08 Ram w/Infinity System, Navi & Rear VES

Post by 08Ram3500Mega » Tue May 08, 2018 6:49 am

Does anyone know if the CH2 connects the audio coming from the rear VES to the aftermarket head unit? I swapped my stock MyGIG deck for a Pioneer AVIC-8100NEX and I don't have any audio out of the factory speakers when I play a movie in the rear DVD player. I did when the stock deck was in. I got the pin out for the 10 pin plug that plugged into the stock deck, but I haven't had a chance to verify what the three wires on the 10 pin plug of the CH2 match up to. Can anyone help?

We are not able to retain VES in this firmware.

Do I have any options other than hard wiring? What are the three wires on the CH2 harness going into the 10 pin connector for?

The VES is controlled via data. It cannot be hardwired.

The three wires are for OEM uConnect audio. In this firmware, they don't really serve a purpose.

OK. Thank you. So I can cut them off the CH2 harness and it will not affect anything?

Correct. Or just loop the plug back and tape it to the harness.
