I'm about to install a power lock kit in my '07 2wd. I've bought a kit and gone over all the wiring in my head, then on paper, then on a workbench taping ends together with labels and tags. Now, I pulled out the tray on the left side of the steering wheel, the one right in front of the fuse box, to look at the fuse box chart on the back. And that's when I started scratching my head. Yes, I'm a little hesitant about electronics! I think I have everything figured out but would greatly appreciate if someone could verify my head is not screwed on backwards and upside down because I don't want to create a fireworks show, which my neighbors might enjoy, but I just don't enjoy entertaining the neighbors.
Here it goes:
Some wires get connected to some other wires.... and all of these wires are the anti social type. They don't get connected to any wire that is already part of my Taco. Not to mention that the kit was nice enough to just tell me to connect wires that are the same color, so I'll do that and get to the real questions.
OK, two wires have me worried.
1. I have one wire that needs to be connected to a "Constant Power Source (always has 12 volts)." My intention is to use a 20amp fuse that has a built in pig tail and solder that pig tail to the wire that requires all of that "Constant Power Source" attention. Then I'm going to push that fuse into the slot that is labeled "DR LCK 20A." This makes sense to me. I don't have any existing power door locks, but I do think it was nice of those Toyota people to include a slot in that fuse box knowing I might one day want to get fancy and push a button for convenience and all.
Can I use this fuse slot for this?
If anyone sees a problem using this slot please stop me now. It's not being used..... uh, right??? Otherwise I'll get to the other wire, which I am much more fuzzy about.
2. The second wire has to be connected to "Ignition Power Source (12 volts with key on)." Now I could use another 20A pigtail fuse and plug into one of the slots labeled "IG1 10A" or "IG1 NO.2 10A." And here lies the problem. Can I plug a 20A fuse into a slot labeled 10A? Does "IG" mean Ignition? And how do I know if the power is "constant" or "not constant?" Now not knowing the answer to a single one of those questions I got the idea that maybe I could plug that 20A pigtail fuse into another slot that I know I don't use that is labeled "P RR P/W 20A." I think that means "Power Rear Right Power Window." And if it does I'd be OK, especially since I don't have any rear doors at all.
Can I use this fuse slots for this?
And just in case anyone is wondering the kit I'm using is a "Valet 712T" which came with an "MES Cable Style Central Door Locking Kit." Something Swiss, I think. I bought it from A1Electric.com.
Well, there's my predicament. And if anyone can help me avoid entertaining the neighbors I would surely be thankful.
