Question about 2004 Toyota Tacoma

Open Question

2004 tacoma right dash light and left rear brake light out.

Hi there, you look to be the man on this subject. I have an 04 two door standard tacoma. The light on the right half of the dash is out and I think is a electrical/wiring issue. Reason: when it first happened i knocked on the dash and the light came back on. Now I have found the left rear brake light is out as well, I checked the bulb and the fuse box on the kick panel and all is well. What could it be?

    I have the same problem with the right dash light on my 2004 tacoma, & when I hit the dash it comes back on. Looking for a solution.

    When you tap on the dash, the filaments of a "burnt-out" bulb can "weld" themselves back together. Removal of the inst cluster is easy. Remove the screws that holds the trim on, and then remove the 4 screws that holds the cluster to the dash. Pull the cluster towards you, and remove all of the wiring connectors. Then pull the cluster out, and change ALL of the bulbs. Why do this again when the other side burns out next week? The wiring connectors only fit back in "one way", no need to worry about putting them back wrong.

    Re the brake light: I would check for power at the bulb socket. and check for a good ground on the white w/ black trace wire. If no power, and a good ground, look at the harness connector under the bed for corrosion. Let me know what you find.

SOURCE: 1999 Toyotal Camry brake lights are out.

You have a ground issue.Current from another circuit is running through the lights to get to ground. this causes them to burn out quickly.You need to do a real detailed visual check.A good component wiring diagram and component locator is a requirement here.

SOURCE: rear lights not working

Toyotas sometimes have multiple power wires coming off of the battery to fuse blocks. One of these wires may be broken. Electrical schematics are available on-line or in repair manuals. If you don't have one, go to the library and look in the repair manual section.

Turn signal is staying on continuously and brake light goes off


check the bulbs or the sockets for damage
or the wrong bulb
you are getting feedback through the wiring
and that lights up the dash
