I'll get right down to it. My trucks' (2000 dodge ram 1500 v6 3.9L) OBD2 connector is not giving off any power to connect to the scanner so that I can get it smogged.
(12.27)The day before I was due for a smog; I installed new speakers, headunit, subs, amp and everything worked amazingly. 2 hours of joy riding and listening to music, my entire system I just installed died. I spent the next 4-5 hours checking fuses, rewiring the entire audio portion of the car, taking the headunit apart to see if god was nice enough to put a fuse in there that had blown (he wasnt =P). So I figured the HU just took a ****, and to get a new one (i held off on that till today).
(12.28) I went to go have my car smogged for registration, to find that the guy doing the smog cant connect anything to my obd2. He and I checked around for a little bit to see if we could find any cut wires or something of the sort; no good. So he tells me to go to Dodge and get the connector (i went and ordered it). I took the truck home and looked around a little more, and found a wire that was cut, so i reconnected it, and took it to the smog shop down the street just to see if his obd2 scanner would connect; no good. He tells me to check the "pink wire" so I went home and followed that pink wire all the way up behind the instrument cluster (thats as far as I could go) and now I'm stuck.
Next issue is the radio. I bought a new head unit, installed it; no power. I took a test light and found that the red power cable has power, but the yellow batter constant has none. So I tried taking the constant power from the 12v plug (for cell phone chargers etc) and use that, and it worked.
So, I have my battery constant for my radio, and my obd2 power cable that are dead (no fuses are blown) and I'm stuck. So any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
