    How are they powered? Battery? Wire? Will Power? I want to do the mod where you put the sensor in the pvc pipe but I was wondering what will make them transmit? This should be an easy one for TW.

    i'm thinking battery powered, but not 100% sure.

    you could always disconnect the harness behind the stereo...if you search, there's a thread on it somewhere with pics from the factory service manual.

    Good Idea, I plan to eventually scrap the stock wheels anyway. So that will disable the "midnight sun" light on the dash?
