    In the drop down menu for selecting which J2534 device tool you need to select open port 2.0 which is your tactrix adapter and then should be good to go.

    Thanks for the quick reply but I don't have a tactrix cable and it's not an option in my drop down menu. I don't have the OV Tune kit yet but am getting ready for it by applying the TSB first. Bought a cable off Amazon that works fine for everything but for some reason I'm not able to apply the TSB. GTSAPI_TGD.EXE got quarantined by McAfee during the TS install and I'm going to try to move it out of quarantine and back into the file system and see if that helps.

    I wouldn't use that cable to flash the tsb as you could brick your ecu, if you've already bought the kit and are waiting for it to come in the mail I highly recommend to just wait till then that way if something goes wrong you can unbrick the ecu yourself.

    WTF can I not feed the trolls? Because someone is wrong on the internet and it's serious business.

    Friction with the inside of the wheel? You mean the drum, right? That's different.

    This is a problem how? To do any real service on disc brakes, you have to take the wheel off too.

    Both systems are hydraulic from the master cylinder to the wheel. Technically both are mechanical braking systems actuated via hydraulics, because the stopping action is created by pushing 2 surfaces together to create friction. Contrast that with regenerative breaking on a hybrid or EV, where kinetic energy is converted to electical energy by switching the electric motor into a generator.

    ABS can be used with either disc or drum brakes. ABS, VSC, ATRAC, MTS all use the same systems, so no clue why you mention ABS in this discussion.

    @TacoBella I'm interested to hear more about switching from Tacoma to Ranger. I'm considering doing the same. Point me toward some info or PM me. Or just post here in this thread since its basically a giant cluster of everything the way it is.

    Also note that you may still be on 1.05 but they may have disconnected the battery to service the truck so your ECU would be relearning and maybe be driving all kinds of weird right now giving you the impression of being on a stock tune.

    I have the "x-horse" cable. It's pretty much garbage. Definitely get the Tactrix cable. If you don't want to buy the tune yet you can buy the cable direct, and message Matt @OVTune for the dicounted price since you already have the cable. You're doing the right steps, but your hardware is failing you.

    Heed this warning.... The Tacrix cable may seem expensive, but it is known good hardware and works. The Tactrix adapter isn't listed at the website suggested in the warning, but it is recommended by @OVTune, and of known good quality.

    Thanks for the advice. I plan on keeping this truck for a long time and hope to pass it on to my son who’s 5 now so I’m going to get the tune with the good cable. I’ll hold off on any flash attempts until I get the OV kit. Just waiting until my next paycheck.

    Not to stir the pot in any way but you'll hate buying a ranger when you see the next gen tacoma.

    It's well worth the wait. You were .5-1 min away from completing the TSB. Once you have the tune/kit it's not really a significant delay.

    I’ll pay you to replace my rear drums. :D

    I boiled my fluid and my drums are out of round. The rear brake shoes turned blue. Since then have switched to DOT-4, higher boiling point and “feels” like it stops better

    Btw 91 base tune rocks!!!

    So you're telling me that I shouldn't plan to keep my 3rd gen forever? That's it, no mods until 2nd year of 4th gen. and I can trade up.

    You have drum brakes so you must not have ABS.

    Have you ever locked up your breaks and felt the ABS kick in? If not, Toyota and the NHTSA *must* be lying to you.
