High idle switch setup

I did a quick search but didn't find anything on this. Has anyone hooked up the high idle feature on the 6.7 with the upfitter switch option? I had asked my dealership to activate this while it was there for service figuring they would hook it up to one of the upfitter switches, but when I talked to the service guy he said he hooked it up to activate only when low voltage was recognized by the computer and not by the switch. I was basically wondering how hard this is if a wanted to do it myself and if anybody had a writeup, pictures or any type of input.

Hopefully they dont charge ya much, if your good making wire connections, if memory serves its only hooking 4 wires together under that dash. Doesnt take long, i have mine set to Upfitter #4.
Note: in-case any of you had it in the older trucks, the E-brake must be set for it to function now.

that sucks about the E-brake having to be set for it to idle up. Any way to get around that? I hate using the E-brake. I may or may not always forget to release it upon moving the vehicle.

Not aware of a work around. But it does only have to be engaged 1 click just enough to have the light come on. And if you put it in gear w/o disengaging the truck will let you know right away on the dash.
In winter i just click it once and turn on my upfitter switch as i leave the vehicle, that way when i remote start the high idle kicks in.
