It’s not difficult to dismantle and install a Dodge RAM head unit from 2002 to 2006. After installation, you will have a new unit with more functions. The video below will be a good example. You will have GPS navigation system, Bluetooth, IPod and so on in your car stereo.
Though it’s not difficult to upgrade a Dodge RAM head unit, it has several steps. You should do it right. And, it’s not recommended to do the upgrade yourself if you didn’t have any training before.
If you insist to do it yourself, you can ask a professional for help. The following steps are for your reference. You can refer to it but not rely on it. Please disconnect the negative cable on the vehicle battery to ensure security. Please prepare tools for the upgrade. A lever and a screwdriver are needed. Please protect the front seats and trim panel during upgrade, too.
Remove the original Dodge RAM head unit:
Step1, remove the trim panel. The trim panel is big. And, you should remove it from the bottom of the steering wheel. Picture 1 is the left bottom of the trim panel. Pry the gap as it shows. And, the part which is under the bottom of the steering wheel can be removed easily.
Now, move to the right bottom of the trim panel and remove the screw in the hole.
Then, use a lever to pry the trim panel until it is loosened.
At last, take it off the dashboard.
Step2, remove the radio. Remove the screws and take the unit out of the dash. You will see wires at the back of the unit. Disconnect them and put the unit away.
The original car stereo is removed now. The next is to install the new unit in your car. The installation would be similar between different new units. Please install it correctly. If you are confused with the wires connections, please ask for help.
After installation, don’t forget to test the new unit. Pay attention to GPS navigation system, radio, TV and so on if it has these functions. If there are any problems, please contact your dealer for help.
In most cases, new units will work well in the car model they are specialized for. Wish you enjoy upgrade and enjoy the time with your new stereo.
