FIRST OFF: I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE TO YOUR VEHICLE IF YOU TRY THIS!
okay, i got my parking pole from icbmotorsports, and i ordered the whole kit that included everything you need for an installation.
first, you need to get into a garage, because you will be spending a lot of time on the ground.
okay, now that you're in a comfy position, take off your grill and front bumper by taking out and unbolting all of the neccessary bolts & screws(not too many). You'll need a philip's head screw driver and a 10mm wrench.
when you have the bumper off, you will notice 2 holes on the left and right side beside the middle cut-out part in your bumper..... this is where the bracket that holds your system will go...these holes will need to be threaded, but i was in luck, because i had self-threading screws that were included in the package.
after you have the bracket mounted and the system mounted, drill your hole... YOU ONLY HAVE ONCE CHANCE, so don't mess up! it should look like this afterwards, and as you can see in the pic, i had the whole system on the bracket wrong and started to drill the hole before i realized that it wouldn't work(notice the rubber stopper i put there to cover it up). this is what it SHOULD look like.
now time for the good stuff!! the wiring harness that was included had ALMOST everything needed for setup; it was missing a ground for the pole. okay, as you will notice, on your driver's side in the engine bay, there is a blocked off hole in the firewall; this is where you will run your wires through.
the wires will come out on the other side right under the in-dash fuses... like so.
and this is roughly where the plugs go inside the fuse box, they go above the fuses in the optional plugs.. sorry for the quality.. i was cramped!
after that, i ran the wires up under the dash and through my console. i grounded the wires near one of the bolts to the shift linkages. it doesn't really matter where you put the ground, as long as it's on something metal. i then ran the wires to the button up under the dash and pooped out one of the thingys that blockoff the 4 holes around your parking brake.
after i had that done, i just used the zip-ties and cleaned it up and made sure no wires were showing, and i zip-tied it to my engine's wiring harness throughout the bay so it wouldn't be in the way of anything. this is where i made the plug come out:
when you ground the pole itself, make sure that you do it to where it won't move anywhere or come off while you're driving. after you do that, make sure the system is working and put EVERYTHING back the way you took it off. I know, i know, i didnt put my grill back; i'm getting it painted so get off my back.
on a difficultiness scale.. on a 1 to 10, i woud rate this about a 3. i mean, i had no idea what i was doing when i started, but i got the hang of it as i went through, and i'm only 15. If you know what you're talking about when it comes to wiring, then it should be a 1. it just takes some time, you have to be careful and pay attention.
and here's the finished product:
i know it's not the best how to, but i'm one of the pioneers in this, so bear with me.
thank you for your time.
