Yeah, several people have. Any Toyota dealer will fix it for free. It only applies to the first 2 or 3 years of 7th gen (like '00, '01, and maybe '02). I have an '04, so I haven't paid much attention to it.

300,000 KM/Sec. Its not just a good idea, its the law.

you will probably be running more of a risk taking it in to toyota then just leaving it be. thats how i feel about it anyways.

What will the dealer do? Will they install different bulbs? I want to tell them to install a switch where I can turn them on or off by just a click of a switch. Maybe thats too much to ask huh?

why yes it is. That IS indeed too much to ask.

I believe the delaer will change the capacitor, or whatever component leaks the low wattage needed for the DRL's.
