Hi Ern,
In our 100 series cruisers there has been a big plastic box under the bonnet with fuses in it and I couldn't locate the tail light fuse in there for love nor money....untill I found another cluster of fuses inside the vehicle on the passenger side front door pillar.

Open the passenger front door and remove the plastic panel in adjacent to the door hinges and to the left of the passenger foot well.

Look way up high nearly under the glove box on the door pillar.....great spot...anyway if my tail light fuse was there....I'm pretty sure your reverse light fuse could be there too....Happy Hunting

Hope this helps

Dam it Rick I've found the box but no luck.......really am perplexed now. Thanks for the tip as no way you would find that spot by guesswork.

OH BUGGER as the TOYOTA saying thought that I haven't checked out that sometimes the reverse lights are on the same circuit as the turn signal/indicators......

If this doesn't get you there...then I'm going back to the fishin' in the river.

Sorry I couldn't be of any more help that this....but it's worth a try.

G'day Ern,

On our 01 TDLC it is number 28 (15A) located in the leftside kick panel.

It is a very busy little fuse when you read the manual and see what it covers.

cheers graham

Eureka would you believe there is a similar fuse box under the RHS kick panel....fuse is marked "Gauge2", 10amp........go figure. Yep and this is for the reversing lights.
Thanks all

BTW you can test a fuse without removal with a multimeter probe or similar as the fuse has small indents either side on top to test for voltage. Turn the ignition key fully on to ensure power to all fuses.

The reason the fuse went is I have fitted a 12 pin trailer connector and fitted reversing lights to the van. Somehow I screws it up and blew the fuse. I also have a switch in the van which will switch on the van reversing lights as flood lights for the van rear.
