    Does anyone know where the ambient light sensor is located that operates the brightness of the dash lights on a 2011 model TRD Sport Doublecab? My radio lights dim and get bright at dusk and dawn in a flashing type mode. Need to know where the sensor is located and any other help correcting this problem would help.

    On other cars I have seen it on the center of the dash or on the driver's side. Look for a little eye or bulb-looking thing.

    I know there isn't one on mine; it changes with the headlights. Might be a new option:notsure:

    Thanks for the help guys. Guess I'll just have to check a little further on why they flash at times.
