Wow. OBDgenie indeed says that the SGW for the 2019-2021 Renegade is behind the radio.According to OBDgenie, the SGW was behind the OBD port in the 2018 Renegade and is behind the stereo starting in 2019. That doesn’t mean your bypass module is useless. It just means it’s a bit more difficult to get to. They have a video for the Cherokee, which has it in the same location.

I'd take that with a grain of salt; but I just dug a bit further under my dashboard following the Service Manual directions. After removing the cover underneath the sash on the driver's side, I got to where I could (barely) see the Body Control Module way back there.
Here's the best photo I managed to take, looking forward inside the left side of the driver's side dashboard. You can see the dead pedal at the bottom, and the OBD2 port just above it. The BCM has the rows of fuses (look like mostly yellow 20A -- good luck of you have to change one of those), and the red cables are plugged into it:
But no sign of the SGW; and it doesn't look easy to remove the BCM.
So yet another case where the TechAuthority Service Manual isn't quite correct.
I do see the video for the 2019-2021 Cherokee:

Well, according to the Service manual , the radio on the Renegade -- at least with the Uconnect 4C NAV unit -- looks like it's easier to remove than the Cherokee's. You have to pry off the bezel around the screen, and the four screws holding in the radio are right there...
Still, they don't make it easy to use a scan tool like AlfaOBD, do they?
