Customer Question
Planning on putting a...

Planning on putting a console shift on my 2016 f 150 . Is there a separate harness that plugs into the column shifter harness that runs to the console harness . I am thinking the complete under dash harness is different

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the vehicle have a fuse that enables or disables the shifter?

I do not know . It is a base xl with sync

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '16 Ford?

F 150 xl with sync, locking rear end 2.7 ecobost

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

I have not tried anything I just want to know what I might be in for. I may just replace the shifter with bezel from ford that turns that hole into pocket and keep shifter where it is at. dealers can not find any anymore without vin. I may have to build a harness. for the shifter controls ,but I do not want to go to that extreme.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No , that is fine

Hello my name is ***** ***** wiring harness is completely different, you would need a harness from a truck with a console, the column you have now would need to be deleted to a column that is for floor shift, the best way is to find a wrecked unit and remove the parts from this donor vehicle, if not it will get real expensive, I would guess the column alone would be 4-5 hundred let alone the console shifter and shifter cable and wiring.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.
