Question about 2007 Toyota Tacoma

1 Answer

Can't get any of my boat trailer lights working on 01 Tundra!

Bought and installed harness from Toyota. Plugged into boat trailer and nothing. Tested trailer on other vehicle and works fine. Is there a fuse that needs to be added? Any help would be appreciated!

    They will normally have an empty fuse cavity under hood with other fuses or in dash fuse panel, for towing package . Where did you wire your harness to?

    Use a test light and see what you get for power at that plug behind bumper, on the feed/incoming side. That's usually a good spot for corrosion.

I need to know if there is an after market wiring harness for my 2001 toyota tundra and also what the OEM part number would be. I need the pigtail harness that connects to each of the rear taillights,...


You don't need the OEM part, Go to ebay and find one, or any parts store. I bought one for my truck, worked great. It has all the little electronic gizmos on it you need to blink with. Snaps right in the sockets, and no wire cutting. Check it out.

check to make sure you have park light power coming out of truck connector, if you do then check power at trailer lamp,may have bad bulbs, there two filaments in a bulb one for brake/signal and thr other for park lights.

Towing light problem on wiring them up.


It looks like there could be a service bulletin to fix this.

TO: ALL TOYOTA DEALER PRINCIPALS,
SERVICE MANAGERS, PARTS MANAGERS
SUBJECT: SPECIAL SERVICE CAMPAIGN 10H
(2000 TUNDRA AND 1999 - 2000 TACOMA TRAILER TOWING WIRE HARNESS
CONVERTER REPLACEMENT)
Toyota will initiate a Special Service Campaign to replace the Toyota Trailer Towing Wire Harness
Converter (converter) on certain 2000 model year Tundra and 1999 - 2000 model year Tacoma
vehicles equipped with a genuine Toyota Trailer Towing Hitch or Bumper Hitch. This accessory
is included in the Towing Hitch Kit installed at ports (PIO) and by dealers (***); it is also sold by
dealers as an over-the-counter or service part.
An electrical short or open circuit can cause a fault in the genuine Toyota Trailer Towing Wire Harness
Converter (converter). This can cause a failure of the converter, and if a trailer is being towed at the time,
non-operation of the trailer lights. In limited cases, the converter housing could become heat-deformed.
In the case of the Tundra, the circuitry utilized in the converter was inadequate to properly manage
vehicle and/or trailer-side voltage spikes. If the converter is exposed to a voltage spike it may cause an
electrical short or open circuit within the converter.
As for the Tacoma, due to deficient waterproofing and improper installation location of the converter,
which is mounted in the lower portion of the taillight cavity of the vehicle, an electrical short circuit will
occur if water enters the converter housing.
The following vital information is provided to inform you and your staff of the campaign notification
schedule and your degree of involvement.
1. Owner Notification Letter Mailing Date
The owner notification will be conducted in two phases:
• The first phase will be launched in late August and involve vehicles equipped with port
installed (PIO) genuine Toyota Towing Hitch Kits.
• The remaining vehicle owners, whose vehicles may be equipped with a dealer installed (***)
genuine Toyota Trailer Towing Wire Harness Converter, will be notified in the second phase
to be launched in early September.
We have attached copies of the owner notification letters for your reference.
If you are contacted by an owner of an involved vehicle, who has not yet received a notification,
please verify eligibility through TDN or TIS, inspect the vehicle to assure it is equipped with the
affected part, and perform repairs as outlined in the attached Technical Instructions.

Pressing brake causing blinker issue


The trailer harness that was installed probably has a short inside the box that distributes power to the trailer pig-tail. Remove the trailer harness. You problem will be cured.

Trailer? Am I to assume that you have a trailer harness? If so, that may be where your problem lies. Disconnect the trailer harness and plug everything else back together.
