Installing your bundle

1. The Body – Consists of the head unit and our custom wiring harness.

You’re Going To Install This First!

Sony Bundle Notes: Your Sony bundle will arrive with the dash kit cover detached from the body of the bundle – this will be different than shown in the video on this guide. The new Metra kit now utilizes the 4 factory 10mm bolts to secure the body of your head unit into the dash. 

  • Make all your vehicle connections as noted in the document below. We’ve drawn a red box around the vehicle connectors you’ll be using for your installation, which are 1, 3 & the OBD2 port. Vehicle connectors 2, 4 and 5 will not be used.
  • All the plugs are keyed plugs, which means they only fit their match on the Toyota side. All you’re doing is matching plugs – it may look like a lot of wires but it’s simple.

You will be using vehicle connectors 1, 3 & OBD2

  • Next, secure the backup camera connection harness labeled CAM-TY12 (connect the female side of the CAM TY12 to the factory video harness), Sirius/XM satellite connection (if applicable), AM/FM antenna connection, Sony supplied microphone and the USB retention cable connection. Make sure you leave the hazard button connection accessible as you will plug it in when you’re connecting the dash kit.
  • DO NOT POWER ON YOUR HEAD-UNIT BEFORE ALL CONNECTIONS ARE MADE. This will cause an error when the PAC module is trying to calibrate to your vehicle.

2. The Dash Kit: Your new Silver or Charcoal Metra 4Runner dash cover.

You’re going to install this second.

  • Transfer your vents, trim pieces, and install the hazard button trim to the dash kit just like in the video.
  • Small yellow clips: Please use the small yellow tab clips; supplied in the bundle, to attach to the four tabs on the back of our dash kit. They are more robust than the factory clips and hold our bundle in place better.
  • Make sure to connect the hazard button wire before installing the dash kit.
