EBPV Exhaust Brake

I am wanting to turn the EBPV into an exhaust brake. I really want to run a swith, with the on being stock and off cutting power so that it never runs. I seen a guy who had a shift nob with a button run to control it when he wanted to use it as a brake. Is it possible to have it on a swith with on/off mode AND have it hooked up to a shift nob for brake purposes. I'm not an electrician by any means but I am capable of doing a lot of simple wiring. I hope my idea makes sense to at least someone.

yes it is possible. I have done it.

it involves 2 diodes, a resistor and the switch of your choice.

I don't have the schematic on my computer, but someone should be along shortly with the link for you.

the reason for the resistor is to drop the voltage, the actuator operates on 8v from the PCM, and the Diodes are to keep from back feeding the PCM and hurting it.
