    I looked all weekend but couldn't seem to find any wires in the engine bay that were only live with either accessories or ignition. Has anyone found one yet?
    I couldn't find a wire so put a fuse tap on the rear windscreen wiper fuse - it is on with ignition. Others in there are on with accessories. It's not great - it is hard to get the wire out of the box without chopping the box edges up a lot.

      No, I have connected to the sunroof +ve. I have the G switch option that will start the camera via its battery if the vehicle is knocked. My camera goes to sleep 10 seconds after turning off the ignition. It's a Navman Mivue

      • Tapping into Green wire in the DAC 4 wire plug next to the Hi Low selector can be used for switch/dash illumination. Earth wire (if required) goes to the bolt behind the triangular padded panel in the passenger foot well.

        • Hi All,
          Have just purchased a 2020 GX Prado. Looking for 12 volt power IGN power in engine bay. There is an empty plug on the radiator support near the right hand head light. That’s 6 wires going to it. Can anyone tell me what this is used for on the different models.
          Thanks

            It's possibly related to the "Headlight Cleaner" (wiper control), although there are a LOT of connectors in the engine bay. Wire colours are Bk, Bk-Wh, Grn, Lt Blue, Wh, Vio? Give us some more clues.

              I haven't found one and decided the easiest way is to pull one out from the inside cabin. In my case I did install a 2nd battery and then a relay to provide IGN power to various consumers.

              • Hi Gee Whizz, I will look at the plug again on the weekend and note down the colours.

                Can anyone confirm that the 2020 Prado does not have a radio security code ? Don’t want to disconnect the battery then find I needs code to get the radio to work

                • Hi All,
                  The plug I referenced above (near right hand headlamp colours are, white, white/black, black, green and purple. Any ideas as to what the plug would be used for on other models ?

                    That is a brilliant idea!! Running 12V accessories from the 2nd battery with the IGN power set as the Relay trigger to consumers.

                    TO THE SHED!!!
