    I recently bought my first truck: 2017 Tundra SR5 4x4 Crewmax 5.7L V8. 1- owner before who added a leveling kit and 35 inch Mud terrains. There was also this aftermarket switch in the panel and this bumper light bar that I think are supposed to be connected to each but aren’t? Can anyone tell me how to turn this light bar on?

    You need to recheck your wiring connections. The wire from the light bar and inside control switch must connect together and then connect to your battery.

    Gotcha. I’ve never really worked with electronics like that before so would you recommend any way I can get started and learn how to possibly rewire the connections? Or am I better off paying a professional to do it?

    Since it was already installed and assuming it was done correctly I'm wondering if the relay is bad or was removed.

    Seek professional services. Most advice from any forums are from trails, errors and very few mastor mechanic. Small scale problems can lead to major disaster, and very costly if handle by a shade-tree-mechanic.

    Yes, listen to Nova1967…
    Try to find mastor mechanic, preferably dealership …Seek professional help on how to turn light switch on
    Do NOT attempt risky “trails error”
    And avoid shade-tree-mechanic at all cost
    Thanks and come again
