Default I Don't have an owners manual - what are these?

Hi All,

Got my ram about 2 months ago (ish) and I've been finding all sorts of goodies that I didn't know came with it when I bought it (jet performance module, airaid CAI, etc...). sooooooo what are these?! The first picture is of a light by the dash that's on 24/7. I've pushed buttons, flipped switches and everything in between but I can't get it to turn off or figure out what it's an indication of. The second 2 pics are of a little thinger (great description I know) next to the rearview mirror. No idea what it is but it says "HX Plus" on it. My apologies if these come with all rams - mine didn't come with the owners manual so I can't look to see if that's the case. Any help is appreciated. Thanks All!

Looks like part of an aftermarket security/remote start system to me. It's not factory.

mmmmmm the truck DID come with a remote start system - I'm guessing that the thinger by the windshield may be the sensor for it? Not sure about the light though. There is a switch by the hood release that turns the remote start system off and on but the light never goes off no matter what position the switch is in. Any guesses for the light?

Not outside my first guess. I'd say you're right about the sensor on the windshield being for the remote start.

well thanks for the help - at least that's 1/2 mysteries solved! Feel free to chime in if anyone else has any ideas about the light. Thanks again!

Is the red light on at all times? Or only when your key is in the ignition?

It's on at all times - key or no key.

Do you have a alarm on the truck?

Hey take a look at this ad on craigslist. This might be what you have. At least from the picture, that thing on your windshield looks like the one in the photo.

It's an avital avistart5103 alarm and remote start. The model is probably not the same but you can check out the maker's website and find a manual once you find the alarm box in your truck, probably under the dash.

I'm not entirely sure... Like I said, it came with a bunch of things that the guy who sold it to me never mentioned. I was able to find out that the remote starter is a Avital® 4103 Remote Start with Keyless Entry. Doesn't look like there are any "security" features that came with it by the descriptions I've found
