I got the driver side for 100 bucks and the passenger door 175. I'm still waiting on the passenger to get her. Yes I will have to program the bcm using alfaodb.
I bought the sgw bypass from amazon I have thatWow, you're doing a lot of mods that I don't foresee doing. I hope to use AlfaOBD pretty-much for diagnostics; but it's nice to know all the other capabilites too..
Is that the cable connecting AlfaOBD on your laptop, to the OBD2 port on the Renegade?
Or the security module bypass? Because the bypass I got was directly from China via AliExpress. Only place I could find it.
Ya I had it bypassed at all times and had a odb mx+ plugged in at all times.You mean on your Ram you left the 12+6 cable plugged in to the SGW, bypassing it all the time?
Where's the SGW on the Ram? Were you able to leave the 12+6 cable just dangling, and plug the OBD2 cable into it under the dashboard? Or how did that work?
Ever take it to a dealer with that 12+6 cable in place?
No the security gateway is up behind the instrument cluster. You unplug the 12 and 6 wire connector from it and plug into the cable. The odb reader plugs in the cable and not in the factory spot. I think the one you have you plug in the adapter into the 12 and 6 pin connectors. Then you use the factory odb. The Greg cable I believe plugs into the odb port. I will know more once I have all the parts and talk to the guy who helped me on the ram.Just to make I understand what you had going on...
You had the 12+6 cable plugged into your SGW, which bypassed the SGW; and you had an OBDLink MX+ BlueTooth module connected to it, because you were using the smartphone version of AlfaOBD...?
That means on your Renegade you're not using the OBD2 port under the driver's side dashboard at all...?

So the 12+6 cable taps into the OBD system at the SGW...?
The sgw is behind the cluster. If you look up from laying on the floorboard it is there. I've plugged in the harness and read the bcm.On your Ram, or on your Renegade?
Because on the Renegade, the SGW apparently used to be under the driver's-side instrument panel. But starting in 2019, Jeep apparently moved it to behind the radio -- I assume so that it would be harder to access by DIYers.
See particularly Post #21 in this thread:

I looked under the driver's side instrument panel of my 2021 Trailhawk, and didn't see anything vaguely resembling the SGW there. Haven't actually checked behind the radio yet...
