I did a quick search but didn't find anything on this. Has anyone hooked up the high idle feature on the 6.7 with the upfitter switch option? I had asked my dealership to activate this while it was there for service figuring they would hook it up to one of the upfitter switches, but when I talked to the service guy he said he hooked it up to activate only when low voltage was recognized by the computer and not by the switch. I was basically wondering how hard this is if a wanted to do it myself and if anybody had a writeup, pictures or any type of input.

Hopefully they dont charge ya much, if your good making wire connections, if memory serves its only hooking 4 wires together under that dash. Doesnt take long, i have mine set to Upfitter #4.
Note: in-case any of you had it in the older trucks, the E-brake must be set for it to function now.

that sucks about the E-brake having to be set for it to idle up. Any way to get around that? I hate using the E-brake. I may or may not always forget to release it upon moving the vehicle.

Not aware of a work around. But it does only have to be engaged 1 click just enough to have the light come on. And if you put it in gear w/o disengaging the truck will let you know right away on the dash.
In winter i just click it once and turn on my upfitter switch as i leave the vehicle, that way when i remote start the high idle kicks in.

Thanks man, sounds good.

Update: regarding the SEIC (stationary elevated idle control). My dealership charged me $116 to "install" the SEIC feature. The service rep mentioned he had to order a resistor (a few bucks), e-mail the people at the fleet segment to get some install info, and the mechanic figuring it out to get it installed.

Now it works, upfitter switch #1. Idle's the truck up to 1150 RPM. What does anyone else's SEIC feature idle the truck up to, specifically on a 6.7.

Thats a Good Question but going by this the Max is supposed to be 900 RPM's

Engine speed increases to the target and hydraulic line pressure increases with engine speed to a
maximum of 150 psi at 900 rpm.

Typical SEIC Sequence for TorqShift™ PTO
Initiating SEIC by applying battery voltage to the SEIC-PTO wire immediately commands the PCM to first look for
enabling conditions, such as vehicle gearshift selector in PARK, engine at base idle speed of about 650 rpm, etc.
A complete list of enablers is provided in the "SEIC Enable/Disable Conditions" section of this bulletin. Once
enablers are satisfied then the following takes place:
1. Command is sent to boost hydraulic line pressure in the transmission about 20-30 psi, which is used by the
aftermarket PTO supplier to hold their PTO clutch.
2. Command is sent to increase engine speed to 900 rpm and when transmission is ready, ramps to target
speed using a resistor.
3. The low-side driver circuit changes from open-circuit to ground. If the up-fitter uses the circuit wiring offered
in this bulletin then this will provide battery voltage to the aftermarket PTO solenoid to engage the PTO.
4. Engine speed increases to the target and hydraulic line pressure increases with engine speed to a
maximum of 150 psi at 900 rpm.
Looks like ya got about 250 Over kill :~( which will increase the Hydraulic line past a safe level of 150 psi :~(

You may need to get that Corrected ?

That is for using the PTO . And I believe the trans will just reach its max working pressure @ 900rpm, but from what i read about it, it just stays @ 150psi.

And if you want to engage the PTO portion of it, you have to shift into gear without touching the brake. And power a 2nd wire which isnt called for just for the basic high idle setup

And most of us run @ 1200 rpm for a high idle so your right in the ball park.

doesnt it automatically kick into high idle below a certain temp. mine does. but the SEIC is just there to lock it in high idle and on command.

$116 HOLY HELL you coulda hired a mexican to hold the peddle constant for less .:hehe: all it takes is a small resistor and 15 minutes. maybe we shoulda start a high idle outfitter company. 1150-1200rpm is normal unless you have it rigged to be adjustable

I Gotcha :thumb: That makes sense!

I'm here to learn and I've learned quite a Bit in the last couple month :nod::thumb::icon_ford: Thanks to You guys like you and Matty21 with more than two Brain cells :hehe::thumb: Keep the Info Coming....

First thing that came to mind haha! Thats what were all here for. But a tad of humour doesnt hurt either .
Id recommend using a small Potentiometer ( or reostat) as I still call them . Then u can adjust from idle up to 1500 rpm I believe. I find 1200 is a touch high just to warm up. I usually dial it in for 900 during the winter
