Re: how to- tq lock up switch

I didn't find anything about it on swamps site. It seems pretty easy from DI's instructions.

Has anyone ever used a 3 way switch instead of a 2 way? I was thinking it would be nice to be able to fully lock it, unlocked so the tuning takes over, and fully unlocked to completely overide the tuning. I've never seen them done this way, but it would seem beneficial. I have talked with a few people that would like a 3 way switch, but no one is sure how to do it. ANy inout would be great.

Yes it can be done but the question is why?

Why would you want it to never lock?

I don't really feel like working that hard this morning and drawing up a diagram for something that makes no since as to why you would want to do it.

WHY do you want to be able to have the TC unlocked all the time? It just makes no since at all. All that does is heat up your tranny having it unlocked.

Now if you want my diagram for the regular TC lockup switch I can post that.

You would have to completely cut the wire, then wire it to never ground somehow.....
