I got an email from Beto01 explaining the wiring for the shift lock and key lock. I hope he doesnt mind me sharing this but looks like everyone needs some help with this. So here it is.
I am very sorry for not getting back to you guys any sooner but here is what you need to get you started for the shifter. You guys have to remove the shifter from the column if you haven't done so, there is a square electrical connector attached to it that you have to disconnect and these are the main wires that you need. I removed everything and left the column bear, my steering wheel still locks and works great. Have you guys installed your center console and the shifter onto the truck? have you attached the shifter cable to it? you should have done this by now and your truck should be able to shift gears precisely by just pressing down and manually pushing the shifter lock lever. In the pictures I sent you will see the original floor shifter harness, what I did was i took that harness and cut off the end and took the other harness from the column and used it by connecting the following wires together:
Take the white wire from the column harness and connect it to the red/white wire on the floor shifter harness
Take the gray wire from the column harness and connect it to the gray wire on the floor shifter harness
Take the blue wire from the column harness and connect it to the yellow/red wire on the floor shifter harness
Take the black wire from the column harness and connect it to the black wire on the floor shifter harness
These connections will allow you to shift the lever by unlocking the coil each time you step on the brake and will indicate the parking, neutral and drive (the one with the circle around it) on the guage cluster. I am having a hard time figuring the connection for the regular drive, this is when you push the lever to the left and activates the switch to take you out of overdrive. This is not critical since the truck is always best at the overdrive mode when your on the freeway and I am still having to figure out the wire for indicating the lower gears of course you can still use them by shifting to them but it wont indicate it on the guage until the wires are connected. I have not had a chance to figure these out but by just connecting these wire you are good to go, I will however send you an update once they are figured out.
For the illumination of the shifter cover just connect the red with strip wire to the same wire color for the stereo behind the face plate and the other wire to ground, this will allow it to light up at night when you turn on the lights. These two wires should be connected to a large brown connector, i just cut off the connector. Also take a look at picture 88, this is the connection for the power plug sockets on the back of the console. I used the connector from the center jump seat that was removed and attached it to the two bottom wires and just connected it to the factory connector on the floor. I KNOW I WROTE THIS PRETTY FAST BUT LET ME KNOW IF YOU DON,T UNDERSTAND SOMETHING.
Make sure you send him your thank you! I havent wired it up yet because I had to find the harness since my console didnt come with one. But Im am going to attemp to wire it tomorrow.
