Need help with amp steps

hey guys, getting to the wiring portion of the amp steps and the instructions that came with the steps i dont think have the right wiring diagram


anyone with the 2011 amp steps know which wires on the passenger side tap into the wires from the amp steps?

my directions say

yellow to yellow

dark green w/ stripe to same

dark green to same

white to white

i dont see a solid white wire and tapping into the two yellow solid wires i saw didnt work

any help would be great

thanks!

Re: Need help with amp steps

I just got done putting these on my 2008. If its the same as mine, the white wire is up in the flat wire loom towards the front. Then there are 2 yellow, tap into the one that goes to the back seat and not the one that goes under the front seat. Tug on it and you can tell. Make sure you have a good connection, I wasnt getting a good connection and I thought I was on the wrong wire, so I spent close to an hour trying to figure it out.

My directions called for a dark green wire, I didnt have any dark green wires in my truck.

Hope this helps.

Re: Need help with amp steps

My steps should be here by the end of the week, but the truck wont' be here for at least 2 weeks! I've wanted AMP steps for about 3 years now and a new truck was excuse enough to get them!

Re: Need help with amp steps

Well the white wire is eluding me. There is no flat loom in this truck and every white wire in that area has a colored stripe on it.

Re: Need help with amp steps

its on the passenger side, you have to remove the kick panel and it is right where the kick panel would be, the white wire was hiding in there but its in there.

basically just follow the wires up from where the others are tapped in

Re: Need help with amp steps

Thanks, I will dig deeper into that harness tomorrow. Every damn white wire I found so far has a colored stripe on it!
