i'm in the process of doing this to my 04 i figured out what most of the input wires are but i cannot figure out what the white/yellow wire should be hooked up to. heres what i have so far:

dark blue/lt green - anti theft indicator output
lt green/orange - battery saver output
red/orange - drivers side door unlock output (light blue in 04)
pink/black - drivers side door lock output
pink/orange - passenger door unlock output
white/yellow - ?

if somebody could tell me what the white/yellow should be hooked up to or if i'm wrong on any of the other wire's it'd help alot

thanks

the way you have the other done. like two drivers door outputs i would think it is the same for the passanger side.

so
white yellow goes to passenger door lock output

just a guess

04lvl2 would know for sure. he has it on his 04

White/yellow is hot at all times on a 2001~2003. You would need to pick up an equivalent "always hot" on the 04. One possibility is the orange/light green wire in the GRAY 32-pin connector at the Smart Junction Box.

Other than that it looks like you have it right. Minor correction - the PK/BK (or RD) wire is actually the common positive lock command to both door lock solenoids, not just the driver side.

Bob,

on your truck how did you tap into the CSM wires? or where? my manual says the CSM is in the dash on the passenger side.

did you find the wires in the main harness run?

I got a message from him this morning on that, remove the passenger airbag and glove box and its right there. The wiring can be picked up on the right and left side kick panels as well.

The 2001~2003 CSM is the white box on the upper left. The connectors and wiring are on the hidden side and can be accessed by removing the CSM mounting screws. This is where I tapped in the three LED lock indicator wires.

Alternate CSM wire locations: The PK/OR is in the PS kickpanel and the RD/OR is in the DS kick panel. The PK/BK is in both kick panels and either one can be used for the LED lock indicator. Of course, the wires are also in the respective front doors where they lead to the lock solenoids.
