It won't connect to my 98 dodge ram. I order a wiring harness for my dodge but what i got is already in my truck
There are scosche, aftermarket to factory wiring harness at Wal-marts for about $10-15.
Or you could hard wire, the stereo harness into the factory directly. It is not very hard to do. If remember right, there was no good factory ground, so you would have to run one yourself. As with any electronics installation a multimeter or test light can be useful, but a good wire striping tool and electrical tape will be needed.
I would start by checking my factory harness with the multi-meter, and finding (or rechecking for) the wire with 12v that is constantly on, and for the wire with 12v only when the ignition key is turned to either "on" or "Accessory". The wire colors for your truck, should be:
Constant 12V+ Red
Switched 12V+ Red/White
Antenna Trigger Yellow
Left Front (+) Dark Green
Left Front (-) Brown/Red
Right Front (+) Purple
Right Front (-) Dark Blue/Red
Left Rear (+) Brown/Yellow
Left Rear (-) Brown/Light Blue
Right Rear (+) Dark Blue/White
Right Rear (-) Dark Blue/Orange
Now that is the basic factory package, if you have an upgraded model with a factory amp (not very common) it will be different, but same concept applies.
