  1. Frank, the 2005 Dodge Dakota reverse wire is the white/light green wire at the IPM module under the hood. Hope this helps. Good luck with your 2005 Dodge Dakota reverse camera installation.

  2. I am looking for the placement of the 2005 Dodge Dakota reverse wire that triggers 12v when truck is put into reverse. I need it for a reverse camera. I believe it is the white wire with a light green stripe.

  3. Amer, yes this is normal for all United States Domestic cars. Hope this helps. Good luck with your new 2006 Dodge Dakota.

  4. Hello, I bought 2006 dodge dakota, it is still have the original radio system. i have a problem that i can’t tune the radio frequency for even numbers (like 99.0). the only numbers i can tune is odd numbers. is this normal or there is something i can do to solve this? Thanks, Amer Sha’er.

  5. Kelly, you have to ground your aftermarket radio to the chassis (vehicle frame) when you don’t have a factory ground wire in the stereo wire harness. Simply ground your wire to the chassis (look below).

    1. Find some bare metal on your vehicle (somewhere near your factory radio harness). Make sure this bare metal touches the chassis (frame) of the vehicle.

    2. Connect a ring terminal to the black wire coming off your aftermarket radio harness.

    3. Use a self tapping screw to attach the black wire with ring terminal to the bare metal.

    Hope this helps. Good luck with grounding your 2005 Dodge Dakota car stereo.

  6. Jrich, technically you could connect your 2005 Dodge Dakota amplifier turn on wire to the radio switched 12v+ wire. That way your amplifier is on whenever your 2005 Dodge Dakota is on and off whenever your 2005 Dodge Dakota is off. Just make sure to run an in-line fuse holder with a 1-amp fuse on the amplifier turn on wire. Hope this helps. Good luck with your amp install.

  7. im hooking up an amp to my factory 2005 dodge dakota radio. And im confused on where to hook the remote power wire up to (color wise if possible.) can someone please help?
