    2006 silver tundra
    Lifted 3 inches, 33 Milestar Patagonia, XD wheels, replaced headlights with blacked lined, America flag in the ceiling, interior led lights, new stereo system, with back up camera. Bull bar with light bar on it. And a back rack.
    So my 2006 tundra only has the blinker and headlights working, the running lights and fog lights cut out. Any advice on re wiring to try to get the fog lights to work again and get the running lights on. I’m planning on retrofitting projectors on my headlights and just need to fix the wiring before I start on that project.

    I am new here, and also just getting into modding my truck myself. I have worked on my truck before, but I I haven’t getting into the electrical stuff as muck as I probably should have.

    Can you esplain it a little more? We're they working until recently? Have you made any wiring changes? Do you have the stock wiring or did you add aftermarket? Fuses? Relays?

    So the fog lights never worked, but the running light just stopped working when I was installing a new housing for the headlights, so that’s where I am.

    Have you checked the bulbs or any fuses? I wouldn’t think you should need to rewire anything just cause they are out unless your truck was in a wreck or something.

    I have replaced the fog light fuse, and the bulbs have been replaced or still work

    image.jpg This is what it looks like, the blinker lights are supposed to be on when the headlights are on, and blink when I use the blinker, they are not on when the headlights are one, but do work as blinkers. That is what just stopped working yesterday

    Yep the blinkers are your parking lights. Lit when the headlights are on. The inner bulb closest to grill is the DRL. Check that bulb as well. Double check fuses and relays in the under hood boxes as well as in the interior fuse box under your dash.

    Similar issues with other Tundras have been fixed by replacing the TAIL fuse located under the dash on the drivers side. It's a 15 amp fuse located behind the knee bolster panel located about where your left knee would be.
