    I have a 2006 F350, how would I go about wiring back up lights to the AUX switch? I tried to fool around with it but I am not that smart when it comes to eletronics.

    you have to manually wire the switches under the dashboard. Then on the engine compartment side there are 4 wires sticking through the firewall in a bundle. Just wire the lights to which ever wire you wired to the switch. the wires come plumbed, but not connected. I found some instructions online with plenty of details. I have my Strobes, reverse lights and the high-idle wired in on my AUX switches.

    What were you looking for? the AUX switches are only on the 2005+ Superduty's. and as far as I know you can't put a aux switch panel (factory anyways) into the dash of a pre 05.

    If you were asking about the high idle, I believe the 7.3L PSD's require a module of some sort to accomplish the same task. I came across it while searching for the H.I. for my 6.0 PSD.

    Get the White night back up lights and the 7 pin adapter.

    They can be installed in 5 minutes and really put out a lot of light.
