Default How to disable 2002 Sienna daytime running lights?


Is there a way to disable the lights other than cutting the wire as
indicated in the Toyota forums? Kinda figured there might be a special
/ oddball combo of switches etc that would do it.

TIA - Nate

Why the **** do you care? Get in the car and drive. You never see the
lights, they don't intrude on anything you do in or with the car.

Is this for installing HID lights? I hear there's a wiring harness
for this, after googling around a bit.

It's illegal to disable daytime running lights in Canada and in
Europe, but not in the US.

If someone works at a place that has a guard gate staffed by
armed guards, and a large sign at the kiosk states: "Dim
Lights!" (like a defense plant), then you'd damn-sure want
to turn off those headlights when approaching that kiosk!

THey, as well as anyone, know what DRL's are and that they can usually
not be dimmed.

Try another line of bs.

I doubt that immensely. Running lights are already dimmed, besides it's
a law in many places. There is no reason to disable daylight running
lights. They see you before you see them. In fact, I enabled mine even
though the 2004 Sienna LE came without DRL.

Agreed. People should co-operated and NOT try to defeat anything
that makes THEIR vehicle more visible to OTHER drivers. Just
because a few people have the eyes of eagles and think that THEY
can easily see an asphalt colored vehicle far enough away to pass
safely does NOT justify disabling DRL's. I'd fine them $1000 for
a first offense, then seize the vehicle on repeated offenses.

They THINK they have the eyes of eagles.
