Default Cab swap please help!

I just put a 2004 1500 hemi cab on my 2003 ram hemi 1500 and everything works other than it wont turn over and the gauges don't move? I used all the outer wires from the 2003 and the cab wires from the 2004 could that be the problem ? am I going to have to use all the 2003 wires ?



I know I need to use the 2003 key and switch but it should still turn over.

That is probably your issue. The wiring harnesses are not plug and play, you will probably have to move pins to different locations. What pcm did you use? Are you doing a Hemi swap, what is your main goal with swapping the 03, 04 and the 05 harness?
