    LED are polerized. Did u put them in the right way? Key fob might be the small battery or a fuse, engine bay.

    If 3 work that means the LED's are not properly connected, reversed, there is a problem with the harness, or the temperature was too high and you wrecked/shorted the LED's installing them.

    Make sure to check all of your fuses and disconnect your battery before attempting any mods.

    it took me a few tries but I got mine right eventualy. some had a bad connection, some were soldered in reverse. If one led is backwards or doesnt have a good connection then none of them will work in that series.

    clockspring only affects the airbag and does not apply to the 2010

    All of the lights work that i put on. just the air bag light and track light are on now. some one had said about it may be the clock spring, but i thought the truck was too new for the wires in the clock spring to crack. i think i will have to stop by the toyota dealer ship and have them hook up the truck and give me a better idea of what may be going on with this dam thing. i have'nt had much time to look at it, my mother had a stroke and all my time is being spent with her. i can just look on the computer from her room. so when i can work on it i hope to have a good idea of whats up. thanks for all the help. Dan
