Cant get Torque Conv. Lockup to Work?!

Hey guys, I have done exactly what everyone says and shows to do to make a torque converter lockup on my 2000 and it doesnt work?!! Whats causing it not to work? I t'd into the purple wire with yellow tracer and ran it to a toggle switch then made a short wire that i grounded to a bar under the fuse panel in the cab and ran it to the switch also. Still doesnt work. Any ideas?

make sure that you have a good ground and that the connections are good all the way out to the purple wire. I had the same problem when i hooked mine up and found out that my brand new switch was bad.

does the torque converter lock as when the computer instructs it to as normal?

or is it that your lockup switch is just not working?
