Hi, my name is***** you sure you have purchased the correct tail light for the Tundra? What happens when you plug in the new light? Does anything at all work? Have you checked to see if the new light came with bulbs?

I got the right light. I plug the new light in and it does not work. The old harness works. There are new bulbs inside the new unit
Toyota Mechanic: Marty, ASE Certified Technician replied 5 months ago

There must be a fault with the new harness. Have you compared the plug connectors? Do they both have the same pins? Why don't you just swap the old harness over to the new lamp?

I've seen some with bent pins in the connector or with a pin pushed back in the connector. Also make sure that all pins are in the exact same spot as the old one.
