First check bulbs,Then check to see if your truck has a trailer hitch wiring connector,Sometimes they use a "t" connector to split the wires.Check for broken or corroded wires around the connector.

Th other post is incorrect, the 2004 has LED brake lights that are part of the tail light assembly. you have to replace the whole assy. There are two screws that hold the assy in, they are both covered by white cable clips. The clips just pull off and then you can use a 10mm wrench to remove the nuts on the screws. My brake light stopped working and during the removal, the LEDs started working again, hopefully you will find the same situation as the LEDs are supposed to last for years.

SOURCE: 2008 Toyota Tacoma Excessive brake pedal

Your dealer is not lying to you.
All of the Toyota product line with ABS has this phenomenon. What Toyota has done is incorporate "Brake Force Distribution" into the braking system. What that means is there is now a sensor on the brake pedal/brake rod, going to the master cylinder. The sensor measures how FAST you press on the brake pedal. This activates the ABS pump, and supplies more brake fluid, harder, to reduce the time needed, such as a "panic stop"; the pedal travel is much longer than you are used to, because of the way they have to measure the speed of the rod being depressed. In actuality, this system is much better than the old system, as it also prevents wheel drag. It just takes a while to get used to. Really, there is nothing to worry about, I explain this same thing to my customers every week.

I hope this helps you out.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance.

Even though the relay is activated,I assumed you checked the out put?Also,You checked the voltage at the light sockets?With a meter,or test light ,check the fuse for the cluster lps,adjust them to dim,and to bright,the meter should act accordingly on the fuse.If it does not,replace the dimmer control,or head light switch,witch ever controls them.This may allow continuity to the tail lights as well.If the fuse is dead for the cluster lights,replacing the dimmer control,or head light switch will solve the problem,or,from another fuse ,supply voltage to the cluster lp fuse,one that is only hot with the key on,cause if you do this the dash lights will come on,every time you run the vehicle,day,or night.

Have you looked under the hood? There are more fuses under the hood. Is your dimmer turned down on your dash lights?

When I turn my lights on my tail lights work but when I hit my brakes the don't light up I have a 2001 vw beetle????


the brake lights don't light up or the taillights don't light up? the brake lights are brighter than the tailights so the tailights won't show up whenbrakes are applied. if no lights work when brakes are applied then check for a bad ground at the light assembly.

Why taillights will not work when I turn my lights on. However they work when I brake so i know it is not the light bulbs. Also my turn signals do not work even though my hazards do.


Tail lights and brake lights are two seperate things . There are different bulbs for each. When you put your lights on does the front parK lights com on ? Usually the are on the same circuit as the tail lights. Check for fuse first.

The three wires to the tow lights have been cut, and i cant find where in the harness they are cut can i bypass it all and just rerun new wires?


Yes. But do you have seperate yellow turn signal lights in the rear or do the turn signals work independant of the brake lights? If yes then you need to wire in a taillight converter. It takes your seperate left & right turn signals combines them with your brake lights on 2 wires instead of 3 leaving you with your normal 4 wires in total instead of 5. 1 Left turn & brake light. 1 Right turn & brake. 1 Taillight. 1 Ground. = 4 wires in total. If you dont have seperate rear turn signals just find left turn wire in taillight assembly, Right turn wire & Taillight & a good ground & you are done. On trailer plug yellow is left, green is right ,brown is tailight & white is ground.

Brake lights dont work, Turn Signals all goofy


First thing i would do is chg. the break light switch, and make sure to chk. all grounds around tailights, sometimes if there is a ground problem it will travel back thru the hot wire to get a ground, witch in turn makes everything go wackey.

If all of the wiring, fuses, bulbs, and switches are good (which is what it seems since everything else works fine including the turn signals on the passenger taillight), sounds like it may just be a bad socket. I have a somewhat similar problem on a 1986 F150.
