    Hey all, i'm not sure where to post this, but perhaps this is the place. I just picked up my tacoma this evening. It was a base truck to which I had them install a cruise control. Now, here's the question: When my lights are off, my radio backlighting illuminates; however, the moment I turn on the parking lights or the headlights, the radio illumination goes off. Could they have put something in backwards while installing my cruise control? It sucks because I can't see the radio display without turining on the interior light. It's a stock radio/cd unit. Any suggestions on what I could check? I assume there's a crossed wire that is killing the signal to the illumination when the lights are turned on, instead of off.

    If the dealer installed it take it back to them and have them redo it. It may be a wire crossed but I couldn't really see how someone would mess this up because to my knowledge every Tacoma is pre-wired for everything.
