    And it stays on until I shut the truck off. Once I start it up again it is off but will come back on after another 3-5 miles of.driving after startup. I habe aftermarket garnish. It's getting annoying now to see that light on all the time. Changed out grill and installed garnish about 3 weeks ago.

    I am getting the same about 3 miles after moving! I get the clean sensor! and tss light! is there a way to calibrate the system! without going to the dealer? I was thinking disconnecting the battery might do a hard reset on the system, any suggestions on that?

    I tried the disconnecting battery method but no luck. I ordered the OEM garnish
    Will post update once I have it installed.

    Gents, I believe you're having the same issue I had and was fixed with a sensor replacement under warranty.

    Did you have your Grille replaced by the trd Pro grille? Im concerned they might not want to replace it since its not the Original grille, what fault were you getting?

    The "Clean sensor " warning constantly. Every time I'd start the truck, used cruise control or not, she's then drive for a few minutes... fault code! I couldn't even use regular, non- radar cruise with that warning light activated. Stock grill. Sorry.

    I dont like that tss crap. I would rather not have it. If I keep havimg the issue after putting the OEM garnish, I will habe to put my stock grille back on and take it to dealer to see if sensor is the problem.

    So I just installed an OEM garnish I ordered through ebay from toyota of glendale California. I compared the knockoff one to the OEM and they were preety similar except on the back, some of the numbers werent the same and noticed alittle different plastic texture on the rear part of the garnish on the OEM one. I installed it and drove a few miles in the rain and the tss light did not come on. Lesson learned. Do not get knockoff garnish. Paid $23 for knockoff. $56 for OEM. setup: aftermarket TRD PRO grille, OEM garnish. Guy from Glendale toyota was very helpful and shipped garnish quickly. Happy I got this problem resolve. Thought I share this with you all!

    I installed a new grill about a week ago. It worked fine until about 10 miles in. The collision light went on, indicating there was no pre-collision warning available. It also won't let me use cruise control. It's been like this for about 100 miles now and a week of driving. I'm hoping it will figure it out, but I'm 100 miles in now...

    There's someone in here who has a thread where he checks the aftermarket TRD Pro grills and sends out the best ones.

    I got my trd pro grille on eBay for $75 and it looks awesome. Definetly go with OEM garnish so you dont have any problems. Garnish was $56
