    A generous application of dielectric grease will provide the same protection with the added benefit of corrosion protection between the terminals.
    Just a little FYI. :thumbsup:

    He is referring to the fact that you have to set all doors to unlock with drivers door (via smart handle) if you want to install the passenger door smart handle. Because the passenger smart handle connects to the driver side the way we have it installed, if you didn’t set all doors to unlock when you grabbed your new passenger handle only the drivers door would unlock defeating the purpose.
    The new 2020 models with a passenger smart handle from the factory would be able to keep the settings to only unlock the specific handle wanted since they will be able to code that into the ECU, an option is 2016-2019 owners don’t have.
    Of course the settings for the remote are separate from this and can be left with the one press, two press settings you describe, two different settings in Entune which work two different ways (remote vs handle touch)

    Ahhh, thank you for the clarification. That makes perfect sense.

    I forgot to share some more photos of inside the driver's door with the wiring and connector that is connected to the driver's touch handle. You can see that there is a black plastic protector over the connector and wires if you want to add that for some extra protection. Last pic shows how I discovered that I have a bunch of wires/pins that fit in the door handle connector :bananadance:

    Just got my harness, much thanks to @1bad2k !! Install should be painless now. Wouldn’t even have tried to do the mod without it. Thanks to @Victory for making this possible!!

    Glad you like it man! Definitely helps make this mod have a more "OEM feel" imo.

    Finished my install today. Followed @ Victory instructions . I found it fairly easy. Pulling the wire boot made fishing the wire very easy.

    Only thing I did not have on hand was the white grease . I used marine grease with Teflon. Hopefully that does not cause an issue.

    I was very glad the wire bundle was easy to get too unlike my pop and lock install.

    What else can we modify!!

    Fun Saturday.

    Thank you @Victory

    Waiting to see an install tutorial when the 2020 Tacoma parts become available (new truck now has passenger door keyless entry)... should make the install easier?

    It won’t make it easier- might make it look cleaner and more professional but will certainly cost more to buy more factory wiring parts. If you really spend the big money you can buy the factory ECU and have the passenger door function seperate from the drivers door.
    Either way it won’t make it easier (unless your just trading in for a 2020) and will make it more expensive if you are buying more factory parts.

    Just completed installing. Pretty easy except the door boot. If you follow the directions throughout this post, anyone could do it. Thanks OP and everyone else who supplied their experiences.

    The vehicle owner's manual mentions either door. but only shows driver's, OP got what was intended and now an add-on in the newer model.

    At least the sensor. I’m sure somebody out there can make a way to mount the sensor to the tailgate. If only the signal would reach.
