Hi. My tail lights, fogs and dash lights went out. Not sure what's going on. Suspect it's a fuse but have no idea where it is. It's a 2016 Hilux D.C. 4x4. Thanks guys.

Sounds very much like a fuse or bad connection at the fuse box. Not sure where it's situated on your model but have a look behind the kick panel in the foot well (usually the driver's side). :winkx:

Did you tow a trailer? Look at the fuse box left of the steering collomb.

Hi Guys.

I found the fault. Was a 10A fuse and it's located on the passenger side under the glove compartment. Seems like the tail lights, fogs and dash lights work off the same fuse.

Thanks very much for the replies.
