Question about 2011 Toyota Tacoma
I have added aftermarket running boards to my 2011 Toyota Tacoma. The running boards are lighted and the general instructions that came with the running boards say they should be hooked into the dome light circuit. I am concerned that this will confuse or damage the BCM (Body Control Module). Is this a valid concern? If so, can I still add the lights and what can I do to protect the BCM or not create other electrical problems by 'confusing' the BCM?
You can connect them to your running lights,they just need to run off any power.doesnt matter where you get it from,but if you want them to come on with the lights thats what i would do.un less you power a switch an run the running boards from the switch.just more work that way,also you have to hit the switch everytime at night.

this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating
that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of
lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected
a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM,
SRS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must
now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and
"scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the
Legend of Abbreviations. ABS Antilock brake system.TCS Traction control system, TCM Transmission control module, SRS Supplemental restraint system, BCM Body control module
