If your truck is like mine, you are hunting to find cup holder at night, this may be the way to go. My truck, by check at dealer by last 9 digits of VIN was NOT wired to accept a cup holder, therefore my truck was without. Some trucks are wired for it, but it is just simply not there. YOU MAY SEE SOME ADDITIONAL COMPONENTS REMOVED FROM MY DASH. IGNORE AND ONLY REMOVE WHAT IS SUGGESTED. I HAVE OTHER PROJECTS I AM DOING AS WELL.
get you light Assy DODGE PART # 55361226AA $23.16 + Tax PLUS 2 scotch
Step 2 Remove trim piece by removing one screw locate above trash bag hook, pull on hook and work your way around the trim piece.
It should nw look like this
Disconnect all electrical connections from the heater controls, cig outlet, any other remaining and totally get this trim piece out of your way. With this out of the way you MAY find the connector to hook light up to in the location I am pointing to.
If not then your truck is like mine and you need to tag into some wires.
Here is the location of where your new light will live, you will want to remove some of the screws on the bottom trim piece to pull it rearward enough to slide it into its location.
Now its in place. If you were lucky enough to have the plug, plug it in and your done. If your truck was like mine follow below. The smaller of the two plugs you removed from manual heater control (see pic) Locate orange wire with yellow tracer. This goes to the orange wire with grey tracer coming from light assy.
Next locate white wire with black tracer. This goes to the Violet wire with black tracer from light assy. BOTH THESE WIRES ARE IN SMALL CONNECTOR GOING TO HEATER CONTROL.
You should have your scotch locks and wind up with something like this. I simply took side cuts and cut the plug from the light assy.
At this point you are finished with the install. Turn your park lights on. Verify your scotch locks have made the proper connection. Run dimmer wheel up and down on headlight switch to verify proper working order. You can visibly see the bulb to verify this from looking up.
Enjoy not having to fumble and spill your drink.
