    I'm installing the Pop&Lock PL8525 tailgate actuator.

    There are a lot of wiring harnesses in and near the tailgate. Wondering if anyone's found one to tap into that's constant. I'd like to avoid running the PL power cable all the way up front i possible.

    Anyone know of a constant power source near the tailgate to tap into?

    Thanks!

    The actuator needs power from the door lock/unlock in order to function properly. DC flow changes direction from lock to unlock. Are you adding a tailgate lock/unlock switch?

    you need to tap into 2 wires behind drivers side kick panel and run wires to tail gate.

    Ok, thanks. And cool, any non-driver door makes sense for 2nd button fob.

    Was hoping there was an unused source in/near the tailgate for an option I didn’t buy. That was the case for the backup camera I added a few years ago. There was a harness just sitting there ready to go.

    You could ask @KTJO 4x4 to make you a T harness so you don't cut the OEM wires.
