Uconnect 4 in 2017 Renegade It works!

On a whim I purchased a salvage Uconnect 4 radio with 7 inch screen along with the appropriate bezel. It powers on in my 2017 and alfaobd recognizes it and was able to proxy it. Of note is that you won't have a power button or volume knob... All would be controlled by steering wheel buttons. I am unable to write the vin to the radio using alfaobd due to an error message on alfaobd after starting write. The anti-theft code however comes up as incorrect and I'm wondering if maybe I need to give the dealer my vin and not the donor vehicle vin? Unfortunately, as the '17 and older use a different hvac I'm unable to perform a hard reset using the ac buttons and menu... Dealership claims unable to assist and hoping to not have to enter 1300+ potential combinations so if anyone has any ideas I'm open to trying them.

Went to the dealer and gave them my vin instead which still gave same code. Appointment set for Tuesday to attempt hard reset which should pair it with the Renegade

Thanks, should mention that the dealer in post 2 is a different one and seemed very willing to help.

There is a website where you pay $10.00 for the code. You give them the donor vin. Worked for me.

It works perfectly, however, you will lose the knob for volume control so steering wheel controls are a must. You will also need alfaobd and the obdlink mx.
