Have a 2018 f250...

Have a 2018 f250 with 6 uplift switches. Located the 6 lines at the fuse box for each swt. incab passenger side found 4 wires(through wire?). Can not find the other end of the pass through wires under the hood. Please advise location. Also, are there wires directly from the pass through witches inside the cab I can connect to directly without going through the pass through wires?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the manual yet? Most vehicles have two fuse panels.

Yes, manual is not clear on how to set up or connect loads. This has to be simple.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F250 yourself? What have you tried so far?

All I have done is try to locate the wiring. Once I have the locations and the functions, i can take it from there.

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

My questions should be simple. 1. Where does the pass thru wires come out under the hood? 2. Do I have to use the pass through wires only to connect the load inside the cab (Power rear view mirror example) to the swts. 3. Are there are direct lines for an inside load for the up swts , where are they located?

Hello my name is ***** ***** you just trying to access the switches only or do you need PTO? Have you located the 6 wires?

Ask Your Own Ford Question

T​he 6 wires for the upfitter switches can be hooked up at the blunt cut wiring ends if you have found them, they are all circuit protected.

Ask Your Own Ford Question

T​hey should be left hand A pillar area by my wiring diagram. You can just use these, these are from the switches, you shouldn't need a pass through wiring.

Ask Your Own Ford Question

T​he pass through are by RH kick panel and there are 4 of them and the other end is under the hood in the RH rear engine compartment.
