Another High Idle Mod Question...

Ok Gentlemen...I need your help! Read carefully, I have an 06' 6.0l and I did the high idle mod.

I keep finding other posts where some guys tied into the orange wire and others the purple/green striped wire for the pto. Which one is it???

I tied into the purple/green striped wire and ran a 10amp fused link from the customer access #29 slot. I had to run a switch because my truck didn't come with the upfitters (I'm gonna get em though). It works great! With trans in park & e-brake on, it jumps right up to 1200rpm. Thats one of the questions...should it shoot upto 1200rpm so quickly or should it slowly climb upto rpms??? I saw a youtube vid on an 08' with the high idle mod and it very slowly went upto 1200rpm (which I like).

Should I have tied into a different wire? I want to know from a Ford Tech which one I am supposed to use exactly, I want it right. The truck is also still new and under warranty so it visits dealership occasionally and if they get nosy...I want to make sure it's how factory would have done it.

Bottom line, which wire is the right one? Gradually increase rpms or shoot up quickly? It seems as though it should be gradual, especially when starting cold.

Thanks for the help guys!!!

This is how I did mine and it comes up slow like you want. Not sure of the difference between using this wire and going straight to the #fuse maybe relay inbetween or something. Worth looking at though. Good luck it sure is a nice, simple and cheap addition.

I just did the high idle mod on my 05 today. I hooked in to the solid orange wire, & the rpm's come up slowly. I connected to the pruple/lt green on my 04 and the rpm's came up slowly on that one also.

Orange wire is PTO elevates to 1200 RPM slowly as to not damage a PTO if one were present

purple/green wire is the BCP wire Battery Charge Protect Circuit which will vary the RPM's from 1200-2400 depending on battery load this also Elevates the rpms but very fast to 1200

I was wondering about that. Thanks for the clarification.

It will definitely help with the heating and A/C. From what I understand, if you have extended idle times, moisture will cause 'wet stacking ' in the exhaust.
High idle (1200 rpm's) will prevent that.
