Hello JL Wrangler Forms....

@ 50, my life long desire for a Jeep has been realized. 2021 Willy Unlimited. Not my first choice of color,, but its growing on me.

what an amazing site.. this is my 1st post.. I leased my jeep.. so i am taking any modifications slow and with deep consideration. I did not realize i was missing this feature, my last car had it.. just assumed it was Keyless entry... My bad..


anyway.. My willy, although my willy has Keyless, Push button start, remote start. etc.. it does not have the 15 & 16 Pins.. sadly..

but won't let that stop me.. now that it seems the enabling of Proximity with Jscan seems to be resolved. Time to get started..

I ordered my front Door kit, yeah i am sure ill get the tailgate later.. Happy to report that even though mopar Online performance, site said 45 days, my harness is arriving Wednesday, after only ordering it on Friday.

Since I am new to all of this, i opt'd to go with the Jscan vs. the Tazer. mainly because of cost.. and it being a lease.. I am not sure how far ill get to go with Mod's


I tried to order the Nismopar pre-made cables, but they are back ordered. .. so going with the old fashion cable making.



My Big install day is Thursday.. will see what happens.... I am sure I will hit some stumbles and have to hit the AutoParts store..


Parts for reference..

door handle and harness it.

Sadly, i could not find the Green|yellow Green|white but going with Red|black. I don't plan on doing the Passenger door, but will most likely do the prep work now, you know just incase... I will at least label the cables, for future reminder..

I am happy to post a follow up after wards., my real reason was to thank all the contributors out there before me, that got me to this point..

Put me in the success column



2021 Jeep Willy Unlimited..



The Process is pretty well documented. So I won’t rehash it here..



Overall, I give the Door Handle and Harness a beginner level competency and I give the wiring a Moderate, depending if you are using the factory harness, or going the bypass route. It’s a very tight space, I think next time I would take the seat out. Its only 4 bolts.. (granted I don’t have electric seats or anything)



My Experience. out side of a few Nick and cuts on my hands. Went pretty straight forward.

Time Frame:

Door Handle: 10 Min..

Wiring Harness: 15 -35 min ( second door would be 15 min, was a little more careful on the 1st one)


Jumper Wiring: ??? Although I spent about 2 hours on this.. only to realize I was holding the connector upside down and my 2021 Jeep Will did not need any jumper wires.. Costly mistake of 68.00 for terminals.. oh well net time , Ill pay a little more attention.

P.S I have Terminal 114 and 42c for sale.. PM me if interested. Still have 7 sets.. ( 7.00 ea pair)

Useful video for taking off the kick plate..


Jscan, programing.. could not find any really videos out there. But go from your break peddle up. They are right there. https://www.jlwranglerforums.com/fo...ions-parts-links-on-jl-wrangler.49241/page-31


Could not have accomplish this with out this site. And all the contributors. Thank you all...


Looking forward to the next MOD, once I figure out what to do.. lol

But end result is I now have driver’s Door Proximity Access
  • Push button to lock
  • Grab handle no button to open..

I ordered and received the parts for my 2018 JLU Sport S. Installed tailgate harness and activated proximity door locks with my Tazer. Works perfectly.

Being a Sport S, and not having pins 15 & 16, I ordered the jumpers through Nismopar. My issue is pins 20, 21, 25 & 26 already have wires at the IP connector to the body (XY315A).

Not sure if I should just splice into the wires as I am not sure where they go from there. Has anyone else had this issue?

Still looking to see if anyone has any suggestions as I am still unable to get the tailgate to work. It seems in most cases this is as simple as installing the parts and doing the programming. I have checked re-checked and triple-checked all the connections and pins, everything looks good. I have used both the Tazer and Jscan to program in both cases I get the radio info and can turn proximity on and off. Still have the issue that the key fob flashes at the button push or handle trap but no lock or unlock. If I turn off proximity from the radio the key fob no longer flashes. I have tried disconnecting the battery for 30 min and am open to ANY suggestions.
