A common problem when replacing a transmission is finding out the harness connectors or electronics are not compatible between different years, even when all else is the same. You may want to look into a low-cost lease versus throwing money at an older vehicle that is turning into a money pit. If you already replaced the tranny you can adapt some harnesses and sensors but that will take a mechanic, at the least you need to know the year and part number of donor trans and what controls it used compared to your original trans. Someone on a dedicated Dodge truck forum might then be able to walk you through adapting it.
