    No, the switch is non model specific as per my supplier, it’s just for Toyota Models in the European and JDM market, some USDM models do have them, but very hard to find. You mentioned that they are Chineese knock offs of the original OEM Toyota and I asked my supplier SoungYoung Inc. and they said that they are duplicates. I did not know that. They are pretty good copies and they work great. The buttons are simply a resistor value each time you press any button, you can actually program them to do whatever you want it to do. The clock spring connector is from a Sequoia and it has extra pins to add more wires if you need to. I am also trying to retrofit this Chineese stalk below, for the extra buttons of the “AUTO” lights on feature and the fog light switch.

    The auto function might be a bit of a headache to get working. But if you want wiring diagrams of whatever it was for ask

    It’s a Chineese Replacement, I just searched for Toyota Stalk with “Foglight” Option and the “Auto” on the stalk, I got it off AliExpress. I would have to check for their part number. It’s not actually a direct bolt on. But, you can make it work. Also, I have not finished the “Auto” part yet, and I am currently working on the Foglight switch part. I will keep you posted.

    I actually can help you do the auto section really easy I have it on my truck now and it works great I would just love to use this stalk as a switch instead of the toggle it comes with.
    if you get a DEI 545t it will give you a full auto light function that uses a light sensor so the lights will automatically come on when its dark

    Here is the wire diagram the switch I circled is the one you would interface with the stalk!

    I just started looking into this using that exact kit! So you're happy with it, no problems? Install looks relatively straight forward at least on paper.

    I just bought an is300 headlight stalk which has the auto headlights. Looks like it might be a direct fit unlike the one just posted previously. I'll be able to confirm Monday when it arrives.

    Let us know because it would mean that we directly swap these dated stalks on the gen 1 Tacomas

    It actually arrived today! I'll try it out tomorrow and update. If it fits, maybe we can start a auto headlight install thread!

    I don’t think he went any further with those original stalks because the IS300 stalks are plug and play

    1st Gen Taco 4x4 SR-5 13th one off the line in Santa Clara May 13 1995. Many mods to it, still showing her force.
    K&N Filter, Boral Exhaust, Posi Trac, CBI DIY front Bumper, Mod front grill, Mod HD lites, Icons mod Front, Rear, & Stero System 7 inch Alpine, with mic, and USB, ipod,, New Carpet, New Suntop Camper shell, Carpet kit rear, Yak roof rack, Rola Cargo basket, Rock Lights,
    Help on Fog Light Mod, with no fog lights.
    I have a Sequoia stalk, has the fog light switch. No DRL, switch. Like to use the fog light switch for another set of lights, very low watts/amp. On a Sequoia stick there are to wires, LFG wire # 10, BFG wire #11. Since this is a 1st gen Taco, I have no Fog relay, or a connection into my main ECU, older truck. The LFG # 10 wire is connected into the ECU, not sure what do do with that wire. The BFG # 11 wire is going into the Fog relay . If I use just a simple relay, how would the connections look like? fog light diagram.jpg
