Can't find/activate 2006 Toyota Sienna Parking Lights for remote
Hi, we are trying to install a remote start for our 2006 Toyota Sienna and have managed to make almost all connections save one: we are unable to find the correct wire for the parking lights. The wiring info we have suggest it is a green/black wire, however the only wire close to that description has a silver tracer running through it.
Furthermore, when we apply voltage to this wire there is no response from the lights.

Bypass the fuse? Bypassing a fuse is a fire hazard in the first place. When they worked on that everything should work normally plus the added feature. Not compromising anything. Take it back there and have it done properly or put it back the way it was, and have it done somewhere else. You work hard for your money so you deserve a good job on your car.
You will probably not need anything other than a metric socket wrench set.
Many Toyota models have disc brake calipers that will flip up or down when you remove one of the two bolts that hold the calipers on. I am not sure of the setup on the Sienna.
When you remove either the upper or lower bolt and move the caliper, you can then remove the old pads. Also, you will need to push the piston(s) back into their cylinders to give you enough space to install the new pads. A large C clamp will usually suffice to push in the pistons.
I assume that you are talking about the front (disc) brakes. Some autos still have drum brakes on the rear, and those are a different story. They require several specialty tools to remove and replace the shoes.
Remove push-on plastic nut beside parking brake. Detach side kick panel. Remove lower dash panel. Three screws, two bolts. The fuse diagram is on the back of the panel. That's for a 2000. Think it has the same body style.
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.
