    At one point it had a no start issue and it turned out to be that it wasnít completely in park.
    I only stated that to point out that it wonít crank without being in park. Sorry for the confusion.

    So US Shift sold us their wiring harness and the book that came with it shows where to run all of the wires. I have those installed. None go back to the PCM though.

    On the truck side of it I donít know what wire needs to be triggered nor what the voltage needs to be to trick the truck into cranking.

    Hope that makes better sense.

    I think I have it figured out. Itís actually in the US Shift book. I just didnít quite understand it correctly. Now that i found a stock diagram it makes sense to me.

    Yeah the directions turned my head in to a pretzel. Same with the backup lights. I did what some others here recommended and de-pinned the trans connector and popped in the two wires needed for the Quick 4. The rest of the wires stayed in place so everything else worked OK.

I'm getting there, but things are getting a little ridiculous. It doesn't help that I can only find about one 3-4 hour block of time per week to work on it, but I still thought this would go much more quickly. Famous last words.
    Weíll to be fair this is just a small side project. My main project is sitting beside it and Iím itching to get back to it! So thatís my motivation!

    For me, those 3-4 hr blocks of time with a week in between are very inefficient. It takes me a while to wrap my head back around where I was at and what needs to be done. Then itís time to clean up and put tools away.

    My main project is going on a year now and I want to get it done, so I know the feeling. Mission creep and falling off a slippery slope.

    The cutoff for me where it isn't worth messing with is usually about 2 hours unless I've got a few small tasks I can knock out quickly and not have to leave half done. I also had to add an electric fuel pump to the car, which was a few hours of time I wasn't planning on. In retrospect I should have skipped the Holley fuel pump kit and used an in tank set up. Would have been cheaper and cleaner, but I didn't find an in tank I liked until the deed was done. The only place I could put the CTS was in the intake and that required a new thermostat housing. I built a new set of plug wires to avoid EMI. Replaced the blower motor which requires removing the inner fender, so I did heater hoses too. Changed the brake master cylinder. It's just been one thing after another. An hour here and an hour there turns into seeks pretty quickly. I think I'm finally on the downhill side and all I have left is wiring, which I hate.
