|Nummy76||Looks like you've really over complicated the hell out of that. I just grabbed the wire from under the dash black and purple I think. Not sure on color. Ran a wire from that to my parking light wire. So all you need to do is push parking brake down just till light on dash comes on and turn on parking brakes and ta da|

No, it does not matter if you are deleted or not.
The pot does not need to be grounded. Set the resistance for desired RPM. Then you connect the center tab and one of the outer tabs per the drawing/article.

So before I do this guys does it matter if my trucks deleted?
Next Ive got the pot here and on the back theres two tabs are those for ground wires? Or are they not used?
TIA For answer

and all others interested in this, check this out on Rudys Diesel. Seems like a plug & play if you will instead of trying to find a Radioshack in 2017 when this thread started in 2010 lol

Hi guys, this write up is awesome!! Im having trouble though. I hooked everything up per instructions with the 50K pot and its not working even with P brake applied. I used AUX#3 also. Nothing happened when I flipped the switch but when I started turning the knob the pot itself, the idle seemed to dip like I introduced a stumble, then came back up then no changes. Couldnt duplicate it again. I also let the p brake off and then reapplied, I got the big WRENCH Icon on the screen. Any ideas whats UP?
I have a 2013, is that the issue?
Pot is hooked to: white/brown stripe,- Green wire , -and Gray/Violet stripe
The Yellow/Green stripe wire is hooked to AUX3 wire

Hey guys, I just did the mod over the weekend and I found out what most of you probably know, remote start and high idle dont work. I found a seemingly complicated post about using relays to change all the upfitters to a 12v constant but didnt feel like doing that. I found a 12v constant wire in the wire harness under the door trim that did the trick for me.
So if you want to use high idle AND remote start your truck (which would seem like a given from Ford but it's not), I hooked everything up per the pictures in the first post but for the VP PWR or whatever wire (green and yellow), I ran that to a rocker switch I had and then to the WHITE w/ RED STRIPE under the door trim/kick panel. This allows me to flip the switch to ON (in the winter and I can set it to OFF when I dont want high idle) and leverage high idle via remote start. I put the switch under my steering column for now and the high idle potentiometer (pot) in the cubby by your right knee under the 12v cigarette lighter. Works great!
I hope this helps someone, as I didnt find anything on other sites after looking for a few days.
Here is the 50k pot I used.
Switch (extras for other projects if you want for the price of 1...)
