Question about 1988 Toyota Pickup
I have a 1988 Toyota pickup 4x4, 22re, 5 speed. Brake light and battery light come on at the same time. Seems to shut off when engine is at high rev but will come back on.
Having the same problem myself, don't know if it is wiring problem or not. Cleaned the battery terminals; seemed to help temporarily but may be alternator problem. The truck has an oil leak and I'm wondering if that may be affecting the belt. I love the truck but it sucks at night when the the headlights dim. Will let you know if I figure it out.

Had the same problem with battery and brake light coming on, every couple of months. When it would come on, that would let me know that the next time I tried to start the truck, I would need a jump. Changed battery, alternator, coil, ignition module, fuses, fuse relays, replaced alternator plug, still did not fix the problem. I finally took it to an auto electrical shop and $400 later for that visit. It turned out according to them, and so far they are correct, was just a matter of wrong size battery frying out the alternator.
