- DISABLED DayTime Running Lights How To- 2007 Yaris! -

For those looking to disable DRL's on their new Yaris, look no further!

If your Yaris doesn't have DRL's, ignore the post.

If you don't want to disable your DRL's, ignore the post.

To those that have been searching for the cure, enjoy!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Simple 5 minute job. There is no TSB out yet from Toyota, but it doesn't get any easier then this!


Tools Needed:
Medium size phillips screwdriver... thats it!

To gain enough room to access the DRL Relay, you need to first remove the steering column plastic cover.. Here's how!

Now, look under your steering wheel, you will see the height adjustment lever to tilt the steering wheel column, up and down.
Just to the right of the lever, you will see a Silver phillps head screw, remove it.


Now, with your hands on the steering wheel, at 9 o'clock, and 3 o'clock, turn the wheel 1/4 turn to the right. You will see a Black phillips head screw, remove it.


Now turn wheel back to center, and repeat for other side. Turn wheel 1/4 turn to the left. You will see a Black phillips head screw, remove it.


The steering column plastic can now be removed.. pull it down and towards you, it will snap out of place.

Now look back behind the dash, up and over towards the radio, and you will see a black box about the size of a pack of cigaretts with a brown lable, "TOYOTA RELAY ASSY RUNNING LIGHT 82810-52040."
Depress the white tab, and unhook the plug from the relay box.



Your finished!

Pictures, and full review of my H4 HIDs and LED parking lights tomorrow.

Your welcome.

Since when does the 2007 Yaris have DRL? My IS 250 has DRL, but I haven't seen nor heard that on the Yaris.

ALL Liftbacks, in the US with Cold Weather Package HAVE DRL's.

If your Yaris doesnt have DRL's, ignore the post.

If you dont want to disable your DRL's, ignore the post.

If you want to ignore your safety, enjoy the post! But, don't let your insurance know you are turning the DRL's off.. or no more discounted premiums for you.

FYI - I always drive with my headlights ON, but when you install HIDs with DRL's, you have to turn the lights on first, then start the car, or the bulbs will flicker, and screw up the ballasts.

Thats why I choose to find a way to disable them.

Thanks Chris07LB

Nice post. If anyone wants to just get rid of their foglights, let me know. I'll buy them and send you the OEM filler thingies.

One question. The DRL light on the dash won't come on, right?

Ok, I'm the weired odd ball here... what if mine didn't come with DRL (US Sedan) anybody know if all I have to do to enable them is plug the relay in? Or are the front light lenses diffrent and use a seprate bulb for the DRL? Yeah, I can always turn on my lights, but I'm lazy in an odd way..

Liftback's, was the key word.

I can only speak for Liftbacks in the US with Cold Weather Package.

I have seen on other Toyota Forums, where non-DRL Toyota's were able to add DRL's. EVERY case was different, so who knows just how "involved" adding DRL's to a Yaris is.

FYI - there is no "extra" bulb just for the DRL's! Take a peak under your dash, like my above How-To, and see if maybe by chance the plug is there.
