The rectangular brackets are removable, so I won't be using them.
I kinda like the rectangles, with some nice SS flat head screws....
This is a mod I cant wait to do when its warmer out!

I just finished this mod today. I tapped my add a circuit to the stock 12v power outlet #1 fuse slot. Now when i plugged my gps to the outlet i just added, it turns on even without the key. It was hot all the time. I find it weird as it is tapped to the stock power outlet. Its not supposed to be hot all times

Just finish installing the 12power, dual usb & headrest dvd system. Here are some picsImageUploadedByAG Free1402106856.569841.jpgImageUploadedByAG Free1402106874.505349.jpgImageUploadedByAG Free1402106890.600782.jpgImageUploadedByAG Free1402106907.505464.jpgImageUploadedByAG Free1402106922.495061.jpgImageUploadedByAG Free1402106938.946171.jpg


The DVD screen siZE is: 10in. with 1024x600 resolution. Total cost for everything is around $300. I need the DVD systems due to my nieces & nephews. Can't survive driving the kids for 2+ hours without them fighting.

DVD info can be found here:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It took around 2 hours to install everything!

Howdy All,

I'm a new Rav4 owner. Picked up a 2013 3 weeks ago with 850 miles on it (older couple bought it and parked it in the garage... great find for me and great price). I did trade in my Magnum RT which made me sad... but have to change with the times.

Anyway, I just finished doing this install. One thing I can't have enough of, are power outlets. I was really surprised something this new only had one 12v outlet on the dash, plus the USB plug on the dash. Plus both turn off when the ignition.

I did install two in the back of the consul and have them always on. It was a piece of cake. Ran the wire up the consul and out the passenger side grommet behind the glove box. Plenty of room to work with. Ran the wire in the engine compartment right up next to the firewall at the top along with the other wire bundle over to the battery. I have an in-line fuse by the battery, plus each plug has their own fuse.

Right now I only have two but ran a large enough wire to add a third inside the glove box if I so choose to later.

My wife and I have a 2 year old who does not like being in the car. Unlike justcurios above, this kid will scream after 2 minutes, let alone 2 hours Need to have power for the tablet we have for him to watch stuff on.

Thanks for reading!

Thanks for the how to!

Wow I just bought a 2014 and after owning a 2011 Rav 4 couldn't believe there were only two 12 v outlets in the 14! I also like one 12v outlet powered all the time for various reasons and had plans of installing one in center console like in my 11 that I converted to powered all the time. I was trying to get the center console out to accomplish this when my search turned up this awesome forum! Anyhow I'd never noticed the back snapped off and installed one outlet in no time! Thanks again for doing the write up!

Finally did this today. I tapped into the 10A sunroof fuse for this one and strangely they are hot all the time. Why would that be? The sunroof still is not.

Maybe there is a relay after the fuse...?
