I am using my old seat belt and buckle, but the 04 seats i put in, the wire that runs to the belt buckle has a female end, and my 06 trucks belt buckle has a female end... it changed. it looks like this:
04 - Buckle Plug Male - Seat Wiring Plug Female
06 - Buckle Plug Female - Seat Wiring Plug Male
So my 06 buckle is female and the 04 wire running to the buckle is female lol... they switched the plug sides between 04 and 06 so now both ends are female.
Its cool, i actually bought my cloth seats back from the guy i sold them too and im putting my cloth seats back in. I have the leather seats i bought for sale on craigslist and ebay. With the money i get back from selling them, im buying a set of Mopar Heated Seat Kit and some Clazzio Leather Seat Covers so in the end, i have leather heated seats and i dont have this wiring nightmare and a airbag light off..... if i knew about all this hassle from the get go, i would have just ordered the heated seat kit and the clazzio covers lol.
oh well, you live and you learn... lesson learned. Always, fully investigate/look into any parts you buy that require plugs and come from a different year Ram. I knew they would bolt right in, but never knew or was told the wiring was different and would be a damn nightmare!!!!
