    Hey guys. I posted this in the toyotanation forums but also wanted to post this here. I have an 08 V6 access cab that didnt come with cruise control. I found the DIY at TN and found out I have the problem with the missing power and ground wire. Below is my post from that site. Please help me! This is driving me ABSOLUTELY BONKERS!!! Post 145 is how to do it and post 238 is my response. Thanks

I bought another wire bundle (like you used going from the cruise switch)and cut the connectors out of the white terminal plugs with a small knife. I used three of these bullet type connectors and one connector with an "O" on the end that will slip over a screw shaft for a ground. The "O" type connector was used on a ground bolt behind the passenger side right kick panel (to the right of a passengers right calf). You'll see a white terminal with only white with black stripe wires in it which are all grounds. You'll take out the bolt that holds the terminal to the truck body and slip the "O" connector over it. You've just hooked up your ground.


    Ok, so I've been at this for 2 weeks now. I cannot find those stupid little connectors that crimp on the end of the wires and lock into the plug. I have everything installed, including running the wires. The only thing that needs done is connecting the wires to the plugs. I have checked at Advanced Auto, Autozone, Napa, 3 different car audio stores, radio shack, and 4 different electronics stores. The only junk yard that has a similar plug wants $80 (he would be charging for the whole harness even if I just cut off the plug). 3 electricians I work with don't know what they are called or where to get them. The Toyota garage doesn't know exactly which connectors they are, so they said they would gladly charge me $73.50 for me to bring it in and figure it out.

    klinejmk, you said you ordered another harness that goes from the stalk to the steering column (the one with 2 wires for the CC and 1 for the air bag ground) and cut out the connectors? Did you get exactly what you needed from this? correct size and everything? I noticed the size of the hole for the plug that goes into the ECU is bigger than the ones underneath the steering column. Somebody please help me!!! [​IMG] x 1,000,000,000,000
