Hide and seek with uplifters

OK anyone know where to access the uplifter wiring area. Manual says contact dealer or driver side instrument panel. I have been playing hide and seek with no success.

Are you talking about the little box below the steering wheel? If you remove the access panel under the steering wheel, you should be able to find them bundled under the steering column. They are labeled so they aren't hard to identify.

in my 08 you had to take off the panel below the steering wheel, and the wires were tucked away to the left of the column, almost directly underneath the headlight switch.

I know there are cut wires from the upfitter switches in the panel under the steering wheel, I had to remove my fuse box to access them (not hard, only 4 bolts, 8MM???? maybe 10mm, can't remember) There is also something for the switches behind the glove box, I've not had to access that portion of the wiring though. Good luck

I have an 08. So the panel under the steering wheel must be the place. Does this snap out or are there bolts? Thanks
