Kwikee® Steps

Kwikee® Steps

  • If your step is equipped with an override switch, turn it to the 'on' position. The step should remain in the extended position with the under-step light 'off' when the door is closed. With the override switch turned on, the step extended, and the entrance door closed, turn the vehicle ignition override system will go into effect and the step will automatically retract.
  • If the yellow wire from the four-way connector is not connected to an ignition power source, the ignition safely system will be inoperative and the step will remain in the extended position. In this case, the override switch must be turned off for the step to retract. Turn the vehicle ignition off and open the door. The step will extend and lock in the 'down' position. This is the 'Auto Extend' feature. When the vehicle ignition is turned on, the step will always activate with the door movement, regardless of the override switch position.

Older steps require the Electric Step Manual pg-875.pdf

It is probable there is an issue with the magnetic switch. Make sure the step is installed with a new black (normally open) switch.

To properly identify your step, measure the mounting bolt pattern front-to-back and side-to-side. Compare the measurements with the drawings on our Step ID Charts. Here are documents for pg-Step-ID-Chart-Single-v2.pdf, pg-Step-ID-Chart-Double-n.pdf, pg-Step-ID-Chart-Triple.pdf
