    Mfr's Report Date: March 4, 2011

    NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 11V148000
    NHTSA Action Number: N/A

    Component: TIRES:pRESSURE MONITORING AND REGULATING SYSTEMS
    Potential Number of Units Affected: 22000
    Summary: TOYOTA IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2008 THROUGH 2011 FJ CRUISER, LAND CRUISER, TACOMA, SEQUOIA AND TUNDRA VEHICLES FOR FAILING TO COMPLY WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD NO. 138, "TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM (TPMS)." THE TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEMS WERE NOT RE-CALIBRATED CORRECTLY AND THEREFORE DO NOT START ILLUMINATING THE LOW TIRE PRESSURE WARNING TELLTALE AT THE REQUIRED MINIMUM ACTIVATION PRESSURE
    Consequence: FAILURE TO WARN OF TIRE DEFLATIONS IS A NON-COMPLIANCE WITH FMVSS 138 AND COULD LEAD TO TIRE FAILURE INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.
    Remedy: DEALERS WILL RE-INITIALIZE THE TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM FREE OF CHARGE. THE MANUFACTURER HAS NOT YET PROVIDED AN OWNER NOTIFICATION SCHEDULE. OWNERS MAY CONTACT TOYOTA AT 1-800-331-4331.
    Notes: OWNERS MAY ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV .

    We drove for years without TPMS and now its a recall? Can't people just check the air pressure in their vehicles now and then?

    Isn't recalibration just airing the tires to the proper pressure and then pressing the TPMS button?

    Oh no man. We cant check tire pressure. Too much work. With the automatic doors and such these days why would you check tire pressure? I think I need to get that on my first gen now...

    But, but, but... it's cold out there.... it's wet out there.... I might break a nail.... Why should I check it? It looks round, so there must be enough air in the tire.... :D

    4.56 gears, rear trutrac,DT header, 235/85r16 Duratracs, 2nd filter pulled, inter.wipers, Cruise control, Factory alum. whls/winter tires(2nd set), Afe pro Dry-S , Dumbo eared flaps cut down.
    30 minutes with the programming tool sounds a bit long , but not too long. When I had my new aluminum wheels put on, with new sensors, it took them about as long to get each sensor scanned and inputted into the ecu for it.

    Since us old pioneers put our life a great risk to learn driving without TPMS...for decades , i wont worry about it. Oops , my bad, we had a TPMS back then too .....Mk 1 pressure guage, but they lacked a fancy light and symbol, only a number.

    As a kid I would've thought things like aribags,TPMS,ABS,and other traction controls, were going to make things better. I think they do ...sorta. More like people got lazier and more brazen with these new found safeties, like they can drive at the edge w/o consequnce and just sue if anything goes wrong.

    Part fact part opinion.... TPMS was made because some idiots in the 1990s were in Explorers and didnt check their tire psi, tires were marginally safe, low psi made em unsafe due to a blowout. Panic ensued as to no control possible , even in light of tests showing they wouldnt careen out of control.

    I beleive in safety , I wont bypass my TPMS ,at some level it will help someone. I intend to keep using my psi guage to keep making TPMS look like the idiot-born/government intervention for idiots thing that it is.

    no it's a little more complicated, every sensor has its own serial number, every vehicle has to be programed with those serial numbers. theres and sst that looks kinda like and old school game boy that syncs with the sensor and tells us the serial code, next we get the techstream and enter all the serial numbers in to the TPMS ECU, and BAM all done. pays 1hr at my shop :cool:
