Auto stick conversion

OKAY, im trying to convert my 2003 sxt to autostick. i thought in 2003 they SXT was reintroduced into autostick from the factory. mine is the regular set up. but anyway i have already purchased the 300m special dash upper and lower harness and the front door harness for the turn signal conversion. but yet to aquire the turn signal mirrors. but anyway. i plan on doing the ATC AND TURN SIGNAL MIRROR CONVERSION . along withe the autostick conversion., but this is my dalemia i want to know can i take out of a 2002 - 2004 dodge intrepid es the autostick lower body harness and autostick part ( shifter piece ) and the dash cluster and pair it up with my 300m special harness with no problem. and if not what else do i need for this conversion to work. any other parts i did not mention at all. please let me know. i already looked up the how tos and search,but couldnt find anything to just plug and play format.

The SXT never had Autostick.

You'll need to add the specific wiring for the Autostick along with an appropriate shifter and a Cluster from an Autostick car.


And as a side note there will be no wiring for heated/memory/turn signal mirrors in any year Intrepid. You'll need to add that wiring on the chassis side. Your best bet there would be to swap out the chassis wiring harness from a 300m Special. Having the door and dash wiring harness won't get you the memory seat/mirror functions. Good Luck

You have 4 wires - no more, no less - to be concerned with for the A/S: A power (Red/White), a ground (Black), an upshift wire (Light Green/Red), and a downshift (Yellow/Light Blue) wire.

Simplest way to grab power is to tap the Red/White wire of the DLC (Data Link Connector) - easier than adding a terminal to the connector in the BCM that the How-To's talk about.

For ground - put a ring terminal on that wire and attach it to one of the two ground studs just above the lower edge of the console plastic to the right of your ankle when your foot is on the gas pedal.

The upshift (Light Green/Red) and downshift (Yellow/Light Blue) wires should be tapped to the correct wires on C106 (located on the cluster of connectors to the left of the brake pedal - the left top connector above the blue connector, 10 pins) - Light Green/Red (up shift) and Yellow (down shift). Those two wires are adjacent to each other - the Light Green/Red one is on the last pin of one of the rows, and the Yellow is immediately adjacent to it.

I suggest you remove the single screw (10mm hex head - might be 8mm, but I think 10) attaching the panel of connectors to a bracket to work with C106, then re-attach when done. You won't have much length of wires to work with - just carefully work with those wires (unwrap some harness tape, etc.) to pull a little slack in them for a service loop to splice to. Tight, but do-able.

On some years, the up and down shift wires were not run to C106 from the PCM on cars that didn't come from the factory with A/S, so you would have to run your own wires from the PCM If that's the case, you might just as well bypass C106 and make a direct run from the PCM (under the hood) to the shifter A/S module.

I'm assuming that the wires that would go from C106 to the shifter A/S module are not in your car - that too may vary by year for cars without A/S. But if they are there, the wire that is yellow on one side (PCM side) of C106 will be Yellow/Light Blue on the other side (shifter side). Just be careful not to grab the Yellow/*DARK* Blue wire that is also on C106. Sometimes dark blue and light blue can be almost indistinguishable on these wires. If it's the one immediately adjacent to the Light Green/Red wire, you know that's the correct one.

You have an FSM? You really should have one if only for section 8W that contains the schematics, connector pinouts, and other essential wiring info.

Oh - also - hopefully not insulting you if you already know this stuff, but either make soldered connections, or use *RED* T-taps. Blue T-taps are for larger wires and will make very unreliable connections on these smaller wires. Red (T-taps or other tapping devices) only if that's what you use to splice.

+1 This is the advice I applied when installing my Autostick.

My advice is to ensure all connections are perfect.

If you have the harness from a 300M Special, you won't have to splice anyting, it will already be there

So, how much of a pain in the ass is it to swap out wiring harnessess? I want autostick, but I don't do so well when it comes to splicing and wiring and such lol
