    Hi Tacoheads,
    I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction. I have a 2009 taco (TRD model). I had the initial problem with the fan selector switch not working on lower speeds, but working on high speed. Changed the resistor and wiring connector to it successfully & it worked for a little while, but then it stopped. Upon further inspection I noticed the Pigtail connector to the heater blower motor is frayed and the connector is burned out (see pic's). Does anyone know where to get a replacement pigtail connector? in advance thanks for any information!!!IMG_4370.jpg IMG_4371.jpg

    Thank you 98! No ... no markings at all. I've been trying to match it up with other connectors while I was consulting the all and powerful Google, but no luck yet. I really don't want to go to the stealership. Here's a few more pics. Thank you for replying.

    Any luck? I have Same issue! You would think they would do a recall with as many that have this problem and the fire hazard potential!
