    I don't have this OEM switch but it appears that, at least schematically, the circuit looks like this:

    Camry Switch ----->To
    Pin 1 -----------------> Ground
    Pin 2 -----------------> Pin 2 (Gray wire) of the existing dimmer switch
    Pin 3 -----------------> Pin 5 (Red wire) of the existing dimmer switch
    Pin 4 -----------------> HV ECU, Connector H14, Pin 27

    Perhaps Mustang can confirm this.

    Has anyone used this method of using the Headlight "Highbeam" Flasher switch?


    Headlight Flasher EV


    Another elegant way to install EV Mode is to use the headlight flasher. This is an even easier installation requiring no special circuit and only one wire. To do the installation leave the bottom cover of the steering column off when you retrieve the connector pins. Now, put one of the connector pins on both ends of a strand of wire. Plug one end into the ECU just as with the standard EV button. Thread the wire behind the dash but then pull it up along the steering column. Pull out the purple wire from the flasher plug and insert your EV wire into the now open slot. There is no need for an additional ground as the flasher is already grounded. Once reassembled you have a reversible and invisible EV mode. Your headlights will still flash when the headlight stem is pulled toward you while the headlights are on. You just won't be able to flash the lights when your headlights are turned off. EV is engaged or disengaged by pulling the headlight stem toward you.


    You will find it on the last page of this PDF vs. installing a separate switch.
