Interior light

Post by Alexr » Wed Mar 29, 2017 10:03 pm

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?
All the best

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.

It is one of the many bugs concerning software in the car :(

But it drives great :)

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 :(
