Looking for suggestions before I cut and regret.

took off the panel that screws on and it is solid behind the panel, is it ok to cut out the whole panel or will it make something too weak? Cutting out the whole panel seems like the easiest way to get to the pre wired plugs behind the dash

I haven't been able to really get close to the pre wired plugs behind the dash to see how to use them, they are fairly big plugs are they set up to just hook single wires to or is there a plug i need to buy kinda like a car radio plug to wire in a stereo?

I used a 5-6" diameter hole saw so there's plenty of room for wiring. No issues here.

I finally got time to really mess with it and just got the pre ran plugs pushed through the toggle switch panels. Its pretty cool how plug and play they are i wish they would have wired up the jumpers though for toggle switches with lights on them.

Remove the the top fender on passenger side pretty simple and then you get decent access to the pre wired plugs!
Just FYI you can pop the 3 female connectors out of the plastic plug 1 is 12v switched, 1 ground, 1 is 12v power to your accessory with small eye glass screwdriver and make pigtails 1 end male spade and other end female spade for your switch to just plug into the females you removed from factory plug. Use a 12v test light to know what is what then they are all the same! Then heat shrink and or wire loom to finish it! I did that to 3 of the pre wired plugs! Works excellent and now easy to work on as well for future!

@Sapper12

would you be able to explain this in a little more detail or provide pictures? I just bought a couple 5 pin rocker switches and would like to have them light up accordingly and from what you’re saying this will allow them to do that,

Thank you

Joekai12, just plug the OEM accessory switch plug into the switch and most switches will be illuminated whenever you have the ignition on. The only time you should need to pull the wires out of the accessory switch plug would be if you have a non-standard switch.

For example, I wired my chase light with an on-off-on rocker, so I could switch if on full time or use it like the third brake light on a car. The accessory connector provided on the XX would not be compatible with that circuit.

Yeah I have a non standard switch, and it is supposed to light when key is on then light up a second light when turned on

Just remove the hood on front of vehicle to access these plugs. You will find they don't really work even after installation of the fuse at the panel between the seats.

My horn switch does exactly that, though the "HORN" segment does dim when I'm honking and the icon lights up.

Hmmm. I've used two of the circuits and they work perfectly.

I used a Fluke multimeter and each pin to ground no voltage on Acc B1/ B2 /B3 after installing fuses in Acc B1 /B2 /B3 at fuse block between the seats.

Install the switch on the respective rocker switch block along with the fuses. That rocker switch, in addition to the fuses between the seats are required to send power to the 2 pole power connector.

I tried installing the switches and fuses, did not work, have no voltage at fuses ACC B1 / B2 / B3. Tried swapping the relays between them as service manual suggested, still does not work. Checked all fuses for voltage they are good, except "B" circuit, no voltage.

How are you at reading circuit diagrams?
