    I traded my 07 Prerunner for an 09 TRD offroad 4x4 and there is WAY too many buttons and alarms. Whenever I take a sharp turn, there is a buzzer that goes off.. Beeep Beeep Beeep.. what the hell does it mean? Wheel Slip or something?

    Maybe it is only on the 4x4's and that is why I haven't heard it.

    Can anyone identify ALL the conditions that will cause the truck to beep at me like I am doing something wrong?

    I think it is the traction control kicking in. You must take a mean corner and the rear end might kick out a tad resulting in the computer thinking you are in trouble.

    Not positive, but w/o running out and checking my manual I think that is it.

    That is what I thought it might be, I hit the gas while taking a sharp turn.. I don't feel any slippage though? I also get the beeep when I am in 4h on the beach, and making a u-turn..

    Does the light flash on the dash when it does it? You are probably spinning the tires a bit. You can turn off the vsc in 4hi by coming to a complete stop, and pressing the vsc button for several seconds. You can do the same in 2wd or just press it once to activate the ALSD, vsc will come on at a certain speed and go back off when you slow down. If it's kicking in every time you make a turn, you must not be cutting it any slack! :)
