New problem. (WARNING: This is an installation for professionals since connections go inside the cab. If I would have known it would take 2 days and super sore ribs...I would have paid the extra.)
That 4th door not working...I thought I tapped into a purple/yellow wire (actually purple-brownish/yellow--and upon closer inspection and moving a few wires around, there was another purple/yellow wire. Connected to it and it works.
During the install of A-R Power Steps, I disconnected the negative cable to attach the negative cable for the controller. Inside the cab, to get to the control module on the firewall to hook up the steps, I disconnected what look like a ground cable, but w/ some components wrapped up in foam--just so I could get to the module.
Now, things that aren't working/illuminated: inside lights, garage door opener, 2x4/4x4/all-wheel drive indicators, ventilated/heated seats via the button (but it will via the EVIC), lights stay on-while driving, dimmer won't work...probably a few more items.
I took the truck for a 30 min drive, and tried recycling it a few times in the driveway, and the compass finally came on.
I've put my tail btw my legs and called the dealer a little while ago. In addition to checking the electrical prob, I do have a small oil leak. So they can take care of that, too.
But, the silver lining...steps work great!
