Two questions:
Anyone know what these are for/go to?
When did the rams first have floor lighting?

This one is mounted downward between the hood release and the center dash (hvac/radio) area. If I pull teh cap off it reveals a plug with roughly 20 pins.. but it's covered with a cap, nothing plugged into it.


This one is mounted above teh parking brake pedal assembly.

Without a picture, I'm guessing the OBD II port. Look up a picture of one and see if that's it.

Very often, the airbag light issue is a plug up under your seat. If something was stuffed under there, it could have dislodged it. It doesn't take much. Try reseating all of the plugs under there.

I have two plugs under the driver's seat. One that's just a coupler and the second connected to a Y. First end runs to the driver seatbelt latch, second to a this length of loom under teh center 'seat'. Then another Y... one to teh center seat belt latch then the last one to the passenger seat belt latch.
Bad thing is, it's so intermittent and inconsistent. Rough roads like washboard gravel sometimes make it go off. Other times, like a few minutes ago raising the steering wheel made it go off. Sometimes it's putting the truck into drive/reverse. A few times it goes off while cruising down the interstate in a straight line. Just weird.

The plug for a brake controller is usually located over there by the emergency brake pedal. Without pictures, it's hard to tell.

you pasted a link to the page where the pictures are instead of links to the actual pictures. i went to the page they were on and right clicked on the pictures and copied image address and then pasted it in the box like you did.
