2011 Ram 2500 Maestro/Kenwood install

Post by Djcal32 » Mon Dec 04, 2017 10:41 pm

Hello all, newbie here and I have a question. I have a 2011 Ram 2500 Outdoorsman with the factory Alpine system non navigation. My wife got me a Christmas present of a Kenwood DDX9903s and Idatalink Maestro for the truck. This included a new Sirius kit and Idatalink Chrysler wiring kit and the harness to integrate the back up camera/video system, which my truck didn't come with. I am an experienced installer but I have ran into a bit of a snag, the install went really well and upon testing everything the back up camera comes on but not when putting the vehicle into reverse. I can push the back up camera button and it comes on, but again when placing the vehicle in reverse, the Kenwood doesn't automatically kick into the back up camera. I have searched everywhere on the net. I am also going to reach out to Idatalink, just thought someone may have an idea. Thanks in advance.

Did you hook up the purple/white wire from the maestro harness to the radio?

Did you make sure the reverse interrupt screen is set to ON in the Kenwood menus?

Is the truck automatic or manual transmission?

Hello,
Yes I hooked up the purple wire from the Kenwood to the Idatalink harness.
I will double check that that option is turned on.

The truck is an automatic.
Thank you for the reply as well.
