Reverse Wire

Guys, for the life of me I can't find any resources that show how to find the wire for the reverse lights in the back of the truck.

I just found it. The picture below is the top half of my passenger side rear light assembly. The left sideis the reverse light (at the top of the light assembly) . On my 1998 4Runner, the reverse light wire is RED with a blue stripe. The other wire is white with a black stripe. I believe that's the ground wire.

Hope this helps someone.

If memory serves me you are correct. The lights have ground wires to them. I put LED reverse bulbs in then hooked 2 smaller LED bars on the back bumper to give me more light for backup..:-)

Here is EWD of that circuit. You only use a small current draw LEDS. As you don't want overload that circuit. :-)

FYI Toyota ground wires usually are white with black stripe in all their circuits.
