I recently installed the 98 style tails on my 95 supra. Everything went good it was real easy and the lights work. When i got in the car I noticed that the missing taillight light was on on the dash. Anybody know what I need to do to turn it off. Or am i stuck with it on forever? Let me know. Thanks

SEARCH!!! This is a known problem when switching to 98 Tails. To fix the problem call up Curt and buy a $2xx sensor. Just take the bulb out of the dash is what he will tell you, and I'll tell you the same. Good luck.

or search again and find out which resistors to replace so you don't have to buy the module.

Just type lamp failure in the search and look for Taillight swap to newer style taillights or my username speedracer in the search and I have wrote many threads to get the message out to everyone that does the taillight mod swap how to cure the lamp failure indication when you turn your headlight switch on and see the lamp failure sensor inication lit up on the dash. Hope this will help you solve the problem.

i looked into doing this when i switched to 98 style taillights. The two resistors that u need are not sold at radio shack(atleast in my area) so i just decided to pull the little bulb out from behind the dash. It's probably your easiest solution, unless you want to fork out the $200+ for a new lamp failure sensor.

The hardest part about the resistor swap is finding them. They aren't expensive. Easy to swap out. Cheaper than replacing the lamp failure sensor. Once the resistor swap is done, the sensor works like normal if a filament bulb burns out.
