I bought my 2021 Highlander XLE Hybrid in January but it does not have Kick Sensor. Can I install one? Where can I find it and how much does it cost? Thank you!
It costs more than what I expected. Thank you. I will not do it even if possible.
Thank you for the info. I will check with Toyota dealer when I bring it it for the 5K miles service next month.OP's Highlander MIGHT have the kick sensor wring harness already, just needs to buy the missing parts.
Only way to know is to take the rear bumper cover off to get to the wiring harness.
I would NOT be surprised if OP can add the OEM kicksensor, as two people have done to their RAV4 in this post.
I bet the Highlander OEM bumpers are all made to accommodate the kick sensor wire, irregardless of the vehicle having that option or not.
Thank you for the information. There will be risk than benefit if I do.The dealer will MOST likely say no. It was never priced as an "accessory" at the time of purchase. Therefore MOST likely NOT offer it as an accessory AFTER purchase. A better dealer MIGHT entertain it.
You will be best served to DIY, if you have some mechanical aptitude.
If you can't DIY, I would call 4xr shops to do a lot of modifications to Highlanders. Tell them what you want (install the OEM kicks sorry wiring to the car). This would be EASY for them to do vs the 4x4 mods. This of course assumes your Highlander has the harness already there, and just waiting for the kick sensor wiring to plug into.
