This article will explain the process of getting your Ford switch installed on your truck.

4. Use a coat hanger or extra piece of wire to feed into the cab of the truck from the engine bay through the same hole the hood release cable is fed through.

5. Inside the cab, locate the coat hanger/wire and tape switch wire ends to the end of your hanger/wire.

6. Pull the hanger/wire into the engine bay with the switch wires connected.

7. Untape the switch wires from the hanger/wire.

8. Using the supplied connector, pin switch wires into the connector.  The single brown wire goes       to the female connector, on the outside edge open pin position.  The split wire will go to the             male and female connector. One end will go to the female connector in the middle open pin           position, the other will go to the male connector, with the yellow lock facing up, the pin will go       into the center open pin position. Once the male side of the supplied connector has been                 pinned, slide the blue lock mechanism over in order to lock pins into the connector.


9. Once the switch has been pinned to the supplied connector, disconnect the factory harness            from the fuel temp/pressure sensor.

10. Plug one end of the switch connector into the factory fuel temp/pressure sensor and then                plug the factory harness into the other end of the switch connector.

12. Put a small slit in the hood release grommet for the wires to run through and then reinstall the hood release grommet.

13. Find a spot inside the cab to mount your switch.
