The bumper mounted auxiliary driving lights, in combination with the high beam head lights are brighter that government regulations allow.
Toyota will notifying owners of affected FJ vehicles beginning late May 2013. If you are not notified and feel you should have been, please contact your local dealer. They may ask for your vehicle identification number (VIN), so please have it handy when you call.
Certain FJ models were equipped with auxiliary driving lights mounted to the front bumper. If these lights are used in conjunction with the high beam headlights, the total illumination exceeds federal safety standards. The resulting glare to oncoming traffic could reduce visibility, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the original 55 watt auxiliary driving light bulbs with 35 watt bulbs to correct this concern.
