Adding daytime running lights to a 2008 Toyota Sienna
My husband and I bought a used 2008 Toyota Sienna from Baltimore to import into Ontario. The dealer assured us that it had daytime running lights however when he arrived in Baltimore it turns out the dealer was incorrect. I have called around in Toronto and neither Canadian Tire or the the Toyota service depts I have called know whether daytime running lights can be added until they see the car. My husband is stuck in Baltimore until this problem is solved. Can drl be added to 2008 Toyota Siennas or not?

first, your vehicle is under factory warranty so I wouldn't play with anything. Second make sure that the emergency brake is completly off, third some vehicle drl systems only work when the vehicle is taken out of park. I hope this helps.
Just hard wire the lights into anything that is hot when the car is running. If your looking for some kind of alternate solution please let me know. Also did you want them on also when the headlights are off? You can also hard wire them with a switch inside the cab and that way you can flip the switch whenever you would like. Thank you, Lee
Even though the Sienna is not "supposed" to be equipped with day time running lights in the US, IT IS! Remove the under hood fuse panel cover, in the lower left hand corner of the fuse box there is an empty fuse socket to the left of the two 10 amp headlight fuses. Simply take one of your spare fuses (it doesn't mater which one, I used one of the 2 spare 30 amp fuses) and plug it into the open socket. BINGO, you now have daytime running lights! Pretty slick eh?? Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted if you need more information.
No. You do NOT want to put 15" rims on this car. That will change a lot of things, and they all will be bad. The 15" rims will create problems with the ABS, and the ABS will not work properly.
Secondly, the speedometer will be way off, as the speedo is calibrated for the 16s. Third, and probably most important, your handling will be severly compromised. Please don't do the 15s.
Its not worth the problems that you will encounter.
