    I like my first Tacoma, overall .. but I miss the auto shut-off delay on the headlights. The lights go out as soon as I open the door. It would be nice if they stayed on for a few seconds- until I get to the house. My other vehicles do. Anybody got any ideas how to change this?

    thanks!

    It's weird...and I honestly don't know how - but last summer I remember mine staying on for a bit after I closed the door and then shutting themselves off after a bit.

    I don't know if there was some sort of sequence involved with the key, turning engine off, opening the door, position of the lights...?? Or what?

    I never had time to play with it.

    Those lights usually make me think I left my lights on, and it bugs me so much I have to watch them shut off...

    Never seen it though on a Tacoma.

    oh, it would be nice too if I could just use the dash switch to turn on the dome light...
