OEM Smoker Kit on Amazon

OK, I know this is not a MOD and its an easy plug and play. The main reason why I went with the Smoker's Kit is that it gives me the extra USB outlets that I like to have and the harnesses are already there so no splicing nor tapping into any wire of any sort. Besides I want to keep it as easy and original as possible so that when I do other electrical mod of any sort in the future I don't have to worry about trying to figure out what's what.

Found this for $39 on amazon and it was OEM.

I think I took more time writing this up and posting the pictures than putting this kit in. NO tools required. I think replacing the cabin filter took more time and more tools. The stainless steel for the ash was just pulled off so I can use the ashtray for my coins.

Fu*ken lcd led bulbs

So the 2 light bulbs were driving me nutz. Most of us know that the LCD only take 6v bulbs not the 12v that NEO LED bulbs I bought. SO.... I bought a bag from Amazon thinking I can retro fit the bulbs on to the OEM base and get the LCD display to light up.

As you can see from the pictures I tried, The bulbs lit up when I did a preliminary test by just putting the wires on the LCD connection points. BUT when I installed in on the OEM base, it wouldn't light up. I know polarity is specific so I rotated them BUT to no avail, the screen stayed dark. I thought maybe its too long and too big so I sanded it down to that it'll fit better. (pic) WELL.... it still didn't light up. After wasting MORE time on 2 FU*KEN bulbs than any human should I gave up and bought 2 OEM bulbs from a dealership on Ebay. total cost $12 with shipping.

Feel totally dejected. You can see my failure with the LED Bulbs and had to go back to OEM. My next update is the head unit... was a success but the back up camera ... was a SHIT. Time I'll never see again.

Head Unit

Found a pretty good deal for a Scion FRS/ Toyota 86 Head Unit on eBay. Model Number PT 546-00170. It provides me what I need which would be:
1) hands free calling
2) bluetooth music streaming
3) bluetooth pod cast streaming
4) better sound from AM/FM radio
5) up to date OEM look.

I bought the OEM harness conversion kit: part number PT546-00142. on ebay
AUDIO WIRE HARNESS KIT FITS SCION IQ, TC, XB, XD OEM TOYOTA PT546-00142 | eBay

it was relatively painless and simple. I use the OEM Mic and installed it on the Windshield up the A Pillar.

The only problem I came across was the backup camera. THAT was time I'm never getting back. I'll talk about that next.

back up camera was FUBAR

So I spent 4 weekends chasing this and tried make the HU to FLIP to the camera image. BUT IT WAS a complete failure. I found and tapped into the Reverse Trigger that's under that plastic door step in the front driver side. I connect that to the second pin hole in the harness. The reverse trigger is 12 volts and it turns on when the car is in reverse. The HU recognized reverse.

Then I connect the aftermarket backup Camera and it was sending out 6 volts which is what the camera needs but for some F***EN reason the HU won't FLIP. pictures below give you an idea where everything is and what it looked like.

I even took the 4Runner to the pros who installs radios. I was ALL in at this point and had them looked at it. They were amazing in that they spent 2 hours on it and couldn't figure it out and only charged me $15. The guy who I bought it from swore it worked before.

SO long story short, its a FAILED attempt and gave up. I searched the whole internet and couldn't find the answers. PT546-00170 just wouldn't flip to the reverse image.

Hit me up if anyone has the answer. Thanks. I'll just do it the old fashion way of turning my head when I back up.
