    Is the switch for fog lamps, rear differential, and the power supply supposed to light up with all the other dashboard panel lights? Mine, of course, don't.

    My fog light back light turns on when I turn my lights on. I don't have the other buttons. There is a small bulb inside the switch, yours might be blown.

    dumbest thing ever....the only way you can tell if your fogs are on is if it's pushed in...no light. the back light illuminates when the lights are on, as stated.

    Yes, the white fog light insignia is illuminated whenever the lights are on. It doesn't matter if the button is pushed in or not, it lights with the parking/headlights.

    Shit, my apologizes. I forgot to take a pic of my buttons on my break, was to busy scraping the thick ass ice off the windshield, so I can leave at 11. In my 15th hour at work, so wasn't thinking about it. I'll take a pic tomorrow.

    here's what mine look like with the parking or head lights on...the top row right (inverter) and bottom left (mirror adjustment) don't light up. the inverter only lights up when the switch is pressed in to operate... sorry for the crappy pictures.

    ^ I was going to just post pics off the internet. There's pics of it lit up all over by people that have changed the color. Mine's still orange though.

    All Tacomas have lights in switch. Swapped mine on my 2005 to white LED's. Removed the old burnt orange bulbs before replacing them. They only come on when your lights are on. It would be nice to have the light come on only when the switch is on but haven't found a way yet.

    I took apart the fog lamp assemble and found there is a bulb in inside. However, I have to go through Toyota for the replacement. There are no local stores that carry such a beast. The complete assembly, bulb and switch is $70 dollars. No wonder a new truck is ~$40,000. Toyota couldn't tell me the price on the bulb so Ill have to bring it to the dealership.
