    Just sent you a PM Chas. This thing doesn't do half of the things listed that it should do, unless I am missing something....

    Just as an update to everyone, I am not able to do any of the special features that are advertised with this tuner. I know one or two of them may not apply as I don't have sunroof or a power back door (whatever that is) but nothing listed works...

    Display and Lighting

    Display Ex Off
    This changes the brightness when canceling the lights for the indicator light of the combination meter, A/C indicator light and clock.

    Display Ex On
    This changes the brightness when dimming the indicator light of the combination meter, A/C indicator light and clock.

    Foot Light
    This sets the time the Outer Foot Light is on.

    Interior Lighting
    This will turn the interior light on when the ignition switch is turned from "ACC" to "LOCK". This will also turn on the interior light, ignition light and step light on when the door is unlocked by the door key cylinder.

    Light Sensitivity
    This adjusts the sensitivity of the lights

    Light Auto OFF
    This will light the headlight for a time after the doors are closed with the ignition switch turned ON and the light control switch is at HEAD or AUTO and the headlight is ON.

    Light Time On
    This function changes the time between when the doors are closed and the lights go off when the light control switch is at HEAD or AUTO, and the headlight is on.

    Door Lock Functions

    Auto Lock
    Doors on the vehicle lock automatically after the vehicle reaches a certain speed.

    Auto Lock on Shift
    This locks the door when the lever shifts out of the P range.

    Auto Unlock on Shift
    This unlocks the door when the lever is shifted into the P range with the ignition ON.

    Unlock All Doors on Shift
    This unlocks every door but the driver door when the driver door is opened after the ignition is switched off after a certain time.

    Key Cylinder Functions

    Power Windows
    This makes the driver window (and all windows, depending on vehicle grade) and sunroof close if the driver window control is held closed. If the driver door window control is held open, the driver's door window (and all the windows, depending on vehicle grade) and the sunroof will open.

    2 Turns Open All Doors
    This unlocks only the driver door when the key UNLOCK button is pushed twice. When this setting is switched OFF, the key UNLOCK button will unlock all the doors.

    Sunroof Operation
    This will open the sliding roof if the door switch is held to UNLOCK and the ignition switch is OFF. This will also close the sliding roof if the door switch is held to LOCK and the ignition switch is OFF.

    Sunroof Action
    This selects the opening direction of the sliding roof when holding the driver side door key unlocked for a certain time when the ignition switch is OFF.

    Key Fob Functions

    Wireless Control
    This is used to turn the wireless door lock ON or OFF.

    Horn Chirp on Lock
    This turns the wireless buzzer response function ON or OFF.

    Open Door Warning
    If a door is open when vehicle is being locked by the wireless door lock, a buzzer will sound.

    Panic Function
    The "ON" setting will enable the Theft Deterrent System by pressing and holding the Panic Button. Use the Lock Button if the Panic Button is unavailable.

    Wireless Auto Lock
    This automatically locks doors after they are unlocked with the wireless key.

    Auto Lock Time
    This will change the amount of time from unlocking the door(s) with the wireless key to re-locking them automatically.

    Optical Flash on Lock
    This is used to turn ON or OFF the hazard answer back of the wireless door lock.

    Unlock Driver Door
    Use the GT to disable this feature so all of your vehicle doors will unlock with one press of the button on a remote door lock unit.

    Power Back Door

    Wireless PBD Operation
    This function changes the operation of the PBD by transmitter.

    PBD Buzzer
    This function will adjust the volume of the buzzer while the PBD operates.

    Security

    Entry Delay
    This will change the Entry Delay Time, or the period before starting the warning, by the Passive Mode.

    Passive Mode
    This will set the Theft Deterrent System in 30 seconds after the Driver door is closed and the Key is removed from the Ignition Key Cylinder.

    Warning Broken Glass
    This will turn the Glass Break Sensor ON or OFF.

    Warn by Horn
    This turns the glass break sensor ON or OFF. It is only functional when the vehicle has a glass break sensor.

    Update...

    Spoke to Chas (I am sure he will chime in here soon) and will unfortunately be returning my tuner. I mainly bought it for all of the bells and whistles that I listed above and unfortunately, it will not perform those options (at least not on my 2011 Tacoma DCSB, fully loaded). Chas said he will be getting me an RA number on Monday so I can get it headed back to them.

    I just hope I don't get screwed with a restocking fee or anything like that. I shouldn't given the fact the product doesn't do everything they state it will do...

    It may be a dumb question, but do you guys really think this will allow me to turn my very much so hated speed limiter (115mph) high enough that it is practically off? And do you think I could also change my auto's shift points to a few hundred rpm higher so i didn't have to manually shift it at the top of each gear at wide open throttle? From what i've read, it sounds like these options are available. i want to know that someone has done it with out issue before i throw down the cash. Adjusting those two things would make me never give up my tacoma.

    Damn, as I said, those are my two biggest quarrels about tacomas. Roll racing is fun until you get to 115 and the other person walks away from you because they have a higher set limit or none at all. who am i kidding, MY tires are only rated for 112mph anyway. Thank you for the quick reply.
