Warm up your Power Stroke engine faster on cold mornings with BD's High Idle Kit for 2005-2016 Ford 6.0L, 6.4L or 6.7L trucks. Quick and easy install, the High Idle switch mounts on the dashboard and taps onto five wires under the dash. Rotating switch allows for adjustable high idle speed between 1200rpm-2400rpm on 2003-2010 vehicles, and, 900rpm-3000rpm on 2011-2016. Great to use for remote starters, PTO's and extended idling applications.

  • Easy to install
  • Faster engine warm-ups
  • Adjustable


  • Can this rotary switch replace the factory one located near the right knee area?

    This kit can be used in conjunction with the factory upfitter switches available on some Ford Power Stroke pickups. FORD (POWERSTROKE) HIGH IDLE KIT install.

  • Does this void my warranty on my 16 f250? I also read the installation manual and I seen that it does not have wiring identification for a 16 truck. Is it the same as a 14?

    Voiding the warranty would be up to your dealership.














     YL/OR (Some mid-year 2011s)


















     *On trucks with factory remote start, install the yellow wire & the red wire from the BD high idle kit to the WT/BR wire on the factory harness. This is because the ignition circuit is not powered when remote started. The WHITE/BLUE wire will not be used.

  • Hi, so I have a 2012. 350 6.7 power stroke. I know this kit is an easy install however I was wondering if there are videos or instructions as to what the 5 wires go to. The only other question I had was how much cutting and splicing needs to be done. If you could kindly send me an email back regarding my questions I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks again for your time
