    M2grimm. I bought the camera reroute harness from infotainment.com. I have a 2014 R2 radio (1C6RR7KTXES343642). It’s in a 2013 ram1500. Anyway Everything works great. New auto dim mirror bezel and factory harness to passenger firewall. Awesome. Then I install the reroute kit infotainment sent me. Correctly install pass through with rca video cable splice at firewall. I then install harness they gave me to factory radio plug. Plug rca cable in and start truck. Put truck in reverse, and no change on video screen. Still has radio displayed. Nothing. So I call the tech and now they think it’s something with my firmware? I don’t think they sent me right harness. I have extra four pin connector just hanging and has red, green, black and orange wire. Looks like a power plug to me. But it is not supposed to get plugged in so they say. I just need a 3 pin jumper from the fire wall block to the back of the original radio multipin connector. I am so confused and frustrated and confused. This should not be this difficult. Any suggestions?

    Having problems with infotainment harness
    to reroute camera to RA2
    1C6RR7KTXES343642
    radio.
    Installed harness as directed, ran spliced in rca video cable to their harness put truck in reverse and video screen did not change. Called tech at infotainment.com and they said something about firmware and said they would call me back tomorrow. As I already had truck apart. They insist they sent me correct harness but I have extra four pin plug hanging from main harness bundle. Has red, black, green and orange wires to connector and just hangs there I guess. Anyway, I assume the camera reroute to be a simple task and I wanted to stay away from messing with pins and plugs, so I went with infotainment, but now I am not sure as this should not be that hard from everything I have read. It’s a simple 3 connector jumper from the firewall connector to the original radio harness, I thought. Anyway, so now I am stuck. Any suggestions ? I checked my vin and the radio is up to date with uconnect updates. I am not sure what firmware they are talking about or how that interplay’s with everything. I would appreciate some advice.

    Pm sent. Not familiar with the install directions for their harness bit can give you a call Wednesday to discuss.

    I need to see about getting a harness made so I can install my overhead console with homelink. I tested everything and it works. I could just tap the wires but I prefer a factory style look.

    I’m planing on adding auto dim rear view mirror, both illuminated visors, and the overhead console with homelink, mood light (cup holder light) and of course the reading lights. I’d also like to add a rear dome light since I have a crew cab, that center light really doesn’t illuminate much. Oh and add Clearance lights. I’m not sure if I could use the 2500 harness for auto dim and hands free with clearance lights? I know I may have to change some pins around.


    Just curious how much a harness for this would be? If I could get the pins that fit the 16 way green connector I could make it myself but the place that has them is 100 each min order ugh.

    My truck is a ‘12 Ram Express crew cab 4x4. I’ve already got the EVIC and center console with floor shift. All works fine. Just want the upper stuff.

    I recieved my 8.4, 7 speed conversion harness today. The quality was awesome and the install was painless. Everything works as it should. I couldn't be happier.

    Alright!! All finished! I am going to sleep now, not used to all this work. Here are some pics for you all.

    Leather steering wheel, steering wheel audio controls, premium gauge cluster, RA4 radio with navigation, premium ac heat controls, sport center dash bezel. All installed this week.

    I could not have done any of this with out the help from Mike G. "M2 MODS" with all the questions and emails we exchanged. Even at 2am when this guy is exhausted driving home from work he still found the time to answer my calls and questions. And of course his custom 7 speed fan harness and cell bypass plug worked perfectly! Also to Don got getting me the Premium Cluster and RA4 Radio for a great price and both arriving in like new condition. Thank you both for all the help.

    Of course all the unnamed people on the forum that took the time to answer my questions and concerns I also want to say thank you.

    Looks like the Carpet and Console are next, will post more soon!
