Overhead DVD power source comes from the dome light. It is in "constant on" position meaning the lights are always red even when the unit is off. When the unit is on, the lights are blue. How can I get my system to stay off completely until I want it on so that it does not drain my truck battery?

Check the dome light switch. I believe its between the map lights in the front overhead console. You can set it to Always Off, On with Doors, or Always On.
The Dome light and the cargo area light should come on when the door is open and the switch is set to door position, or when set to the always on position.
If only one of the lights come on change the bulb of that light. If neither light comes on change the fuse.
I believe the instrument panel fuse block is located on the passenger side of the center console, to the left of the glove box near the floor. The cover usual lists where and what each fuse does. Look for Interior Lighting, I believe #23. Pull the fuse and check if its broken. If it is replace it. If not you may have electrical issues.
... Sorry to hear about this.
Have you checked all the fuses; to see if they are good?
I would start with checking all the fuses, the dome light bulb and burnt wires. (burnt wires will smell) If you didn't smell plastic burning while hooking up the DVD player, then you're okay. But check anyway.
If you can't solve the problems, call the Toyota service department for help. They may be nice and give you some help.
WELL SOMETHING IS DRAINING YOUR BATTERY ITS PROBABLY YOUR ALTERNATOR YOU CAN ALSO YOUR YOUR WIRING MAKE SURE THAT THERE ISN'T A CIRCUIT THAT WON'T SHUT (OPEN ALL THE TIME) MEANING AN ELECTRICAL CONTINUALLITY THAT WILL DRAIN YOUR BATTERY
check for a dome light on and off switch by the headlight switch or check to see if the dash light dimmer is not turned down the whole way. if those are good then check to see if the door switch by the hinge is not stuck
The dome lamp has a switch that can be put into several positions. "Door" "Off" and "On" If you want the light to come on when you open the door then you must have the switch in the "Door" position.
The "Off" position will only let the dome lamp work when you override it with the dash control and the "On" position will leave the light on at all times - door open or not.
(I'm assuming you mean the light on the unit)... chances are whomever installed it hooked the wire for the dome light up to constant/accessory by mistake or convenience... if there used to be a dome light in that location, all you have to do is drop it down and find the correct wire to tag, if there wasn't you will have to run one up from either you foot wells or another location or you can just put it to a switch. If you were referring to you factory dome light, it may be a broken door trigger, or a bad relay.
