I started a thread regarding this. My 2000's CC pods didn't light up either, it was hit or miss on the Gen 4's apparently. There is a wire that you bridge and they'll light up.. lemme see if I can find it.

Edit- Here it is:

yes, the servo on my truck is from a 4.0 OHV, i think its a little more touchy when you press accel one time than a 3.0 servo would be but its just fine with me
