Hi

if I cover the sensor I get the tail light on,
have someone cover the censor with out problem

in the manual P-268

The sensor may not function properly if an
object is placed on the sensor, or anything
that blocks the sensor is affixed to the
windshield.
Doing so interferes with the sensor
detecting the level of ambient light and
may cause the automatic headlight system
to malfunction.

Sorry I don't understand the point of your post.

Are you saying that if you cover the sensor your tail lights are on but front DRL lights not?

If so the simple solution is don't cover the sensor! :lol:

DRL
front lights is ON
Tail lights is OFF

Where I am from I can not drive only with the DRL Because DRL don't have tail lights ON
I need to have light on 24/7 front and tail

So I test to cover the sensor and I get all light on when I using the DRL
Nice to getting the light on automatic front and tail

Don't know how dark outside it need to be for the sensor
but in winter time I drive to work in dark and drive home in dark so DRL will I hope have front and tail lights ON

Sigster if your settings are the same as my set up, then when it is dusk the lights front and rear lights will come on. Look at night with light switch in auto position
or switch to headlights on at all times
I think that is what you asked

I think he is trying to say that where he is from the front and rear lights have to be on during the day and the only way to achieve this is to cover the sensor.

Rick.Mark Thanks

Yes I can turn the lights on! :) but I was thinking how I can have this automatic
will it harm the system if I cover the sensor over the summer time it is to bright for the sensor to turn on the front and rear lights then I turn the switch in in auto position

English is not my native language.

I think only Volvo has DRL that keep the tail lights on as well during daylight running

I agree with Mark. Just leave the lights always on. I believe they turn off when ignition is off.
Thing I will just turn it on and off :) if I leave the lights always on I get warning buzzer
I bought C-HR Center Hybrid ,Toyota need to have options for Daytime running light in settings

Thanks all for the Replay

There are no harmfull issues covering the sensor.

But:
1. Your dashboard lights will be dimmed
2. The sun angle detector will not work so the airconditioning will not perform optimal.

In techstream there is no option to turn the taillights on with drl. You can disable drl all together.

I'm not sure if there is an option to turn off the lights warning buzzer.

If I have some time this weekend I will hookup techstream to check if the light buzzer can be turned off.

As far as I know the lights will be turned off when you turn off the car. If the buzzer can be disabled, leaving the lights on would be the best option.

I will post back if it is possible. Your dealer can configure your car. This is 10 minutes of work and most of the dealers do it for free as service.
