You probably won't ever use DAC in reverse, but if it did work with the selector in the "R" position, then you know it will work if you ever get the dashboard display to read "L". Knowing the answer to this means that you could stop worrying about the DAC problem and concentrate on the transmission problem.

I'm not sure what you mean by 180Km, I hope you don't mean 180 KPH. As long as the selector is in the "D" position, your transmission will run up through all the gears normally, no matter if it is a 4 or 5 speed transmission. Unless you really watch carefully for the shift points, or you know what RPM is normal for each transmission, I don't think the average driver could tell the difference.

The tests that I suggested will let you know which transmission you really have, and whether you really do have a DAC problem. I would certainly recommend you find out what the problem is before you go to the dealer. Some dealers have been know to take advantage of owners who do not understand what really needs to be repaired.

My 2008 RAV4 does not have a light in this position so I cannot answer your question with certainty. It's probably related to the switch used to disable traction control and VSC. Hopefully someone with a 2011 model can provide more information.

You could try pushing the trac disable button and see if the light comes on.

By the way, have you tried using DAC with the transmission in "R".

Or it was Friday afternoon at the factory.

My theory has been that

  1. Your 5 speed transmission and console selector had been replaced with a 4 speed version
  2. or Possibly that just the selector had been replaced
Either way, when the selector sent the "R" signal to the ECM, and "R" was displayed on the dashboard, that should have been enough to activate the DAC.

I suppose all you can do now is perform the acceleration test to determine if your transmission has been replaced with a 5 speed.

Do any forum members know of any locations where the V6 RAV is sold with a 4 speed transmission.

Your original question was how to get DAC working. I originally thought that you just needed some instructions on how to use it.

Upon investigating why DAC was not working, we now have suspicions that some parts of your RAV has been replaced. With the information provided, and the test that still needs to be done, I don't think you can be certain what parts have been replaced, other than the gear selector.

It seems that you were happy with your RAV before you discovered the DAC problem. It also never bothered you that the dashboard gear display did not match what the selector showed. Based on that I wouldn't go through great expense just to get DAC working. You will have to decide how important DAC is to you. I can tell you that most people have never used DAC other than to try it just once.
