starter relays on most of your Toyota trucks are located either in the
relay block in the engine compartment or on the driver's side junction
block. The cover for the relay compartments should be marked, "starter''
or the relay will have a part number with a suffix of 28300-XXXXX.
Simply locate the relay, pull it out, and install a new one if needed.
