The RES that you purchased that came out of a Challenger is a LOW SPEED CAN BUS unit

you have a Dodge Ram within the years 2009 - 2012, they use a High Speed Can Bus radio

see if you can return it
__________________________________________________ _______

if you do buy a used RES high speed unit, the external Uconnect Module may or may not work
i don't know if they also need to be the same Bus Speed

if you get a chance to purchase another High Speed unit, these are all 4th Gen Ram stock radios, from cheapest to the best
there are 2 high speed bus RES 130 radios, do NOT get the one without the Phone hard key button
then there are two 430 high speed radios, RBZ & REN, neither have navigation, but both are set up for the tailgate handle mounted Parkview camera
the next radio is the RHB 430N, it has navigation & the same camera can be used with it
the top of the line stock radios are the RHR & RER 730N, both have Navigation & again use the camera, the do not need the Uconnect external module

another thing to check for is the mounting brackets, some are mounted on the top & bottom
the 4th Gen Rams have the brackets on the sides of the radio

check out this site for more info about the stock radios

this site is for the after market radios that you can install
they are listed as either FIT or Modified FIT
