    Thank you for the quick response. So to make sure I understand the whole process, I still need to disconnect the security device from behind the radio, right? And nothing connects to the wires?

    2) the harness i have is just to so Tazer can be plugged in all the time and won't use the current OBD port, right?

    I am a little confused, the instructions says to plug into the connectors of the security device behind the radio:

    But I received the harness and Tazer Ram OBD, am I missing something?

    Thank you,
    Yazen

    No, do not unplug the security gateway from behind the radio. For whatever reason, they did not send you the type of bypass that those instructions are for, but what they sent you will work just the same. It is designed so you can leave the tazer plugged in out of sight, and still have an open, unbypassed OBD port in the factory location.

    But I thought 2018 ram has a security feature that does not let users make changes in the settings without a security bypass.. Are you saying I can still make changes without the bypass?

    Also, how to set mirror folding with tazer? i dont see such option in the software?

    Thank you once again,
    Yazen

    That contraption they sent you IS a security gateway bypass. It just does it in a different method than the one that replaces the actual security module.
    I’ve never used a tazer before, so I wouldn’t know about the settings.

    My truck doesn't have any white junction block! Is that even possible? I really looked but couldn't find one. Am I missing something? I will look again tomorrow morning but thought I'd ask here for guidance.

    Thank you
