You will have to replace the unit. There is a TSB 0051-09 is the number came out in 1-22-09. says to replace unit. If your dads tacoma is under 3 year 36,000 miles then it will be warranty

I don't if what unclejpl4x4 found is the same as this fix all I read on that link was the fuse locations but its not a fuse cause it works off the taillight and ecu-ig fuses. Found a fix though that says to remove it and look inside the unit & repair the broken solder joint. All toyota wants us to do is replace the unit.
