My Jeep thinks its German !!

Have just finished installing a new Pioneer head unit and PAC RadioPro4 RP4-CH11

All working great except the PAC is forcing the EVIC to be displayed in German....

Anyone seen anything like this before ? I've mailed PAC asking for advice but dont imagine they'll be overly interested.

Any thoughts or suggestions greatly appreciated



Thanks



Dean.

Have you tried scrolling through the language menu to select English?

Yes - unfortunately you change it and then it jumps straight back to German...

I've now done a bit more searching and found other WK owners with same problem - seems to be a PAC issue with Euro spec cars.

Solution is to swap the PAC and Harness for a Scosche item - guess thats another £150.00 spend then - not sure i can live with "door is open and mpg" etc. in German

Try to disconnect your batterie, and than turn the key in the engine start position to run down the energie in the ecu s of your car to reset them. If it does not work - go to your dealer - he can set the country code of your car to GB - so it should speek englisch to you

I know this thread is really old but do someone know if resetting the ECU solves the problem? I don't like the germans invading my dashboard.

There's a few UK guys that have fitted alternative Interfaces that work fine - have a look at our UK owners group here https://m.facebook.com/groups/1453851894943021

Thanks. I already have the Pac Audio device installed so I was hoping for a solution Unfortunately I missed the part about german language before I installed it.

Was with a Car Audio guy this week who told me there is a UK branded version of the PAC that works correctly - cant remember the name, but can find for you if you're going to change it.

AD Motorsportz 75mm Turbo setup. SHR War Viking II, 3600 Torque Convertor, BWoody Stryker CF hood, Cam, Wavetrac, Stage 6 Two Step, BC Coilovers, DC Customs Headlights, Staggered Black wheels on Vredesteins, Tail light solutions side mouldings, Hydrodipped interior, Mangaflow Cat back, electric cutouts, Slotted and Drilled rotors, Welds and Drag Radials. Still to come Forged Pistons, Katzkin interior....
