Things you did not know about your 4runner

Someone came up with a thread like this at
Another forum.
Here's one:
When going from neutral/park to D or R
there's about 1 second delay in throttle
response.

that's to prevent the thunk of the transmission before it engages due to above idle revs.

Things you did not know about your 4runner

One I figured out randomly a while ago:

Holding down "mode" on the steering wheel controls turns the radio on and off.

Here's one I just found out when wiring halos...

DRLs do not work when you start the car and have the parking brake engaged. However if you already have the car running and the parking brake is not engaged, then you engage it, DRLs will stay on... weird.

Yep, try it. If you turn on "party mode" there will be no sound coming out of the back seats. Open the doors to confirm and then you'll notice. At first I thought something was wrong with my speakers!

That's because it's designed to "amplify" the lift gate speakers and increases the power to the sub. Well, not increase the power but increase the gain.

Hell on my sr5 I heard no difference (I later associated that the way I did my kappa mod) but my trail (with better kappa job) was much better.

I'll have to try that tomorrow. That just confirms, after lift, I've got to do something about that shitty sound system.

Not entirely true. Depends what stereo you have. JBL premium system works differently. Party mode does not cut back door speakers and does boost the sub.

This one is something most people probably know. That being said if you're out of the car and need to put the back window up or down you can use the key. Turning left with the key in the tailgate lowers the window. Turning right on the key automatically locks the doors and puts up the window.

It should added that using the key is not automatic, like the button in the center counsel is. If you stop holding the key over, the window stops wherever is is at the time. That is true left or right....up or down.

P.S. A thread like this on the 4th Gen Forum from a few years ago turned out to be so informative that I still have the print out. Thanks for starting this one Model T !

If you press the recirc button on the HVAC controls it will "time out" and shut itself off. You can keep recirc mode "on" by pressing and holding the button for about 5 seconds. It will stay in recirc until you turn the truck off.
