    How do you disable or remove pin from steering lock. I want to tow a 2010 Tacoma (with driveshaft disconnect), but can't lock doors or remove key from ignition. Thanks for your help.

    Maybe the manual says something about towing...?

    I wouldn't 'flat tow' a Tacoma..
    At the very least, I would get a dolly for the front wheels..
    This Vehicle is not recommended for 'Flat' or 'Dingy' towing methods..

    Thanks, but I towed my previous Tacoma with no problems. I install a drive shaft disconnect which lets the truck free-wheel without turning the transmission. If I were to dolly-tow the truck I would put the rear wheels on the trailer, again so the transmission doesn't turn.
    The way the Tacoma is wired you cannot turn off the key without locking the steering wheel and the doors won't lock with the key in the ignition. So you go down the road with the key in the Acc position (to free the front wheels to turn) and the doors unlocked.
