    Hello,

    I have an 07 Prerunner that did not come with stock DTRL. I had added DTRL to it a while back, but I just removed the harness. The reason I took em off is because I added LED turn signals to the rear lights so I was getting hyper flash. I ended up getting an LED flasher and my rear turn signals work now, but my fronts are not working. I did some research and read that I needed to remove the DTRL or they won't work. Well I removed them and they are still not working. Any of you have any ideas why?

    Your TACO is missing the junction block where one of the connectors went.

    What @caribe makaira said.. You can get the block or there are some aftermarket ones that also give you some extra hazard options and quick blinkers. I removed my DTRL and added that but def need that deal.

    They sell one that is for LEDs and one that is for the Smart Tap which I mentioned.

    Ah without the junction block the Taco has no front turn signals, hence the situation.
    Turn/Hazard Relay is to the left of the block on the picture I posted.

    ah I thought it was the one or a version of what I posted for Diode. When I removed my harness I placed it with the smart tap which controlled the hazard and blinkers. Its Amazon you could see if that is what you need and return if not.

    I may have mixed up the relay for the junction block.

    You could assemble a substitute.

    You already have the required connector ( from the removed harness)
    P.S. wire colors in drawing is for '11+. But of terminals is the same.

    Here is a pic of my harness. If I'm correct it should the white plug right? And if so do I just cut the wires coming out of and just plug it?

    Ahh I see. All I did was unplug my harness and add the LED tap. I left the other end of the harness intact and just unplugged it where I replace it with the smart tap.

    Jumper ties front turns with rears when using plain Haz/Turn relay (Halogen or LED type)
    DTRL are controlled by the other type of DRL/Haz/Turn relay, hence no "jumper"(junction block)

    Looking into the connector identify locking clip, use tiny flat screwdriver or needle tip. (for de-pinning) pay attention to terminal position at removal so the added terminals go in at same "direction".
