Customer Question

I would like daytime running light disabled on my 2006 RAV4
Submitted: 5 years ago.
Category: Car
Expert:  Chris Gast replied 5 years ago.
there is a relay for the daytime running lights if u have a owners manual it will be labled drl no.4 relay should be able to remove it and the daytime lights wont work but the normal headlight function should still remain.
Expert:  Chris Gast replied 5 years ago.
the snapping sound really could be a lot of things but probably nothing major to worry about. the ticking sound is just valve lash its nothing really to worry about a lot of vehicles have that issue excpesially toyotas. the whistling sound is probably just the sound of the air coming into the engine.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
An what about the stearing wheel vibration while idling in gear?
Expert:  Chris Gast replied 5 years ago.
thats probably due to a motor mount being a little weak. if u can have someone sort of pry up on the engine while its idling and if the vibration goes away thats the prob. I have seen that before.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
My car has only 17K on it and I already have all these problem. Very strange...
Expert:  Chris Gast replied 5 years ago.
Ive seen it happen. but most of those problems aren't really (problems) to auto makers they just see that as normal expecially the vibration a lot of vehicles do that.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I still would like it to be fixed before my car goes out of warranty (in 1 month)
What would be appropriate steps to accomplish that. Again I have been to the dealer twice already
Expert:  Chris Gast replied 5 years ago.
if u take it to a auto shop that is indepentandtly owned that does warranty work maybe they can do it for u and it will still be covered. if not try taking it to a different dealership and see if those things are covered under warranty. u don't have to take it to the dealership u bought it from, all toyota dealerships can handle your warranty.
Expert:  Chris Gast replied 5 years ago.
did removing the relay work?
Expert:  Chris Gast replied 5 years ago.
make sure to accept the question so i can get something out of my time spent.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Sorry, but none of my questions was answered completely, just general info which is widely availabe on the web. I would like to ask same questions Toyota expert if possible.
Expert:  Chris Gast replied 5 years ago.
