No, the cars are NOT all shipped overland. I was told that the boats that pass through the Panama Canal, land at one (or maybe 2) port(s) along the gulf coast (don't know where), then around Florida to one of the Carolina's (I believe Charleston, SC), then at one time Baltimore,MD (but not any more), then lastly the New York port (which I believe is actually Port Elizabeth, NJ). The NY/NJ port serves 3 of the 12 Toyota regions [Boston region=5 of the 6 New England states : ME, NH, VT, MA, & RI (but NOT CT) ; NY region=CT, NY, PA, & NJ (I think) ; mid-Atlantic region=MD, DE, & VA for sure (maybe a couple of other states too). It's too bad that the Southeast region ceceeded from the rest of Toyota & won't/can't offer the Toyota Financial extended warranty, but you guys down south can get parts, treatments, & accessories for your cars that the northern dealers can't seem to get.
I popped my relay cover & I've got PS HTR, FR FOG, PTC HTR's #1 & #2, & CHS W/P (what is this one, please?). Missing naturally is : DRL No.4/RR FOG. I'm curious about 2 things : #1--what does the "No 4" mean & if you put just a relay in that position, will you automatically have the Daytime Running Lights or is it more involved than that (something else required)? #2---what is the RR FOG part of it? If you had it, what would it do/how would it operate? Would it just make the tail lights brighter, turn on the back-up lights, or again, is extra equipment/parts required? Or are OUR NEW '06 headlight & tail light assemblies (with their rows of LED's) not new to the rest of the world that may get the "RR FOG's"? I have not yet had anybody with an '06 demonstrate the LED rows in the front or rear light assemblies.
Thanks for your expert eletrical/electronic knowledge, Dan.
