      Has anyone installed on of these? Mine is a 2007 and the wire colors they list to tap do not even exist in any of the looms. I found a few posts online about the same issue and changing of wire colors but they were all in regards to newer F250s. I have tried to call them repeatedly and only get voicemail. Of course, no one calls back. Any help is appreciated.

      I finally got Tech on the phone. Very nice and sent me some information with different wire colors. I haven’t had a chance to give it a try.

      The wires you are looking for are found on the harness running along the passenger side B-Pillar, between the two doors. Colors are:

      Violet-Gray
      Gray-Brown

      I have included wiring diagram pics for your convenience.

      I do appreciate it. Only issue is a have 2 sets of wires with those colors. Any idea if they are the smaller or larger gauge wires of the pairs?

      Fairly sure they are tied together at the connector, so use the larger 16 gauge. Make sure to check with multimeter and your remote keyfob to doublecheck the signal either way.

      Copy that. I bought a computer safe circuit tester so should be easy enough now. Thanks again for the information.
