    My 2008 Tacoma’s wiring harness got fried from the fuse box back from an improperly wired trailer hitch. Are all my wires connected with the trailer wore harness or does the vehicle have a seperate harness for its wiring that isn’t trailer of towing related?

    Kinda hard to know without seeing .

    As the rear light harness could be bundled with other harnesses leading back to the ECM

    Maybe someone with a 2nd Generation knows for sure

    I read that the harness was melted from the fuse block back !!

    Never being up close and in person I have no idea of what collateral damage may have been done to other wiring touching the melted wires
