    This switch is required if you want to be able to control your AMP Power Steps. I think that is important because without it the steps deploy automatically. Most of the time that is fine but if for example you are parked close to a high curb you may not want them to deploy automatically and crash into it, or you may just want to deploy them for cleaning. The switch was easy to install, about an hour. The hardest part was finding a suitable spot on the dash and fishing the wires through the firewall, a bit tedious but not difficult. This was an new truck and the dealer installed the steps themselves but wanted $130 for the $40 switch and another $150 to install it as opposed to $35 on amazon. I''m rating it a poor value because it is little more than a switch and some wire with the plug ends attached and a couple small miscellaneous parts so even at $35 it''s ridiculously overpriced. Additionally with the power step kit running $1300 and up and this switch being such an integral part it should just be included with the steps instead of being monetized as an accessory.

    This override switch is a very overpriced accessory for the AMP Research Power Steps. It is basically a standard rocker switch, three lengths of 18 gauge wire, three butt connectors and a plug that connects this wiring to the control unit that is furnished with the Power Steps. By my estimate I could assemble the equivalent for less than $10. The control unit is already manufactured and built to accept this switch, and when considering the cost of the Power Step kit (on my truck it was $1500), including this $10 override capability as part of the standard package makes sense to me. It would also preclude having to run a second site of wires parallel to those already provided to power the steps, as the factory wiring harness could incorporate all of this wiring in one bundle.

    This override switch works but it chafes that AMP Research charges so much extra for a functionality that is already part of the control unit furnished with the Power Step kit.

    if it was included with the entire step kit, the wiring could be in the Amp wire harness going into the cab. Why not include the switch and charge $30+ in the entire kit. The owner can decide to install the switch or just let the wires be without the switch

    I purchase this for a 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited that I share with a much shorter person. They need to steps to get in and out, but I do not. I found that after you retract the steps, and then cycle the doors and 30 seconds, the controller resets back to normal no matter what position the switch is in.

    I contact AMP Research directly and they did reply within 24 hours, and stated that this how the switch and controller was designed.

    If you are using on a Jeep without doors it should work, but if you still are using the doors, the switch and controller are basically worthless. You can manually block the steps open or closed without this controller for loading or maintenance.

    I am very displeased this functionality especially for the cost of this option. Since I already have it installed and wired in, it would take me more to uninstall than it is worth.

    I had the PowerStep installed many years ago and after several years, the step would not work in hot weather. I bought this upgraded controller in August of 2019 and it worked fine for a few months and then it too, would not work in hot weather. I contacted Amp Research many times since then and have only gotten automated responses that a ticket is open and someone would get back to me. It is over 2 years later and I still cannot get help on this.
