When I bought them for my 2017 about 18 months ago, I recall that there was some discussion with AMP about the wiring in the new model year being different and they hadn't modified the OBDII set up yet to support the changes. Don't quite remember if it was the 2017 or the 2018 model year.

@greekfreek has a 2016 per his signature line and has had his steps for three years so this info may be dated? Suggest you call AMP and talk to them about it. Regardless, I am happy with the non OBDII hook up version.

So my info was based on my conversation with them in 2016.. To clarify the statement was "it does not work well" ...."the Tundra OBD ll mounting bracket would need some alterations to make it work" . Sorry if I misled anyone.. It would be good if anyone had input on installing the OBD harness . Thanks

So now I have another issue with my steps. The drivers side motor just keeps on clicking every 15 seconds or so, with no movement on the steps. I was by my truck and happened to hear it. Not working on drivers side with doors... Passenger side works OK. I wired the motor directly and it works out and in OK.. Directly grounded the Purple wire nothing...Will call them when I get a chance and post what I find... Ugh...

So were they working and stopped or did they never work from the get-go?

They had been working great until a few months back I had a broken drivers side door switch wire in the Amp harness that I repaired. Now the drivers side motor "clicks" every 15 seconds or so. Grounded purple wire for door switch and nothing, so I disconnected the module and powered the orange and white wires and the motor works fine, so maybe the module is bad..calling tech support today..

Let us know what you figured out. How did the wire break in the harness? Manufacturing defect or fatigue or ?

Wire broke in the harness, don't know where, wasn't going to remove the harness to find it, so I just bypassed it..

I have had no issues with the OBD splitter. I have my BD on one end and the steps to the other. Look around i got autoanything to price match the whole kit I found for way cheaper. The invoice does not show that I also go the manual switch for free.

Contacted Amp Step, since still under warranty, they sent me a control module which took care of the problem. Have to say every time I call them I'm able to talk to a tech easily and are helpful.. A1 service..
