Despite the weather I installed my steps!
The hardware is complete, but I only have the wires on with wire nuts to test the setup but everything works as I hoped.
I hooked it into my version of the dash fluid sensor module with the warning chime for lights on, steps down or door open with the ignition on and it all works!
I also added a lighted 3 position switch in place of the one that came with the steps.
This allows me to do the normal method of keep the steps down with the door open or closed, or allow the steps to retract every time the door closes. The LED's in the switch are only lit when the steps are not up.
The center position turns off power to the steps in whatever position they are in. I wanted this for maintenance safety while working underneath near the steps and sometimes I like to sit in the doorway with the steps retracted.
I will do pictures and diagrams some time later. My back told me it was time for a break
