Customer Question
I replaced license plate...

I replaced license plate lights on back (both). They had been unplugged. Now I have to use the bottom on console to unlock automatic shifter. You got any ideas if this is related. I just bought this truck.

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

The two lights in bumper , one each side of license plate.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Toyota?

2008 Tacoma SR 5

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

I took it in and had a complete service done and that is when we discovered both of these lights out. We had to dig old bulbs out and blew a fuse under.
