    What's up guys,
    I was hoping I can get some help . I just installed a pair of LED lights (IPCW LEDT-2040CB Bermuda black) on my 2010 Taco. They sit perfect and it's easy to connect. The only problem now is that they don't light up unless it's on reverse or if I press the break. Also my turn signals and hazardous lights don't come on, not even in the front headlights or my dash, it's like that function just disappeared. I tried putting my old taillights on and it still doesn't work. Help me please !! :)

    It's because the led lights use a much lower current than the original bulbs. So they have a much lower resistance. Essentially, your truck believes the bulbs are burnt out. You'll either need to get a no-load flasher for LEDs or wire in resistors to increase the overall load on the circuit to the original resistance of the incandescent bulbs.

    Have you purchased the type "CK" LED bulbs?

    i finally fixed it today, it turned out to be some of the fuses that went bad. I replaced them and the lights work nice. gives it a different look. Thanks :D

    I thought nobody used turn signals anymore, around here I think they are a buy on option for a new car.

    I figured Cali would be twice as bad!!! :)

    Keep an eye on then. Fuses don't just go "bad".

    These are by far the best looking tail lights if you're looking for black accents. Are all of the bulbs on these LEDs, including the reverse lights at the bottom? I've seen some online retailers that charge an extra $15-$17 if you also want LED reverse lights.
