Check under neath to see that the unit is actually moving into 4wd. It needs to do this to move a micro swith to tell you that somthing has happened. what you appear to have is one light telling you that the power is available but the second light saying that nothing has moved as required a fact born out buy not having 4wd

    I do not know but I would be looking for a small unit around 1'' (25mm) dia screwed into the side of the transfer case with 1 or two wires attached. Check with a dealer and they will be able to point out where it is

Will I damage or confuse the BCM (Body Control Module) in my 2011 Toyota Tacoma by adding an additional lighting circuit ?

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.
