    Little update, pulled, cleaned, and filled 8 year old autozone battery, which reset check engine light.

    Turn signals I think are due to the driver side front turn signal being glued in, and the wires broke. Fuse is fine, but relay may not be. And theirs a mess under back for trailer hookup.

    Took a chance on that handle, we will see.

    Tires are 117 each out the door, falcons, stock size, the spare is an old ghetto chevy rim. Dunno about that yet. It is full size but id prefer a toyota rim, so ill hold onto the best tire.

    As far as keys and alarm, I've learned nothing more then I gotta run to the dealer :(

    If by "aftermarket," you mean LED, that's the problem. The flasher is designed to flash too fast if it does not see a large enough load (if a bulb burns out). LEDs don't provide enough load. To fix, either put standard incandescent bulbs in it or add a load resistor.

    For 2010 and newer trucks, if you register at http://www.toyota.com/owners/ , they will give you free online access to the owner's manual. Maybe they will do it for your truck, too.
