I did a complete electronics swap from an 08 to 09 & now my Radio is not turning on. I didn't swap the antennas. My Tech2 is showing my antenna module as being "Disabled". Would that stop the radio from turning on?

Also, would that be the RKE antenna? The other AM/FM one wouldn't have any active electronics I would think.

Did you also change the radio? They may be different. Check number of pins in the connectors.

Looks like it was just a defective radio. I plugged in another one I had, unlocked it & it's working fine.

There are 2 types of radio that from the front and back look exactly alike but are not compatible. The radio that pushes the Bose and sub is different than the one that is a regular radio but they look exactly alike.

Yeah I knew that. I was playing around with 4 radios, 07 non-amplified, 07 amplified, 08 amplified & 09 amplified. I ended up using the 08 amplified with the screen from the 07 non-amplified & it works good.
