Power lock mod complete

Just put in the last pieces today. Got the parking lights wired into the module (DLR4)... they flash when locking and unlocking the doors, but not when I hit the parking light button on the remote

The last piece was the lock/unlock button. I couldn't find any ranger door handles with the power lock/window buttons, so I bought one from a1electric. Didn't have much use for the garage-door opener port on the OHC, so that's where the switch went...





I had to mod the switch to use a green LED, as the yellow bulb that came with it just didn't match the lighting in my truck. Looks pretty good and works perfectly. Just one large gash where the exacto-knife slipped .

Well I was too cheap to buy two ($25 a pop for a switch!), and I want to put my dome light kill switch on the OHC... so it seemed like a good place to start accumulating buttons that didn't quite fit anywhere else. That, and looking at the door panels I didn't see room enough for this plus a window switch down the road... gonna keep those on the doors.
