Re: Locker Bypass Rebirth

Previously I said that a disable toggle switch would be mounted on the control box, but that seems pretty inconvenient in a society that caters to convenience. So I'll be offering some options as I build each unit, depending on if you want: A standard unit with no disable switch A generic toggle swi...

Re: 4WD shift light comes on while driving

The OP on this thread said his was resolved by replacing the transfer case position sensor.

I have an extra one that I purchased for testing purposes listed in the classified section, if you're interested and don't have a warranty.

Re: Another Government Wagon Auction

The auction closed at $27,599 which is right at low KBB for a private party purchase and well below the price of a dealer purchase.
Congratulations to whoever the winner was! :patriot:

Did you pay online before you picked up or at the time of pick up? Before the auction ended were you able t...

The 3rd Gen prototype is finished, adjusted and tested! It works perfectly! I ran out of time for writing the installation instructions, so I’ll be working on that the next couple of evenings after work.

Re: Locker Bypass Rebirth

Disable switch installed on the 3rd Gen control box. I didn’t like the way the electronics were backfeeding through the circuits trying to find the ground when I disconnected the ground wire, so scrap that idea. This way works much better, It kills the power to the relay boards, all self contained i...

Re: Locker Bypass Rebirth

It's been a long day.

3rd Gen LB - 3.jpg
A little different layout internally.

3rd Gen LB - 2.jpg
Comparing the new, smaller 3rd Gen. control box on the left to the original 4th Gen. control box on the right.

3rd Gen LB - 4.jpg
The first ever 3rd Gen. control box and T-harness.

3rd Gen LB - 1.jpg
A little shorter to fit under the dashboard better

Tomorrow, finish the harness, test install, write new installation instructions, box it up and ship it out.
This one has your name on it Lancer29.

Re: Locker Bypass Rebirth

Quick few questions on these units... So this setup essentially bypasses the brains in the smart bar, correct? Using this setup should essentially make it much quicker for the lockers to lock/unlock, correct? When in 4-low with this setup, it still by-passes all the brains in the smartbar, correct?...
