2003 Toyota Questions and Answers


  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Cost Effective Way to Carry Two Kayaks on the Roof of a 2003 Toyota Avalon
  • For a roof rack confirmed to fit your 2003 Toyota Avalon SLE I recommend the Inno Square Crossbar Roof Rack System which is composed of part # INB137, part # INSUT, and part # INK202. This is an excellent cost effective system for you. It has square crossbars as the title states that will accept a wide range of different rooftop carriers. The bars have a 140 lb weight capacity though you will need to check the roofs weight capacity before use. The best way to carry two kayaks on the...

  • 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 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...

  • 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...

  • Smoked Rain Cover Recommendation for MaxxFan 4401K Roof Vent
  • The rain cover you would want to use with the MaxxAir MaxxFan part # MA00A04401K that you referenced is the # MA00-955003 which has the correct hinge design you would need.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • What is a Draw Bar for Use with Trailer Hitch for 2003 Toyota Corolla
  • The term "draw bar" is interchangeable with the term "ball mount" which both mean the shank that slides into the hitch opening that can hold a hitch ball. I attached a picture that shows what the Curt ball mount part # C45521 looks like that is recommended for use with the Curt hitch # C11265 which is a confirmed fit for your 2003 Toyota Corolla. For trailer wiring you'd then want the part # 55542 which is a confirmed fit. For a hitch ball then you'd want the # A-80 for a 1-7/8 inch...

  • Recommendation for Over Under Kit to Flip the Trailer Axle Under the Leaf Springs and Raise Trailer
  • When you flip your axles using the Dexter Trailer Springs Over-Under Conversion Kit # K71-385-00 for 3 inch axles or # K71-384-00 for 2-3/8 inch axles, the other measurements do not change. You simply gain the height of the axle diameter plus the leaf spring stacked spring height at the axle. All of your springs, shackle straps, and hangers stay the exact same. If you choose to replace those parts, you will want to replace them with the same length and capacity parts. I see you...

  • 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

  • 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...

  • Will Craftec Tonneau Cover # 551935 Fit a 2003 Toyota Tundra SR5
  • The Craftec tonneau cover # 551935 will fit all models of the 2003 Toyota Tundra, including your SR5, that have a 6 foot bed, stepside only, with or without bed caps. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you to view. If you do not have a stepside bed then you will need # 551129 for regular width beds.

  • 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.

  • Will TorkLift PowerArmor Locking Battery Box # TLA7712R Fit Golf Cart Batteries
  • I checked with Tork Lift and I was able to confirm that their PowerArmor Locking Battery Box # TLA7712R will work fine with either T105 or SC2 types of 6V golf cart batteries. If you have a different type of golf cart battery please let me know which and I will check for a suitable box.

  • 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...

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier for a 2003 Toyota Camry with Low Ground Clearance
  • Because the ride height of your 2003 Camry is low and because of the angle of the road/driveway it would be best to use a trailer hitch mount cargo carrier that does have a rise in the shank such as # C18110. I do not recommend a straight-shank carrier for this vehicle and situation because it is much more likely to scrape the ground. The Curt carrier # C18110 is a good choice because it offers a 3-3/4 inch rise in the shank. I have linked the installation details for you.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Can a DeeZee Ladder Rack be Used to Carry a Canoe
  • The width on the DeeZee ladder rack, # DZ95053, is 23 inches. It could be used to carry a canoe but you may have to carry the canoe on its side. You would also need to tie down the bow and stern using something like # Y04031. I also recommend using some foam blocks, # SR5529, on the ladder rack bars to protect the canoe. Always make sure the bow and stern are tied down to the vehicle. Otherwise you will end up with a canoe projectile.

  • Recommended Replacement Trailer Lights and Jack
  • You can remove the snap ring of our Bulldog jack and leave the welded mounting bracket on your trailer. You can replace the jack with # BD151460. The closest LED tail lights we have to yours are # 271595 for the driver's side and # 271594 for the passenger's side. They measure 7-1/2 by 3-1/2 inches with 2 inches between the mounting holes. They're submersible. We don't have the exact clearance light either but # AL91AB is very close and I think will work for you. It's also an LED...

  • 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 50 inch Crossbars be Used on a Thule Roof Rack Instead of 58 inch Bars
  • You should have no problem using the 50 inch Thule Square Bars part # THLB50 on your 2003 Toyota Highlander with raised side rails. The other part you will need is the Thule Crossroad Roof Mounted Roof Railing Foot Pack # TH450. I attached an install video for this rack on a similar Highlander as yours, you'll notice that the crossbars used are 50 inch.
