    Hello,

    Is there a way to have the headlights turn on automatically when vehicle starts?
    In my tundras i have to manually turn them on.
    2008-present year

    I live up north and its dark most of the day, also operating any of my vehicles its company policy to operate the vehicle with the lights on all the time, i have many staff failing to do so.

    You sounded more like headlights than DRL.

    Don't ever turn the headlights off so it is always on when the engine is running . it will automatically turn off after certain seconds when you turn off the engine

    Do they all have the "auto" option on the column? If so, you could put them all on auto and tape over the sensor so it thinks its always dark.

    I'm curious about the Forty tundras.
    Are they regular cab, long beds for hauling and towing?
