Hi, I have a 2012 Hilux 3.0 D4D and when I press on the brake pedal, the fog lights turn on, as soon as I release the pedal, they turn off.

Has anyone had or heard about this same problem?

Thanks in advance!

Welcome to the forums! :)

Is there a trailer light adapter installed? If so, remove it and see if yer issue is still there. The adapters are notorious fer failing and causing all sorts of electrical gremlins. ;)

Are there any other aftermarket parts/mods installed? If so, what are they? ;)

I opened the lights and removed one bulb from my brake lights and stepped on my brake pedal, and the issue did not come up. Put the bulb in the socket again and removed the bulb from the other side, same thing, issue was gone. So I swapped the bulbs, the old ones seemed ok, side by side with the new ones they seemed exactly the same, but I replaced them none the less and now everything works perfectly.

Maybe the contacts inside the bulb were screwed up.
