I believe they use the high beam for drl. Are the high beams still working ?

That is good, that only leaves 1 thing to check. Look for a small jumper ( could be a fuse), should be located close to the fuses for high beam headlights. Both wires coming off are marked WHITE/ black. Maybe look into owner manual to locate the fuse.

I will try to email u the pdf diagram

slicksam,
Sorry I didn't pay more attention the first time.
So now I understand. You did positive parking lights at first, blew the TAIL fuse, changed to negative parking lights, and replaced the fuse.
The only other idea I have is that on Toyotas, if you apply the parking brake, the DRLs don't come on until after you start the car and release the brake.
Any chance that the parking brake is on? Or that you accidentally shorted out the parking brake wire?
At the parking brake pedal, you should be able to see just one wire there. Test that it's only negative when the parking brake is on.

Are you telling me there is supposed to be a fuse in the empty slot near the battery, if so what happened to the fuse? and what size Amp goes there?

thanks

Yes, you can put a 15 amp fuse in there and try it out. To disable the drl, you just pull the pin (fuse out ). Maybe it was pulled out by the owner or dealer when it got serviced ?

Another thing I can think of, maybe the owner had HID lamps installed on the high beam, cuz hids don't work on half power.

Stupid question, but is this owner even complaining about his DRLs not working?
Assuming it was my car, that the rest of the lights work fine and there isn't an idiot light illuminated on the dash, I would be happy that they didn't work - AFAIC they aren't good for anything except wasting electricity and shortening bulb life.

maybe seeing that the relay rest at ground you could have damaged the relay for the lamps that in turn turns the daytimes on

check to see if the parking light wire still rests at gound
