#309 of 351 DRL module/kit
Mar 14, 2007 (10:45 am)
I just imported a 2005 Toyota Tundra 4WD W/O DRL's into Saskatchewan, Canada. DRL's are mandatory and I am trying to find the easiest method to install them to pass our Federal Inspection for imported vehicles. Does anyone know of a supplier that mkes a DRL conversion module? Another method is to obtain a wiring schematic for this truck and wire it myself( I am some what of a do-it-yourself guy) but can't get the diagram w/o paying some online company $$$ and then not sure if it's the right diagram. Any assistance is welcome. Thanks

I'm in the same situation with two cars I imported from the US. Canadian Tire sells a kit for $25. I thought it looked cheap and not so easy to install, but after searching around for something better, this kit doesn't look so bad.
Please let me know if you find anything else better.

I had my 2005 Toyota Tundra done on Monday,Mar 26, the $25 kit didn't have a resistor to reduce the voltage to the headlights(reduces glare)and wasn't recommended for Toyota vehicles so CT got a more expensive DRL(DRL-1) kit from a parts supplier($75) made by Standard; a much more durable looking kit then the cheap one. Install was easy even tho Toyota vehicles are switched on the ground side rather than the supply side like most GM,Ford and Chrysler/Dailmer vehicles.
It took about 1.5 hrs(1rst time mech had installed this unit)Cost $125.00 but seems to work fine(truck passed the Fed Inspect and SK safety inspection with flying colors!

I am in a similar situation as you....the $25 DRL Kit at CT did not work on the Tundra...pls advise as to the CT you had this done and who "Standard" is....I can give this to my CT Service Manager to make contact. Thanks

For God's sake don't let CT touch the DRL's. I got Toyota to do it. Have heard bad stories of CT screwing up this. Toyota dealer told me that they caused $9000. electrical damage to a Prius and Toyota had to fix it although CT did pay the shot. They also screwed up my buddies Sienna Van and DRL don't work now. Cost might be over $150 though but done right. Regards

I hear you...I will be extremely careful in deciding to let CT touch the truck....they do have one mechanic here who is very good and I would trust. They did a Benz for me a couple of years ago and it worked out okay. Anyway, thanks for the "heads up." I will source a Toyota dealer to see what they can do.
