You will need: Businss Card (provided), a marking tool (such as a pen, pencil, etc.), side cutters, X-acto knife or similar cutting tool, safety glasses, pliers, and a digital volt meter (DVM). PLEASE use safety glasses during this installation primarily during the cutting steps to prevent eye injury. PLEASE read through and understand the entire procedure BEFORE attempting to perform. IF there are any questions, please contact us for clarification.
Step 1. Remove the trim panel(s) below the A/C vents.
Step 2. Carefully remove the HVAC control module.
Step 3. Disconnect the OEM harness plugs from the HVAC control module.
Step 4. Identify and confirm the dimmer circuit using a DVM. On the 2007-2008 models, the solid GREEN and GREEN with WHITE striped wires are used. Please confirm this color code on other year models BEFORE continuing.
Step 5. Prepare the V2W mounting plate as shown here. Note the color coding on the wires (GREEN & GREEN w/WHITE).
Step 6. Crimp the AMP connectors to the OEM harness dimmer circuit. Match the colors on the mouting plate to the OEM harness.
Note: Ensure a complete crimp for trouble-free connection. Do NOT cut the wires during the crimping process. Take your time.
Step 7. Mark the OEM stereo plastic panel as shown using an ordinary business card.
Step 8. Make a small notch using side cutters, a sharp X-acto knife, or similar tool. Cut ONLY the lower edge to ensure a clean installation. Please be careful during this step.
Step 9. Confirm the notch is slightly to the left of the business card as shown. Ensure a large enough notch for the wire pair to pass.
Step 10. Reconnect the HVAC control module and begin re-assembly.
Step 11. Gently feed the wired mounting plate into the dash ensuring no wires are strained or twisted. DO NOT peel the 3M liner at this time!
Step 12. Install the HVAC control module completely ensuring the mouting plate is NOT obstructing the installation. DO NOT peel the 3M liner at this time!
Step 13. Gently pull the mounting plate away from the HVAC control module enough to magnetically mount the LED assembly.
Step 14. Mount the LED assembly to the mounting plate at this time and peel the 3M liner.
Step 15. Carefully position the LED assmbly and mounting plate as far back as it will fit. Press firmly for a few seconds.
Step 16. Confirm the position.
Step 17. Test the unit: Turn ON the Tacoma Parking lights.
a. Move the 3-position slide switch to either the Primary (middle) or secondary (right) positions.
b. Adjust the TSDC contacts to full brightness.
c. Adjust the Tacoma dimmer circuit to confirm a proper wiring connection has been made.
d. Magnetically dismount the LED light from the mounting plate. It should still be on for remote lighting needs.
Step 18. Enjoy!
