APCM or Auxillary Idle controller

Has anyone ever used one of these and are they easy to install? I am looking to get one before winter hits and was wondering what anyone could tell me about them! Thanks

Another question is do you have a chip on your rig? If you do you can get a high idle option put on it

I have one in my truck. easy to install, simple to use. The only thing I dont like about it, you have to have the park brake engaged for it to work...its a safty thing.
You wouldnt need a high idle from a chip, if you have the Auxillary Idle controller.
It dosent get that cold here in NC, but on occasion I use the high idle option. I've used it most of the time when someone has a dead battery.

I have them in both of my trucks and love it. Yes you can have a position on your chip for hi-idle also. The APCM is nice for the digital tach and digital voltage.

If you want more pics of the one I think you are looking at let me know.
