2003 Toyota Questions and Answers


  • Trailer Lights Not Working When the Headlights are Turned On in a 2003 Toyota Camry
  • It sounds like you have a ground issue. When the headlights are on, the highest amperage draw is placed on the wiring system and, a faulty ground will show at this time. Make sure you have good metal to metal contact. Paint and corrosion can act as insulators, so make sure the grounds are touching clean metal. I would check all of the ground connections on the trailer. First, check the ground at the trailer tongue. Take the ground loose and clean the connection point on the trailer...

  • Choosing a Replacement A-Frame Trailer Jack for Pop-Up Camper
  • I will assume you are looking for an A-frame mounted jack, because that is what pop-ups typically use, and because that is the part you referred to. The bolt hole pattern is standard, so matching up with the holes in the trailer tongue should not be a problem. You would want to choose a jack whose capacity is greater than the tongue weight of the pop-up, which is typically 10-15 percent of the fully loaded trailer weight. The Dutton-Lainson # DL22781 jack you mentioned should have...

  • Parts Needed for Installation of Electric Brakes on a Coleman Pop-Up Camper With 8 Inch Wheels
  • The 8 inch diameter wheel on your Coleman Fleetwood pop-up camper is not large enough to accept an electric brake hub and drum assembly. Seven inch brake assemblies like # 23-48 that you selected work with the Trailer Hub & Drum Assembly, item # 8-257-5UC3, which will fit in wheels starting at 10 inches in diameter. You would need to upgrade your wheels and tires to either a 5.30-12 load range c wheel and tire combination, or a 205/65-10 load range c wheel and tire to meet the capacity...

  • What Is The Purple Wire Used For On The Brake Controller 7 & 4 Way Installation Kit # ETBC7
  • The purple wire on the adapter included with the Brake Controller 7 & 4 Way Installation Kit, # ETBC7, is an auxiliary wire and can be used as a 12 volt power source, to power a reverse light or reverse lockout function for trailer brakes if needed. This wire can be tied up if it is not used, which is why you often see it left unused in our installation videos. You can see some helpful wiring diagrams at the link provided, as well as a video showing the purple wire on the 4-Way to 7...

  • Installing a Brake Controller from Scratch on a 2003 Toyota Tacoma
  • To install a brake controller on your 2003 Toyota Tacoma, you will need 3 things. First, you will need a brake controller. There are many to choose from in basically two different categories; time delay and proportional. The biggest difference between the two is that time delay controls will brake the same amount in every braking situation. Proportional controllers brake in proportion to how much the tow vehicle is braking which leads to less brake wear and better braking. I have included...

  • Light Kit Recommendation for a Motorcycle Carrier
  • We have a light kit that could possibly be made to work on your motorcycle carrier, part # 98174LED. Without knowing what motorcycle carrier you have it would be hard to say exactly what you would need to do to mount it to your carrier. The lights of this kit are considered submersible meaning they are waterproof. This kit is designed to attach to a 4-way connector, so you would need a 7-way to 4-way adapter to allow you to connect your trailer connector to this light kit. For that you...

  • Using MaxxTow # MT70355 Adapter with Draw-Tite Class II Hitch # 36336 on 2003 Toyota Camry
  • Your best bet would be to use a cargo carrier designed for a 1-1/4 inch hitch that has an angled shank to provide the additional ground clearance you're looking for. I'd recommend the Curt # C18110, which is compatible with the Class II hitch you're interested in and features an angled shank that would provide over a 3 inch rise for improved ground clearance. When we installed the Draw-Tite Class II hitch, part # 36336 on a 2006 Camry, we found that the hitch would be recessed under...

  • Can the Edge Insight Comprehensive Gauge Display be Switched to Different Vehicles
  • The Edge Insight, # EP84130, will fit in any 1996 and newer vehicle that has an OBD-II port, so you can switch it to a different vehicle. Because this device is a comprehensive gauge display and does not tune the engine, additional programming, other than periodic updates to the software, are not required.

  • How To Determine If 2003 Toyota Highlander Has The Factory Tow Package
  • if your 2003 Toyota Highlander has a tow package plug located in the driver's side rear cargo area under the floor (see instructions for installing Item # 118413 on where to look) then your Highlander has the tow package. If you find a plug, use a circuit tester like Item # 40376 to check to see if it is active. If you do not find a plug or the one you find is not active then you do not have a tow package. Another way to find out is to contact your local Toyota dealer, give them...

  • How Do Cold Air Intakes Affect Fuel Economy
  • A cold air intake like the AFE Direct Fit Cold Air Intake System # AFE51-11052 that you referenced could only help your fuel economy. Most likely it would give you a few more miles per gallon. As long as it is installed correctly it should give you increased fuel mileage and performance. I attached installation instructions for you to check out also. When the filter gets dirty you may also be interested in purchasing AFE Filter Cleaner # AFE90-59999

  • Locking Hitch Pin Recommendation that Won't Rust
  • It sounds like you are looking for a replacement locking hitch pin since you said the lock pin of your hitch. For a locking hitch pin I would recommend the Bulldog Trailer Hitch Lock part # BD580402 as it is stainless steel which is rustproof.

  • Can a Trailer Axle be Put On a Truck Bed to Make a Trailer
  • First, I am pretty sure you don't have to change the axle out if you are making a trailer out of a truck bed. You will want to check the laws in your state/area though. The highest capacity straight axles that we carry are rated for 3,500 pounds which likely exceeds the capacity of the truck bed. For a trailer axle that will accept a hub with a 6 on 5-1/2 bolt pattern you could use # T3584F-8974 with hub # 84655UC1. Or EZ lube axle # T3584F-EZ-8974 with hub # 84655UC1-EZ. Both of...

  • Troubleshooting a Trailer that Keeps Blowing Left Turn/Brake Lights
  • It sounds like there might be a short on the left turn/brake circuit of your trailer. That would explain why the bulb went out initially and then why it went out again after you changed the bulb. I would inspect the circuit starting at the trailer connector and go all the way back to the tail light looking for corrosion or exposed wire and fix as necessary. The other thing I would check is the ground of the tail light assembly, bad grounds can cause all sorts of bizarre behavior so I...

  • What is the Difference Between Adco Travel Trailer Storage Covers 290-52239 and 290-52238
  • Length is the difference between Adco covers # 290-52238 and # 290-52239. The shorter one, # 290-52238, fits travel trailers up to 15 feet long. The longer one # 290-52239 fits trailers that are 15 feet, 1 inch long to 18 feet long. If your trailer is within the length requirements above then you can use the corresponding cover. If it is a different length let me know and I can make other recommendations.

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2003 Toyota Tundra with Factory Towable Bumper
  • Yes, you can install Curt trailer hitch # 13184 on your 2003 Toyota Tundra with the factory towable bumper. I have included a link to a video showing an example installation for you. I also recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag. If the ball mount kit does not have the right...

  • Front Mount Trailer Hitch Recommendations for a 2003 Toyota Tacoma Prerunner TRD
  • We have two options for front mount hitches specifically designed for your 2003 Toyota Tacoma and neither of them state that the skid plate will have to be removed for installation. First is the Curt Hitch, # C31013. This hitch mounts to the bottom of the frame rails. Unless your transmission cooler is mounted there the hitch will not interfere. Next is the Draw-Tite Hitch, # 65041. This hitch attaches to the bottom of the frame rails and also has 1 attachment point on the outside of...

  • Transmission Distance of Rampage Wireless Backup Camera System # RA7710
  • According to Rampage Products, the maximum transmission distance between the camera and wireless phone is a pretty staggering 300 feet. My Rampage representative tells me he's routinely used the Rampage Wireless Back Up Camera # RA7710 on the back of 24 and 28 foot horse trailers, and longer fifth wheel trailers, and the camera has worked very well. Because this system operates on Wi-Fi, not Bluetooth, you won't get interference like you would with wireless camera systems that operate...

  • Will 4 and 7 Way Installation Kit # ETBC7 Work on a 2 Wire Trailer System and 2003 Toyota Tacoma
  • Both the Draw-Tite Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring, # 118379, and the 4 and 7 Way Installation Kit, # ETBC7, for your 2003 Toyota Tacoma, will work with a trailer that has a 2 wire system. A two wire system carries the turn signal and brake light signals on the same wire. A 3 wire system has a separate turn signal. Most trailers use a 2 wire system. That is why many trailer harnesses for vehicles with a 3 wire system are made to convert it down to a 2 wire system. The ETBC7 has left turn and...

  • Replacement Trailer Coupler Repair Kits for 2-Inch Couplers
  • Coupler Repair Kit # CA-5100-RK includes all parts needed to rebuild an etrailer brand or Ram brand 5K-rated 2-inch ball coupler with a trigger latch. It consists of all components other than the housing. If you have one of these models - # CA5100B, # CA-5100-Z or CA-5100-BLB - then this is the correct rebuild kit. If you have another brand or model of coupler on your trailer you can refer to the linked page that displays all such kits for many brands of coupler. The Big Tex website...

  • Will The Hidden Hitch # 90638 Clear Spare Tire On 2003 Toyota Sienna
  • Yes, you will be able to access the spare tire with the Draw-Tite # 75120, on your 2003 Toyota Sienna. I contacted our representative at Draw Tite, and he informed me that they have not had any issues with part # 75120, fitting the 2003 Toyota Sienna or clearing the spare tire. He informed me that you may want to lower the spare tire to provide easier access when installing the hitch and then raise it back into place. You should not have any issues with part # 75120 clearing the spare...

  • What is the Weight Capacity for the Rola Roof Rack part # 59721
  • The 110 weight capacity of the Rola Sport Series Roof Rack # 59721 is the capacity of the pair of cross bars that the roof rack consists of. The capacity is for the two crossbars together. Your canoe that weighs 110 lbs should be fine, on this roof rack. You will want to consult the owners manual of your 2003 Toyota Matrix to determine what the roof capacity is and be sure not to exceed that figure if it is lower than 110 lbs.

  • Does the Use of a Pop Up Camper Cover Trap Moisture and Cause Mold
  • You just have to use the right type of cover to avoid excess moisture build up on the pop up camper. A cover like # CA80042 that you have referenced has integrated air vents. This allows moisture to escape and it also reduces wind stress. I have linked the instructions for you. If you were to seal off the camper with a regular tarp that did not allow moisture to escape you would be looking at a mold problem.

  • Trailer Brake Lights Not Working when Connected to a 2003 Toyota Tacoma
  • Does your 2003 Toyota Tacoma have a factory tow package and trailer connector? If so then it could be a blown fuse associated with the tow package wiring. Many times, the tow package wiring is separate from the vehicle tail light wiring so the truck brake lights working would make sense. If it is an aftermarket wiring harness such as # 118379 then it is strange that the brake lights on the trailer are not working because the brake lights and turn signals are on the same circuit. This...

  • Can I Flat Tow a 2003 Toyota MR2 Spyder
  • If your 2003 Toyota MR2 Spyder is an automatic it must be towed on a trailer, it cannot be flat towed. If it is a manual, it can be flat towed. You will want to check with your vehicle owner's manual to confirm this. Roadmaster base plates, # 1169-1, are a confirmed fit for your vehicle. If you have a Blue Ox tow bar you can use the adapter # RM-033. To make the draw-bar arms on the base plates removable, use adapter # RM-032. This adapter comes with quick disconnects so you can remove...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2003 Toyota Tacoma 4WD Manual Behind Class C Motorhome

All of these items are covered in the linked article on flat towing and additional articles on braking systems and high/low adapters are linked too. I also suggest you check your Tacoma owner's manual...
