Do I have High Idle?

Been thinking about doing the high idle mod, then the other morning it was cold and I started the truck to warm up. After a couple minutes, it kicked up to a little over 1000rpm. When I got in and tapped the brakes it dropped back down to normal. Did the same thing yesterday. I thought there was a switch or something you had to turn on. I just bought the truck about four months ago. Any way to tell if I already have it?

They all come with an high idle when the motor is at a certain temp or below. There is a way to high idle when you want it too. For many different reasons.

This is for the 05+:

Yeppers, just follow the instructions. But, if I had the 05, I would want to look at getting the upfitter kit. Instantly adding factory switches for a few more things.

That depends on what year your truck is.
If it is an 05, 06 or 07, yes, you can use the directions in the link above.
Earlier builds are different.
EDIT: Wow, I really have to stop clicking on posts and doing something else for 15 minutes, and then posting.......

Is there a link or a way todo it on a 04 I'm right now useing a prybar to idle my truck up for the coolent flush. But I know I have a high idle due to the cold weather in the morning in Minnesota. Would Tousley have any parts for this since I will be going there in the morning to pick up my ICP sensor?

Thanks guys
Aaron

Just a switch! 04's are easy to do.
