    Oy. That’s what the lady said. I haven’t had one of those in years, but I’ve been stabbing my self with rusty implements and still no lockjaw. I remember as a kid that shit took me out and I had to crawl back home from a friends house. Nothing funny like a 8 year old crawling across a yard, at least now it is.

    FWIW you would most definitely get one had you sought medical attention. Especially if it’s been >10 years since your last.

    those darn needles were so large for a kid… I remember that.

    I don’t know when the last time I’ve sought medical attention. Besides some chiropractic work

    There is not a whole lot I can do right now except be at their mercy. The new head mechanic was hit up about doing something like insulation on the case/line and he said that might void my warranty, said to wait and see what Corporate wants to do.

    This may qualify for a lemon law deal but as others have stated all you are gonna get back is your purchase price and in today's market there are no replacements hardly to be found anywhere equipped/color like mine. Others have commented on wet cabin filters and moisture at the back of the glove box and this seems it may be a design issue now. This never happened on my 2nd Gen for 14 1/2 years and 249K miles. BTW, on the 2nd Gen, all I ever spent other than maintenance came to about $350. One new front hub was needed and the fan connectors and the center console latch. Not bad for a 14 1/2-year-old truck for repairs. I ended up with about 4 sets of new rear springs due to recalls and I did have the driveshaft replaced due to a second gear shudder but it got paid for due to a recall as well.

    A growing list of stuff

    Please explain what the 2 different positions of that switch are supposed to activate.
    Is it for something like a low powered running light LED (like a DRL), or 2 different sets of beams?
    By the wiring diagram, it is looking like a DRL, because anything more than that would blow a 3A fuse.
    The reason why the switch activates a relay to begin with is that driving lights usually take a bit of amperage.
    My guess right off the bat would be if you disconnected the white from the switch and replaced the fuse that the one function of the light would work with no blown 3A fuse.

    The wheels are awesome, and the guys at Tandem are really good guys as well. It’s also nice to have something different than everyone else.

    Weird! I parked my Taco yesterday and just randomly looked at that same sticker and without much thought decided it's coming off. A quick pick at a corner and peeled off in two easy pcs. Yup, got the ghost print but not nearly as obnoxious.

    yeah, I was noticing that. probably not a great solution, but they're still better than the runningboards I had cancelled I guess

    My PDR guy removed a mystery dent from my hood this morning. The guy is a fucking magician! Absolutely no trace this dent ever existed.

    No. As any true Tacoma user knows, you use your medical kit when you get an 'ouchie' - and some duct tape. This solves any crisis (correct me if I'm wrong here).

    Getting ready to put that OEM woofer in that spot, can't wait for it to get here.

    Ooooookay. You asked... so here you go.

    So you show this relay. This is a KC3300
    KC3300_TopView.jpg

    Same thing as this relay - but different view showing the bottom of the Relay.
    KC3300_Relay.jpg

    THIS is how they are typically setup.
    Typical_KC3300a_Diagram_With-Pins.jpg

    The included instructions - missing the required PINS from the relay to really answer those annoying questions...
    20210813_160638.jpg

    AAAAAANNNNDDDD... here is that part of the instructions - with PIN numbers added in...
    AS you can see - up top on the lights - you see they have a WHITE, BROWN and BLACK wire on each light. I think the design is that the HIGH light has both the HIGH and LOW lights active at the same time - and the LOW light just with it as one light - not both.

    In *this* Wiring diagram - the switch has two functions (HIGH) with the "=" sign, or (LOW) with the "-" sign.
    The yellow on the switch acts as the *common* 12v pole between them.

    So its one of these conditions:
    Switch in Center: "o" will do Nothing
    Yellow + White: "=" Sets to High Beam (with both High and Low lights active at same time) - switch acts as pass through for dual power to each light which is why the yellow has that 3A fuse on it.
    Yellow + Green: "-" Sets to Low Beam (with just low light on)

    Since your lights operate with High (with *BOTH* the low and High lights active at same time) or Low (with just low on) - this is why it's wired up like that.

    It's confusing, yes.

    I started to see some nasty corrosion forming on my battery terminals especially the negative side.

    So I got some of these things to try to clean and prevent it

    NOCO NCP2 MC303 Oil-Based Battery Terminal Protectors, Anti-Corrosion Washers, And Battery Corrosion Pads (Pack of 2) https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B001DKUTR0

    NOCO Remove+ E404 14 Oz Battery Terminal Cleaner Spray And Corrosion Cleaner With Acid Detector https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B002MGTNX0

    NOCO NCP2 A202 12.25 Oz Oil-Based Battery Corrosion Preventative Spray, Corrosion Inhibitor, And Battery Terminal Grease https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B001DKRGLM


    Will see how well it works. I sure have enough to do so many more cars now.

    Even if you don’t think it’s going to be “that hot” out- bring in your soda from the truck. All 12 exploded within 30 seconds as I was driving home. Weather tech is no match for that kind of firepower. E5175AD9-EF10-4315-87EA-2B1604CDD4B2.jpg
