2005-2007 Ford Super Duty Upfitter Switches:
The Ford Upfitter Switches are optional instrument panel mount switches (Option Code 66S) that control passenger-side mounted relays. These relays power four blunt cut wires that can be found beneath the steering column and behind the passenger compartment fuse panel also called the Central Junction Box (CJB). The wires are part of the harness connected to the “K” connector (C270K) on the back of the CJB. The four wires are as follows:
|Aux 1||1936||Orange/Light Green||30 Amp|
|Aux 2||1933||Orange||30 Amp|
|Aux 3||1934||Orange/Yellow||10 Amp|
|Aux 4||1935||Orange/Light Blue||10 Amp|
The Upfitter Switches are operational when the ignition key is in the run position. The Upfitter Switches cannot be utilized in any other operational mode. The power to the switches is relay controlled and was designed to operate in the “run” mode to reduce the possibility of draining the battery(ies).
