I couldn't agree more. Such a small thing that would have added a nice touch.

Just got it to work. Like others have mentioned. Best mod around. If its not working at first, youre not getting a good enough connection inside the connectors. Really took some pressure on mine to get them to make a good connection.

On mine I used a 1.25" long piece of solid copper core telephone wire(the kindof wire like you run through your home from phone jack to phone jack) .. It is small diameter and solid single strand so it goes into the wire terminal recess easily..

Works great on my 2016 LT. Hardest part was finding a wire that was small enough and strong enough to stick in the connector. Thanks for the picture and description of where to find the BCM!

I have a 2015 also. Are the pin hole the same as in the picture provided in an earlier post? Upgraded to tow mirrors and would like the LEDs to come on in reverse. They only come on with cargo right now. Thanks so much.

I'll be attempting this on my 2017 today - Wife likes the reverse lights on the mirror's, forgets it's on, and parks truck at sale barn...

4 hours later...


Wife calls on way home, says the Voltage was low, but it's OK now...Gets home, parks truck, forgets it's on... We chit chat, and I go out to check the truck out...it looks like a Search party in the Driveway...Hmmmm, Honey.<we have a blond moment> Yes you do have to turn off the cargo lights when you park it, yes, I do know that is dumb, sure I understand, of course...I'll fix it dear.
