    Has anyone posted pics of the OEM routing of the Y harness and pigtails? I'd rather not guess at this and want it to all look factory when done.

    When you plug the wires in, it's pretty easy to tell where all the push pins go

    So, does this only have full track or quiet mode? No in-between?

    If you have an 18+ it works like stock. The programming is there to operate the system, just needs to be turned on with Forscan, although the 19 seems to need additional programming.

    I have a '15, so I have nothing. Could a variable rheostat work?

    Is the additional programming something that can be done through forscan?

    It was on my 18, but there was a member here who had a 19 and it would not work with just the code change in forscan. he had to take it to the dealer to get it activated. Not sure if they changed something on the 19's that makes it more difficult to get the programming done.

    Damn, hoping to do that on my 19, but don’t think my dealer would be too interested in helping out here.

    Not as wired OEM. It is a digital signal and stepper motor. If not wiring up as OEM and enabling with Forscan, then go to Post#1 in this thread to see how to modify the actuator motors and wire to a switch and DC-DC converter.

    What is it that you asked for when requesting this harness? Is it the full body harness?

    I’m not sure. I have a ‘16 so I’m not really running these harnesses how an ‘18 would. But the y harness should get you to the main connection on the ‘18 I would say.
