ford_doctor Or find someone who can do it for you... or ask your sealer to do it. I have done a few for customers/municipalities.

Read the instructions carefully. It is not a big deal to do. It looks complicated to do but it isn't.

larrgh There is no "plug 'n play" SEIC/Elevated Idle Controller like in the older Trucks. You will need to connect a resistor or a potentiometer into the PTO circuitry and a power source (normally one of the Upfitter switches) to get the idle up function.

Do I have this right????...on an f350,in park,cruise control buttons control idle speed....simple as that????...if so,why are guys using the upfitter switches??.
No, they do not. They do in a medium duty truck. That's an F-650 and an F-750. Anything up to an including and F-550 is a light duty truck.

I would love to know more about this----

DUNC I didn't expect it would be possible, but thought I would ask anyway.
Thank you for your response.

ford_doctor No. That idle controller will not work on your truck in any way shape or form. Place it on your desk and use it as a nostalgic paper weight.

There are many threads on elevated idle control using your upfitter switches if you have them.

FORD AUX AUXILIARY IDLE CONTROLLER APCM

I installed on my 2000 Excursion a FORD AUX AUXILIARY IDLE CONTROLLER APCM. I removed it when I sold it.

Can it be installed on my 2015 f250? Anybody Know how to splice it in ? Excursion required splicing into the twisted Data wires.

Thank you

Duncan
