Have Toyota Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
The pic shows a "shoehorn" to release the front. Anything breakable?
The dome light/reading light came out ok and I wired the self dimming mirror/compass to the white and black wires in the big connector. It worked fine until I closed the door and the ceiling light turned off. Then the mirror turned off.
Is there a wire, switched by the ignition,that I can get power from in that assembly or will I be forced to get my wires routed to under the dash.

You will not be able to tap into any wires at the dome light that are ignition feed. There either all battery on or door fed. You’ll need to tap into the yellow wire pin number five at the sliding sunroof ECU. If you do not have a sliding sunroof and this will create a problem because you will have to run wire from the fuse block.
Its been a long (and frustrating) day. Please allow me to read your reply tomorrow. Thank you.
Last question - Can I use the ground that is presently connected and just run the hot lead to the fuse block or do you recommend running both wires ?
Where do you have it grounded at? Do you have side curtain air bags?
Lets forget the ground question. I will run both wires To the fuse block area.
I don't know if I have side curtain air bags. The Highlander Plus has only "standard features", and the only options are rubber floor mats.
