I want to switch them on. The car was registered in March 2011 and there are no instructions in the manual for switching them on automatically.
Is this a facility on my car, or do I have to switch the lights on by way of the light stalk each time I start the car?
Hello again Ray- Thank you for your reply and info - Yours is the early version then - the later ones are on auto.With yours you have to switch them each time.Now - on some Ray, Toyota dealers can re program the system / module to have them activate as you suggest - what you would need to do is give a local dealer a call - give them the VIN of the car.. and they will be able to tell you if your particualr car, via its VIN, can be done -or not.... so its worth a call...Let me know how you go..and / or let me know if you need anything further on this..~~~>>>>>>~ Meanwhile - Please do click on the "Exc / Ok rating" for me at this time.. Thank you in advance for that . ..Note that you can get back to me anytime at all after doing the rating - it doesn't close you out -- Best Rgds, MIKE.

Thanks Mike, I thought it was the case, but I wanted to be sure. I don't fancy taking it to a Toyota dealer. I hoped it was easy fix like with the door locks.
