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.

I had the install done at CT in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. I did not go for the $25 kit and went with a kit manufactured by Standard Auto Parts (DRL-1). Check out the Tundra Solutions Forum(DRL's Issue Thread)posted by me. Installed in March/07 by CT electrical tech(his 1rst time), the unit was not available at CT but was picked up at a local auto parts supplier in PA. Cost about $140 for parts and install.
I received detailed instructions from Standard Auto website as to install specific to the Toy Tundra(2005). To date unit works well with all the features of OEM. Good luck. If u need more info email.
