Shut off daytime running lights?

I have a 1999 toyota corolla LE. I'm looking for a way to shut off the daytime running lights without disabling my headlights as a whole? In case you don't know this means the headlights are on all the time but when I turn the stalk the taillights come on as well. Is there some separate way to shut them off ?

You can't disable them it's illegal. If you need to shut them off while the engine runs say at drive-in, apply the parking brake (this works on some but not all cars, and don't try driving with parking brake engaged just one click).

I have a 2006 US model Corolla LE with a manual trans, and I noticed while parked on a slight incline that the car would start rolling backwards before the parking brake was all the way down. While it did this, the DRLs did not turn on. My parking brake has a few notches before it's all the way down. After a while, I learned to lower it not quite all the way while driving during the day, and have gone without DRLs for nearly four years now with no problems apart from the "BRAKE" light being on in the dash all the time.

I've tried this on automatic Corollas of co-workers, and it worked for them as well.

My 2000 Toyota Corolla headlights will not turn on during the night, and stay on during the day


Your Corolla has daytime running lights (DRLs). A photocell determines whether it is day or night. Your DRLs turn on automatically in daytime without you operating the light control ("headlight") switch. Your DRLs are actually your headlights on low beam. At night, the photocell senses it is dark and disables the DRLs. When you set the light control ("headlight") switch to HEAD, the head relay closes and the headlights should turn on. Since they don't, I suggest opening the engine room junction block and checking the 40A MAIN fuse and the 10A LEFT HEAD (UPPER) and RIGHT HEAD (UPPER) fuses. In engine room relay block 5, check the 10A LH-LWR HEAD and RH-LWR HEAD fuses. Replace any blown fuses and the headlights should be working normally again

I have a 2007 Corolla LE. With my DRL, front lights are working but the rear ones just turned off. I checked all four bulbs, they are working fine when brakes are applied during the day and night when...


Daytime Running Lights (DRL) feature only activates the front low beam headlights. The rear parking light are not turned on by the DRL, they only come on in dark conditions or by selecting the light manually.

I have 98 toyota corolla ce and the headlights stay on everytime i turn the engine on...my question is how can i turn them off in the daytime???


In Canada it's mandatory to have DRL(Daytime Running Lights). Your Corolla probably has this feature built in. it is a safety thing however I can understand you wanting them off if it's not the law where you live.
In our 1998 Corolla, I use the parking brake all the time - every time I park - and I've noticed the lights do not come on until I release the parking brake after starting the motor. When I park the car, until I shut off the engine, the lights stay on regardless of the parking brake status however, if I shut off the engine and restart with the parking brake on, the lights do not come on.
If you "adjust' the parking brake switch(i.e.: make e-brake light in your dash it stay on all the time) your lights will not go on until you turn them on via the multifunction lever(left side of wheel). This of course negates the benefits of the e-brake light working correctly (warning you that your e-brake is on or that your brake fluid level is low) which in itself is not so safe!
There is a fuse/relay (I think) in the big fusebox under the hood that has a DRL "spot", you might want to check if you can remove it and still turn the lights on manually when you want them on. Alternately, there is a fuse in the interior fuse box(in Canadian models anyway) labelled DRL. When that fuse is out, it seems the lights only turn ob when I turn them on manually.
Hope this helps and God bless,
Gilbert

1999 toyota corolla. Car would not shut off went


I assume the car is a petrol! to stop a petrol engine the ignition needs to be shut down! if there is over run happening there are a few reasons for this. There is a problem with ignition mudule! spark plugs coked up! or the cylinders are coked.
If the car is a Diesel model then the reason for this happening is the shut off valve on the fuel pump is at fault.

Hope this helps.

Dashboard lights went out while braking


the dashboard will be need to be taken apart to change the bulb. A fuse alone won't fix it. Also, the day time running lights are not meant to go off. They are a standard safety feature.

Which fuse do you take out to shut off the day time running lights???


In your fuse box you'll find the DRL relay. this is the one that you remove to shut the daytime running lights off. This fuse box or relay center is located under the hood.
