    DAYTIME RUNNING LIGHT DISABLING PROCEDURE

    Models:
    All Models

    Introduction
    Some customers may request to have the Daytime Running Lights (DRL) on their Toyota vehicle disabled. These customers may live or work in military bases or in communities that have light-sensitive gates or guardhouses. This bulletin provides instructions for disabling the feature on the Toyota vehicles listed below. If the Daytime Running Lights (DRL) have been previously disabled, the information in this bulletin can be used to enable the feature at the request of the customer.

    IMPORTANT :please be sure the customer is informed that when the Daytime Running Lights (DRL) are being disabled, although it is not required by the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards for safety compliance, it has been listed as a safety feature in advertising brochures. In addition, on models equipped with the Twilight Sentinel feature, the headlights will be defaulted to a manual system and will no longer function automatically.
