Automatic Headlight Shutoff

1766 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  UnSub
Just picked up the V8 4WD 4Runner and can't figure out why the headlights don't shut off automatically after a few seconds. Owner's manual says the time can be adjusted, but I watched it for 5 minutes after locking the door and they didn't turn off. Any ideas?

Lights should go out after 30 seconds or when you push lock twice on the remote. The max it could be set to (I believe) is 1 min. The only thing that would prevent them going off, excluding malfunction, is a door left open...

I went out and tested a bunch of scenarios on mine to see what would happen. The only thing that prevented the lights from going off within 30 seconds was a door open.

Sorry...I realize this isn't much help...
The headlights must be turned on while the ignition is on for the delay to work. I discovered they will stay on if you just turn them on before starting the vehicle.
