    I have a brand new 2011 Scion TC, and it apparently only has one reverse light. I took it to the dealer and they said the car only comes with one, which makes no sense considering there are two reverse light spots in the back. They said the second one was a "dummy."

    I was wondering, is this normal?

    sure it is not that unusual for car companies to do that
    • Oct 29, 2010 4:27:57 pm
    true. there's only one.

    that is weird that they would make a dummy one though.. why not just leave it offset like the xB?

    Its odd but its true. I plan to make mine a working tail light here after I get the underglow, I really don't see why they would go so far but not finish the job.

    they're just keeping up with the asymmetrical tradition as well as probably cost.

    wow thats really dumb, that would make you fail inspection prior a driver license test then. I dont think DMV employee's would believe you its a "dummy" reverse light.

    Is there a plug for it? If there is I would put in a bulb there.

    no plug, no hole, no wiring

    and no failure in an inspection.

    1 guy couldnt take his test b/c the DMV claimed his TBL was out. lol

    guess quite a few people will be modding their 2nd gen tc tail light to have 2 reverse lights. If I had one I would have too!
    • Nov 15, 2010 9:49:01 am
    wow, this is one feature i didnt know it had

    huge fail with scion on that, i thought they'd learn with the 2nd gen xbs but i guess not..

    Yeah I would have to do that because one reverse light looks funny and me being as into lighting as I am this would be a must do!

    I took mine to the dealer this morning at even most of the service guys had no idea it came with one light. I found it very odd but oh well.
