    Is there a way you can make the daytime running lights come on when you turn your parking/running lights on?

    So does that make them turn on when you turn the side marker lights on and then turn off when you turn the side marker lights off?

    Installing DTRL on a 2010 tacoma I use to have to wrap the green wire around a spark plug wire but the 2010 doesn't have spark plug wires so does anyone know the alternative hook up?

    Use a scotch lock on the positive for the marker, run that wire to the light bulb plug and cram it in there! Silicone to seal.
