TC Switch?

I JUST GOT DONE PUTTING A LOCKUP SWITCH IN MY TRUCK TODAY AND WHEN I TURN IT OFF AROUND 40 THE o/d LIGHT ON THE SHIFTER BLINKS OFF AND ON FOR ABOUT 3-5 MINUTES. WHAT DID I DO WRONG

Did you splice into the wire from the PCM or cut it?

Nothing. It is normal. Most of the instructions say to tap the wire. This will make the light flash, no big deal. It hurts nothing. I have had one for over 100K miles. I used it durring three WOT runs. If you cut the wire and do some other stuff it will not flash.

If you used the DI instructions the light will flash. If you used Guzzle's instructions it has info on how to make it not flash. Guzzle's page is here: Welcome to guzzle's Modifications Web Page

ALL I DID WAS STRIP THE INSULATION BACK A LITTLE AND WRAPED THE WIRE TO THE SWITCH AROUND THE PURPLE AND YELLOW WIRE THEN HEAT WRAPED IT. I AM A LITTLE CONCERNED BECAUSE I ABOUT GET WIPLASH WHEN IT SHIFTS IT FEELS LIKE IM GOING TO BREAK SOMETHING

Dude, don't sweat it. I use it on the drag strip and when sled pulling, you ain't gonna brake anything. Your TC is spring loaded like a clutch plate. It actually has some cushion built in. My TC is solid discs and it hits hard as hell.

It is all good.
