    Correct I have the orange obdII. Do you know which driver by chance that is? Is it the open port 2.0?

    The driver for the orange dongle is included in the Overtune software package. Run the software and from the top menu choose load drivers.

    @tonered I have TechStream up and running. Used the one in your signature. Looks like the key generations worked and I can connect to vehicle and do test and change data. I can not get to the server to get the TSB I need to bring my truck to 04B04. Can you help me with that process?

    Stay away from the online button.

    The CUW file that you need is attached to the 1st Post for MTs and Post 184 for ATs:
    https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/software-update-for-the-manual.562550/

    Follow that flash instructions in the 1st Post as best as you can.

    :cheers:

    Not yet. We're hoping for an 04B14 delivery. Possibly by one of your country folks.

    Ohhhh!

    I didn't think of that. Here, auto maint is considered 'essential.'

    Is it different for you guys?

    At a dealer level I dunno from province to province...he's in AB, me ON. But I had some recall work done, frame and ckp, and got to drive a 19 Sport Tundy for a week. But it was secret ops itinerary getting in and out. So they're working on skeleton staff. Don't remember how up the chain our friend is, but shits loosening up.

    Thanks!

    It is certainly interesting.

    Things are freeing up here also, but I am not sure if we should be.
