    Yeah but if you don't have a lot of knowledge of electrical it's going to be pretty tough for you.

    You are going to need to run from combination meter through a relay trigger to 4wd ecu then output through your switch. Other side of switch through relay with that output to the locker. Then 4 wires from the locker to the 4wd ECU.

    If your rear end is locked all the time right now, that's not really good to be driving around on the street with. Are you sure it's locked? without an input signal the solenoid should not be energized ???

    I CAN NOT USE THE STOCK TOYOTA SWITCHES WITH MY KIT I DO NOT USE RELAYS OR THE COMPUTER, STOCK SWITCHES SEEM TO BE S.P.S.T. ON/OFF I USE D.P.D.T. ON/ON SWITCHES


    As this says on the link to that product, pretty self explanatory that it's not the way to go, more like a disclaimer that he really doesn't understand the electronics involved in the operation if he is selling this for a 2005 and up. For previous years I can see how this would work no problem, but pre 2005 had integrated 4w module, not stand alone. But do whatever you like. I don't suggest it.

    Yeah that's my point too, agreed. By integrated, I meant it was part of ecm, not a stand alone module that's separate like they are now.
