Using Ford RPM controller while in drive?

Does anyone know how to fix the ford rpm controller so it works in drive? This is in an 2000 F-550 PSD.

Thanks,
Dan.

Why would you want to do this?? :shrug: Im sure youve got a reason and its probably makes sense.. :Thumbup:
Anyway, You would have to fool it by thinking that the parking break was on or that it was in park depending on whether or not you have an Auto or manual tranny.
Or you could just get a chip with the high idle setting and use it. The High Idle setting can be programmed for whatever RPM you want by the chip dealer such as TSPerformance.com or by contacting me and Ill get you set up.. :thanks: Hope this helps...John

IF IT AINT SMOKIN' IT MUST BE BROKEN!!

Yeah I have a good reason lol. The truck is an xl spray truck w/ the 4R100. It would be nice to be able to set the rpm control and just cruise across the field. The spraying is done in low range, first gear. I need to make the rpm control work in drive for my dad, because he does all of the spraying.

Thanks for any and all help,
-Dan.

Is the truck a Four Wheel Drive? I know my '97 and '04 both creep when in Four Low. If you have manual lock outs you put in four low and unlock the hubs and creep right along. It can be in four low if you need it as well. Just a thought. Chris

I'm a little more country than that...

yeah, upstate, isn't it great to have 2wd low?

I think, that if you could devise a switching arrangement that bypasses the parking brake, and "park switch"?, then it would work. However, the computer still may go "dubbaya tee eff" if the transmission is still in drive, and the parking brake is set, and the truck is moving, and the automagic trans. is saying it's in park, but yet it's in drive, and the truck is driving.

IMO i can see some problems, but i might be wrong about the above^, and it might work beautifully.


The other option, would be to tap into the go pedal, a set position switch (resistor?) that would raise the rpm to a set amount.
