3 flash turn signal?

Does the 4Runner have a way to do the 3 flash turn signal for lane changes? with a click flick of the turn signal stalk, mine only flashes once.

I had a rental camry yesterday that flashed three times with a click flick

From my understanding there is an upgraded flasher for the FJ that will do this but it doesn't work with the 4Rs with the DRLs that use the turn signals. Not sure if it would work on the '14+ or not.

When I had a 2012 WRX, I used the following product for this function:

tappage3

It's the same flasher unit used in certain model year Prius.

There is no listing for 5th Gen 4Runners.

Odd thing to expend time and money on, but to each their own right?

My SuperDuty did this. I suppose it's convenient on the highway but the input to activate the turn signal was way to similar.

Many times I'd look down and find myself driving down the highway like an 80 yr. old with my blinker on for who knows how many miles because I pressed the turn signal stick to hard

Some folks love it though and to each his own! I like the 4runners traditional method though and especially Toyotas method of a control stalk on both sides of the wheel. Seems like some OEM's enjoy seeing just how many functions they can cram onto the left side control stalk.

I did it, because the 2012 Audi S4 that the wife drives has this function built in.

I thought it was pretty nifty, so I wanted in the WRX.

After it was installed, I ended up removing it shortly after. It never seemed to be integrated fully/properly.

I would not look to do it again, unless the car came factory with it.

Been driving a rented Ford Escape with this feature for the last week while on holidays. It is neat, but I personally couldn't justify spending anything, money or time, on adding it to my 4R

And here my old fart self thought the old momentary position on the turn signals was a nifty upgrade from either on or off.

Please feel free to correct me if I am wrong here, but I thought this was a setting like the window down feature from the remote that can be enabled by Toyota? I thought that I read that here somewhere? Oh well, take it for what it's worth and don't quote me on it. Can anyone verify that?

I would assume an upgraded and compatible turn signal relay is required to accomplish this. It's just matter of getting used to it I guess. Interested in well described DIY!

My wife's RAV4 has it and I don't like it. It's like a nanny scolding you on how many blinks you must use.
