    Quick question....I have 09 TRD Off-Road


    I was driving home from the airpot last night and noticed the A-Trac button was illuminated (near the aux jack). i have never noticed this before. Also, the Fog Lamp button was illuminated as well as the DAC butotn. However, the Diff Lock button, VSC button, Side Airbag button, etc were not illuminated.

    My question is which buttons are supposed to be iluminated when the headlamps are on?

    Does anyone have a picture of the stock 09 TRD -Offroad dash lit up showing all of the buttons.

    thanks.

    I think they all have a faint illumination when the headlights are on. They get much brighter when actually engaged. It depends on how much your cab illumination is turned up or down as to how much you can see them. I can confirm this for you, but I'll have to wait until tonight.

    What I am interested in finding out is which of the TRD Off-Road buttons actually light up. Currently, the Downhill assist button, the fog light, and the atrac button all light up. The other buttons (ie Diff lock, Traction Control, Sid Airbag off buton, etc) do not light up. I just noticed that it looks odd. I would think all should light up or none.

    thanks.

    The RR Diff Lock button should light up. I found mine in the middle of the night on Saturday, because it was glowing. Check fuses.

    After banging on the dash with my hand, Most of the buttons now light up. I don't believe these ever lit up properly since I have bought the truck. Does anyone know where the connector is that is probably loose? Do I need to take much of the dash apart to fix this?

    thanks.

    Mine flicker all the time. :eek:


    My fog lamp button was out for about 3 months, then miraculously it came back on and hasn't had a problem since.


    My AC panel lights did the same thing!
