Does anybody know how to disable the AFS?? I installed some aftermarket GT style headlights and it's triggering the AFS light (blinking). I know theres a button to turn it off but it doesn't work I'm assuming since I removed the original headlight the system thinks theres a malfunction with the AFS.

The system is doing exactly what it's supposed to - I am unaware of a way to disable this. Check your owner's manual or fiddle with the in-car settings to see if you can find anything, but I doubt they'd allow you to turn a warning off.

There must be a regulated change in the LED driver of the aftermarket vs OEM that is tripping the computer. Not sure you can find a way to disable it. Only method I can conceive is flashing the computer so that the parameters match the driver of the aftermarket, but I'm not even sure that's possible.

You swapped OEM GT headlights with some aftermarket ones? But why!
I don't like the DRL on the 14-15 GT oem headlights I prefer the 16-17 GT DRL
OEM


Aftermarket


I thought there would be an easier way to turn off or disable the AFS like in the toyo/lexus u just pull a fuse and it's done in a second.

Have you tried unplugging the AFS unit by the cabin fuse block? The FSM says the AFS module sends a signal to the instrument cluster to trigger the AFS light, so it might not trigger if it's unplugged.

Did anyone find a fix? I'm having the same issue. I tried u plugging the AFS unit, but the car wouldn't start after. I feel one of the wires on the AFS harness controls the AFS light. I wonder if you cut it if it will work.
