The issue may not be with the ground wirebut may be because something is causing a ground. The radio can use a chassis ground and may not have a dedicated ground wire -I haven't opened up a newer model Ram.
Check the harness...It's possible somewhere along its route it passes through a hole with no grommet - that can cause intermittent grounds. It can be as simple as a loose molex connector or solder/crimp IN the molex connector. Vehicle electric is a pain in the ass....
You can often narrow down the conductor causing the issue, but sometimes locating the origin is difficult.

Good luck.
