where did you purchase the cable and OBD dongle?
Amazon. Be sure the cable and OBD dongle are “fulfilled by Amazon”. I ordered a cable shipped from China and a month later I still don’t have it. I ordered a second one from Amazon and got it in a few days.

Can you share what you ordered? I searched obd dongle and it all looks Bluetooth. And I’m not sure which cable to get.
Thanks

For the front end everything is pretty straight forward. For the rear lights it can be a little confusing as the app is European (maybe South African, the YouTube video has a guy with an accent i cant figure out) and the taillights are configured a little different over there (stop/turn are separate).

It would be advisable to get screen shots of each setting before changing so you have a reference to revert to stock.

I've been digging around the JSCAN menus and I feel the most obscure setting might be trying to find the one that enables the LED headlight DRL Halo. The fogs, fenders, and turns seem pretty straight forward like you said. Do you have any experience with the headlight halo you could share?

I do not have Halo’s on my Jeep. I did install the Kiwi Master headlights on my wife’s Jeep and connected the Halo to the Aux 4 switch.

@Jcarrig3
What gauge wires did you use to make your harness?
The connectors for the molex connector at the light appear to be 22-28 gauge. the OEM wire looks like 16 gauge at the most, they are led's and don't draw a lot of current.

Gregj
edit to add the cavity seals for the other end are 18-24 gauge.

Thanks! I have some 22 gauge wire so I'm going to use that along with the connectors from Mouser.

Shout out to @Jcarrig3 and @Gregj
I purchased a set of painted LED fender flares to put on my Sport S and got them for a great price since the plug for the wiring harness been cut off. Thanks to this thread I was able to make new plug ends for only $13 in parts! A few taps with JScan and the LEDs and DRL are working normally.

Does anyone know the part number or have a link to the plastic rivets for the wheel liner. I had it and lost it.

I think the part number for those plastic rivets is 6506007AA but they are insanely expensive everywhere I looked. You can pick up a kit with the tool and an assortment of rivets at Harbor Freight for <$20.

Hi I am facing the same problem.
The connector end is cut off.
I managed to find the molex connector but hard time to find the terminal inside the connector.
I tried to find them from a previous thread but no luck.
If you remember the part number and where to buy that would be great
Thanks
