It's the bypass that's been in there since I purchased. I gave the part number earlier in the thread. I realize how it SHOULD work, I'm saying it's not for some reason, and I believe it's because it's attempting to crank instead of just powering on.

You can have it once I get a new one, eventually.

By what I understand, if any of the wires in the ring get damaged, it kills the unit. And those wires are fragile. Mine turns on the power, but doesn't crank. It chirps the code for bad/non-programmed bypass. I want to tear a few apart and see if I can scavenge a working one just for giggles.

Welp, new remote start was installed today. Pretty happy with it, too.

Compustar CS4102-S -- long transmission/receive range (that punches through brick walls) and a two way remote.

I got into an accident a little while ago. Someone blew their yield sign. Soooo... I had to go back and make a few changes to the truck in order to make it look even again, after it got out of the shop.

Well, I swapped out my old fog light housing for a new one so now both of them are new.

I got my replacement 32" curved and my smaller 9" light bars in so I sealed them up with some clear RTV. I also got waterproof connectors so I can easily remove them, and hopefully next time another shop does it they'll just disconnect at the connectors instead of cutting my wiring harness apart (which I have to remake).

I also got some replacement fog lights in the event my 9005s go out (I was able to save those)... these 9006s fit the housings just fine so long as you replace the O-ring with a slightly smaller one, make a solid seal, too.

I also swapped out my left and right air dams because the bottoms had split and they were just hanging there. Apparently that's pretty standard for these after a couple of years.

Now I just need to make a new harness and, hopefully, get the light bars mounted on the bar tomorrow. It's just so bleedin' cold out that it's difficult.

She's back and better than ever because now the plugs for the lights are extremely visible, very modular, and easy to connect and disconnect. And yes, the wires inside the truck are loomed too, I just didn't take a picture of them while loomed, it would have been anti-climactic.

Welp. Time to update again. I swapped out a 14" antenna for a proper OEM antenna, increasing my reception once again. It also has the intended effect that it no longer whistles when I drive.

I also took today and hooked up a
Pioneer AVHX3800BHS Pioneer AVHX3800BHS
. To do that I bought a
metra harness metra harness
for the entire bundle, a
metra harness metra harness
to keep the aux in my dash, a
metra aux/usb adapter metra aux/usb adapter
, an
RCA/3.5mm adapter RCA/3.5mm adapter
, a
3.5mm splitter 3.5mm splitter
, a
parking brake bypass parking brake bypass
, an
antenna cable adapter antenna cable adapter
, a
metra double din mount metra double din mount
, a
Metra Axxess ASWC-1 Metra Axxess ASWC-1
so I can keep my steering wheel controls and an
F150 tailgate handle with a 520 tv line camera F150 tailgate handle with a 520 tv line camera
.

I'm a double threat. OSU and FSU, Columbus Blue Jackets and Tampa Bay Lightning -- basically anyone who will play and defeat Miami (and the Gators).

So I've been reading this guy's offroad build over on the Tacoma forums and it's given me just a bunch of ideas.

This one didn't come from his thread, but I busted the little retaining clip that holds my floor mat in place on the driver's side, so now I've pulled the mats out on both sides and added
industrial velcro industrial velcro
to the bottoms of them. Seems to be working in holding it in place and was cheaper than buying new floor mats with grippers.

I just ordered a couple parts so I could make myself a dimmable red LED to have on in the dark, vs the really quite bright dome/map lights I have in the truck. So I ordered a
rheostat dimmer in a project box rheostat dimmer in a project box
that is really tiny, and a marine
three LED utility light three LED utility light
that isn't a flat bar but rather has them splayed out on a curve.

I also have the parts on order to extend the rear diff breather tube up to the filler pocket vs where it is on the frame crossmember (there's just a bunch of crap inside the crossmember). Just needed a bunch of
5/16" fuel line 5/16" fuel line
, a breather vent cap, and some
hose clamps hose clamps
. Also ordered the
rear diff barb rear diff barb
just in case I bust the one that's already on there. Always good to have a spare anyhow.

I also ordered and will be picking up a pressure washer today from home depot for washing the truck,
foam cannon foam cannon
on order with amazon.

And I will be adding some
theft deterrent bolts theft deterrent bolts
for the license plate holders since that seems to be a growing trend around here since we got multi-year registrations.

Finally, something that I did do was to add pulls to the headrests of the seats in the truck. Yes I already have handles for getting in and out of the truck but sometimes, for shorter folks, a headrest pull is better. They also help a lot during offroading as they're a second point of contact to grip. I sewed webbing to make pulls then wrapped black paracord in a cobra wrap, then olive paracord in a partial king cobra to thicken the gripping surface.

Truck still has old boots on it so I picked up some boots and springs, dielectric grease and battery terminal cleaner.

Going to ohm out the COPs, clean up the connectors, spray out the pits in the engine with compressed air, grease up the boots and replace them.
