    DSIMs DomeRock Module for Courtesy Rock Lights


    Current Order Status
    Version 4 in Development

    Update 7/9 - Currently waiting on materials, meanwhile getting the shopify site live and working on designs for PNP kits for Gen2 Tacoma and 4Runner to be options in the future.

    upload_2019-7-8_14-41-35.jpg

    Product Description
    Add on module to automatically turn on your rock lights in sync with the dome lights on your rig. Upgrade your existing rock lights to be able use your existing switch for anytime activation (great for night trail riding!) as well as activation from the dome lights. With this add-on the rock-lights will illuminate as triggered by the dome light. Unlocking the vehicle, approaching the vehicle (with key-less entry), opening the doors, will all trigger the lights on. Locking the doors, leaving the vehicle for a period of time, etc will turn them off.

    Your dome lights are on a negatively switched circuit. Meaning it is not so simple to wire up in order to utilize both your switch (for anytime activation) AND turn on/off with the dome light. Utilizing a relay in the correct configuration and a few other electrical components allows this module to function properly. If you currently have a rock lights setup with a typical CH4x4 switch or SwitchPro setup this is all you need to be able to add the ability to trigger off of the dome light.

    In V3 there is a plug n play T-Harness that connects into OEM wiring located in the A-Pillar. The only splice required is into the existing Rock Light Setup!

    V4 will be a-la-carte moving forward. With kits identified. Here is what will be on the menu upon release.

    A-la-Carte
    1) DomeRock V4 Module
    2) Universal Harness (For non 3rd gen tacoma applications)
    3) 3rd Gen Tacoma Dome Rock V4 Main Harness
    4) 3rd Gen Tacoma OEM T-Harness
    5) MESO Puddles Adapter


    There will pretty much be 4 scenarios for consumers.

    A) I’ve got something other than a 3rd gen taco or I feel comfortable splicing my OEM wiring, and want to save a few bucks. You would need 1 & 2 above.



    B) I don’t have MESO’s puddles and want full PNP. You would need 1, 3, & 4 above.



    C) I already have @MESO s puddles that came with the T-Harness (don’t need another one). You would get need 1, 3, & 5 above.


    <Picture to be added here>
    (Don’t have the splitter modeled yet but you guys get the idea.) No T-Harness because you have it already and the splitter added.



    Here is a picture of the OEM T-Harness that will be available that is referenced above.

    Ordering Information
    Pricing and availability will be on my shopify with buy buttons linked here for individual items and kits.


    All proceeds go directly into my rig and subsequent posts here on TacomaWorld. Thanks for looking!

    Installation Information

    Harness wires

    Purple Wire - Output to Rock Lights

    Wires to T-Harness (You wont touch these)
    Red Wire - 12V+ CONSTANT (INPUT)
    Green Wire - To Negative Trigger in A-Pillar Harness (TRIGGER)
    Black Wire - Unused

    Description
    T-Harness added for Plug N Play Installation. The only wire you will have to tap is your Rock Lights.

    It is recommended to run your rock lights off of a relay. To keep current limited to the switch and other components (DomeRock Module). For LOW DRAW lights it will work without the additional relay but anything over a 3A draw needs a relay. The CH4x4 switches are all rated at 3A as well. Rule of thumb, just use a relay, they are a cheap and worth using. Wiring diagram for this is below.

    Installation Diagram

    upload_2019-7-8_12-48-7.jpg

    Wiring Diagram


    CH4x4 Switch Setup
    DomeRock_V3_Wiring_Diagram_CH4x4.jpg

    SwitchPro Setup
    DomeRock_V3_Wiring_Diagram_SwitchPro.jpg

    Switchpro Users. I wire my rock lights directly into my switchpro. Then just tap into the rock lights from my module directly to the switchpro output terminal. The lights I run underneath are extremely low draw so I run no additional relay. But it would be smart to run that additional relay as shown in the diagram. (Switchpro triggers the relay, and module also triggers the relay). The way I run it now, for courtesy light mode my module is supplying the power. Just need to be careful for higher current draw lights that's why I recommend that additional relay just in case.

    Install Instructions
    Step 1: Use the pick to remove the plastic piece in the a pillar that is covering the bolt.

    [​IMG]

    Step 2: Use the 10mm socket to remove the bolt and pull the a pillar cover off

    [​IMG]Step 3: Feed the large end of the OEM T-harness behind the dash towards the a pillar

    [​IMG]

    Step 4: Disconnect the OEM harness and plug the OEM female into the T-Harness male and the OEM male to the T-Harness female, you may need to cut the zip tie securing the OEM harness to do this.

    [​IMG]

    Step 5: Secure the T-Harness to the A-Pillar.
    [​IMG]

    Step 6: Tuck the extra slack of the T-harness in ensuring nothing is getting in the way or possibly interfering with the airbag.

    [​IMG]

    Step 7: Hook DSIM extension jst harness to the T-Harness

    Step 8: Remove lower left cubby to access behind the drivers kick panel.

    20190521_181119.jpg

    20190521_181143.jpg

    Step 9: Feed DSIM extension jst harness down to lower left cubby area and connect jst from extension harness to the DomeRock Module. Once connected if your dome lights are on you should here the relay click.

    Step 10: Zip Tie DomeRock Module using provided holes on the unit for secure mounting.

    20190521_181603.jpg

    Step 10: Route the purple wire to wherever your rock lights relay trigger is and splice into your existing rock lights circuit.

    Step 11: Reinstall A-Pillar and Lower Left Cubby.

    is there a way to cut them off when the dome light is on, for instance driving down the highway and a passenger needs dome lights to find/read something?

    Just checked it on my truck. The rock lights DO NOT come on when you turn on the dome lights with the switch in the upper switch panel.

    Good question!

    Just wanted to point out that this will work for anything you want to run both triggered from the dome and on a switch. (Floorwell Lights are a good example seperate from the rock lights)

    Quick update. I have identified a volunteer shipping first unit to him tomorrow for install.

    Once all checks out I will identify a price and build up the first batch.

    Mailed out the first unit to my volunteer. Hoping for the test install this weekend. Pending any modifications I am hoping to have a lot of at least 5 ready to go next week.

    I have updated post #2 with a wiring diagram. Will be updating that post with the installation instructions.

    But there are only 3 output wires that you need to tap into your existing CH4x4 Wiring.

    1) 12V+ Constant
    2) 12V+ Output (To Lights)
    3) Dome Light Trigger Wire (Yellow Wire in A-Pillar Harness)

    I've been wanting to do this on my 2nd gen forever. I'll have to see if the wiring is similar and report back in case any others are interested. Looking at the diagram... your harness does not utilize a diode, correct?
