    Oddly enough, I have never driven mine in the dark yet. When we drive after sunset, my husband is usually at the wheel. And since I hate to see how often he guns it and hits the red zone, I have taken to gazing out the passenger window while he drives. LOL

    I am going to take a small rectangle of the cling type of windshield tint film and put it over those two lights...its not permanent and I think it will help! Different people perceive color in different ways, and these may be just the right shade to annoy those with particular sensitivity.

    Could be. I must say it annoys me that a tiny handful of people have caused me to have what I consider to be absurdly small floor mats that stop well short of where I'd like them to stop, although I do like the secure retaining clip device thing compared to the old simple hook through an eyelet. They could easily have left the mats at the old size and had a secure retainer at the forward end to avoid the "issue". No additional paperwork here (I mostly had to sign forms that confirmed they'd offered me extra products like Toyota finance and insurance and road service and that I had knowingly refused them and why).

    Yep. The accepted practice is red for danger items and yellow/orange for warning items. All standard informational items should be other colours. This said like many others, I prefer a clean dash. Early in my driving days I was driving parental Volvos that lit up like Christmas trees, partly with completely useless warnings, partly with warnings from systems that no longer worked properly and couldn't be fixed... was very irritating.

    A mod can delete this post if they want - I don't know WHAT happened when I posted a couple days ago (I did NOT mean to post a video - apologies to the forum).

    My original point was that there is a long history of litigation in the US which probably accounts for Toyota's exuberance in having us sign lots of extra forms for the floor mats ;)

    To summarize:
    1. Remove Instrument Cluster
    2. Disassemble Cluster
    3. Tape, paint, or otherwise black-out the warning light bezel as you see fit
    4. Reassemble and test.

    I did a little write up in my Project Thread

    FWIW, after reading this thread I noticed the airbag light on my Subaru Forester is on all the time too. I never even really noticed it. Not sure if it is as bright though.

    I think Toyota should have pick a different color light for the airbag light. Like soft green! I don't like the light and there is no way to dim it down. Bright Red does not seem a smart choice. I wish there was a way to easily dissable the or dim the light. Any suggestions out there?

    Toyota needs to address this light. I'm going to complaint to the service department when I get my first service. They should change the led to green. Bugs the hell out of me when driving at night.

    Easy: don't look at it. Just pretend it's not there.

    I hated it at first but now it doesn't exit anymore.

    I was looking at instrument clusters on ebay for the C and it is not easy once you pull it out to disassemble the cluster to dissable the light. I will have to follow your advice, or cover it with a sticker. LOL, so far that is the only complaint I have about the car.

    I paid an Audio and Custom installation shop to turn off the dumb lights . It was driving me crazy, I had lasix and one eye is very sensitive to anything close to me, so when I was driving it was very distracting !
