Hello All,

Has anyone attempted to install the MIT LED Courtesy Lights? I have the diagram but not sure where to connect the wires. Anyone have the wiring diagram for these lights?

Here's a link to 2015 diagram

http://www.the12volt.com/installbay/forum_posts.asp?tid=142667


It only has negative for dome light supervision. You should be able to connect positive lead of puddle lights to constant 12v and negative as stated per diagram. The negative will be supplied to the puddle lamps when the dome lights are switched on and in turn activate the puddle lamps. The diagram also has reverse connection point. I imagine the puddle lamps light up when shifted into reverse??? Let us know how u make out as I may want to do this mod.

gray door trigger negative
yellow is accessory/ignition wire
black is ground

when you put the key on it will turn off the puddle light(yellow accessory/ignition wire)

red: Reverse signal (same signal used for triggering backup camera)
gray: door trigger negative
yellow: accessory/ignition wire
black is ground

Those two light light up on both side of the car. Quite useful

I have been considering these for some time, however they aren't inexpensive, and I want to make sure that I can install them. This info helps. I am a little confused by your 'backup camera' image however. How good is the light coming from the new lights on the mirrors? I also assume that they would go on when you unlock the doors using the remote.

Hi. I am not sure what you mean on how good is the light. It a led projected toward middle of the car
1. When you in the car with engine on. The light turned on when you turn off the engine (same as internal dome light)
2. When you are outside the car with door locked. The light turn on when you unlock the key with remote or the smart key is detected in range (same as internal dome light)
3. While driving, when you put gear in reverse, the light also turned on.



If you can search Chinese, you can try to search below Chinese string on google image
感應式照明輔助燈
you can add "Toyota" or "Rav4" in front of the string

Also, Below is a quick video on the light (Not from me)

Thanks for the pictures. My wife has limited vision and these lights will really help when getting into the car at night. I will order a set in the next few days. I was interested in the coverage of the light beam on the ground and your pictures helped. Thanks.

So it won't fit? All RAV4 in Taiwan comes with heated/signal light side mirror. Some with additional BSM. All fit's fine.
Sorry if it didn't fit
