    I have a 2008 Tacoma double cab V-6. After opening the hood, and looking to the right of the engine on the firewall, there is a black round button. Does anyone know what it is and what it is for? Found nothing in the manual. Someone please enlighten me.....THX

    Probably part of an aftermarket/dealer alarm kit. What side is it actually on; the right side is the passenger side (L & R in a vehicle is always from the viewpoint of sitting in the vehicle in the forward facing position).

    Damn I'm an idiot. The button is to the left side of the engine on the firewall, in front of or behind the glovebox, depending on your point of view. Sorry for the previous bad info. It was hard for me to believe everyone was stumped on that. Now does anyone have a clue? I will take a picture if necessary...........

    I pressed it, and now my camber angle is FUCKED.

    Or maybe its cause my tires are out of round because my dealer did not do an alignment after the leaf TSB, either way my camber is visibly way off and my wheel shakes at 65.
