    Thank you Mojo. I appreciate that. I’m really hoping it doesn’t go that far though.

    I was looking at code readers myself a few days ago. This is the least expensive well reviewed one that does abs https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01MR7FZS1/ref=sspa_mw_detail_3?ie=UTF8&psc=1 . I just cleared a p2197 code and replaced the sensor. Waiting for the cel to go back into operation and see if it’s fixed for sure. Hoping I don’t have to start chasing stuff myself. GL hhg.

    Edit: I just bought this simple guy for myself jic but really hoping it’s fixed ANCEL AD310 Classic Enhanced Universal OBD II Scanner Car Engine Fault Code Reader CAN Diagnostic Scan Tool - Orange https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01LX0GI52/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_K1jWCb8YR89TZ . If anyone local ever needs to use lmk.

    I have several code reading options.

    I have a handheld code reader that I bought in 2003, a VAG-COM for fixing crappy VWs and a Tactrix cable that works with Techstream. I have a mini VCI cable that works with Techstream as well. It can do a lot of the functionality except for flashing/programming.

    Soooo......

    I just swapped out my old Doug Thorley y pipe with a new one. (Old one had a hanger snap off)

    And I changed out my cat back system with a borla cat back system.

    I sprayed my o2 sensors with brake clean and wiped them off...

    Now I have a P0037 code.

    Since the truck is 9 years old, I’m thinking I might as well replace both o2 sensors.

    I’m pretty sure the Y pipe is the down stream sensors...

    I forgot to plug in one of the o2 sensors.. easy fix..

    You have the autocraptic transmission right?

    The code can be caused by the fact that your ECM is getting speed input from the transmission output shaft speed sensor (SP2 signal) while it doesn't receive a signal from the wheel speed sensors (SP1 signal). Being that your speedometer is not working, I'm willing to be the cause of your P0500 issue is the lack of an SP1 signal to the ECM.

    The connections go from wheel sensors---->skid control ECU---->combination meter (gauge cluster)---->ECM.

    First check the speed into the gauge cluster. unplug cluster, turn the ignition switch on and have someone spin the wheels while you check voltage between connector C9 pin 6 and ground, should be intermittent pulse of DC as the wheel is turned. A simpson meter or o-scope would work best but a DVM will work in a pinch. If you are getting nothing, it's likely your skid control ECU or the wheel sensors.

    You can check that same output out of the skid control ECU to rule out any wire issues between the skid control ecu and instrument cluster at connector IA1 pin 36 (red wire with yellow stripe).

    For shits and grins you can also check the signal between the E6 and E7 ECM connectors as the wheel is turned slowly, check the SPD signal (connector E7 pin 8) ground signal E1 (connector E6 pin 1), should see voltage fluctuations. If your speedometer isn't working though it is likely you will have found the signal didn't make it to the gauge cluster first.

    I will add that I know nothing about the black box aka skid control ECU. I'm sure it's a proprietary toyota circuit. Not sure how it develops the SP1 signal or if it can transmit the SP1 signal to the gauge cluster after 1,2, 3 failures of the speed sensors? I'm assuming it is taking the pulses of all 4 then taking an average of them and if it detects a failure of 1 it votes it out of the averaging circuit so that if you lose a speed sensor you don't lose your speedometer reading, but it's really just a SWAG at best.

    Worst case, if you determine your skid control ECU is bad, I think the easiest route to go would be to replace with a junkard tacoma one. If that doesn't work, you could go an alternate route and simplify the circuit and wire it like the manual transmission tacomas do; which is to read the speed using a VSS off the rear transfer case since you have swapped to the FJ case it would be pretty easy. Get new transfer case VSS and run the signal wires up to the drivers kick panel area and splice it into where the skid control ECU feeds into the gauge cluster, then you could also get rid of the silly VSC/ABS setup which sucks on these trucks anyway LOL

    Damn Ant. Thank you for taking the time to write all of that.

    Now, maybe if I read it 15-20 more times, I’ll begin to understand it...

    I’m going to take Craig up in his offer for the ABS wires first. If that does nothing, I have this bookmarked.

    No problem, that sounds good.start with the cheapest and easiest fix and work your way forward.

    Yeah, I wouldn’t normally just start changing parts, but that seems the most likely since I had the front apart to put the RCVs in and I got one of the wires under a zip tie.

    After that, it’s diagnosis time.

    These kinds of problems reinforces my desire to keep an older truck where things are all mechanical and diagnosis can be done with visual inspections and some common sense.

    The more electronics added make the common sense not so common.

    I hear that. I have a picture of me standing inside the engine compartment of a 60 Ford somewhere. With the engine in it.

    Of course it was a BBC with fenderwell headers and no inner fenders. But still.

    That would take some digging. That was before people took pictures with cell phones.

    Before most people HAD cell phones.
