the auto on was an option on any sport...not just the SAP.I believe all North American 4.3 models have auto-off headlights, regardless of configuration.
Only the Limited models and (I'm pretty sure) some Sport SAP models had headlights that would automatically turn on.
We recently purchased a 2012 Rav4 Base, 49,000 miles. There is no warning noise or notification that the lights are left on when the engine has been turned off and the key is removed from the ignition. Is this normal?
I also learned about this feature from the forum, and it works on my Base model. A lot of RAV drivers leave the light switch "on" all the time. When they turn off the ignition and exit, the lights go out after 30-seconds. When they enter again and start up, the lights come back on again.Thanks for the quick response. I never thought they might go off automatically. They do not come on automatically. I'll stick around to see if they go off.
