Wiring for Ram 56049706AF overhead console.

I have a 05 Ram. I'm putting in a used 56049706AF overhead console. I have the pigtails only. I need the wiring diagram to show connections of the 4 wires to the display. They are:red, pink/blue, white/purple, black/2 white. there is a connector with extra circuits halfway down the driver's pillar. Thanks.

    Please reread my original post. There are 4 wires that I need to connect on the display. It is a 56049706AF; OTIS, without Homelink.

    They are:red, pink/blue, white/purple, black/white.

    I only assume the 4 connections are battery, ground, temp sensor, and BCM/ECM signal. I need to know which is which, or what.

    The drawings you sent do not identify these leads into the 56049706AF.

    Thank you very much.

Here some wiring diagram...

And, here's some basic info. If you have either: keyless entry, premium infinity stereo, or fog lights, then you have the basic BCM for the overhead console.

There's 2 types of overheads:
OTIS (Overhead Traveling Information System)
EVIC (Electronic Vehicle Information Center)

OTIS has two versions: 1 with Homelink and 1 without Homelink
OTIS modules have the name of the buttons written on the console underneath the actual button.

EVIC modules ALWAYS have Homelink buttons, but they are also capable to telling you other stuff like low washer fluid, they can allow you to program your horn, lights, etc. It's a really nice module - BUT here's where th BCM comes in (and I don't have enough info about the BCM and the EVICs to know for sure): I have read on the internet that you might have a BCM that cannot talk to an EVIC. If that's the case, you might get some funny actions coming from the module readout.

Here's some part numbers for you:
If you just want to add the Homelink (garage door openers),
then you can use the following for 03+ --> 56049707AF
If you really want an EVIC, this part number was used by gc714 and everything works except for the tire pressure monitors (but that is because he doesn't have the tire pressure sensors on his wheels) --> 56045574AE

I know this is a little long, but I thought you might want some information so you know what you're dealing with and maybe know what the dealer guys are talking about.
Other than suggesting you view this

Hope help with this.

Have a 05 dodge 1500 the 4x4 switch an overhead console leds quit working an keeps blowing the fuse as soon as i put it in

Odd that your vehicle runs both systems on the same circuit and with only a 10 amp fuse. I'd try a 20 amp fuse to see if that works. Worth a shot, it shouldn't harm anything.

Right side headlamp and turn signal not working. Both plugs have approx 13v at the pigtails bulbs are new. not sure why they wont work when i have voltage to them anybody have a solution?

Probably the ground for that side. It should be close around the lights and wiring there. When you checked with voltmeter, your ground lead was the negative battery or a convenient ground close by? Check again using the ground wire terminal in the pigtail as the ground for meter. If ground is bad for that, the meter won't register.
