Dome light circuit

Due to a project got bad, I need to replace the dome light/map light circuit on my 2008 Toyota 4runner that runs between the headliner and the car, down to the ECU. Some of the wires are fried and as a result I have the relay pulled to keep the car from burning.

Apparently Toyota does not make the part, but I found a wrecking yard that has a 2008 Toyota 4Runner that said I could come pull the wires I need for about $30.

Does anyone have experience doing this? It seems like a bit of a pain, but doable. I'm assuming it will be plug and play for the most part on the dashboard in of things.

Thanks for any tips!!

need to take the headliner down to trace your wires. look at some of the sound deader threads. you see the wires are glued onto the headliner. i wonder what you did that cause a small fire?

Thanks for the great ideas. I was trying to tap into the atypical wires in the dome light circuit for some silly footwell lights. When it didnít go well, I tape them off and was going to come up with a new plan. While I was working on something else, the headliner wires started smoking!👎

@Keepers12 did the positive at the dome grounded out? i only use external relay and harnesses, you just use negative trigger, i hope you read ja website on his mods, maybe you can just take your headliner out and trace the burned wires and find that short.
