Customer Question
It is a 2012...

It is a 2012 Toyota Tundra 5.7 iForce motor limited edition there is no dash lights no turn signals no door lights no exterior lights and I cannot start it?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? The dashboard bulbs?

I've checked what fuses I thought it would be and I haven't found any that would be blown I'm trying to figure out which fuse or relay it could possibly be

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Tundra yourself? What have you tried so far?

And now I'm getting a weird click from the dash and the gauge needles are gauge arms are all bouncing with it

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I have to charge the battery using a trickle charger I have not tried to jump start it yet because I don't have a second vehicle to jump start it

Hello and welcome to just answer, my name is ***** ***** to help. I cannot see or hear your vehicle so I rely on your patience and input to my questions so I can help you better. I read your notes and have a question before we proceed. Have you also checked all the fuse-able-links? these are the larger high ampere fuses , i'll send a pic of what to look for, they are in the main fuse block under the hood. You have to look carefully at the center of these for breakage or discoloration.
