    Has anyone done a passenger seat airbag sensor calibration through TS?

    long story short. I want to be able to take the passenger seat out and drive with it out semi regularly (maybe 5 to 10 times a year). Sounds like I’d need to recal the seat occupancy sensor when I do this though. Definitely willing to do the work, just curious if anyone has done it?

    If I can change settings, but TS does not show my vehicle's info (year, engine, mileage), does that mean I still have full access to update TSBs? Or am I short on something?

    If you can connect to your truck in TS, you can do the TSB. Just download the appropriate .CUW file and double click it. Follow the instructions that appear on screen.

    At this point, the version of V14 that I am sharing will get prompts if connected to wifi that the version is out of date and forces you to a harmless update website. If offline, it will give you a 30 use countdown, and if you try to connect while online, it will reset the count. This is something that I am guaranteed to do by accident in one of 30 attempts. LoL!

    V14 will connect to all Tacos including 2020s, but not the 2020 T4Rs. So my guess is that we will need V15 for the 2021 Tacos?

    V15.20 has full support for 2021's. If I recall V15.00 had no support, but I don't recall what V15.10 had unfortunately, none, partial, or full.

    After removing the BSM I would get a hidden/stored DTC that it could not talk with the master and slave and a communication gateway error,

    To have the main body ECU "forget" that it had BSM, after doing a health check I went to;

    Main Body
    Initialization
    (ignition on and engine not running) and had it "re-learn" what was connected to the main ECU.

    So far no more stored code... :)

    Do you need to manually type in the key? I copy/pasted but it's a no go

    Cut and paste has worked for me. There is nothing that I hate more about computers than typing activation codes.

    Thanks
    idk what I'm missing or what I'm doing wrong, can't get ts to activate. I tried 12.20 and 14.20 and neither activation code works for me.
    I get to the screen to enter the code, click ok and it keeps opening the same 'enter code' window again

    You need to paste in the key that is in the TS window.

    There are step by step for V14 at the end of the ECU Update 1st Post.
