    got excited working in a heated garage and next thing you know...
    cleaned up my switch install by replacing/relocating some of the OEM switches and consolidating the OTRATTW switches (and getting a little aggressive with the utility knife...):
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    added usb ports/12v socket to rear of center console:
    [​IMG]

    added usb ports/voltage display to interior of center console:
    [​IMG]

    added a RAM mount to the side of the trim adjacent to the fan control:
    [​IMG]

    used this $12.49 part from Amazon along with a stainless M8 button head cap screw (forgot the length) and a nylock nut on the back side of the plastic trim piece (when installed and tightened, it's solid and doesn't move/rotate, obviously could be snapped if you really grabbed it, but no way if you are any type of normal...

    just be careful where you drill... the first hole that I drilled was too close to the climate control module and when the RAM mount was installed, there wasn't enough clearance to reinstall the climate control module...

    overall a great evening in the heated garage :)

    I mounted a ram ball in that black corner right above where your 4 wheel drive switch is. It has worked great so far.

    Very clean setup! Im assuming that manual trans dont have the downhill assist? If I had a spare slot in that cluster I would mount my ML-ACR switch in the same exact place as you did. Currently still figuring out where I want it..

    Also, what dual battery monitor is that? I like how compact it is.

    Directly from the owners manual:
    Maintenance required reminder light Indicates that maintenance is required according to the driven distance on the maintenance schedule.*2

    Illuminates for about 3 seconds and then flashes for about 15 seconds approximately 4500 miles (7200 km) after the maintenance data has been reset.

    Comes on and remains on if the distance driven exceeds 5000 miles (8000 km) after the maintenance data has been reset. (The indicator will not work properly unless the maintenance data has been reset.)


    I was at almost 6k miles and no flashing at all. The only thing I can think of is the truck was sent to Canada for a period of ownership. Maybe the light is waiting for the counter to hit the KM readings of 7200k and 8k? Everything on the truck has been switched back to miles instead of kilometers.

    Is your light burn out / did a previews owner tape over it?

    No because it came on the first couple of oil changes after I bought it, I also edited my previous post to include this:

    That sucks! I was wishful that you found one without issues. I've looked at quite a few of them, but I always see reviews about connectivity issues unless your on WIFI. And whats the point of having it, if I cannot get real time data when I am driving?

    Nothing but the best for Betty. :) LoL

    Really though, its pretty standard tolerance for a laser. We hold +0.003/-0.000 all day for PEM hardware insertion holes.

    haha no offense, but I dont think you answered the question. You taken the dash apart to verify theres no tape over the light? Also, just because the light did work at one time, doesnt mean that its not currently burnt out.. again, not trying to be a dink, just saying. Sounds like they might have done something to it while it was in Canada.

    Mine is usually around 6.5k flash and 7k solid. It's been like that since the first time I seen it. I use trip b for oil changes.
