Are you wanting to tie it in with the power door locks?

Ok, here's the deal. Your door lock actuators aren't powered from the IPM but rather the instrument cluster and they are activated by the switch, by way of a MUX circuit, so you can't tie in directly from the switch either. You'll have to get into the cluster wiring for either the right or left side door lock actuators and splice in there.

That's a great idea, now you just need a powered tailgate to go with it!

apparently i cant read wiring diagrams. i am trying to wire a pop and lock power tailgate lock and i think i have tapped into one incorrect wire. only the lock function works, not the unlock. i have a 2008 ram 1500 quad cab. what are the 2 colors i should tap into? (right now im in solid green and tan with 2 green stripes - per the instructions)
