Can someone help me identify these unused electrical connections on my 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 Mega cab? Found them after opening the radio bezel.

They're for options you don't have, one of them being the key switch to shut off the passenger front airbag because you have a back seat (regular cabs only).

Thanks. I haven't checked to see if they have power yet. If they do, would be any issues with using them as a power source. I am adding a front camera and maybe a dash cam.

You probably don't wanna tap off the airbag one. Download this and look in the wiring diagrams:
Download a small free program called HJSplit and put them back together.

What HemiLonestar said above is correct about the connector to the right. That’s only used in single cab trucks & it’s for turning on/off the passenger airbag. Here is a link to the mopar connector repair site, which works well also:


The black 10 pin connector on the left appears to be for electronic 4wd:

The blue 6 pin connector below it appears to be for an exhaust brake:
