You’ll need to utilize the secondary lock and unlock wires that you currently have. At the tailgate, use one for the tailgate handle switch sense, use the other for the tailgate release driver. At the BCM under the dash, locate the secondary lock and unlock driver wires in the C5 connector and remove them-Just installed 2019 Bighorn dually bed on my 2015 Tradesman 3500. As stated by others, it fits seamlessly but I'm trying to get the tailgate release to work. Does anyone know the trick?
You would need to either use something like a Curt trailer light module that separates the combined rear lighting, or add the rear turn signal circuits from the BCM, and use AlfaOBD to enable those circuits and turn off the combined rear lighting feature.Ok, I'll do all that tomorrow. Right now I have it where it will open/release with keyless entry 2x.
I had to get creative when retrofitting my existing backup camera into the 5th gen handle but I managed. Now I just need to figure out how to get the turn signals to work on the amber bulbs on 5th gen lights. Right now I have all operations going to 2 bulbs since the 4th gen in only wired for 2 bulbs.
The swap itself should be straight forward, and all your current wiring will plug right in. You’ll probably have to add the wiring for the ram box locks and lights, and enable those features in the BCM.
I'm assuming the wiring is there for ram box locks and lights in the rambox bed.The swap itself should be straight forward, and all your current wiring will plug right in. You’ll probably have to add the wiring for the ram box locks and lights, and enable those features in the BCM.
