    Just did this mod and love it! I followed @Toy4me on post #304 method because I didn't want to buy any connectors and crimp them. Here are my steps:

    • Sourced the illuminated ring for the years of vehicles from @ramonortiz55 post #234 and bought a 2011 Camry Ignition switch w/ Immobilizer on eBay
    • Stole the ring and pigtail from this assembly
    • Extracted the connectors w/ wire for two of the ones from pins 2-6 that will fit in the Tacoma connector for illumination(this was difficult - had to use a sharp point and poke through the housing to press down the locking points on the connectors while pulling them from the back to get them out)
    • Followed directions from the first post with pdf on steps to remove installed ring
    • Soldered longer wire onto both wires that were extracted from pigtail for (+) and (-) illumination
    • Followed the pdf all the way to the end and everything works great! Hopefully I can sell the rest of the Camry assembly and old ring to net out the mod, we'll see...
    Thanks again everyone here on this discussion that contributed to this mod!

    Random question. But seeing as this deals with ignition and I recently installed a 12volt solutions remote start kit, will this affect that I’m any way ? Thanks
