    Hello everyone,

    I just recently purchased a pre-owned '17 TRD OR. There is - what I believe to be - an OPT7 Redline Triple Tailgate light bar installed. It has reverse, brake, and amber sequential turn signals. However, the right turn signal does not function.

    Do you guys know of a way to fix this or run any test on it? If I can't get the right signal to work, is there a way to turn off the left signal? The light is installed with a strong adhesive. If I cannot get it to work, how do you guys recommend I safely remove it?

    Thanks!

    Unfortunately, the lifespan of most tailgate LED bars is measured in weeks. Worse yet, there is really no such thing as "user serviceable parts" inside. Once something goes, it's pretty much bin it and buy a new one. It also looks like whomever installed yours hard wired it, so you may find some interesting hacking into wiring harnesses at the back of the truck. Be careful!
