Some 2013-2017 vehicles had their CUE system replaced by the dealer after approximately Aug ’17. The factory that makes the CUE units made a design change and requires a special version replacement screen.

If your CUE unit part number starts with the number “8,” as shown in the photos to the right, it is not original and V2018 is the only compatible screen on the market.


The crosshatch/plaid factory screen ribbon cable also indicates the CUE unit is not original.

If you are unsure if your CUE unit is original- you can order both versions and return the version that you don't need. This saves down time during the installation.

Otherwise- sometimes the service history will show "radio replaced" and that can help you identify if it is a replacement unit. From the outside, they look the exact same so without the service records, the only way to know for sure is to check the part number of the CUE unit.
