Uplifter problem

Hey all,

I have a 2008 f250 6.4 as a work truck.. On my uplifter switches i had a high idle installed on switch number 1 and a backup beeper installed on switch number 4.. I just installed a 21" led light bar in my bumper. Wired it to 1 of the 4 wires that go through the firewall and under the dash. From there in tried to wire it into one of the 2 remaining uplifter switches but when i touch the wires together it turns the light bar on regardless if the switch is on or off, but shuts off when i turn my key off.. Any ideas?

upfitter is the term

check the switch output sounds like you have the feed from the box to the switch vs the switch output used ? or the switch is faulty ?

ps those 4 wires that are the "pass through wires" are not hooked up at the factory to the upfitters so that may be your issue they are "blunt cut" and user terminated to whatever the end user wants

Be sure u didn't accidentally hook the wires to the other blunt connectors that are feed to PTO and such, some of those are hot when the key is turned on .

Also check your upfitter relays. There is one for each switch.

just to be clear the upfitter switch wires arent with the bundle of capped wires down low. they are up a little higher and there are only 4 wires coming out of a wire loom and i believe they even say aux number and amperage on the tag. just make sure youve got it wired right. ive never had an issue with all 5 of our trucks upfitters. very reliable system i think
