    I believe those older taco's have manual shifting 4wd, if so make sure you hooked up the linkage to the shifter. Also there is probably a sensor around the shifter somewhere that actuates the light. If I am wrong and the old taco's are push button, or knob like the 2nd gen, then it is either electrically actuated or vacuum actuated, and make sure all your connections are tight on wires and vacuum hoses.
