Interior Front Light - Is It Meant To Come On With Door?

Not sure if I'm going daft or not..... I thought the front interior light used to come on when the front doors opened (2004 RAV4 XT3 D4D)... Now, although the main cabin light above the rear seats comes on, the front light does not. Will illuminate if the manual switch is activated, and as there's only one space for a lamp in the front I assume electrically it's OK.

Could I have done anything to stop it working, or am I imagining that it used to come on ?

Anyone with a similar vehicle - could you confirm if your front light does come on before I spend ages trying to fix something that is working OK ?

Thanks

Just check the switch position, on the later model there is off...on...DOOR first two positions self explanatory..DOOR setting means it comes on when door is opened..Hope this helps :thumbsup:

Doesn't come on in my 4.2 Always thought it was crazy but the dealer said it was designed like that! The rear seats and the luggage area lights come on but hell I don't drive from there!

You'd think there would be one - but on the one I have, the only switch that there is is to turn on the light manually - it's single position (ie on/off) on the front light, and 2 position (ie on/off/door) on the rear seat light.....

Thought it might be something to do with opening / closing the front drivers door a number of times whilst ignition key turned (seem to recall a post somewhere where door codes were used to set certain controls, but can;t remember if it was Toyota or Audi that used that system - partner used to have an Audi A4)

I am pretty sure there is a rear light by the luggage door activated by rear door in one switch position (DOOR), with other positions being ON and OFF.

The side doors activate the general passenger area light centrally fitted (not rear passenger only really) if switched to DOOR position, again with other positions being ON and OFF.

The front light are manual only and are officially Map Reading lights, not interior lights and is activated only by a push on/push off type switch rather then a position switch

    • Toyota statement on Russian local manufacturing and vehicle imports
      Like everyone around the world, Toyota is watching the ongoing developments in Ukraine with great concern for the safety of people of Ukraine and hopes for a safe return to peace as soon as possible

      As a company with operations in Ukraine and Russia, our priority in dealing with this crisis is to ensure the safety of all our team members, retailer staff, and supply chain partners.

      We are also monitoring global developments and will make necessary decisions as required.

      The business status of Toyota’s European operations is as follows:

      Toyota Ukraine has stopped all activities as of 24 February (Toyota Ukraine = sales and after sales operations; 37 retail locations; distributor owned by Sumitomo Corp.)

      Toyota Motor Russia will stop production at its St-Petersburg plant from 4 March and has stopped imports of vehicles, until further notice, due to supply chain disruptions (Toyota Russia = sales and after sales operations; 168 retail locations; and one plant in St Petersburg manufacturing RAV4 and Camry models for the Russian market with exports to Belarus, Kazakhstan and Armenia)

      Other manufacturing and sales operations in the rest of Europe are not impacted.

      Toyota affiliates in countries bordering Ukraine have already taken concrete actions to support Ukrainian employees and their families, including facilitating the transfer of close family members from Ukraine to other destinations with the provision of accommodation, food, and other support to meet their needs. Further humanitarian support is being planned and will be announced in due course.
