Ram 1500 2018 Kenwood DDX9705S with RR and CH3 odb

Post by cyardley » Sat Aug 25, 2018 11:39 am

I am having issues, i am confused on the wiring of the odb2 wires. I think i found the CAN Junction under the drivers side behind the odb2 connector but the wires are not matching up for what they say in the instructions as far as colors go, so any chance of getting more info and a better picture of where the wires are located on the junction.

See attached. Use any of the white two-pin plugs. Yellow will always be your can low, and the other wire on the two-pin (the color can vary) is your can high.

Out in the open, at the far left end of the driver's side dash.

after making the proper connections for the CAN wires perform a hard reset on the MRR module. Below is a link to how to perform this procedure.

Sorry to jump in here but this is pretty much the issue I'm having. I have a 2018 Ram 1500 Tradesman Ecodiesel. I've flashed and installed the RR(it was previously installed n my 2017 Tacoma and worked fine) along with a DMX7704. I have tried a few different combos on the above pictured factory harness, the last two wires I tried were the first set green and yellow. I have verified and rechecked all connection several times, I've performed the hard resets. My gauges are not greyed out, but I get either "not responding" message or "Error 1", some times it will pop up a message asking me to verify connection then try a re-connect. Not sure if it is tied to the trim level of my truck. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Check and see if you have a connector with solid blue and solid yellow in the last connector in the green junction block (white plugs). If so connect the brown/yellow to yellow and brown/red to blue.

I have a solid blue and yellow, but it’s the 3rd connector in not last.

Any of those 2-pin connectors will work; they are all HS can. The wire closest to the clip is can high, and the other wire (commonly yellow) is can low.
