High beams illuminate with reduced output as daytime running lights when the engine is running. DRLs turn off when you turn on the headlights. I don’t know what they do when you turn on the park lights.

If you have the headlights on then turn off the engine, the headlights and all lights will turn off when you take the key and turn on again when you start the engine.

i would think that if i have the collum switch in the OFF position all my exterior lights will be off even if engine is running....so what happens if say at night im parked on the street with engine running but dont want any exterior lights on?......are you telling me its not possible....?.........i cant see how toyota would not give you that opition....my 02 camry has same swith but in OFF position all my exterior lights are off !

Set the park brake if you don’t want DRLs while the engine’s running. There’s probably a way to disable DRLs by removing a relay, doing a key dance or using Techstream.

I used to have an '05 LE, pretty much like yours. Yes, setting the parking brake will turn off the DRLs, but I don't remember if the brake has to be set before starting the van.

If you want to disable the DRLs semi-permanently, you can pull a jumper (it looks like a fuse) in the fusebox. I don't remember it label, but it is in the corner that is farthest forward (towards the bumper, not the windshield) and closest to the center of the van.

how can i disable the drls but still have use of my bright beam when needed
