Question about 2006 Toyota 4Runner

Parking light malfunction

I have a 2006 Toyota 4Runner and the parking lights are working funny. My parking lights are supposed to be on any time the truck is running. Yesterday when I start my truck everything is working fine, the parking lights are on and the P is lite on the dash, but as soon as I put the truck in drive the light on my dash goes out, but the parking lights on the outside of the truck are working. If the truck is running and you put on the headlights the front parking lights go out. The only thing I can think of is dealing with the remote start because in two places on the fuse block under the dash where they attached the wires for the remote start they have fuses piggy backed and what I am thinking is that one of the fuses might be blown. Am I on the right track or am I all wet?

The remote starter is the culprit. Your vehicle has a body computer, and it is not programmed to understand the installation of a remote starter. More often than not, the remote starters cause very bizarre things to happen to the body computer. Best advice: Remove the remote starter before it causes permanent damage to the body computer. A BC replacment is over $1,200 dollars.

there are over 20 park lamps in car, inside and out.
side markeres, front park lamps
all dimmable lamps inside are park too. all dead>?
then the park relay is bad (tail/park) or fuse. blown.

Parking lights on my 2000 toyota 4 runner dont work first the passenger side rear bulb burnt when I replaced it now both lights are out. looking for the wiring diagram to see what else is in the circuit...

Your parking lights do not utilize a relay. Please check ALL your fuses, sometimes one circuit is tied in with another without notification on the legend plate.If this does not solve your problem check for any loose wires at the steering column the lighting harness in particular. Have some one watch for any activity to the parking lamps while you wiggle the harness up and down and in and out.

The parking brake is adjusted by a small cable located underneath the plastic shield panels on the underside of the car. The bolts will often snap when removing them. If the parking brake is not working well it may be time to replace the cables as they are prone to stretching and freezing. You can get them through rock auto "" or at a toyota dealer. Have someone with a lift change them. It should cost no more than $250 to have it done at a garage. There is also a possibility that the calipers are malfunctioning and not adjusting properly, but this is also... best verified and addressed by a garage.
