AUX switches on my first Super Duty

Just curious as this is my first Super Duty, what do you have connected to your AUX switches?

The wires are terminated under the hood. Go online [or maybe even the owners manual?] to see which wire connect to which numbered switch. Connect your accessories power wire to it. Hook up a ground and enjoy your accessory! Its that simple! The relays are already in place.

One my switches initiates 2 wheel drive low range. Another powers my driving lights - when on, the lights are switched on via the high beams, when off, the driving lamp can't be turned on. The other four switches are waiting for an assignment.

I do not have my truck just yet, but I will be hooking up some auxiliary lights and probably enabling high idle for the diesel on one of the switches.

on my 2006 and 2011, the wires to the switches terminate inside the cab. There is also a second set of pass through wires going from the cab to the engine bay. Presume itís the same for the 2017ís.

no.. the 17's and up terminate the wires in the engine bay only. with a lot more wire available..
the fuses and relays for the switches are also moved to the engine bay.
all this is right by the hood hinge on the drivers side.


there are other wires provided on the passenger side, if you need outside back INTO the cab.

probably actually makes it easier to wire stuff up with one continuous wire going out to the engine. I guess if you want to hook something up inside the cab, you can just cut the wire.

yeh. the vast majority of additions are outside the cab..
moving the relays out from behind the dash to someplace you can get to them is a nice change, plus the wires are a lot longer then they used to be..

the wires to the upfitters themselves don't care any good level of power. they just toggle the relay.. (I always used the ground leg to trigger relays, so no power ran on the wire at all)..
I don't think they document where those wires go in the cab...

but you have power in the passenger footwell fusebox.. the PTO wire is on while running... (its NOT a passthru wire)

on the 12 i had it under the right side attached to the chassis..tank followed by the compressor

on the 18, with the power running boards, I am going to have to move the tank above the spare, like others have done.
