Great job buddy...beat me to it when I told you I was going to finish mine today.

It is really simple. Red wire from the factory harness for power and black for ground.

I thought about that location but decided against it. Too much movement. Plus the bare led leads are nearly touching the metal of ur shifter. I suppose you could tape it first.

BTW...I'm typing from a pc with no "o" key. hint hint. Putting the finishing touches on my setup.

ok heres what I did. One big thing about the pac is it has a very narrow beam to see the radio. Nearly needs to point directly at it.

You can say it!!! I visited modman...and I had already begun my modboy activities.

disagree... mine deck would pick it up from 180*.. meaning i could point it at both doors and it would still work

The texture and paint is a near perfect match. Can't wait to see the installed pics.

Does it keep programming if the battery is disconnected?
Yes, fortunately the unit DOES keep its commands if you disconnect power.

Mmmm not so sure on that one. I think it might have to do with length of time disconnected. I had started to program to test it out. Unhooked battery cable in the morning yesterday to do my steering wheel controls when I got home. Had to redo the first part of programming.

Hey Custom...you posted between Haro'* post and my reply back to him...the butt kissing wasn't for you...lol

Will put all my install pics HU/Harness and pac into my other thread soon as I can. Prolly tonight. The installed pics didn't come out too good in the dark. (I know..you said let it cure...lol...I couldn't after the next beer it just installed itself)
