These switches apparently run on the simplex system so not sure what that means. I guess there is a jumper somewhere?

Hi my name is***** will be glad to help. Unless your truck was pre wired and programmed for optional output power from the optional switches, a Freightliner dealer will have to program the switch to work as this system is multiplexed where all switches and circuits are programmed through a SAM cab chassis module. It is not as easy as running a new circuit like things once were long ago. One wrong wiring mistake could damage a SAM module, etc. Let me know. We can follow up as needed.
