High Idle Mods

Do differant years react differantly? I have a 2004 built in Sept 2003 and when I throw my switch it idles up just fine weather or not the parking brake is set. I thought I had read the brake had to be set?

what is this high idle mod?? sounds like somthing you to rig up on the truck with a switch.. and whats the point..my 05 has a high idle in cold weather..when it gets down in the teens it will run itself up to 1200rpm, this AM was about 40 out..i think when i jumped in it was at about 900.. as soon as i tap the brake pedal it idles down... so my question i guess..if not for faster warm ups..whats the point??

As Stoker mentioned, the 6.0 is programmed to high idle when cold and will return to "normal" idle when the brake pedal is tapped. The high idle mod gives you the ability to run up the idle on demand (provided the truck is in park, parking brake is set on newer models, etc.). Why do this? It will prevent wet stacking during extended idles when warm, helps the A/C work more effectively when cooling the cabin on hot days, and increases alternator output if you need to jump start someone.

As far as I know, there's no way of deprogramming the factory high idle.

I was just playing with mine. In park no parking brake is needed but in neutral it needs the parking brake. Weird how much these trucks vary from truck to truck.
