Welcome
Thank you for purchasing the BD Torq/UnLoc Kit. This manual is to assist you with
your installation and operation of the unit. We strongly suggest that you retain this
manual for any future reference.
NOTE: For trucks with a Jacobs E-Brake system for the Dodge ISB 24 valve
application and all US Gear D-Celerators, the brake cannot be hooked up to the
module. Follow the instructions that are for “Without Exhaust Brake”.
The BD Torq/UnLoc Advantage
Currently, exhaust brake usage can cause high temperatures in the automatic
transmission due to torque converter slippage, and, only 10% to 80% of the retarding
force is transferred through the fluid coupling of most torque converters.
The BD Torq/UnLoc commands the lock-up clutch of the torque converter to stay
engaged when the BD Exhaust Brake is activated. This allows for up to 100% of the
retarding force to be transferred in 3rd and 4th gear and the transmission oil
temperature to remain low because of little to no slippage occurring when the converter
is in these selected gears.
The BD Torq/UnLoc is also able to prevent the ECM from activating the lock-up clutch
when such an action would drag the engine rpm out of the optimum torque range, or,
when traveling at such speeds that would cause the ECM to cycle the lock-up clutch in
and out.
Operating The BD Torq/UnLoc
The Torq/UnLoc works off of a lighted 3-position toggle switch that will only take effect
when the vehicle is above a set speed (approximately 25mph to 30mph) and the
torque converter lock-up clutch is engaged. The lock-up clutch usually engages when
the vehicle is cruising with little throttle action. (The manual unlocking of the clutch
can be activated at any time.)
On most vehicles, the lock-up clutch can be manually engaged by applying pressure to
the accelerator pedal until lock-up engages, then lifting the foot off of the accelerator.
Accelerator pedal pressure is also required after shifting out of or into overdrive to reengage the lock-up. The Torq/UnLoc is programmed to disengage the lock-up clutch
once the vehicle’s speed drops below a set speed.

When the 3-Position toggle switch is in the Up (Red Light) position, it will manually
keep the converter lock-up clutch engaged. This is referred to the TorqLoc mode.
The Middle (White Light) position is the off/neutral position and if a compatible
exhaust brake is hooked up to the system, the module will keep the lock-up engaged
when the exhaust brake valve is activated (brake switch turned on and accelerator
pedal at idle position). This is referred to the Stock/AutoLoc mode.
In the Down (Green Light) position, the converter lock-up clutch will be prevented
from locking up. This is referred to the UnLoc mode.
For proper operation of the Dodge transmission, the lock-up clutch must be
disengaged before the transmission will shift out of overdrive and into 3rd gear.
The Torq/UnLoc module compensates for this by disengaging the lock-up clutch when
the O/D OFF (Overdrive Off) button is activated to turn the overdrive off while in the
TorqLoc or Stock/AutoLoc modes. To reactivate the lock-up, apply pressure to the
accelerator pedal until lock-up engages, then lift your foot off of the accelerator pedal.
In addition, with Dodge trucks, to prevent excess slippage with the lock-up clutch, the
turbo boost pressure should be equal to or less than 1psi for every 100 engine rpm
(example: 18psi or less at 1800rpm) when the engine rpm is below 1800rpm.
The transmission should be shifted out of overdrive if speed drops below 40 mph. If
not, there could be transmission shudder as the vehicle’s speed decreases until it
reaches the set speed that the Torq/UnLoc unit will disengage lock-up.
With Dodge trucks, the module has an Overdrive inverter option that will disengage the
overdrive when the truck starts to move after being started up.
This will prevent possible transmission shudder on trucks with raised horsepower and
will allow for the transmission to lock-up the converter clutch in third gear before
reaching overdrive when starting to up-shift from a dead stop, allowing cooler fluid
temperatures when driving at “city” speeds.
This is an option and does not need to be connected for proper operation of the
Torq/UnLoc module. (Ignore all references to the “Inverter” if this option is not
desired)

Transmission Quirks
Some Dodge trucks built between the production dates of 09/95 to 04/96 have had
ECM programming for transmission control that has caused some lock-up control
problems and/or will cause the Torq/UnLoc not to operate correctly. If this occurs, the
computer can be "re-flashed" to current specs at most Dodge dealerships. Labor
charges of approximately 30 minutes may apply.
Some Dodge trucks that are 1999-2002 model years and are of California
specifications may require the transmission relay to be re-installed back into its socket.
This relay would have been removed in the "1996-2002 Dodge ‘TRANS’ Relay Bypass"
section of this manual.
Other items installed that may affect the operation of the transmission may have an
effect on the operation of the Torq/UnLoc (i.e. auxiliary transmissions). Please make
this known when contacting the BD Technical Service Department.
Compatibility With Other Exhaust Brakes
Most of the provided diagrams, instructions, and parts relate to the installation and
operation of this unit in conjunction with any BD Exhaust Brake.
In this manual, we have provided some diagrams and additional instructions for other
systems that we have had access to their diagrams. An installation in conjunction with
any other system should only be done with instruction from one of our BD Technicians,
with wiring diagrams and/or schematics provided to them. Additional lead-time, parts
and/or labor may be required.
For Jacobs E-Brakes installed on Dodge trucks with the 24 valve ISB engines and all
US Gear D-Celerator applications, ignore hooking up the Torq/UnLoc to the brake
wiring and follow the wiring instructions as if there was no exhaust brake installed.
NOTE for PacBrake exhaust brakes only: If the truck has a 24 Valve engine or is a
6BTA engine with 60 lb springs, remove the PacBrake valve and drill out the pressure
relief hole from 9/23” to 31/64”. This step is NOT required for the 24 valve engines or
newer models.

Adjusting For Application
Before installing, open the box up by removing two screws on bottom of module. On
the opposite end of the circuit board from the terminals, there is selection of 8
dipswitches.
These dipswitches control the speed that the Torq/UnLoc module will disconnect the
lock-up clutch. We have provided settings for the module to disconnect the lock-up at
approximately 25mph to 30mph. If you find that the set speed is too high or low for the
vehicle, phone our technical service department for alternative settings.
NOTE: To ensure proper function of the dip-switches, flip each dip-switch back and
forth once before setting them, even if the dip-switches are already set for the
application that it’s being installed on.
The “LED” (Light Emitting Diode) on the circuit board will show a Red light when the
vehicle has surpassed the set speed and the toggle switch is in the Up/Red-light
position, or, when the exhaust brake is activated and the toggle switch is in the
Middle/White-light position. Once the unit is installed, test drive the vehicle to make
sure the light comes on at the set speed.

This connection is not used in the Torq/UnLoc kit.
Testing with an Exhaust Brake
With the module pulled out enough to be easily visible while driving, take the vehicle
for a drive. Turn the toggle switch to the Up (Red Light) position and first check that
the LED light comes on once the vehicle has surpassed the set speed. If the LED fails
to illuminate after the set speed, check the dip-switch settings, the VSS wire color and
the connection to that wire. Also check that the wire is on the correct terminal at the
module, and make sure there is a good power source and ground for the module.
With no traffic around, turn on the exhaust brake and turn the toggle switch to the
Middle (White Light) position, then cruise at a constant speed above the set speed on
the module, then let off the throttle. The brake should have activated and you should
feel the hold back.
Turn the brake off to make sure the brake and lock-up clutch disengages. Turn the
brake on and cruise again at a constant speed, then let off the throttle and let the
vehicle slow down below the set speed, making sure the lock-up releases below the
set speed. If these situations fail to occur, then check the wiring to the brake and
module, and check terminal locations on the module.
While cruising at a constant speed and allowing the vehicle’s ECM to lock-up the
clutch, turn the toggle switch to the Down (Green Light) position, which should
disengage the clutch. If this does not occur, check the connections at the purple wires
(#6-7) and make sure that there is a 12V signal on the line.
On Dodge trucks, after starting up the truck and starting to drive the O/D off light
should have illuminated (if that option was hooked up). With the brake turned on, the
switch in the Middle (White Light) position and the O/D off light is no longer
illuminated, drive until overdrive is reached then let off the throttle. With the brake and
lock-up clutch engaged, push the overdrive button to check that the lock-up clutch
disengages and the transmission shifts out of overdrive.

If this fails to occur, check the O/D wire color and connection to that wire and that the
wire is on the right terminal at the module.
If any of the functions still fail to occur, phone our technical service department for
further assistance. To bypass the effects the module (if required), unplug the blue and
yellow wires of the transmission wire and plug the transmission wires back together.
After final wiring and testing has been done on the vehicle, secure the module to a
harness or a bracket under dash with tie wraps.
Wiring –Without Exhaust Brake
This includes Jacobs E-Brake for Dodge ISB and US Gear D-Celerator exhaust brakes.
For those applications where there is no exhaust brake installed or where the
automatic feature of the Torq/UnLoc module is not desired or cannot be installed,
follow the same wiring instructions as in the previous pages, except ignore the
connecting of the section of brown wire to the “Y” wire and brake wire (#4). Also,
ignore the chart of where to hook up that section of Brown wire (on next page).
NOTE: The Mid (White Light) position on the toggle switch now serves only as a stock
ECM operation.

Jacob’s E-Brake (6BTA)
The Torq/Unloc Basics
The basic difference between the TorqLoc (Up/Red-light) and AutoLoc (Middle/Whitelight) functions is that the AutoLoc automatically controls the TCC lock up signal once it
receives a power signal from the exhaust brake switch, and, the TorqLoc is for manual
lock-up of the clutch. So in comparing between the AutoLoc and the TorqLoc, the
TorqLoc will force the converter clutch to lock up and the AutoLoc will only hold a
converter clutch that is already locked up.
With Dodge transmissions, when you ask for an overdrive to third gear downshift, the
TorqLoc doesn’t wait for the computer to lock up the clutch, it sends its own signal to
the converter clutch, and as long as you are above the set speed and the transmission
is hydraulically correct (throttle pressure is applied), the TorqLoc will force a lock up.
The AutoLoc cannot force a lock up, it can only hold it on deceleration, so once the
downshift into third gear has occurred, lock-up must be reengaged with light throttle
application. The Dodge transmission does not lock up in third gear from a dead start
unless the overdrive is turned off, and it will not allow overdrive-to-third gear downshifts
if the torque converter clutch is locked up. The Torq/Unloc module compensates for
this via the overdrive switch and inverter functions.
With the AutoLoc, while driving with the overdrive turned off and the exhaust brake
turned on, the transmission shifts from first to second to third and then locks up.
Anytime after the lock up has occurred and you take your foot off the accelerator, the
AutoLoc will hold the torque converter clutch locked until about 25mph, and then it will
then turn off the torque converter clutch. When driving on the freeway in overdrive,
with the torque converter clutch locked up and the exhaust brake turned on, if you
release the throttle the AutoLoc will hold the torque converter clutch locked up. To
increase the amount of retarding horsepower, down shift into third by turning off the
overdrive.

Torq/UnLoc #1030398

When downshifting with Dodge trucks, you have to apply throttle pressure until the
factory computer says everything is okay and locks up the torque converter clutch. As
soon as this happens, you should remove throttle pressure and the AutoLoc will keep
the torque converter clutch applied until you get down to about the 25mph mark. The
set speed is adjustable and one can set it for a higher mph so you don’t have to worry
about remembering to turn off the overdrive, or, lower the set speed if one has 4:10
gears or a 2nd Gear Lock-Up valve body.
There may be times when you may need to make a quick stop or slow down which
canceling the AutoLoc or TorqLoc functions may be needed. Such conditions may be:
do not require the extra retarding horsepower of third gear, do not have time to wait for
the downshift and applying throttle to wait for lockup (this would all take about 4-6
seconds), and/or you do not want the shuddering that would occur when you have a
locked up torque converter clutch and you are going to be doing less than 35 mph in
overdrive.
You can do any of the following four actions to cancel out the system: 1) turn off the
exhaust brake, 2) turn off the overdrive, 3) lightly step on the throttle pedal, or 4) pull
the gearshift lever down into second gear. Turning off the overdrive or the exhaust
brake is the preferred of the four options.
The TorqLoc function should only be used under light throttle applications. No matter
whose torque converter you are using, the converter clutch has only so much holding
power and exceeding this will start to slip the clutch, thereby starting the demise of
your converter clutch. An example of when to use the TorqLoc position would be when
you are on a winding road where you are on and off the throttle a great deal and you
do not want to like the ECM locking and unlocking the converter clutch.
The TorqLoc will hold the converter clutch locked up, preventing that from happening.
You must keep in mind while doing this that if you apply too much throttle pressure,
especially at the lower rpm band, you may start to slip the converter clutch. A general
rule of thumb when holding the converter clutch locked up is that no more than 1 lb of
boost for every 100 rpm of engine speed (i.e. maximum 20lbs at 2000 rpm).
The UnLoc function works directly opposite to the TorqLoc function by manually
preventing the clutch from locking-up. This function is useful when the ECM locking-up
the clutch would drag the engine rpm out of the optimum torque range, or, when
traveling at such speeds would cause the ECM to cycle the lock-up clutch in and out.
