  1. Hi all, just wondering if someone may know or have information on easy access points to the central locking wires in a 1998 ST204 Celica? I have a receiver unit and remotes from a previous vehicle [ written off AE101 Corolla ] and need to tap into the open and close wires, Easy on a corolla as the switches are console but I hate pulling doors apart so any help greatly appreciated. Maybe someone has a wiring diagram? It's own VSS is disabled with no remotes and I believe from research this is the best way to go. I don't want an alarm just remote access would be nice. Update 30/10/2019 Job finished found some wiring diagrams showed me where to look and patched into 2 wires under the Drivers kick panel. So far so good no issues and seems to all work well.
  2. Hi Everyone, Now that my RAV4.3 is out of warranty I've been working on a project. I've replaced the Instrument Cluster, Spiral Cable and Steering Wheel with units stripped straight from a UK based model. The image below is how it is currently looking. I̶ ̶h̶a̶d̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶r̶e̶w̶i̶r̶e̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶C̶l̶u̶s̶t̶e̶r̶ ̶h̶a̶r̶n̶e̶s̶s̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶t̶a̶k̶e̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶n̶e̶w̶ ̶u̶n̶i̶t̶,̶ ̶b̶u̶t̶ ̶e̶v̶e̶n̶t̶u̶a̶l̶l̶y̶ ̶g̶o̶t̶ ̶a̶l̶l̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶f̶e̶a̶t̶u̶r̶e̶s̶ ̶w̶o̶r̶k̶i̶n̶g̶.̶ Appears I only had to do this because at the time I had a manual cluster fitted to an automatic car. When I eventually got the automatic cluster I had to undo all the changes I'd made. Don't **** it up like I did, just get the correct cluster first time around. The differences over the old AU cluster are; Average Consumption Instant Consumption Average Speed Range Now while the cluster has a DISP button for cycling the features, I've been working on wiring the DISP button on the steering wheel to also do that function. The standard RAV4 AU's wiring harness does not have the necessary wiring to support this feature. I was able to obtain the Instrument Clusters wiring diagram and determine that Pin 18 is where the absent cable should be on the Cluster side.... What I wasn't able to figure out is what pin on the spiral cable / clock spring side is required to be connected. Does anyone have any details regarding Toyota's clock springs and their standard for wiring? Somebody suggested that pinout for the Spiral cable is the same as the kluger. I'm not sure if that is correct, nor have I been able to find any wiring diagrams regarding that clock spring either.
  3. Hello, I am trying to fit a UHF radio to my 2018 Landcruiser 200 VX and am wondering how to get through the grommet on the drivers side of the firewall and if I have to remove anything on the dash to access wires from inside the car. All help would be much appreciated, Thanks Rusty1963
  4. Hi guys, Badly need some help please... I have a 2010 model Rav4 with the stock head unit Fujitsu PZQ60-00052. I bought an aftermarket reversing camera and installed it myself all went well until I am about to connect it to the head unit as there is not video RCA connectivity just like on my aftermarket camera. I've been searching through google to find some information on where I can install it. I've seen one car before with exactly the same head unit and it has a reversing camera so I know mine is capable. Toyota service also acknowledge that it's possible but did not tell me which one. (I'm kinda expecting that)
  5. Hey all, I'm attempting to install a lightbar on my 2003 Rav 4 (2 Door) but I seem to be having an issue, the headlight wiring is backwards!!! The highbeam wire seems to have 12v when there is no lights on, parkers are on or the high beams are on. So the lightbar is on/can be turned on anytime? This seems to be unusual and all of my friends cars that I helped install work as normal. Was wondering how I can wire my lightbar up so it is only active when the highbeams are on and then also on/off from an extra button. Whats the secret with the Ravs? (I've done some research but can't seem to find a solution)
  6. Hi all, We have just fitted a new Parkside 50mm hitch towbar to my 2010 Ateva. The complete new wiring loom came with an ECU box and enough wire ( on one of the orange wires) to reach the glove box ( eg fuse box area) OR alternatively, connect into the exisiting multi pin connector in the rear boot ( along with the patch wiring for the towbar wiring) The instructions, while reasonably good are still a bit vague on what constitutes a 'prewired' car. I assumed that on this model the wiring already goes to the rear ( eg: no need to run the single orange wire the lenght of the car?) And there is an existing matching wire in the existing plug ( in the boot) however the wire, in the matching location in the plug, is green. So it looks like it is 'prewired'. When the trailer is connected up to the car ( the wiring loom from the boot to the trailer is OK for continuity- on all wires) However none of the trailer lights work! The car trail lights blinkers etc all work.I now the trailer works. And no volts on the voltmeter. Does anyone have any experience with wiring these? At this stage my best guess is there is no supply getting to the ECU 'box'. Perhaps the orange wire does have to be run to the glovebox? Or the ECU box is faulty ( the whole install is new equipment) Any help would be much appreciated. By the way, the Parkside towbar, itself, fitted quite well ( heaps of bolts, strong as!) Regards
  7. Hi just bought a 95 vienta sedan and want to put a new headunit in but as I’ve gone to do it none of the wires seem to be matching up. It has become very confusing and frustrating. I would very much appreciate a guide for the colour code of the wires. P.s. I have done many headunits in other cars but none have been as confusing and strange as this.
  8. Hey guys, just wondering if someone could help me. My door ajar light in the dash is constantly on, pressing both of the courtesy switches in my doors do nothing. The courtesy light in the roof also stays on whether it is in the on or door position but goes off when in the off position. I have also tested for continuity in both switches and they check out fine, as well as all the fuses. I don't really know where to go from here. Any help would be appreciated
  9. I recently bought a 2000 model Avalon but the electric boot release is not working. The solenoid is working fine as I switched it with a known good unit, the problem is in the wiring. using the button on the keyfob gains the same result; the system registers & the horn chirps but, the boot refuses to open... All attempts to google the issue have failed. I've checked all fuses, which seem to be ok. While inspecting the glovebox release switch I also noticed there is no power to the glovebox light; are the two connected? What fuse should I be looking for? Some suggestions say "dome light fuse" which is ok & all the interior lights work... I could really use some help with this one; a link to a wiring diagram would be extremely helpful...
  10. Has anyone fitted a Portman turbo timer to a late model (mine is 2012) SR5 Hilux 4x4, I am trying to find the correct wires to connect to, it says to connect the Red wire to the Main 12 volt lead at the harness (Target wire registers voltage at all times) I've found 2 that fit that description, a black with red stripe and a white with red stripe. Connect the Blue wire to switched wire at the harness (target wire registers voltage when ignition key is turned to the ON position AND the START position) this would be the Blue / Red Wire. Connect the Yellow wire to switched wire at the harness (target wire registers voltage when ignition key is turned to the ON position ONLY when turned to the Start position the target wire registers Zero voltage) I cant find this wire at all??? ANY HELP WOULD BE MUCH APPRECIATED.
  11. Does anyone have any documentation or drawings for '08 Aurion Presara electrical or CANBUS? Secondly, My Satnav is on v14. If anyone has a newer version they'd like to move let me know. Finally, anyone successfully added remote start to a Toyota with push-to-start?
  12. Hey guys, I've got a 2010 Toyota corolla ascent. It hasn't got fog lights on it, and i'd like to put some on. I removed the foglight cover (only the drivers side) on the weekend and found that there is a plug that is just sitting there without anything to be connected to, would that be for the fog lights? IF anyone has put foglights on the 2010 ascent corolla and is able to assist me in anyway possible it would be great. Thank you in advance!
  13. Anyone have one or know where I can get one?
  14. Hi All, have gotten some handy info off this board already. Live in remote WA so it's been really useful for me. Have recently purchased an 01 Hilux, dualcab, 3L diesel. Happy with it for sure, but a bit of work to be done and living so far from civilisation means I'm doing it myself. First thing I'm tackling is a short. The 15A dome fuse blows after 2-3 seconds of popping in a new one. Unfortunately I've run out of fuses and have to wait for my box of 50 and multimeter to come with the postie which might be a while yet. Pulled off the dash panels to see if it was anything obvious and one thing has stuck out. The previous owner has installed an aftermarket stereo (aftermarket immobiliser and spotties too, but they're both working fine) and run a wire which I don't entirely understand. Basically they've crimped in a thickish wire (3-4mm), black outer with red inner, on to the blue-yellow at 1J - 12, just below the junction. This wire runs over to the stereo and has been soldered into a 3-way connection with the stereo's yellow 12v constant + blue/yellow from the wiring harness. I got my diagrams from hilux4x4.co.za/manual if anyone is interested. I'm not really sure what this is for, but they have also cut the wire and left it hanging so that the 3-way connection is still there, just the black with red is hanging loose. Have taped it off, it still popped a fuse though. Any idea what this wire is for? Should I remove it given it's just hanging? Suggestions on good place to look for the short? Cheers, Bowzzzer
  15. So i've got a shiny new headunit to upgrade what i currently have my my car the new one has an orange/white wire in the harness i believe its supposed to dim the lights on the headunit when you turn your headlights on. I have a 2000 Corolla and i'm not sure if i have somewhere or where i should connect this orange/white wire just wondering if anyone might have any ideas? Here is a picture of the wire i'm talking about in the wiring diagram.
  16. How To Install a Brake Controller in Aurion/Camry using "Seat-Heater Power" Just bought a brake controller for towing a camper trailer with electric brakes. Meant to be "plug-and-play" but it isn't and needs custom wiring. Anyway, thought I'd have a go at installing it myself and uploading it, since the quoted install was $120-$300 (AutoBarn cheapest btw). The brake controller electrics require power from the battery, the stoplight signal, a 20 amp fuse and an electric brake wire running from the dash to the previously Toyota installed towbar at the rear. 4 Wire diagram that I got with it for the Voyager Tekonsha brake controller is shown below: The instructions say to locate the brake controller as far away as possible from the antenna and radio so as an added precaution to reduce RF noise I added a ferrite core to the power and brake wires as shown below to filter out noise a bit. Using "Seat-Heater" Power Having looked at it, I wanted to integrate it neatly into the Aurion electrics without the need for putting wires through to the engine bay directly to the battery. This avoids some fiddley work feeding loose wires through the grommet in the firewall and avoids designing in a relay, to switch off the brake controller when the car is turned off since I am paranoid it will run the battery down! As it turns out, the Aurion/Camry Electric wiring manual is available (07EWD.pdf). This manual is separate to the service manuals. Plenty of underutilised power is available in the junction box in the front-left passenger side behind the glove box (eg. Left Power Seat {30A}, mirror heater and seat heaters {20A}...hey, so I have an ATX!} Beautiful thing is, it is all pre-wired from the factory, and even the fuses are pre-installed so you can easily borrow power from one of these locations depending on your amperage requirements. Anyway here's the step by step on the install, hope it helps someone... Step 1. Prep Assuming you have the Toyota towbar and wiring harness installed, then: Remove the glove box and backing, left passenger foot sills, B pillar cover, front left foot cowl area cover and left cover in boot area to expose the towbar wiring harness. Here is a picture of the junction box at the left print passenger side. While I was there I took the opportunity to clean the air conditioner filter which was surprisingly full of leaves! Locate the thick ~2mm^2 blue electric brake wire in the boot (mine was taped back and exposed near the left rear wheel arch inside the boot. Next unhook the negative terminal on the battery prior to any electrical work. Step 2. Feed through the Electric Brake Wire Attach a suitable length wire (mine was heavy gauge 12awg) to the blue electric brake wire (I soldered and covered mine in heat shrink but you could crimp it with a butt connector, blue wire would be best but I had black). Feed the wire from the boot through to the back seat then along the left of the vehicle under the foot sills etc. to the dash. Clean up with cable ties. Step 3. Attach Power Wire to Brake Controller In the junction box behind the glove box locate the "seat-heater" 20A power supply no. 19 pin since we are going to use this to power the brake controller (shown in pic below). If you have higher amperage requirements an alternative would be to tap into the power seat supply - though I'm not sure this turns off when the car turns off. Connect a wire to the power on pin 19 for the brake controller here. I searched everywhere for a proper Toyota female junction pin, I had no luck at Toyota parts or auto electricians, in the end I drilled out the plug to make space for a standard female terminal bought from Jaycar. Step 4. Splice Stop light signal wire Splice a wire to the stop light signal wire (blue wire in my case). I used a scotch connector for this. Connect this spliced wire to the brake controller stop light input. Picture shows connector on my job below. Step 5. Complete the circuit Next you want to attach the negative side of the battery to the brake controller. In most cars negative is earthed to the chassis, as it is for the Aurion. Attach the negative wire from the brake controller to a suitable earth point. In this case I chose the earth point below the junction box. Step 6. Mount the brake controller Couldn't find a great place for the brake controller, I put it below the steering wheel and fed the wires to it from behind the centre console. Step7. Check Fuse and Relabel. The fuse for the seat-heater is under the junction box we have been using. Check it is installed should be a 20A micro-blade fuse shown below. I relabeled mine so I can find it if the brake controller blows.... Final Step. Reconnect negative terminal of battery, then do whatever you manual says to calibrate/tune the brake controller. You're done! Get the kids to cleanup and reassemble the car while you relax.....argh!
  17. We own a 2010 ATX Aurion and need to get some wires from the engine bay into the passenger cabin to wire up a Tekinsha P3 brake controller, The actual wiring of the unit seems straight forward but I can't see a simple way to get the power wire from the battery through the firewall to the P3 unit. There is a mass of wires in there but with everything else under the bonnet it is hard to get a clear view of any grommets or other access points. Any help appreciated
  18. Hi, my 02 Camry has an air con switch on the dash. I have purchased a digital thermostat so I can make my AC turn on and off at a pre set temp, say 20 deg C. The thermostat can be pre set to open or close a contact any any set temp. I've popped out my AC switch loom (5 wires) Red / Bk Grn WH / Bk Blu Red /Wh Can anyone help me find out which wire to interupt with the thermodtat contacs? Thanks, Greg.
