Still Enviri. He swung by my house today and we wired up the turn signals. He had the remote control mirrors working, since they were pinned the same as the Yaris, but needed a hand getting the turn signals wired.

Rearranging some stubborn pins, I managed to have my pin extraction tool snap and jab about 1/4" deep into my finger tip. I was dripping blood everywhere. I had to make a compression bandage with electrical tape and paper towel to get it to stop.

I think bloodletting will be part of the official DIY. On 09+ cars, one can save time (and donate blood) by using two extra wires in the mirror harness. On 08 and older cars a pair of wires will have to be run from the mirror connector through the flexible rubber boot that brings the wires into the door.

So, in the 08- world, pin removal is not necessary. In the 09+ world, the two extra pins have to be reversed. This can either be done by popping and swapping the two pins, or by simply snipping and reconnecting the two wires.

We did the drivers side door on his car with the pin swap method, and then I broke my pin extraction tool on the passenger side door, so we just did the snip and flip on that side.

Thanks CT. I think my biggest issue for the moment is trying to understand what from the original assembly must be intact to mate to the Yaris. In this case an 07 HB. I see some for sale off a 10 model XD but I can't be sure if the plastic connectors are damaged. What I see is the single connector I guess to make the mirrors function remotely but not any other wires to make them work ie: with power on and off. I guess I am asking are there more wires in there that I'm not seeing. Or maybe I should just wait for the write up. Might miss the deal though....ah well. Anyway, thanks again for your efforts.

Door Connections:

There is a single 5-wire connector on both the Yaris and xD/xB mirrors. Three wires are used for the mirror movement and the other two are for the turn signal. On the Yaris mirrors, that connector only wires in 3 positions.

The picture below is of the Scion mirror connector. The red black and white wires are the motion wires (and they directly mate to the wires with the same functions {but different colors} on the Yaris).

The blue (ground) and yellow (+12 V) are the turn signal wires. Because the indicator is an LED, the polarity is important (i.e. they won't light if you reverse them). On the 06-08 Yaris, the connector on the door has no wires in the positions of the blue and yellow, so you must connect a wire to each and run it through the door, through the rubber boot, and into the car under the kick panel. You have to two wires, since the sheet metal of the door is actually not grounded to the rest of the chassis.

Mirror Connector - Wires.jpg


On the 09+ Yaris, there is a violet wire in the position of the blue mirror wire and a white/black stripe wire in the position of the yellow wire. These wires run through the door to the kick panel connector, and then dead-end at a junction connector way up under the dash. Since they save the hassle of running the two wires through the door, it is worth while to use them. The two wires have to be reversed at the connector though, since the white/black stripe wire is grounded at the kick panel.

In this picture of an xD mirror plugged into the connector on a 2010 the yellow wire (+12 to the LED) is connected to the white/black stripe wire (chassis ground). You can flip the blue and yellow wires by popping the pins or by simply cutting the wires and reconnecting them to the opposite wire (as shown in the second picture below):

Door - Connector.jpg

Door Connector - Blue and Yellow Wires Flipped.jpg


Kick Panel Connections:

Access the kick panel by simply pulling up the door skid plate and then pulling the kick panel cover straight back.

09+:

Connect a wire to the violet wire shown below on the drivers side (note that there are two violet wires on that connector, so insure that you are on the correct one). Run the wire up to the under dash fuse panel area.
Left Kick Panel - Violet Wire.jpg

Connect a wire to the violet wire shown below on the passenger side (note that the passenger side connector only has one violet wire). Run the wire under the dash across to the under dash fuse panel.
Right Kick Panel - Violet Wire.jpg

On the 09+ the ground connection is already complete with the connection of the blue wire to the white/black stripe wire.


06-08:

Run your door wires to the kick panel area. Connect the wire that is connected to the mirror's blue wire on either side to the 10mm ground bolt in the kick panel using a 1/4" ring terminal. Run the other wire on either side to under dash fuse panel.


Fuse panel Connections (all years):

Connect the left side wire to the light green wire in connector 4B-14.

Connect the right side wire to the dark green wire in connector 4B-31.
