    I had my center console out today for some cleaning and noticed three unused electrical connectors next to one that is connected. Are these for items that are offered elsewhere or am I missing something?

    Rogue,

    On mine, it's for analogue phone, cd-changer; don't know about the third one though.

    Yo Rogue - you got 2nd start and Power buttons to the right of your shifter? Are they connected if you do?

    Rogue -

    >> ...three unused electrical connectors ...

    As SJ points out, on the Lexus there is a cell phone and part of the audio system in the center console, but this does not account for unused wiring in a '94...

    I have three unused as well, tho I expect mine - or least two of them - are for the Lexus options. You might describe the connectors (number of pins, color of a couple of the wires - say, those in the corner positions). I'll compare it to mine - and to the electrical diagrams - to see what sense I can make from it.

    Anyone out there with the electrical diagrams for the Lexus?

    R -

    Probably for seat heaters or perhaps the factory "cool box" that resides in the console on Japan domestic vehicles. It has a fan and an evaporator coil and runs in conjunction with the A/C system.

    Wow-

    How cool would it be to have that console. Has anyone ever seen a resource to get one? :beer: :beer:

    Although that console would have major cool factor, not seeing it worth a grand. I guess and ARB or lesser version of a 12v fridge will do just fine.

    Do what Photoman did.

    Rip out the passenger front seat and replace it with an ARB. :G It reduces the number of arguments you get into going down the road. 8)

    An icechest packed with dryice is good for days at a time and costs but a fraction of an ARB even.

    Hey ROgue:

    DOn't know if the following will help or not, but here's three pics of what's below the center console of my '96 LX. Note the connectors, as well as the awesome 'factory sub'...:)
    I do not have the analog cell phone option.

    Here they come:
