The wire colors under the dash are not designed to match on any vehicle, they match function but not color and the Curt Brake Controller Adapter # C51458 is the correct harness for your 2016 RAM. I reached out to my friend at Curt and he confirmed that when you use the manual override slide on your Curt Venturer Trailer Brake Controller, # C51110, it is designed not to send power to your vehicle brake lights. It sends signal to your trailer brakes, but not to the lights. To adapt your 7-way connector so that your trailer brake lights will illuminate when you activate the manual override on your electric brake controller, you will need Tekonsha Brake Controller Converter with 7-Way Adapter - Dodge Ram, # 30235-P.
