my dad owns this toyota pickup 1985. his stoplight doesn't come on when he hit the brakes. at first we thought it might be the bulbs, but it wasn't. then we thought it was the stoplight switch, but turns out it wasn't that either. third we thought it might be the wires or the stoplight fuse might have blown. we checked out the wires, those are fine also. then we tried to look for the stoplight fuse, but we can't seem to locate it. it's not under the hood. i was just wondering if anybody could give me a diagram of where the stoplight fuse is or just simply point out the location for me? thanks very much.

Diagram?

The fuse for the breaklights is under the dash on the drivers side.
Yeah I located the fuse box for it. But there's no diagram that points out the specific fuse or anything. Do you know where I can find a diagram for that?

I couldn't find a diagram for the fuse box itself... This might be completely useless...

You either have a blown fuse or a bad tail light relay, the relay is the round silver thing plugged into the fuse box.

theres no cover for it so i dont know the diagram. all the fuses are just fine. so now i know it isnt because of the fuse. as for the tail light relay thing, ill look at that. the situation of my car is that all my other lights work. the flash signals work, the reverse works, etc. but when i hit the brakes the brake lights wont come on. so does the bad tail light relay apply to that as well?

Lets back up a second. What method did you use to determine the wires were fine? Have you taken a meter to the socket and checked it? Or at the very least a test light. Use the same point in the socket for your ground as the bulb would use. Check for broken grounds.

when i had this problem on my88 it was the connector next to the end of the seat on passenger side on the top of the rocker inside the cab

it was losing connection and i couldnt fix it no matter what i tried so i cut all the wires and remove the connector and crimped each wire bcktogether right there

problem solved now no more dead break lights and such

the fuel pump also runs its wires through this connector


good luck
