Anyone done the High Idle Mod?

Hey guys......
I want to do the High Idle Mod on my 04' 6.0. I think it would be a great feature to have, especially during coolant flushes.
I found the link and you tube video, however, my inquiry is.....
When looking for the White/blue striped wire, above the OBDII plug, I found that, it seems, one end was connected to the accelerator pedal electronic box and the other end seems to be connected somewhere up in the dash. To my understanding, from the video, one end of this wire is supposed to be open/not connected. Am I wrong about that? If so, would I just leave it be and splice into it to connect the switch?
Found the other wire just fine and it was not connected to anything so, no worries there.

Re: Anyone done the High Idle Mod?

Plenty of write ups on it. Did mine about 10 years ago and can't remember wire colors and going out to look won't work because I'm color blind.

Re: Anyone done the High Idle Mod?

Yeah read some write ups the info is there, I did men for our brutal winters and love it. Simple easy to do, hardest part was locating the wire bundle. If you're finding a single wire you're probably on the wrong one. I have done my truck and afew friends as well. You should find a bundle of wires that are blunt ended, that bundle is where you will find the wire your looking for. It's been my experience that you should be looking more above the parking brake in that area.

I did it, only really used it on coolant flushes. Works great. Hooked it up to my upfitters. Been a while, just like Wyo said it's with a group of wires that is blunt ended. Been a while so I can't remember...lol.

Re: Anyone done the High Idle Mod?

I just did this yesterday, really easy and glad I did. There are 2 different ways to achieve the high idle mod, just depends which better suites your needs. Anyways this is the best write up I found. I followed it to the tee, except I used a 3" wire and another butt connector (you'll understand after reading the write up). Check out the link

Re: Anyone done the High Idle Mod?

Found the wiring I needed and completed the mod over the weekend. The wire, that was supposed to be 2" above the OBDII plug, ended up being farther up and more toward the center of the dash. Only got lucky in noticing it. In any case, Hooked to a lit rocker (drilling into the dash hurt) and ground out. Works Perfectly! I love it! Truck takes half the time to warm to NOTs in the morning and will be great for winter and coolant flushes. Now.....Memorial day weekend, Time to tear the motor down and replace problematic components before they become (more) problematic. Thanks for the input guys!
