    Getting ready to install my switches, I pulled the blanks out, BUT the blank by the mirror controls has a blue plug in, in it. What is this for?

    our trucks come prewired for most of the accessories. It could be for traction control or some other option.

    If it came pre wired i guess that knocks out a few steps if i wanted to put a rear locker in my TRD Sport?

    :laugh: it is prewired, not pre-mechanized. I don't know if that is the locker switch or not. I'm sure someone around here knows better than me.

    here are the switches on my 09 DC TRD OR. on the bottom: one is for the traction control, one is for the downhill assist and the other turns off the side curtian airbags.....they go off if you are at a certain angle, so you can turn them "off" and then they will only deploy on impact

    Edit: longbow...it looks like that is the traction control that has the blue plug in it.
