Exclamation 05+ DRL (Daytime Running Lights) Install OEM

NOTE: 2009 Models use the same parts, but there are more harnesses plugged in as it has more features.

This is a fairly simple install You will need to order two parts:

Toyota Part # 82241-04030 is a relay and Part # 81980-35020 is a jumper.

This installation also works on 2003-2009 4Runners, but you will not use the jumper. You only need the relay Part # 82241-04030.

EDIT: as of 07/12/12 TRDParts4U has the DRL Kit. This includes the relay and jumper.

You will also need a 10mm socket wrench, a flat blade screwdriver, and a set of plyers (hopefully you will only need the socket wrench).

What you will be doing is replacing the current TURN SIGNAL RELAY with a new one + a jumper. The new relay will turn your FRONT TURN SIGNALS on when you don't have your headlights on and you are moving. This allows your truck to be seen better in all driving conditions.

Before you get started: DISCONNECT THE BATTERY - Otherwise you will set off your alarm!!!



Start at the drivers door and GENTLY remove the panel across the threshold of the door with your hands. It should un-snap from its place. Work your way from the back towards the dash.



This is what it should look like completely removed.



Next you will need to remove the foot rest. Gently pull straight out on the foot rest and it will un-snap from its mount.



After the foot rest has been removed, remove the rubber grommet that holds the kickplate in place. It pulls off just like the foot rest.

Continued...

The kickplate has two clips on it next to the door. If you pull the plate straight back towards the bed of the truck, it will un-snap from its mounts.



After you remove the kickplate, the directions differ for automatics and manual transmissions. Since I have a manual transmission, I have to remove the parking brake cover. It pulls straight off and un-snaps. If you have an automatic transmission, you would simply remove the storage bin. It too un-snaps from its mount.



Then you must remove the 10mm bolts that hold the lower dash assembly on to the truck. If I remember correctly there is only two, but here is a picture of them. They are underneath the parking brake and next to the door.



Once the lower dash assembly is removed, disconnect the security system, mirror controls, fog lights, and whatever other accessories you have in that lower assembly. This allows you to remove it completely to allow for more work space.

Now you can see the fuse box completely. There are 3 10mm bolts that you must remove to access the back side of the fuse box. It is easiest if you remove the "4th" bolt that hold the lower mounting arm in place. Trust me, you want to do this to make it easier on yourself.



The one on the right hand side is hard to see, but it is in the picture on the lower right hand side of the fuse box.

NOTE: The easiest thing to do is to unplug everything. I did this, but it can be frustrating matching up the wires to plugs when you put it all together. Don't worry, these harnesses will ONLY plug in where they are supposed to go!

Once you have removed the fuse box bolts, turn it over to expose where the current turn signal relay and the jumper plug in.

This is the current flasher relay that I am pointing out...



You will need to attach the new relay to the new jumper. I don't have a picture of this (sorry), but it is fairly simple. Again, they will only connect one way.

(And finally) Continued...

Once you have connect the two new parts together, you will need to plug them in to the slots shown here.



Okay, so now you are starting to plug things in left and right and you have this big black box just dangling around. Don't worry. This is an OEM Toyota install. They have a place for that. On the right hand side of the fuse box, there is a clip that this box snaps on too. It is shown here...



The wires comming off of that box also have a place. Just snap them in here...



Now you just need to reverse the disassembly process and put everything back together. Don't fret, everything has its own place.

Note: When you reconnect the battery - HAVE YOUR REMOTE IN HAND. As soon as you reconnect the batter, the alarm MAY go off. If it does, unlock your doors twice to disable it. Then re-lock and unlock your doors again to clear the alarm codes.

Your truck will now have Daytime Running Lights when all the following are true:

1)Your engine is running.
2)Your Parking Brake is disengaged.
3)You are in gear (automatics only).
4)Your headlights are not on.

The only two ways to turn these off is to turn off the vehicle or turn on the headlights (note: once the headlights are turned off and the engine is still running, the DRLs will come on again). I am currently in the process of trying to find which wire to run to a switch so that I can disable the DRLs only when I want too. I will keep this thread up-to-date if I find anything out.

Cheers!!!

This is a crappy picture. I will take a better one this weekend.

In any case, this is what it should look like:

So this automates the process of turning on your parking lights? So if they are set to off or or the parking light setting, the parking lights come on when the truck is started?

Oh and is this similar for the fog lights if you wanted to add them after market? Is there a new jumper / harness and switch that will let you plug them in OEM style?

It doesn't actually use the parking lights. Those lights are the small one on the outside of either headlight assembly. These are the lights on the inside (BIG orange lights). Normally these only come on if you have your hazards on, turn signal on, or if you lock/unlock you truck with the remote.

They are very large and very bright. These come on when your truck is:
Running + No Parking Brake + No Headlights.

When your headlights come on, these lights turn off (unless you are using your turnsignal/hazard lights). The fog lights are a different beast all together. I will do a write-up on those once I get the parts and install them.

Cheers!

I just recently ordered a fog light kit for my 06 I4 Access Cab. Hopefully it will go over well. I can't stand the plastic boots they put in the housings.

I don't really remember, the entire setup cost me $45 after shipping. The website I ordered from was a nightmare for customer service and it took them 3 weeks to get my order shipped.

I would check out ToyotaWorld.com. My boss has ordered stuff for his 06 Camry and 06 Tundra from them with great satisfaction.

I got them off of ebay. These are not OEM. I did not want to fork over the $350 for the kit. You still have to add an extra wiring harness because the $350kit does not include enough.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/05-07...QQcmdZViewItem

I got mine for 80.00 bucks with shipping and if they work then that sure as heck beats paying for 350 for them. I haven't gotten them yet in the mail, but I'll keep you guys posted.

You should definitely start a thread on them once you have them installed. I would love to know what is included, how you set it up (including auto-off etc...), how much, and how you like them. Pictures please!

Best of luck! Cheers!

I just wanted to say that 007tacoma wrote a great write up. Detailed with pics and everything. I love the way the drl's look (like fangs) and I did'nt know it was this easy. I thought I would have to pay someone to do that. You make it look doable for a layman like myself. I think I'll give it a go when I get the time.

Thanks man.

Thanks! I am glad that they look so good. It was fairly easy. The only thing is that Toyota built this truck on some tight specs. There isn't much room to work under there. I really suggest unplugging everything, but remember where it goes. That should give you enough room to work in there.

Cheers!

Well guys, I got my fog lights in from blinglights off of ebay. I did a rough placement in the OEM housing yesterday and it looks like they will require a little work to fit right. I had to go to my younger brother's high school graduation so I didn't have much time to work on it and its been raining all day here. The lights seem to be just a tad too small in diameter for a tight fit. It seems like i could somehow I could glue a rubber seal around the light for a tighter fit. I dont know how that would work due to the extreme heat that the headlamps get. The wiring harness it came with seems to be too short, but I hear this is a problem with any fog light kit you buy from, even the one from toyotaparts.com. As for mounting the fog lights in there, I am at a brick wall right now. The fog lights have brackets on each side where you bolt them in, when looking at the housing there is no clean way to do this without drilling into the side. Not that this is a problem, but the problem is the actual drilling process is going to be tricky since I dont know how I am going to drill into the side of the housing without taking off the entire bumper. If anyone has any suggestions just let me know. I'll get some pictures as soon as it clears up here. I am going to try to get this to work without having to fork over the extra $$

If it doesnt work I guess i'll buy the factory lamps off of ebay for 180.00 and use the wiring harness that came with blinglights. Still cheaper than 350.00 from toyotaparts.com

Here is the package. It includes the lights mounting brackets (for a brush guard or bull guard) switch, wiring harness, transformer (for the LED light around the lens), inline fuse.

I show a picture of the 2 mounts on either side of the lamp. The wiring diagram is pretty simple. The transformer is only used to lower the voltage for the LED light that is around the fog light. It is only used for looks. I will probably not even hook it up.

I plan on tapping into the parking lights to get the auto-on feature. I went to radio shack and picked up a 30amp auto relay. I plan on tapping into the parking light wire and running that wire into the switch and then run the switch out to the relay. This way it will act like the factory setup. I will have to have the parking lights on and the switch on in order for my fog lights to come on. That way I can just leave the switch on and whenever I turn on my lights the fog lights will come on as well. I attached a diagram what what I have in mind. Splice wires 1 & 3 if you want your switch to light up.

I show a picture of the 2 mounts on either side of the lamp. The wiring diagram is pretty simple. The transformer is only used to lower the voltage for the LED light that is around the fog light. It is only used for looks. I will probably not even hook it up.

I plan on tapping into the parking lights to get the auto-on feature. I went to radio shack and picked up a 30amp auto relay. I plan on tapping into the parking light wire and running that wire into the switch and then run the switch out to the relay. This way it will act like the factory setup. I will have to have the parking lights on and the switch on in order for my fog lights to come on. That way I can just leave the switch on and whenever I turn on my lights the fog lights will come on as well. I attached a diagram what what I have in mind. Splice wires 1 & 3 if you want your switch to light up.
Wish I could help you more on this, but I haven't even looked at the bumper setup yet. Are you going to change the fuse on the Parking lights to a higher amperage to sustain the parking and fog lights???

Also, you may want to start your own thread on this. That would allow you more exposure due to a subject like "Aftermarket Fog Lights in OEM Sockets", or something like that. Good luck.
