Default NEW PRODUCT: GMT-900 cargo light control!!

Hi everyone.

I havent been around the forums as much as I used to; been extremely busy with a couple new products, as well as improving/redesigning existing products.

One of the new little gadgets is the cargo light control module for the 2007.5-2014 GMT-900 pickup trucks.

Anyone with a 2007.5-2014 truck knows how obnoxious it is that GM stopped having a separate switch for the cargo light, compared to the GMT-800 trucks and new K2XX trucks, which have separate dedicated switches to turn the cargo light on and off.

There are tons of times when you want to check on something in the bed at night time, yet in order to turn the cargo light on, you have to turn the interior dome light on too...which makes it impossible to see anything in the bed because you are blinded by the dome light!!

There great features about this unique module are as follows:

1. Small (size of a golf ball, mount the little box under the dash)

2. Completely stealth (no extra ugly switches to mount on your dashboard)

3. Retains the factory battery-rundown protection feature (so if you turn the cargo light on and forget to turn it off, the module will automatically turn the cargo light off after ~10 minutes to prevent your battery from going dead)

4. Easy to install (just a couple wires to tap)

5. Has auxiliary outputs so you can wire up additional cargo lighting (LED bed-rail lights like the new K2XX trucks maybe???)


You are probably wondering how it works, considering there are no ugly aftermarket switches to mount or holes to drill in your dashboard... Simply press the factory dome-override button (on the headlight switch) 4 times within 5 seconds, and the cargo light turns on. Press the dome-override button 4 times again and the cargo light turns off.

I should have these ready to ship within 2 weeks. Havent figured on a final price yet, but they will be very reasonable, and I will run an introduction sale.

thanks
Ben

I was also thinking, another alternative to the "dome-override button press routine" to turn the cargo light on and off......I could also program the module to read the headlight knob. So you turn the headlight knob to the spring-loaded "off" position twice to turn the cargo light on, and turn it twice to the off position to turn the cargo light off.

But the problem with that is if you're driving at night, your headlights would flash off, then on. Which isnt a good idea obviously.

Which is why I thought the dome-override button was the most feasible method of actuating the module. Yes, if the door is open, and you do the button-press-routine, the dome lights will flash quickly, but I didnt think that would be a big deal.

You need to come up with a 4x4 indicator light for these trucks.

Like a little auxiliary LED that you mount on your dash that lights up when in 4wd?

Yes. There times I forget I have mine in 4wd or accidentally bump the switch. Would not think it would be to hard to come up with something.

I just wish the dome override button kept the interior light from coming on. That seemed logical.

I mean if it's pushed in to keep the light off then it should keep it off when you turn the knob for the interior/cargo light so just the cargo light comes on. Then push the button so the inside light can come on. I hate the new ford type setup where both come on. Your solution would work but it should have been as I described from the factory. Or like it used to be pre 07 that worked fine.
