Just checking in... Did you get your truck lock circuits wired?

Got mine done today.

Wire routing took the longest. Went from right hand kick panel and followed the factory harness.

Had to drop glove box, pull defrost vent cover and radio trim for access.

Got brake switch signal from RABS module (behind radio) and dropped down the wire to near the trans tunnel for the reverse lights.

Only issue I see that can be annoying is if you had to get in your truck and just back up. As soon as you put it in park and let your foot off the brake doors lock. Rare occurrence though.

Glad you got them wired! Yeah, if you only reverse and go back to park, I guess that would initiate the lock sequence. As you said, that would be a rare occasion, so small price to pay.

I don't have a manual to test on, but I would assume it would work basically the same. Anthony may know more about that than me.

Everything is identical on a manual. Wire colors are the same for reverse lights.

Only difference is reverse lights go through the neutral safety switch on an automatic where on a manual there is a dedicated reverse light switch on the transmission.
