84970-60070 should be the console switch for all GXs. This gets you Crawl Control.

MTS requires changing a module behind the glove box. For '10-'13 that PN is 859A1-60020

The 14+ it may be 859A1-60040..

A few notes:
• Remove the side padded trim next to console
• Remove padded trim on dash. Wood piece stays in place.
• Pop out the end piece on dash but don't remove. The small end piece between the dashboard and door
• Remove silver visible screws at top of glovebox. There are 4 IIRC
• Pop out the three screw covers in glove box and remove the larger screws behind these
• I didn't remove the knee airbag assembly but I remove side bolts so it could drop down some. You will need to pull on it a little to get some of the plastic clips to release.
• There are two bolts that hold the glove box in at bottom. The left side has a small cover you will want to remove.

When you finally can't figure out why it isn't coming out there are two plastic clips holding it in on the top. I didn't fully remove it.

• I unscrewed the driver support computer first with it's single bolt to test out with the new module. Connector came out pretty easily.

Some chaos pics of glove box out.

I might have to pass that retrofit torch onto someone else :-) I'll probably look into the camera add-ons or even the auto-HighBeams though.

I took my old switch a part a little bit. Just three screws removes the cover. If someone want to keep switches fairly stock for model without suspension adjustments you could deface your new switch and likely remove the plastic switches. The ON/OFF button for CC will still come through the blank area of the current DAC setup.

For those that don't feel comfortable doing this I don't see any reason one couldn't find an independent shop to do the work for them. The recalibration procedure is actually an item a shop would have to do anyway if you had a failed skid ECU or master cylinder. They don't need Techstream either but it does make process easier.

This guy made a simple button with wires to make the process easier to do with the OBD method.

Is this the method you used to re-calibrate?

A number of used ones with package I can see in Canada but I notice VINs are absent from Canadian ads. That doesn't help :-(

Made an inquiry to one for sale in Victoria... we'll see if they can get me the VIN.

Got a VIN: JTJJM7FX5E5069750
It is a '14 or '15.
I'm gonna look as well but info here if you want to see if we can cross reference a the onboard Driver Support Computer part number.

Might try it out a little tomorrow or next weekend...... sent the VIN out to a Toronto dealer to see if they can provide me with info on computer from that VIN.

EDIT:
Running that VIN through that Russian parts site.

It came back with an 040

Acrad, First of all, thanks for the efforts and sharing. This is a wonderful mod and certainly made GX a true off-road SUV as it should be. One more question as you after swapping out the drive support controller, did dynamic guide line show up in your 12' GX? or the dynamic line is only for model year 14+? But either way, I will definitely want to do the mod.

Unfortunately no dynamic lines on my '12. This may be something that shows up on the '14+ though.
