I am trying to install an aftermarket DVD/stereo head unit and the wiring harness I bought for my truck (2009 Dodge Ram 1500 - base model) did not come with the switched 12 volt power wire so I am needing to find it in the original stereo wiring harness. Anyone know what color it is??

I found this wiring diagram:

If I am reading it correctly it should be grey/red but wanted to confirm before I started splicing into wires.

Also, any advice on where to run a wire to hook up for the reverse to get the backup camera hooked up? tia

There's not, it's all controlled by the EVIC with the factory radio. You have to tap into another wire to get the 12 volt signal or get a CAN BUS that creates the 12 volt signal wire. I just used the cigarette lighter 12 volt line and tapped into that. The CAN BUS will cost you $50-$100 depending on where you get it from, but it will have all the other signal wires you're looking for as well, i.e. illumination, reverse, etc.
