Bought a tradesman truck with the 5.0 screen with only a fifthwheel tailgate last year and finally just bought a brand new oem tailgate with tailgate lock and oem back up camera. the locks worked as soon as I plugged all the connections in but the camera didnt. Took the truck last week to the dealership to program the code to turn it on and all they could get was a blue screen. the tech told me we had to run the harness from the tailgate to the radio. Is this true? I thought if the wiring for the lock was there the wiring for the camera was there.
Anyone know where to buy only the harness that runs from the gate to the radio?

Having the locking tailgate does not mean you have the backup wiring. I had to run the new harness when i installed mine.

I have the same problem but I can correct it by opening the tailgate and shutting it again thehit the inside bed of the tailgate.. the dealership stated that the back up camera screws up on a lot of rams.
