Why did you mention the orange wire? Is it needed for this?

the orange wire can be used to do the same thing, the engine will idle at 1200rpm(when 12v is introduced to the orange wire and the parking brake is set) but when using the orange wire it will also lock up the converter. the orange wire is meant for operating the pto(power take off) on the trans, for most guys doing this mod they are not actuating the pto its just being used for warm up. so theres no need to have the the trans and fluid heating up for no reason, thats why most guys use the battery protection wire(purple wire with the green stripe)

people have said it can be adjusted by limiting voltage when using the battery protection wire. but i wired a potentiometer in between the battery protection wire and a 12v source and it did not work. with 12v it would idle at 1200, with 6v it idled normal and voltages in between there it sounded like it was camming(searching for idle)

When I did the mod the wire for my upfitter switches where numbered so it made that real easy(orange with a blue stripe) and the other wire was purple with a green stripe. I used the same connectors as you did in the video, easier than messing with the butt connectors.

I was thinking this very same thing. I would think you could use a switched accessory hot from the fuse box to do so

dieselv8, yes the upfitter wires do have tags, mine have since been removed, but ill still make a quick vid, some people like to have a vid before they stuff to their trucks even if its the same wiring operation with different color wires.
