    Looks like it’s a 2020 issue. I have a 2020 OR MT and my elapsed time has never worked.

    It’s fitting... it was built in 2020!

    Yep, mine still not working and everyone I have talked to at Toyota doesn’t know when it will be fixed. Toyota doesn’t care

    about an hour or two ago I called the nearest dealer, Durango Motor Company, who has seen this truck 8-10 times for this and other electrical problems and I was told that since I had 46K miles on my 2020 Tacoma that I would have to pay for the tech to check the vehicle out and for this update if needed. They said it didn't matter if I had the problem since the truck was new. I called Toyota cares and they said the same thing, so it as been elevated to a senior adviser, maybe I will get this fixed.

    So even though Toyota knew of this problem from day 1 or 2 of me owning, Aug 21, 2020, the truck and it was at the dealer multiple times for them to try and fix it, the dealer even ordered a new head unit for the truck and was turned down saying it was a software problem. It took Toyota 2 years to come up with a fix for the problem and I guess they think its my fault for driving the truck. Maybe they think it should just sit in a garage until the warranty period is over.

    I find it bad company policy that they just will not take care of the problem, since they knew about for 2 years this month and they couldn't fix it.

    Seems like if you have documentation that says you attempted to have the problem repaired before your warranty they should fix it. I would try another dealership. The first dealership I went to (Fred Anderson Toyota in Charleston) acted like I was the problem for trying to use the feature Toyota built into my vehicle so I went to another one and got the problem repaired on the first try.

    Agree, I have the case number and even "Toyota Cares" right now, thinks I should pay it.

    Got a call from Toyota Cares today. They said they need to check with the dealer if they had the T-SB and could do the work and also if they have records of this problem from before. I said that would be OK and if they didn't have any records, I have recorded the conversation with them from 2020. So lets see if I hear from them this week or next week

    This would have to be covered as long as the defect is documented before the warranty expires. Otherwise any manufacturer could entirely escape warranty by simply claiming no fix is available until everyones warranty has expired.

    Not sure if it's the same thing, but the Elapsed Time on my '17 4Runny does and does not work. I see it change sometimes, other times I do not see it change. Honestly don't care if it does or not since I don't know what it's even counting & the car has no issues and still gets me where I want to go.
