I'm having a bit if trouble. On my 2010 prerunner sport. My relay is behind the dash. Took the relay out and then took the relay apart and put a piece if rubber between the contacts. Bamb both sockets on all the time. The very next day neither sockets work. I accidentally plugged in my flashlight to the cig outlet. Pulled the relay and used just a jumper wire. The cig outlet works now but not the acc plug. Checked the fuses and all looks good.

Did you make your own jumper or is there somewhere I can buy one? I'm not electrical savvy

Talking Jerry

Saw this in another thread, and am most definitely going to do it. Just got done fixing a short in my turn signal (converted to fog/running light), and was quite impressed to the attention to detail that Toyota put into a repair manual dedicated solely to plug housings. The thing is 430 pages long. As far as the power outlet, this drove me nuts from the get-go, so it's getting jumpered!!

Nice write-up! I've been looking for this. It has been an annoyance of mine that I'm not able to charge my phone while at work or running errands. I understand the logic behind why Toyota does it this way...but its still nice to be able to charge something while away. As to the concerns about coming back to find a dead battery, I suppose it could happen depending on many different factors...but every domestic vehicle I've owned does this already with no problems. Heck, even my Nissans had a constant "hot" IIRC...

Figured out why mine wouldn't work. I had my charger plugged into the cigarette lighter outlet instead of the accesory power outlet. This mod only makes the accessory outlets hot all the time. Maybe I would have realized this if I would of read it thorougly. Great mod tho.

great to know!
Question: Can you mod your headlights so you are able to turn them off when the truck is running?! This is one thing that always makes me angry :@
Whenever my truck is running, the headlights come on with no way to turn them off.

NOTE: On the headlight controls coming off of the steering wheel, it has a couple turning settings. The setting that should be "off" is really on-and then the next twist they get a little brighter-then I still have my "brights" when I laterally move the control stick. This is normal, right?

^^ that's what I did-works great. Did those 3 mods. DLR mod didn't do what I wanted it to do.. If my tuck is running, the headlights must be on. I want a way to be able to turn them off (example be in park with truck running and have headlights off)
