sorry for the late reply I was haveing some login issues any who ahh yes I can see clearly now this all make sence just one question the 15 wires that need to be moved / cut are thoes in one plug or in all plugs by the way both trucks are 02 dc v6 3.4, and did you wire the truck to start or used the clutch start button , I ask because I was able to score a clutch start button with plug & wires that goes on the left on a ex cab taco & since the ect button will have no use after the swap could that be used wire in to start like oem truck or am I opening up a hole new mess , what did you do
Dude, did you even read
Sorry to get all school teacher on you, but download it from here:
Click the link on the title page to take you to the section for the 2002 5VZ Tacoma, or go to page 106 (same thing).
At the beginning of each section is a diagram showing you the connectors used by that particular ECU. There are typically 4 connectors. Each connector is labeled the same as it is in the factory service manual (FSM). For the 2002 V6 Tacos, these are E5, E6, E7, and E8. Each of these connectors has a different number of pins. These are numbered. Thus, any given pin has an address, like E5-16 (connector E5, pin 16). Are you with me so far?
Underneath the diagram of the connectors I have a spreadsheet where I list each pin used by the AT and MT ECUs for that model/motor. Each row explains what a given pin does for each type of ECU. The pins are sorted by connector, then pin. I'm on my fucking phone so I can't take a screen shot for you, but this should be obvious if you look at it, as the two left columns list the connector, then the pin.
The next two columns list that pin's function in the Auto ECU, followed by the colors of the wire connected to it. The next
two columns repeat this for the Manual ECU.
Here's the important part, and the whole point of the PDF: if a given pin is NOT used by one of the ECUs, the letters NA appear in red in the cells for function and wire color. And if a given pin has one function for AT but a different one for MT, that's called out, too. But you don't have to worry about that for your 2002 as all the wires are either the same or not used by the MT ECU.
Those connections listed as NA are only used by one ECU. For the 2002 V6 Taco, this means the wires labeled NA are the wires used only by the auto trans and NOT used by the manual trans, so when you convert to use the manual trans ECU, those wires can be cut in the AT harness.
Does that make sense? Let me know, because if it doesn't we're at a standstill until it does.
As for the clutch start switch down at the pedal: yes, I hooked mine up.
I have not hooked up the clutch cancel switch in the dash, nor have I hooked up my cruise control. Maybe someday, but maybe never as I don't miss them.
Seriously, let me know if the above makes sense, OK? I'm happy to help, but you have to wrap your head around this spreadsheet to do the ECU swap.
