    i've had my tacoma for about 7 months now and it just dawned on me that by my odometer it reads ODO. i'm assuming this is "overdrive on". Is this correct or is it overdrive off? Do you guys ride around with the odo light on or off? should i turned ODO off for trailering?

    I think the ODO means odometer. If you push the button, it'll change to 'trip1', then a second time to 'trip2', IIRC. I'm pleased with the dual trip odometers. Let's me monitor a tank of gas on trip1, plus the distance to someplace on trip2

    sawdust, you are too easy to please. I think that a Kia might even have more info on their dash than our Tacomas. I get into some people's chevy's and they have tire pressures, mpg, %oil left, etc...

    Don't get me wrong, I'd like to have instantaneous mpg, oil pressure, voltage, etc too. I was limiting my response to the topic at hand, the odometer. There's a scangauge on my wish list for the extras. My Dad bought a new Sierra a couple of months before I got my Taco. He's got all that. My only point to brag to him is that I've got a Homelink mirror with the garage door opener and he doesn't. Mine was one of those "port" options we discussed a while back. Came with the truck as far as I'm concerned.

    I thought that was just something so obvious it got overlooked. On the topic of your other point about overdrive while towing, that depends on whether you have the manual or automatic transmission. On the auto, I normally drive in D, but if towing, you're supposed to use 4.

    I believe you're talking about the cover for the button to disengage the "brake must be depressed to shift out of P" (sorry, don't have a clever title for it) feature. You pop that cover off and there's apparently a button under there that you can push down that allows you to shift out of "P" without having to depress the brake pedal.

    Probably lets you shift out of park without the truck running. Most autos have something like that.

    Edit: Try it, but I think you still need to push the brake. That would be like yanking a manual out of gear without holding the brake. The truck could start rolling. Normally you can't shift out of park without the key in or engine running (forget which). I'm sure it's in the manual somewhere.

    I noticed the same button down there too. My button cover is gone and I would like to get a new one if anyone knows where. I assumed it was an emergency release button for the shifter.

    Just to let you know we are all learning. It took me two weeks to realize if I want the interior lights to come on when I unlock the door I need to hit the button twice.

    I thought it was kind of strange when I would unlock it and not get the interior lights...........

    Nope it means the alien guy on Star Trek Deep space nine. I was thinking about that the other day and my wife and I came to this conclusion. ;)

    ^ huh?

    It's not about needing the brake to start... It's about pushing the brake to shift out of park.
