Firstly my apologies if this is a topic already covered but I searched for interior light and it ignored the word interior and gave me loads of topics on light. I tried searching for interior and it told me it was too common a word so had ignored it!! Onviously I am too common, or that is a stupid bug in the forum search tool.

Anyway, the issue I have is that suddenly the interior lights (front and back) do not come on when I open the doors. I have tried the settings on the switches on the lights and they seem ok ( and the bulbs all work). Also the puddle lights dont come on.

Have I tweaked a setting somewhere?

Did you download settings from myToyota to your car?
If yes, then that is the problem. It messes up the settings in the car because of a bug.

You can fix it by going into the vehicle settings menu on the center display. Select vehicle settings and then lighting settings. (i guess the menu's are called something like this, my car is in the Dutch language).

Here you have to set the timeouts to something other than off.
Then the lights will work again.

If the menu is greyed out... Make sure the car is fully turned on and in P. Wait for a minute.

Ah -I think you have spotted the prolem. I was playing about with internet connection so I probably did mess up the settings as you describe. I will try your solution in the morning. Thanks. Are there any other settings I need to adjust?

the light settings are in the customization screen and they default to off if you start playing, you also need to have the engine running for the settings to take

Yes all fixed now thanks. Vehicle settings/vehicle customization/light settings did the trick.

I had the same concern with my interior light not coming on when the doors opened. At the same time my keyless entry stopped working but I could still unlock the car with the buttons on the key fob, these are both settings that I hadn't changed or even knew existed :(

Timmo how long did you wait, it can take a minute or two for the vehicle page to light up, start the car and be patient and it should light up

And if you click on the word on the top of the page then you must get another page (Engine running)

And a little more info can be usefull

If you tried to do this last night the website was having technical issues. It wasn't working correctly for anyone.

Try again later today. Should be resolved.

I changed the timings on the Device Settings page as in your pic, above, then clicked on receive settings from Toyota EU the car, it flashed up to say it had received the info. I am not convinced it has changed them back but will check later. My theory is that Toyota have changed their portal for UK users. it is mytoyota.uk whereas this is syncing with mytoyota.eu. The same thing happens with Google 'send to car', I have set it up correctly, but when you enter your destination and select your car you then click on send and it links to the Toyota Europe site, which asks for a user name and password and my UK details don't work in the Europe site. I have raised this with Toyota but they don't seem to be very tech savy. Hope that makes sense Though having said that it does upload journeys from the web site to the car without any problem.
