Another Dumb @$$ can't get high idle to work

so I'm trying to get a high idle going in my truck, followed the instructions to a tee, connected up-fitter #4(orange-light blue stripe), to the orange PTO wire. used butt connectors and a piece of wire. apply E-brake, manuel trans in neutral. start her up, let her idle for 20 seconds, hit the switch, waited over a minute, nada, truck stays at stock idle. Any ideas what i did wrong?

truck is an 06 with the 6 speed.

Doug

I did the same thing with mine when I first did it, the wire you need on an '05+ is the Pruple/Green Stripe, it's in that same bundle as the PTO wiring. I'll post a step by step write up that I posted on another forum

I'm not sure it can be done with a manual shift, unless you buy the external box.

Can still be done, mine was easy, I just have to make sure to do a neutral shake before you fire it up since I disabled the switch that makes you have to push the clutch to start it (in preparation for a remote start)

No, no, no... It CAN be done. You just need the right wire.

so i couldn't wait to go back to the shop, 15 min drive each way. So out comes the trusty multi-tool in the driveway. took all of 30 seconds to switch to the purple/green stripe wire. worked like a charm, i can high idle to my hearts content. a special thank you is in order for PowerStroke07 for pointing me in the right direction.
