Question about 2004 Toyota Tacoma
Everything but my taillights work. my turn signals and brake lights both work but not my tail lights
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.

SOURCE: right brake light out 2004 Prius
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.

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.

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?
