    I just installed this light.
    https://www.amazon.com/Spyder-Auto-...0605&sr=8-8&keywords=spyder+tail+light+tundra
    Unfortunately I revered the red and black plug on one of 3 plugs. It's the one that comes on with DRL and when headlights are on. Its the white "C" lights. Since then my fog light, DRL, and Lic plate lighst are not working. Headlights, turn lights, brake lights, turnlights work. But FOG, DRL, Lic plate light and rear "C" shaped light is Not.. Did i burn a relay? I checked ever single fuse in the fuse box but don't know how to check if any relays are burned? PLEase HELP!!

    Correction. DRL is working. Lic Plate, tail light when you turn on the Headlight is not working. I checked the fog light relay. It checked out. Is there a switch that could be burned?

    I would instal the stock ones back and see if the problem still follows. If it does, then it'll be time for some more troubleshooting. If the stock ones work, then either got a bad set of lights or burnt something when you installed the wrong wires.

    Is there a secondary relay somewhere inside the cabin?

    When I switch to position 2, instrument panel light works. I have a spyder front head light as well and the LED should work but that's not coming on either...

    Did you check the fuses in both fuse boxes (under hood and inside under emergency brake)? Your tail fuse is located in the box by the emergency brake....

    i was able to replace all fuses that burned. The only thing I am still having problem is the fog light. Relay checked out, fuses are good. As for the light, it's fine.

    crossed red and black. Even the lable on the wire said warning, red with red, black with black. I couldn't see the color until I plugged in and peeled the factory tape.... big kick in the ass it was.
