How do i remove the ceiling instrument panel...it doesnt look like its going to pop out easy. I'm trying to wire up my sirius receiver.
These (Option Code N1) do not come with the homelink option.KingKyu said:Does anybody know if the optional auto dimming mirror (Option Code N1) come with a garage door opener feature aside from the compass. There seems to be buttons underneath the mirror. Are these for something else?
I just placed an order for a SPORT V6 today ($500 above invoice). I will have the dealer add the auto dimming mirror if it has the opener feature.
Button(s) just turns on/off the auto dimming feature and compass.Improve your driving comfort with an Auto-dimming Mirror, built-in sensors detect headlight glare and automatically dim the mirror to reduce eyestrain. The digital compass provides directional information at your fingertips. Outside temperature feature is available on certain models. See a Toyota Parts Professional for more information.
I think I used the 12 - 10 ga. (dark blue) one. I'll double check when I get home.sstarrx3 said:Thanks, that is exactly what I bought this morning at Home Depot. The package I bought had mixed sizes, what size did you use?
It shouldn't, unless this causes a problem (that can be directly connected to this install). I think this is how Toyota does it also, but not 100% sure. Just from info I can find in places...KingKyu said:So does splicing the wires void the waranty? I was thinking of making a cable assembly that will go in between the built in connectors and making cuts on this instead.
I love this idea because any break in the insulation is an opportunity for corrosion to start. If you find a source for the connector that mates to the unused one under the switch panel, or the pair that go inline with the sunroof connector, please let us all know.I was thinking of making a cable assembly that will go in between the built in connectors and making cuts on this instead.
I will. Right now I'm still waiting for my V6 Sport to arrive. I don't have an actual sample to look at so it's hard for me to find the connector mates. Possible places I will look at is newark.com or digikey.com. I will try to see if Toyota parts department can give me a part no. also, or better yet maybe they sell those things.I love this idea because any break in the insulation is an opportunity for corrosion to start.

Finally got my Homelink/Temp/Compass mirror and Mud Guards installed yesterday evening. The mirror works nice. I decided to pass on the hassel of setting up the Temperature since the RAV has this already, and the fact that I didn't pay for that feature it was a freebie. The autodimmer and compass work great. The temp says 'OC' all the time under the direction indicator. If anybody asks what it means, I will just say 'OverClocked', that this is a specical addition RAV4 :lol: The mud guards were pretty easy to install as well. The instructions make it sound much harder than it was. Took all of 40 minutes to do all four wheels. Drill goes through that fiberglass like hot butterJohnny said:You should feel very guilty :lol: & send me the difference in price.sstarrx3 said:I ordered and was charged $183 shipped for the 50-GENK40, but they shipped me the 50-GEN51, which should be $270 shipped. Should I feel guilty :twisted:
Let us know how easy the install was.
