Customer Question
Hi, my name is...

Hi, my name is ***** *****. I am truck-sitting my son's 2006 Toyota Tacoma and noticed none of the brake lights come on. I looked at the bulbs and they appear to have good elements. This truck does not have the Stop Light Relay. The space for it in the fuse box is empty and there are no terminals in the slots. So I don't know where the relay is that works the brake lights. I think the brake pedal switch is working because it cancels the cruise control when I hit the brakes. Any ideas?

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

What details do you need?

IF the Tacoma does NOT have VSC (skid control) there will be NO Relay
It will be direct feed from Fuse "STOP" to the GREEN / WHITE wire at the Brake Switch
From the Brake Switch to the BLUE wire to the Brake Lights
Test Fuse "STOP" on "both sides" of Fuse for Voltage +
Test Brake Switch on "both sides" for Voltage +
Test BLUE wire to the Brake Lights for Voltage +
