Splicing into OBDII, 2006 Magnum, nex1330, maestro rr Ch2

Post by JordanT » Thu Aug 23, 2018 12:19 pm

Hello all.

I recently purchased and installed a pioneer nex 1330, maestro rr and ch2 harness in my 2006 dodge magnum rt.

Overall I am pleased with the purchase except one thing, when I ordered the harness online off amazon and bought another one in Best Buy, neither had the obd ii port connecter. Instead I have two wires, this was dissapointing as the pictures on both their websites made it look like I would just be able to plug it into the port.

Part of the reason I bought was because I was nervous at the thought of having to splice into my obdii port.

Is there an adapter available for the ch2 harness that would allow me to splice the wires off the harness into it so I could just plug into the port?

If not where would I find the wiring to splice into the obdii port on my magnum?

Thanks in advance anyone who can help

The older versions of the harness did not come with an OBD2 plug. It sounds like you got older stock when you bought from both places. I can ship an OBD2 port to you; PM me your shipping address.

Hello, I have this same issue. I purchased the Maestro RR and CH-2 cable on 6/7/2018 from my local audio shop to replace a broken pac audio device. On page 4 of the install guide, for step 4, I'm missing everything in the shaded box. My cable is not terminated with the black 2 pin connector or has no cable remotely close to matching the OBDII port.

Should I go back to the dealer or is that something customer service can address?

Thanks in advance!
