While daytime running lights can help other drivers see you more easily, there are some situations where they might not be very convenient. If you’re wondering how to turn off the lights on your
Matrix, you have a couple of options.
Your headlight control knob can be moved to the DRL OFF option if it has one, as some Toyotas do.
A Toyota Service Center may also be able to permanently disable your DRLs if you want, but this would also prevent your automatic headlights from working as well. They should be able to give you more information if you have additional questions about how they operate.
Hope this helps! As you continue taking care of your Toyota Matrix, you’ll want to protect it from the unexpected with the right car insurance policy. If you’re not sure where to start with insurance shopping, the
app can help light the way!
