This makes no sense. "stays on when outside"? The opposite is "goes off when
inside". Are you talking about the car being indoors? In the garage?

Then, there's "goes out when dark". Are you saying that during the day, the
high beams don't work?

Sorry if not the case, but I'm beginning to think these guys from
Autoboardz are trolls...or Fools.

He's talking about the high-beam light (indicator) INSIDE the car. He is
wrongly confusing the DRL indicator with the High Beam indicator, and the
reason it "goes out" when it's dark is because he is turning the lights on
fully!


The reason the Dealer could not find the problem...is because there IS
none...

Hmmm....

Meanwhile, I'm trying to deal with my windshield washer, which has stopped
working as of yesterday. The tank's got fluid. The tubes attached to the
hood are black, so no way to get a visual clue. I can hear the pump working.
The car ran for 3 hours yesterday, including some long idling time, so I
don't think the tubes or nozzles are frozen. But, it's been around 10
degrees here. The tank (in the Tacoma) sits below any heat source in the
engine compartment. So, my theory is that the fluid my mechanic added was
crap, and some fitting at the bottom of the tank is frozen. I'm about to
warm up some fluid indoors, to baby bottle temperature, and see if it helps.
