    Thanks for the info. For the most part I will be running additional lighting. I look forward to seeing your post and pictures.

    I'll PM you since I'm not the greatest at posting pictures. We have 4 RAM 2500's where I work, all are 2016's, 3 are Crew Cab 4x4 with service boxes and one(mine) is a Power Wagon. All have to run auxiliary lighting plus radios and PA systems and external speakers/sirens. The Power Wagon is the only one that didn't come with the switches which is how I know what happens when you pull power from an existing circuit and the load increases to much. I do have a few other tricks I've learned on these trucks for finding power though and I'll elaborate when I PM you the photos. I'll also send you the part number for Aux wiring harness from under the hood a small well as show you how we routed it thru the firewall.

    Cheers

    By the way, how to know certain parts, knowing only the VIN number of the car. Some advise such service. What can you say? Will it work?

    I wanted to follow-up on this post to say thank you to Yoda and Magician for thier assistance. I was finally able to complete my auxiliary switch install and everything work perfectly. The part number provid ed d by Yoda was the correct switch and the pictures provided by Magician were a big help. I am still waiting on a relay block to arrive to make the install look like it is completely Oem. But the functionality is already in place.

    I found the following wiring diagram on Ram Builder. That helped with building my harness.

    Aux1 - pin 3 br/or
    Aux2 - pin 2 br/vt
    Aux3 - pin 11 br/wt
    Aux4 - pin 10 br/gy
    Aux5 - pin 12 tn/br

    I did not have to add the sales code for the switch since my harness goes directly to each of the pins. Each button applies a ground to the coil side of the relay when applied. Below is how I wired each switch

    Aux 1&2 will function with the key off, 3-5 require the key to be on

    Here is a couple pictures of how I ran the harness through the firewall by going through the clutch delete plate. It is plastic and easy to drill.
