    Sorry missed this. If you have radio switches you just have to buy the blue tooth switches and cable. Also you need the interface to wotk with aftermarket radio. Factory radio if the radio is capable of it. You would just need the bluetooth switches and cable. Every thing else is already there.

    Thanks. I’m searching for the cable and switch right now. I think I need to use the SWI-CP5 from PAC for the Sony XA100. Most guys are using the SWI-RC but under the detail it lists will not work with the headunit I’m planning on running :(

    Green to new blue=horn
    green power is new wire it goes to a dash illumination bulb positive side. Doesn't go through original harness plug.
    Brown to new Yellow wire
    New black CC wire will go to original red wire
    New CC blue wire will go to the left over wire.

    NASA We got a problem........... Just a few MAJOR issues''''''''''' 1#
    Did a little home - Work , should of did a little more.!! Got a chance to pull, the bag, steering wheel & CS. today. Wow, what a diff Toyota Makes. hah'''''''
    shitttttttttt-- well maybe -- Wulf Banned, Jake was right on the 1st page of your write up, for the Very Old Tacoma's, about the whole steering stock, needs to be change, the whole enchilada . Well when I look at the CS, like I told you it looks like the new CS will fit, we look at the screws holes, looked like a match. Well it does, and the screw holes all match up. !! BUT''' the my Old CS, the back side is totally flat. The New CS, has edges, and a few dimples. It won't lay flat on the Steering module. Those edges, and dimples, are meant for your guys, newer, steering modules, it looks like they insert latch into it, and secure it some way. I bought the whole Steering Turning module for a Tundra, when I was up in Sac last week getting my Steering wheel. Like the Tacoma's, got it cheap to use the cancel cam just in case I have to abort this project'
    So I laid the CS on its back into it, bingo, it looks like it just holds the CS in place?. So that's my first Bump.... Options ???? 1. Can I grind down the back of that new CS, to make it flat>? just plastic, won't hurt the function of the CS.????

    Ok'''''' Shall go on ''''''''' hahah O'well, lesson Learn. 2# Problem, kind of relates to the first one, but here it is.

    Cancel Cam. Pull the CS, and then pulled the Cancel cam/ Spring out, bingo easy. Had the new CC waiting right there on the work bench. dammmmmmm, new Cancel cam looks pretty short?, compared to mind. Inserted the spring, into the new CC, then into the steering wheel shaft. to short.? The spring goes in first, made up for most of the deep hole/ space. not sure if it supposed to work that way. Now its getting to where this project might Crash & Burn ...........shaaaaaaa'' here is a few photos. Any suggestion's ? would gladly be appreciated ''

    You can smooth the back of the clock spring off.

    I left spring off. Get the clock spring on and see how it looks.

    Spring goes in first. On mine i couldnt use the spring. There wasn't enough room with new cancel cam. You have to remeber with the new steering wheel the CC stays behind CS and catches slots. Were the old one came clear through clock spring and caught the back of the steering wheel.

    You checked wires going to the switch. I need you to check wires going into the dash this time.
