Need help with parking light connection.
Everything I've seen says grey wire, pin 11 at headlight switch.
I've tried but doesn't work. Checked everything and all seems good. The only thing I can think of is that there is a bit of a delay when turning on the parking lights using the headlights switch and the avital sends a quick negative signal. No idea. I tried the using hazards and they work but unfortunately the hazards stay on after arming/disarming.

My recommendation is to use the (+)Parking Light wire. These is a bit of extra wiring required to use the
(-)Parking Light wire to prevent vehicle damage. Here is the info on the (+)Parking Light wire :
Parking Lamp (+)           BLUE/GREY            @ BCM* 36 PIN CONN, PIN 12
* Body Control Module (BCM) is located in the passenger kick panel.
Soldering is fun!

Thank you very much for the response.
Your solution gave me parking lights for the rear of the vehicle only.
Any idea for fronts?
Also, when exiting the vehicle the parking lights stay on for I think 20 seconds. So when arming the system I get no visual confirmation. Is there a way around that besides turning off the trucks autolight feature itselfor?
Thanks again

If you have a SPDT relay, you can do the Parking Lights this way. Leave the R/S set to (+) Parking Light output and wire the relay to the Headlight switch connector in the steering wheel as follows :
Relay Pin 87 to Gray wire at Pin 11 of Headlight switch
Relay Pin 86 to R/S (+) Parking Light output
Relay Pin 87a to Headlight switch side of cut wire at Pin 4 ( Black/Violet or Black/Blue wire )
Relay Pin 30 and Pin 85 to vehicle side of cut wire at Pin 4 ( Black/Violet or Black/Blue wire )
Here is a diagram to better illustrate this with the Headlight switch connector pin-out.
