Also something about the amplifier preventing the use of the radio wiring harness? He suggested i would need to fit a kit with it's own speaker, finding the power from alternative wires under the dash?
I'm now unsure whether to proceed at all??
Can anyone clear up the confusion, or recommend a better phone kit for the Patriot? I have a standard single CD, 4 speaker stereo fitted, and would rather have the hands free kit hard wired to use the stereo.
Can't really recommend a kit, but I am going to put the factory kit in my Caliber once I get off my lazy butt. The factory one MIGHT require a different wire harness, but all you have to do is change the mirror out and it does the rest once that is taken care of. The factory one being the factory uconnect kit.
