I have a 1993 Toyota pick-up truck with the famous 22-R motor with just over 200,000 miles. I recently drove the truck on a fairly long trip to another state. After running at highway speeds for about 2 hours I pulled over to a rest area for a brief stop. When I started the truck to continue my travels, the battery and brake lights remained on. Other than that, the truck ran well. On my return trip I didn’t make the rest stop and the lights never came on.
This has happened on more than one occasion. It doesn’t happen when I’m driving in-town but anytime I drive for an hour or more, turn the truck off and then turn it back on again I have the same issue.
I need to make another out-of-state trip soon and would like to know if this is something that I need to worry about or fix.
