You cannot hook to the OBD2 with the 2018 ram; the gauges will not work. You must go to the can junction, on the far left driver's side of the dash.

See this thread for pictures.

EXACTLY WHERE THIS JUNCTION BOX IS LOCATED.
THERE IS ONE LOOKED BELOW DATCH, AND WHAT WOULD BE THE CABLES TO BE USED

See where the white line is pointing.

It looks like this. Use the green block with white plugs.

Any of the 2 pin plugs. They are ALL the same can signal.

I have updated the Maestro to the current flash for the specific ram 2500 and kenwood dmx905s radio. I have enabled all of the factory options including park assist on the flash.

The backup camera is not working. When I put the truck in reverse nothing happens. If I try to set up the backup camera lines, I see the camera feed just fine. I am sure the camera has power and is providing a video feed.

I tested the purple with white wire and do not show 12 volt power. Engine on, vehicle in reverse there is not power on the purple with white wire. The Maestro harness Purple with white is connected to the kenwood radio purple with white.

Is there a work around?

The backup camera is LVDS in the 2018+ Rams, and is unable to be retained at this time. We are in the process of making a LVDS to composite adapter so that it can be retained, but the hardware is still in the works right now.
