    2006 Dodge Dakota...

    I think I have found it, but if you do have access to it please inform me b/c I am only in the middle of my build.

    Also. How does the remote wire work now. On all the previous vehicles I have installed in the remote wire has just been blue and I have tied it into there. Apparently everything I find now says something about a data bus or something.

    Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you :big grin:

    you'll have to find a fuse that is in the fuse block to use, because the new dodge's don't have accessory wires.

    GREAT :( okay so once I find this fuse how do I "tie" it into that, sorry about all the questions but I thought this install would be as simple as all of my other ones. I guess I was wrong.

    k i looked it up and found that a "fuse tap" might be the best way to go. This pretty much adds a metal clip onto the accessory fuse enabling me to jump onto it with the remote wire

    k guys i figured it all out. Thanks for your input.

    What I ended up doing (if you care).

    Use the LoC for the rear two speakers in the truck. then since there was no remote or accessory wire I just went straight to the battery and hooked up a fused switch on the dash that turns on and off the subs. everything worked out great minus a small headache last night.
