    I have a 09 tundra which I recently upgraded the lights on,but I didn't know that by putting the wrong led bulb (I just now read that needs to be a CK for some reason) will result in blowing fuses. However I corrected that but now my fog lights and my rear lights are not coming on wth. I read the entire manual section about it and been looking on Internet, but I can not find anywhere that shows a relay, specific fuse, or anything else that I can check. I am really out of ideas at this point, so if anyone can tell come up with something it will be greatly appreciated. I have thought about the column switch, but how do I check that?

    Put blue lights on high and low beams, and those are fine, but when I put a set of led amber lights it's when I began to have all of the problems.

    I guess, the ones that dit it was the amber ones who stay on while driving. Replace that fuse and they work, but now my tail lights don't work and neither my fog lights.

    Check 6 and 9 in the CJB It could be some freak incident that they shorted.

    I've checked what I have for runs - they should be completely isolated from each other at the CJB.

    Did you splice anything or add a fuse anything?

    How'd those fuses work? I would personally just isolate the issue to the specific fixture and go from there. If the fuses are blown, replace them and check functionality. If the issue persists, try pulling the DTRL fuse and see if they work then. Also, double check fuse sizes and bulb compatibility through something like slyvania.com
