Default Re: How-To: OHC Install

I have the same spot on my glass KyBucks10. I thought it was when I touched it with the solder iron. Maybe not.

Anyway, here is a pic that I promised.

Does your ohc lamps come on when you guys open your door? Mine do not and I was wondering if this is right. Everything else on the ohc works and is calibrated just wondering.

Mine comes on with the dome light when I open the door. Did you tie the ohc into the dome?

Bold: Means the wires coming from my OHC Plug
Gry/yellow....pink/black(behind radio)
blk/gry....blk/gry(near parking break(wiring bundle)
grn/orng...grn/orng(DIMMER SWITCH(the rollable one beside the headlights)
blk/blue....blue/red(DIMMER SWITCH)
blue/red....blue/red(behind Radio)
temp sensor wires.

Theres my set up right now. The display works, but the dome light only comes on when I turn the head lights on. I have a 2004 Edge supercab. My Dad said its no problem, we'll spend Saturday with a meter fixing the dome light(seeing as the display works, and hes like an electrical genious :P )

But rwenzing, you seem like a god with these OHC's, think I tapped into the wrong wire somewhere?

The two that you sent to the dimmer switch should've just gotten wired to the your existing dome light ....

this is the color wires and what they go to and where to run them.

Black (BK) - ground (mounted to the mounting bracket) Yellow/Gray (YE/GY) - console electronics power (goes behind the radio) Blue/Red (BL/RD) - console display dimmer input (goes behind the radio) Green/Orange(GN/OR) - Map light power (goes to the dome light) Black/Blue(BK/BL) - Dome light power (goes to the dome light) Lt. Blue/White (BL/WH) - Temp sensor (front of the truck) Lt. Blue/Yellow (BL/YE) - Temp sensor (front of the truck) Gray/Black (GY/BK) - speed sensor (not used by some, but necessary) (goes behind the radio.)

Alternate OHC wire colors

red/black............. light blue/red - radio or HVAC panel black.................. chassis ground gray/yellow.......... yellow/black - radio gray/black........... gray/black at GEM connector black/light blue..... black/light blue at dome light green/orange. light green/orange at dome blue/white........... temp sensor blue/yellow.......... temp sensor

then i ran the yellow/gray, blue/red, and gray/black wires through the headliner.

Smasher......

This is the how to for adding the second wire to the dome so you can have a mustang or expo dome...... then you will also be able to hook the ohc lights to the dome..

I would probably go this route and disconnect what you have connected to the dimmer switch.

I know of a few places to mount it, I just don't know how. The little body clip thingy that is meant to go into the frame is busted on mine.

I got it in place for good I hope haha. I chose a different spot than original, and I calibrated it, so its only one degree lower than what my phone says.
