We need to try to find more anomalies that our trucks have in common. I think this will help

So far I think we have:

1.) The main issue
2.) Flickering rear cargo light sometimes

Anything else?

Do any of your other lights just stop working at times? By chance do you have an e locker? Do you have an agm battery?
What about your cigarette lighter, maybe we should check it with a meter as well?

Lastly...I think your voltage checked out right? Like the voltage regulator and such?

No other lights stop working, no e locker, normal battery non AGM. I have a separate volt gauge and can also check it with the scangauge. My voltage seems perfect. I have a new alternator from Toyota


I really don't have any other issues/anomalies with the vehicle other than the gauges

I'll try to check my battery and such this weekend.

Darn, I was really hoping we might discover some kind of common issue that would lead us to the source.

I may end up breaking down and paying my cousin to figure it out. He is a master tech for Asian vehicles with his own shop, but even though he is family, he's not cheap lol.

But I guess if you can figure it out then technically it will help two people vs one. Haha

Hahaha, I am a college student so I definitely cannot afford to pay someone to fix it! If i come across anything thru the combination meter tests, I will post it here.

But if your cousin has any insights too, please post those here as well. Hopefully we can solve it so when it happens to other people's 4runners, it will be a relatively simple fix, unlike how it has been for us!

Oh absolutely, definitely want to help out anybody else who has this issue. Anything that affects the odometer really bothers me.

Oh!! I totally forgot to ask earlier, so both of our tissues happen under hard acceleration usually. What I forgot to ask is, every time it's happened are you using cruise control?

@hamsandwiches

Just in the off chance for more information I'd recommend giving a call to United Radio. They do guage cluster repair.

We're pretty sure this isn't a cluster issue because of the swap with same results. However, united radio might have some ideas.

Just a thought.

this thread is like the SuperBowl of T4R Electrical Diagnosis, its the old school Pong of table tennis of back & forth, waiting for someone to claim the trophy, I got my snacks in hand and can't seem to stop myself from coming back to this thread to see what developments may have arisen...

hope you both figure this out, I'm on the sideline cheering..

This is what I am dealing with in one of my rigs....

The RPM's only read when I get on the gas & its slow to work.... when I take my foot off the gas, the RPM's basically drop down to almost 0.... really weird..
