Diagnostic Port

Hello folks,

Been a while, but I figured I'd share a task I recently did to my yota from a squirrel invasion I had here a few months back.

Seems as though I didn't drive the truck enough and a bunch of hoodlum squirrels decided to take over. Luckily, the truck didn't burn down as I drove it with this mess under there without even knowing it was there, until I smelled some smoldering leaves when I got out of the truck.

Anyone else have this issue ?

Wife says to put a bag of used cat poop litter under the hood to discourage them. Doesn't sound safe to me...

lol

Found a 4 runner with the same diagnostic port, in a boneyard, and swapped it over. You can see that I had to clean out the junk grease in the new one after I pulled all the wires out of it. My aluminum sandwich wrap worked well for a while as the squirrel stole the cover off the port.. Started to break the original squirrel port apart with my dremmel. Some suggested I use the lisle tools to remove the pins, but I had more fun using my dremel as I have wanted to use the new tool heads for a while now.


Took about an hour and a half start to finish.

More pics.

Went through each pin, and inserted in the same location on the new (used) connector, as the 4 runner had different locations and wiring than my hilux

Fun project. back to OEM
