An ISO 9001:2008 Registered Company
HL515-B Fast Idle, Lift Interlock
2015 - 2018 Ford Transit
Introduction
The HighLock 515-B is a wheelchair lift safety interlock which will only work with the ignition On. It will
enable the lift when certain vehicle safety conditions are met, and will lock the transmission shifter in Park
when the lift door is open and/or the Park Brake is applied. The HighLock 515-B also has the Fast Idle
option. The Advanced Fast Idle System (AFIS) elevates engine idle speed in response to a number of
triggers in order to assist electrical or mechanical systems on the vehicle.
IMPORTANT—READ BEFORE INSTALLATION
It is the installer’s responsibility to route and secure all wiring harnesses where they cannot be damaged by
sharp objects, mechanical moving parts and high heat sources. Failure to do so could result in damage to
the system or vehicle and create possible safety concerns for the operator and passengers. Avoid placing
the module where it could encounter strong magnetic fields from high current cabling connected to motors,
solenoids, etc. Avoid radio frequency energy from antennas or inverters next to the module. Avoid high
voltage spikes in vehicle wiring by always using diode clamped relays when installing upfitter circuits.
Installation Instructions
Disconnect vehicle battery before proceeding with installation
HL515-B Module
Remove the lower dash panel below the steering column area and find a suitable location to mount the
HL515-B module. Locate the module in an area away from any external heat sources (engine heat, heater
ducts, etc.). Do not mount the module until all wire harnesses are routed and secure. The last step of
installation is to mount the module.
Data Link Harness Installation
1. Locate the vehicle OBDII Data Link Connector, mounted below the lower left
dash panel.
2. Remove the mounting screws for the OBDII connector. Plug the Red connector
from the HL515-B Data Link Harness into the vehicle’s OBDII connector. Ensure
the connection is fully seated and secure with the supplied wire tie.
3. Mount the White pass through connector from the HL515-B Data Link Harness in
the former location of the vehicle’s OBDII connector.
4. Secure the HL515-B Data Link harness so that it does not hang below the lower
dash panel.

LED Display Panel Mounting—Black 4-pin connector
1. Locate a suitable position on the dashboard, within view of the driver to mount the LED Display Panel.
Ensure there is open space behind the dash where the panel is mounted. The harness is 40” in length,
which is the maximum distance the display can be from the module.
2. Drill a 5/8” hole in the dash where the center of the display will be located.
3. Attach the Black 4-pin connector of the LED Display Panel Harness to the module. Run the other end of
the harness under the dash and out through the 5/8” hole.
4. Attach the end to the LED Display Panel.
5. Ensure the panel is level and secure using supplied screws.
Control Inputs, Output and Lift Inhibit Connections
12-pin I/O connector
The HL515-B provides three ground side inputs and one ground side output.
Lift Inhibit pin-2: Grounding this input will prevent the module from supplying power on its Wheel Chair
Lift Output pin.
Door Ajar pin-5: (Optional input), connect this wire only if the optional Door Ajar panel is used and an
additional door connection is desired. Insert the green wire (provided with panel) into the connector
and lengthen as needed, using solder, heat shrink and tape. Connect to the door switch so that a
ground is supplied when the door is open.
Transmission=Park pin-9: This output can be used to control upfitter circuits, by providing a ground
signal when the transmission is in Park. Maximum current draw is 1/2 amp.
Fast Idle– Engage pin-10: This input pin can be connected to a ground side switch to activate Fast Idle.
A 12-pin mating connector is provided along with 5 terminals (two extra). To use any of these inputs/
output, properly crimp a connector terminal provided to the installer supplied wire using the correct crimping
tool (Molex Part# 11-01-0197), and insert into the correct connector pin housing.
Ensure the terminals are fully seated in the connector. The largest wire that can be used with these
terminals is 16 AWG. Snap this connector into the HL515-B module’s 12-pin connector.

Lift Door Identification
The module comes from the factory with the discrete lift door input identified as the lift door. If
the side door or rear door happens to be the lift door, the module needs to know which of the two
possible doors (side or rear) is defined to be the lift door; perform the following procedure to
accomplish this:
1. Assure Side and Rear Doors are closed
2. Vehicle is in PARK with Key in the RUN position and engine OFF
3. Park Brake is applied
4. Put the module in diagnostic page 4 by momentarily shorting the two “test” pads together FOUR
times- verify the status LED is flashing code 4-4.
5. Pump the Service Brake pedal (4 times within 5 sec) till you see module LEDs 8-10 stay on solid.
You will have one minute to choose which door will be used for the lift.
6. Now go and open the lift door; LED 8-10 will turn off and the LED associated with the Lift door will
turn on. See table
7. Verify the lift door is “known” by opening and closing it while watching the “Lift Door Open” LED on
the display panel.

Post Installation (continued)
Fast Idle
The Fast Idle option has several “auto triggers” that will increase engine RPM. These include low
battery voltage, air conditioner on, engine cold, and external switch input on pin #10 of the 12 Pin
connector (I/O 4).
1. Press the Service Brake for 1 second. Fast idle will temporarily disengage anytime the brake pedal is
pushed, but will automatically reengage after approximately 2 seconds once the Service Brake pedal is
released.
2. Shut down the engine and verify that all LED’s turn off, which may take a few minutes. Do not
activate any vehicle controls during this time (windows, mirrors, doors, etc.).
Setting Fast Idle RPM Speeds (900 RPM - 2000 RPM)
The HL515 has a configurable RPM setting. The default setting is triggered by low battery voltage, air
conditioner On, or external switch inputs. The setting is changed by doing the following procedure:
Default Configuration
1. Momentarily short the two “test” pads together THREE times. The
status LED on the module will flash a 3-3 code (three short flashes,
a pause, and three more short flashes).
2. The vehicle RPM will increase to the currently configured setting.
3. To raise the RPM by 50, momentarily ground pin 1 on the 4-pin
connector until the desired RPM is set.
4. Short the “test” pads TWO more times until no LED’s are lit on the
module.

2014 - 2018 Ford Transit
Advanced
eration
Fast Idle Op-
The Advanced Fast-Idle System (AFIS) option of the HL515-B includes Charge-Protect and Manual engage
modes. Charge-Protect is a feature that maintains vehicle charging system voltage by increasing and
controlling vehicle idle speed when necessary. Whenever the charging system voltage falls below a
minimum voltage of 12.5V, the AFIS feature will increase idle speed and maintain fast idle until one of
the safety conditions is no longer met, the user cycles the shift lever, or the user manually disengages
fast idle. The Charge-Protect and Manual engage modes also require that all safety conditions are met.
Safety conditions that must be met to engage or maintain Fast Idle operation
Vehicle NOT moving (speed = 0 MPH).
Service Brake NOT pressed.
Vehicle Transmission Range in Park
RPM inside of safe operating range.
Transmission Fluid Temperature below 250° F.
Engine Coolant Temperature below 230° F.
Fast Idle may be initiated by either a manual or automatic Fast Idle trigger. The AFIS strategy can only
command elevated idle when certain safety conditions are met (see above section). Fast Idle operation can
be terminated by a safety condition violation. If a Fast Idle operation terminates due to a safety condition
violation, automatic Fast Idle is unavailable until Park is de-asserted and re-asserted. (Shift out of Park and
back into Park). The base Fast Idle RPM level is determined by the type of engine (Gas or Diesel) in the
vehicle. For Gas engine vehicles, the idle speed is 1500 RPM and Diesel applications remain fixed at 1200
RPM.
Manual Fast Idle Start Trigger
Fast Idle Input – ground applied to 12 Pin connector Pin #10 of the HL515-B Module, such as an input from
Coach AC.
Automatic Fast Idle Start Trigger
Charge Protection - Battery voltage less than 12.5V.
Fast Idle Disengagement Triggers
Safety Condition Violation.
Engine Coolant Temperature > 230° F.
Open or battery voltage on 12 Pin connector Pin #10 while in Fast Idle caused by 12 Pin connector Pin #10
fast idle input.
Transmission Fluid Temperature above 250° F.
Note: Fast Idle will temporarily stop anytime the brake pedal is depressed, but will automatically
reengage after approximately 2 seconds once the brake pedal is released.
When additional electrical or A/C loads are in use, engine RPM may drop. The AFIS feature will
raise the RPM back up to the fast idle speed. When the load is removed, engine RPM will
Increase. AFIS will lower the RPM back to the fast idle speed.

HL515-B-100217-INS
Operating Instructions (continued)
Lift Operation
The Intelligent Lift Interlock System of the HL515-B is a microprocessor driven system for controlling
wheelchair lift operation. Lift operation will only be allowed when all of the following conditions are met:
•
•
•
•
•
The vehicle is in “Park”.
The parking brake is applied.
The vehicle ignition is on.
The lift door is open.
Lift inhibit is not activated.
The HL515-B will not allow the vehicle to be shifted out of park if the lift door is open. As an added feature,
it also will not allow the vehicle to be shifted out of park when the parking brake is applied. This feature
eliminates excessive parking brake wear due to driving with the parking brake applied.
If the vehicle has Daytime Running Lights, they will be activated when the Lift Door is Open
and/or the Park Brake is On and the Ignition key is On.
When the vehicle is first started, or if the key is turned to
the “Run” position, the five upper LED’s (Active), on the
display panel will illuminate for 2 seconds as a prove out of
the LED’s. The lower Icon LED’s are (Backlit) and should
remain illuminated whenever the HL515-B module is awake.
The module will stay awake for several minutes after the
ignition is turned off.
Active LEDs
Backlit LEDs
Vehicle Secure/Lift Power, Lift Door, Park Brake, Park, Shift Lock
Optional Door Ajar Display Panel
LED function and prove out is the same as the Standard
Display Panel, except that all LEDs are (Active) and remain
illuminated whenever the module is awake.
After prove out, the operation of the LED panel is as
follows:
Lift Door/Aux Door
Vehicle Secure – Illuminates in green if the lift is
Vehicle Secure/Lift Power, Park Brake, Park, Shift Lock
enabled. This means that all conditions for lift operation
have been met and the lift has been supplied a vehicle
secure signal.
Park Brake – Illuminates in Red when the parking brake is applied.
Park - Illuminates in Red when the vehicle transmission is in the park range.
Lift Door - Illuminates in Red when the lift door is open.
Shift Lock - Illuminates in Red when the lift door is open and/or the parking brake is applied. If illuminated,
the driver will not be allowed to shift out of park.
Confirmation Signal – The vehicle lamps and radio will cycle briefly when the ignition is on and the lift door
is initially closed. This is a confirmation signal sent from the Ford Econoline controller.
All Five Interlock LED’s must be illuminated for the Wheelchair Lift to operate
The HL515-B initializes when the vehicle ignition is On. After the initialization, the HL515-B requests various
vehicle data by sending data request messages across the OEM CAN diagnostic data network and all control
logic is performed. When the HL515-B module has been running and the vehicle ignition is turned to the Off
or accessory positions, the module goes into a low current consumption “sleep” mode. This may take up to
5 minutes.
