    Hey Ryan. I’m located in Brunswick Ohio and friends with That_wide_f150 and chasing_heavens (you might know them) we are just starting a Ohio truck club and I’m looking to get my 10’ tundra repainted silver this summer and was wondering if you’d up for the work? I’ll be doing all the preparation and sanding just need someone to paint and clear coat the truck. Feel free to message my company Insta @reffnerlawncare or my truck page @5.7_yotta

    I would suggest getting a new head unit so you don’t have to deal with the factory uconnect, it’ll also make your life a whole lot easier not having to run a LOC.

    Hey for the audio system issues I bought stuff that is plug and play for my amps. I think that truck has active noise canceling with causes problems also. Check out

  • TheIamdevin

    Ryan do it right! Get the rockford fosgate dsr1,proper adapter harnesses for your truck and it will remove your oem amp and replace it with this. I did it in my 2019 ram 1500 and it was so easy,sound quality control is insane,no splicing oem wires all plug and play etc

    I can tell you exactly what is wrong. When the factory radio in the vehicle doesn’t detect a load on the speaker line it puts the radio into protect. You need to use a load resistor in line on the speaker wire before it goes into your line output converter 47 ohm 5 watt. This will fix it

    if you are upgrading your truck sound system from a tradesman to a longhorn as far as long horn Amps and speakers be sure to also change the deck to a longhorn deck. its the deck that sit behind the head unit. Not the head unit with the screen but the separate deck behind the screen because the head unit talks to the amp as you mentioned. Its programmed so that a tradesman deck will only talk to a tradesman amp. (get deck from pick a part) instead of paying dealer. I am not 100% sure what the internals are on a ram but that is what I had to do with ford F150 going from Xlt to Platinum sound system. Now If you are trying to add a aftermarket amp that is a different problem, you will need to get a device that will allow that. For ford its the Zen A2 B , but unsure about the ram. Maybe this can point you in the right direction if anything. Hope it helps. sorry for the long comment.

    Resisters won’t work! Had the same issue on a 300 srt. Audio control makes an output from the factory amp to give you proper sound out

  • Gary Miller
    Gary Miller

    You might have to tap into the speaker wires right out of the head unit and disconnect the factory amp to make your aftermarket amp work. That’s what I had to do to make my set up work in my Tahoe. Try it and let me know if it works and if not I’ll keep trouble shooting it with ya

    Ryan, not sure how dodge works but this seems to be a classic issue with improper load detected and the system shutting down.. I know with Ford, a lot of systems need to detect the proper resistance for all channels or it shuts off audio.. well unless you back fed and cooked any factory circuits/amps.. that's why we use harnesses a lot and if there is a speaker in a location make sure its hooked up and hooked up correctly.. I am wondering if you have a harness to go in between head unit and output with any needed resistors or connections if it will resolve your issue.. Like you mention these vehicles are too smart for their own good these days.. I had to use a special harness in my truck to go from head unit to DSP then dsp to amps and then amps back up to the harness then from the harness it used factory speaker wires.. I hate center channels and I remember i had issues when i unhooked that speaker and my audio system from Ford would shut off .. once i disabled that channel via OBD all good.

    I know you already invested a bit of $$$ into getting the 8.4 Uconnect but have you considered swapping to the T-Style head unit from LinksWell? Only reason I didn’t put it in my 17’ 2500 SLT was that it didn’t have the XM compatibility that I already had with stock, so I put a KENWOOD in instead.

    You need to put resistors on the speaker wires after they go out to the RCA’s that way the factory radio sees there is a load and you should have that problem solved

    Ryan I have a 2018 tradesmen. I put the UAQ radio in there I had to use diode‘s just like you. I have a JL audio 500/1 and a JL audio 300/4 just put the diode‘s in and you will see you’ll have sound. Have you ever heard of speed wire speaker wire. It would’ve been so much easier for you to do that. Get your speaker leads from the back of the head unit then run them to the amp

    Ryan when you want to completely drain system of 12volts you should connect the negative and positive cables together off the battery..computers will hold electric for a long time..connecting them together sends it all to frame ground and completely drains power..and that will still take a hour or so...good luck bro..wish I was close I'd get ya running with sound...

ALL your problems would be resolved with an aftermarket HU, wiring harness and dash kit. There is no way I would tow that thing to the dealership. They will turn it right around in the parking lot.

    Did you disconnect the factory amp. All trucks come with some type of factory amp just not the alpine quality amp. Some trucks need a wiring harness to fix the issue and some require you to completely eliminate the factory amp from the system. That explains the volume issue you had as well

    Great build so far! Anytime u are going to do music on any dodge truck u just gotta buy that $400 harness my 07 was the same way did not like the line output converter. You should just bite the bullet and buy it you will not regret spending the money on it for the quality of the sound you will get. Just my opinion though! Keep up the great vids thanks man!
