Customer Question

I have a 07 Dodge Ram 3500 with the C1 and C2. I'm installing an after market stereo that has basic colors on the harness and the C1and C2 has more wires. The C1 only has 4 wires for sound and the rest are for power. The C2 has 9 wires. Your diagrams for the C2 match with what I have and the same for the premium C1 minus front speakers. I have power but no sound. I need help bad! Which wires to connect to the speaker wires on the new harness and where do I hook up the dark Green wire?

Good afternoon and welcome to JustAnswer!!

My name is ***** ***** I have worked for a Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep dealership for 18 years and I will do my best to help.

Can I get your VIN to get you the wiring diagram?

That VIN comes back that you had a RAQ factory radio that has an amplifier. If your trying to install a aftermarket radio you will need to get the adaptor since you have a factory amp. Did you get the adaptor?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
No I didn't. I cut all the wires and I'm trying to solder them. Trying to cut down on cost.

I know you can bye pass buying an expensive harness an wire it. I just need to know which wires go where and is there a special wire to connect to the radio harness to power the amp
Expert:  -Brad- replied 9 months ago.

Did you cut the factory connectors? That is not a good idea and it would be a good idea to install the factory connectors back and get >>THIS<<

If you want to try bypassing it I can give you the wiring diagram if you like..

I cut the factory connector and it's too short to reconnect
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
I guess send me the wiring diagram and I'll see if that helps

Ok give me just a minute to convert the SVG files to PDF so you can read them, also I will give you the amplifier wiring...

What is the dark green audio common wire for? What would I connect that to? Which wires should I connect to the + and - on my harness ? Not sure what audio return/ aux is
Expert:  -Brad- replied 9 months ago.

I think your referring to C2 Pin 2.. It goes to the satellite reciever, I attached the picture.
