Having problems with your 1985 Toyota Pickup ?

Trailer brake lights do not work, trailer is wired correctly

Answers :

Going off of you stating that your trailer is working, then we know the problem is in your truck. Your truck should have a converter box in it. Test the power going into the box, then test the wires coming out. It could be a short in the box, and you might just have to replace it. If you click here, you can view the installation instructions on a converter box.

Also, for this vehicle and year, Draw-Tite recommends running a separate cable to your batter to draw power from your battery to protect the vehicle wiring. It's not *required* but recommended. To view more information about this you can click here.

Also, check fuses, and use a non-conductive grease on the wiring to keep the plug clean.

Hope this helps!
I have a 2002 tacoma and have the same problem. From what I was told is that there is supose to be a relay to fix this provblem. I have yet to fix it but what I have been doing is just not using my brakes lol
