96 4 Runner - with vip toyota alarm/headlight issues!
The headlights on my 96 4 runner turn on when the car is off and the headlights are off. I am thinking it has something to do with the alarm
and need to know how to disarm it.....but I welcome other solutions if
someone has had this problem. At one time back in 98 or so a salesman
showed me how to disable it simply in the car and I cant remember and the dealer cant remember either? Thanks in advance
does it have the option on the rearview for delayed lamps? if so turn that off, i am unsure if yotas do it by on my exploder there is a switch on the self dimming rearview that says lamp delay or something along htose lines. if you turn it on the lights will stay lit for a short period of time after you exit the vehicle so you can see where you are going. try looking into that
I am having a similar problem on my 1996 SR5 4Runner. My driver side door sensor has been broken for some 100k miles so i've had a jump or two in my day. Today being one of those days, i jumped my car and got it started. when it was idling the headlights stayed on even when the switch was off, but it was just the headlights, not the tail lights.
When i drove the mile to my mechanic to have him take a quick look at the issue, guess what, the lights turned off. and we couldn't get the problem to repeat. So i returned home and a half hour later looked outside and saw the front lights had turned on again.
i have the fuses pulled so the car will start tomorrow hopefully.
I had just put a new battery in the truck last week. I also told a buddy that i was approaching 220k miles headed to 300k. jinx.
I got the same problem with my 98 4Runner; headlights have a mind of there own... It apears like it might be part of the alarm system cause I can temporarily shut them off with the key fob. Please help
