USA Automatic & DRL Sensor wire in the dash?

I got an 07 Highlander Sport, it's the really stripped model like I like. Simple! And it was a piece of cake to add fog lights, just buy the lights, the turn signal switch, and the relay and it all plugs in to existing wiring (thanks Toyota!) This stuff is all available thru Rock Auto, and cost about $150 in parts. Putting the relay in was the hard part.


So the switch as a light position for the auto/drl. No installed sensor in the dash, but there is a place for one. I'm hesitant to buy a sensor, or to punch out the hole in the dash. Gotta know, is there wiring for the sensor lurking underneath the hole? I suspect there is, but who knows?

I like DRL's. People are such sh***y drivers that any added visibility helps, and my Highlander is almost invisible--it's silver. If I can't get the DRLs to work, I'm gonna have to resort to a Jack in the Box antenna ball.

I agree about the DRLs. I am not sure but looking at the 2005 wiring diagram, the light circuits with and w/o are quite different. I know I was not able to put DRLs in my 2001 Base because the wiring was not there. One thing to check is if the BCM is the same part number on the Sport as the Limited.
I just leave the lights on for my 2001. The BCM turns them off when I open the driver door. The only downside is that the taillights are on, which gives less contrast for my brake lights for the idiot texting behind me. (Lost two cars to that in the past year).
Maybe just use the fog lamps?
