    Hey all, new to the forum, i just bought a 2011 taco double cab 4x4 and i haven't even hit 500 miles yet and the other day i was leaving the store and i was on a steep incline in the parking lot and when i took my foot off the brake and the truck rolled back a bit, and i gave it gas to move forward, made this clunk and started a clicking sound in the driver side which sounds like it is coming from under the dash. It only does it when the truck rolls back a bit and then i start to move forward. On level ground taking off, everything is normal.

    Anyone else ever had this happen? Its driving me crazy and i haven't had a chance to get to the dealer yet. It almost sounds like a relay clicking under the dash.

    may be the traction control.....
    these new vehicles and all their "safety enhancements" drive me crazy too. but the payout is well worth it.

    Your truck has HAC. HAC holds the truck in place when you are on a steep hill so you don't roll back. This is in the manual. You should also hear a beeping when it does it.

    Nice I will find one, actually a guy that I work with has one! So just to confirm....this is something that i shouldn't worry about? If it is hill assist, then should it actually roll back?

    I used to be a Ranger owner. There was just as much speculation and photochops about the new Ranger as the 3rd gen Taco. I'll believe it when I see it for sale at the dealer. It would be cool to see what they can come up with though.

    I don't think what you're hearing is the HAC. In our Highlander, I have to press the brake pedal quickly and hard to the floor, then it beeps and literally locks the vehicle in place (it's a weird feeling when you let your foot off the brake and it doesn't roll one millimeter).

    And since yours is rolling, that doesn't sound like HAC.

    I am going to try and turn it off tomorrow and see what happens. Hopefully it will do something so I can try and eliminate the possibilities of what it could be. if not guess will just have to take it to the dealership. Hopefully they don't try and tell me it is normal. I worked in the car business for 12 years and I know what it is doing can't be normal.

    You can't turn off HAC. It is always active.

    Lol yea I figured that out this morning. Also got a ticking noise in engine compartment that gets slightly louder as I accelerate I did notice the harder I accelerate, it gets a little louder, but when at idle, and I rev the engine, it doesn't make the same sound. Sorry for all the questions this is my first truck first Toyota and first 4x4. Always driven Hondas.
