    I ordered the left, drivers side, but if you flip it around, can be used for the right. Toyota doesnt sell a right side smart entry handle....Yet!

    Mods: Is this still a Tacoma?
    This is a good point, through my research in changing my chromes to body colored, the description for all the door handles BUT the drivers side changed, but the part number stayed the same which led me to believe they are all symmetrical and flippable. The only reason driver's side has a different part number is because of the "touch to enter" feature, it's $144 versus the other 3 handles on a double cab that are only $40. So yes. This is an engineering design to mass produce cost effectively. Plus I think Tacomas share the same handles as some of the other Toyotas. And as mentioned above my post, they don't have one yet so they must describe it because last thing you want to do is accidentally order $144 handles for ones that would only cost you $40 in time of repair or replacement.

    Yes order the Left side/ Drivers side, you will flip it over and install on the passenger side.

    Nice write up OP. I know the wire you used was 24 gauge. Is that just a speaker type wire or something else?

    Speaker wire comes in different gauges too and has varying resistance.
    I would try to closely match OEM gauge for this project.

    Yes I used 24 Gauge speaker wire. I bought a spool of 100 ft at Home Depot.
    https://www.homedepot.com/p/Commerc...Gauge-Stranded-Speaker-Wire-Y483233/203726258

    Compared to this 24 gauge, OEM wires seemed about the same until you strip them, then it seems OEM is probably 22 gauge with a thinner coating. At least those “repair terminal” wires.

    Thanks OP, great write up and of great value to the forum. My wife's Q5 had it active on all 4 doors and that was really convenient. She moved to an X4M and it only has the front doors. A little annoying as we're often accessing the back doors first. My Taco as you know, only has the driver's door. I've opened my wife's door for the 20 years we've been married, so I always have to dig out my 'key-less entry fob' in order to open her door. Sort of makes the key-less entry aspect useless, at least 50% of the time.

    So, for ~$200 I can add that functionality back now.

    Love TW. As dysfunctional a family as it is, it still works.

    Parts ordered.... did the Lexus Key Fob last year... there is a flat key that fits inside of it... when I did the mod, the key had to be purchased separately. Found both on Ebay.
