Engine Code P1780 Solution!
So had this weird engine code pop up on my truck. P1780.
Did some searching and came up with the problem of "trans neutral Switch".
Replaced the part(100 bucks shipped of rock auto), light went away for about 30 minutes.
Comes back on, so I think it might be a faulty connection. Some Electric parts cleaner and Di Electric grease doesn't solve the issue.
Today out of random luck I was messing with my tail light wiring, because it was pretty torn up.
Connect the wire that illuminates the brake "light" when you hit the brakes back together and boom engine code gone.
The tail light wiring and Trans Neutral Switch is somehow linked?
But anyways just made this post incase someone scoping google is having similar issues.
Thanks for this post ! I checked my tacoma for codes this morning ( CEL bulb is dead ) and P1780 appeared... I had to clean my break light connector maybe 2 weeks ago after removing it and replacing it the connection was bad and all kind of weird shit would happen like my fog lights would come on when braking. Anyway. I got this fixed and this is probally what triggered my p1780 ! now its cleared , ill wait a couple of days and check it again and will update this post !
all this to say : thank you very much !
