    I bought a trailer light kit for my truck (2010 PreRunner) I am not sure what wire works the break lights and running lights.. I found that under my truck the green wire is the running lights, and the blue wire is the break lights..I can not get them to work together. If anyone knows of something I may be doing wrong your help would be appreciated

    Is the kit you bought specifically for your truck? Or is it a universal kit? Since a Tacoma has seperate, orange signals, you need a kit that has five wires in, four wires out. Two signals in, one brake light in, ground, tail lights. Output is two seperate brake light wires that are overrided to signals, then ground and tail.
