hi idle mod question

I just spent 1.5 hours looking for this.
I read the TSB and it confused me more. Is it as simple as hooking two wires to each other?
the yellow green wire and the brown wire for the #4 upfitter?
if so. I know where the brown wire is where is the yellow green wire


thanks guys

Yes it is just hooking up two wires. Both bundles are right above the e brake pedal. One bundle has 12 or 14 wires and the other bundle has 4 wires which is the wires for the upfitter switches. Try powerstroke nation. They have a tech file there with pictures. It makes it pretty easy.

My high idle throws a wrench light the odd time I think p162e or something. I just clear it and it works. Anyone else got that

Prevents wet stacking. It's easier for you to google it. I'm sure there are some great articles online about diesels and wet stacking.

Interesting, I thought it was used to warm your engine up in cold weather. Considering these trucks were designed to pour fuel into the exhaust I wouldn't "Wet stacking" would be an issue.
