When I get out of my 2009 Toyota Tacoma Truck the headlights

Customer Question

When I get out of my 2009 Toyota Tacoma Truck the headlights turn off. Then when I lock the car with my remote key the lights turn back on and don't shut off automatically. Any ideas why this may happen?

I have also tried punching the lock on the remote a 2nd or third time to see if it will turn off the lights after they have been activated.

Hi, I apologize for the delayed response. Does the truck have a security system installed in it? Look around to the left area of the steering column and please tell me if you see a little red LED and if that LED also doubles as a push button. Please let me know and we can take it from there.
