Putting Original Radio Back in

In my 2016 JGC, I'm nearing the end of my lease. I was thinking of putting the original 8.4 back in, and taking out the CarPlay one I got from infotainment. Will the vehicle want a radio code? Do we have the code for the original radios that I'm just not finding?

Thanks,

ok, for anyone wondering, the answer is you do not need a code to put the original radio back in. I just went ahead and tried it, and it works fine.

Yeah the OEM radio itself unlocks based on VIN or other ID thats stored in the PCM (I think). So you can put any radio in thats programmed for that vehicle VIN/ID, which the original had. Dunno off hand if infotainment programs the radio with the vehicle VIN/ID when you order it.

I have reached the age where all compliments will be followed by “for your age.”

I can't recall, but the radio from infotainment gives you the code too.
