Laser LED sliding door courtesy light?!


Recommended Posts

Anyone else have this on their Alphard?

I collected car from dealer yesterday, didnt know it had this, it was only when I took the kids out for a 1st drive at night that we were suddenly greeted by an illuminated animated Alphard logo on the step and blue ground illumination!

 

I only have it on the pavement/passenger side -would love to know if aftermarket or OEM to get for drivers side too.

Hi Chris,

 

That's a feature I haven't seen before. Pretty neat too.

I'll be watching this topic as I would also like to know OEM or a distributor option.

Is yours a V or G ?

I have a 2010 Vellfire, and have this on my passenger side, I had assumed it was aftermarket as someone has butchered the front door pockets to fit lights to the pocket, and blue puddle lights... Why de-pin 2 cables, and drill a 3mm hole when you can drill a 20mm one?!

that sucks - this one does seem well fitted - I have not seen any butchered trim near it.

 

Mine looks like yours, shines Vellfire though, as the trim is a `clip over` affair I assumed it was aftermarket.

 

My door cards have holes drilled in the underside of the door pockets which you cant easily see unless lying on the ground - where the puddle lights are installed, and then there is a hole in the side of each font door pocket for some led strip lights to light up the door pocket when the door is open which is not really my thing, my biggest bugbear is that they drilled a massive hole just to fit the plug on the end of the cable through, when the cable itself is miniscule. 

 

I have the drivers door card off at the moment to fit a Mirror folding module (a right PITA finding the Toyota plug pins to fit so I can do a neat job) and I am very tempted to to strip out the aftermarket lights. There are more lights in the footwells etc as well so I would have to use blind  Grommets GrommetsGrommets to close off the holes, or perhaps I will strip the fancy electronics out and just fit some practical white LED's.

So they fitted extra footwell lights on top of the warm white ones that are standard on Vellfire? that is annoying - the most painful thing I had so far , is the rearfog that was fitted - they drilled a hole and fitted fogswitch next to the stop/start engine button instead of using blank plate of which there was 4 available, and they fitted some 10pence piece sized LED light by drilled into the retroreflector in the bumper.

 

The 12v supply for the fog they tapped into one of the headlight fuses in the engine bay, and the speedo convertor they tapped into the drivers side fusebox.

 

I have ordered and waiting for a proper indicator stalk that has the extra rear fog selector position on it, I have fitted the relay in the correct place in the passenger side fuse box, and the fuse is already in place on the drivers side - the fog indicator light is already in the dash console.

The actual connector for the fog lights themselves is located attached to the rear rightmost sonar sensor, you can see it by removing the rear driver light cluster.

I bought fog lights that replace the reflectors, and will add new reflectors (for MOT) to the mudguards

Humm, I'm not sure to be honest. I haven't noticed warm white ones, just the stupid blue things which are round and in the sides of the footwell trim, there is a small on off button under the steering wheel trim, although it doesn't seem to be all off when its off....   Maybe they have swapped the standard ones for blue, but not hopeful. Hopefully over Christmas I will have the time to look around the beast properly, and read the manual.

 

I didn't realise there was an indicator stalk with fogs on, that's a good shout, mine had a generic fog switch fitted to one of the blanks, I ordered a proper fit fog switch for the blank, but haven't fitted it yet.

 

As it seems like I might be popping a fair bit of trim for this and that, I have put a set of trim removal tools on my Xmas list :)  have a tow bar to fit before I go LPG and I want to swap the 100v stuff for something useful.

 

I cant remember how my fog light has been done, it works, and nothing horrific externally to see, but I appreciate the info. I do hope they haven't drilled into the back of a reflector.

Stalk I ordered from AMAYAMA is https://www.amayama.com/en/find?q=84140-42080

 

Not cheap, but then again, the switch to fit in the blank slot was a tenner.

 

The indicator stalk that is already fitted is part 84140-42070, both parts are listed in the toyota parts EPC (which you can use online, AMAYAMA is basically a online catalogue that uses the toyota EPC.

 

The switch under the trim? is that actually on the steering shroud or next to the OBD port?

Good to know about AMAYAMA, thanks. 

 

It is a little round switch on the shroud, will take some pics of all this `interesting` stuff soon.  I ripped out a speed trap radar detector that was on the dash as it went off and said something Japanese any time you went past any lights that had traffic sensing. Next on my priority list is the reversing beep, I know I am in reverse because I am going backwards. :)
