Toyota 4Runner: Automatic running boards

The Automatic running boards are linked to the side door operations, extending and retracting when a side door is opened and closed. When a door is opened or closed, the board on the same side extends or retracts.


1. Opening a door: The appropriate board extends 2. Closing a door: The appropriate board retracts

Turning off the Automatic running boards system

Press “OFF” on the Automatic running boards switch to turn off the Automatic running boards system.


1. On (Automatic mode) 2. Off

The orange line at the top of the switch illuminates to indicate that the Automatic running boards system is on.

When extension of the boards is not necessary, or extension of a board is not desirable due to an obstacle, turn the Automatic running boards switch off before opening the side door.

Jam protection function

During Automatic running boards operation: If a board contacts an obstacle when extending, it will retract. If an obstacle gets caught between a board and the vehicle when retracting, the board will extend.

If an obstacle is detected 3 times in a row during Automatic running boards operation, the board will stop at the position it contacts the obstacle. When a side door on the same side as the board is opened and closed one more time, the board will extend and retract, or retract and extend. After this, the board will resume normal operation.

Automatic retraction function

The boards will be automatically retracted, for safety, under the following conditions:

• A board is not completely retracted

• Vehicle speed is approximately 5 mph (8 km/h) or higher

The boards will not automatically extend again when vehicle speed returns to less than 5 mph (8 km/h).

If the Automatic running boards indicator comes on when driving first commences

A board has not completely retracted. Check that no obstacles are caught between a board and the vehicle.

If the Automatic running boards indicator light flashes

There may be a malfunction in the Automatic running boards system. Have the vehicle inspected by your Toyota dealer immediately.

When snow or mud is attached to the board or the board is frozen

The Automatic running boards may not operate correctly. Before stepping on a board, check that it is completely extended. If the Automatic running boards are not operating correctly, turn the Automatic running boards switch off and refrain from use.

When removing snow or mud, turn the Automatic running boards switch off.

After recharging/reconnecting the battery

If the Automatic running boards have not completely extended or retracted, the boards may not move in the intended direction the first time they are operated. However, from the second time onwards, the boards will resume normal operation.

When getting in and out of the vehicle

Take care because clothes and shoes may become dirty due to contact with the lower part of the vehicle body.

CAUTION

Jam protection function

Observe the following precautions.

Failure to do so may cause serious injury.

Never use any part of your body to intentionally activate the jam protection function.

The jam protection function may not work depending on the shape of the object that is caught. Be careful not to get fingers or other body parts caught.

Cautions regarding the Automatic running boards

Observe the following precautions.

Failure to do so may cause serious injury.

• Check to make sure that all passengers and people in the vehicle’s surrounding area do not have a hand on a board or any part of their body in a position where it could be caught between a board and the vehicle when an Automatic running board is being operated.

• Confirm that the boards have completely extended or retracted before getting in or out of the vehicle. If someone gets in or out of the vehicle during Automatic running board operation, the boards may stop extending or retracting.

• Drive the vehicle after confirming that the boards have completely retracted. Driving with a board extended is dangerous because it may hit other people or objects.


• Take care when pressing the Automatic running boards switch. The board will extend or retract and may hit other people or objects.

• Always check that the Automatic running boards switch is turned off when cleaning a board.

• Do not allow children to operate the Automatic running boards.

Operating Automatic running boards in a manner so that a board contacts someone can cause serious injury, and in some instances, even death.
