This has now duplicated your original circuits so that it will still function as a standard CVT.
Additional wiring: How you run the wires is entirely up to you.
You already did the ground wire for the upshift/downshift circuits in step 1.
4. Connect a 20 ga wire (factory was Dark Green/Light Green) from the #1 location of the new shifter and run it up to the #10 location of the TCM C2, Light Gray, 24 Way Connector. This is your upshift signal.
5. Connect a 20 ga wire (factory was Yellow/Dark Green) from the #5 location on the shifter and run it up to the #12 location of the TCM C2, Light Gray, 24 Way Connector. This is your Downshift signal.
Reconnect the battery and the Instrument Panel will read via the TCM that you have added the new circuits and display the AutoStick functions as necessary. This indicator is controlled by the instrument cluster circuit board based upon cluster programming and electronic messages received from the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) over the Controller Area Network (CAN) data bus.
Each time the cluster is disconnected from battery current for more than about five minutes, it must configure itself for the automatic transmission type that is in the vehicle once it is reconnected to battery current. The instrument cluster circuitry operates the gear selector indicator to provide the following features: see
