    Not sure on the '15's, but on my '12, I used the install guide pictures from Flyzeye Designs, to find the illumination and power wires from the AC control unit. If you scroll through the pictures http://www.flyzeye-designs.com/v2w_1214.html the wire colors matched my 12.

    I bought the 4 runner originally because I thought this was the only option. Then I found out about the Hilux mod and like the look of it better since its black and matches my bezel, and since my plugs are already wired up I just have to swap the two switches, easy as that....
    Wasnt trying to scam you, was just trying to help you out since i had EXACTLY what you were looking for.... But I think mine is going to be listed for sale at $107 dollars now... at least to you anyways..:brianr:

    Do you guys or anyone have any idea why after splicing the 2 wires noted above (i have a 2013) the lights in the HVAC and Helix do not light up. When I removed one wire from the Helix the HVAC lights come back on. Been trying to figure it out for awhile and can't seem to find a solution. The Helix switch works but does not light up.

    Have you tried swapping the two wires from the Hilux switch?
