    Note 8. I also noticed this morning while driving to work that the controls to move between songs doesn't work. It did work before when it automatically connected. It's kind of annoying, because I have to use my phone to switch between songs.

    i think it's actually an android problem. i frequently have that issue and have to restart bluetooth on the phone to get it working. a friend of mine has the same phone and same issue in a mazda.

    It's strange, because I never had this issue with my old vehicle, a 2012 Camry. It worked fine all the time. And this issue persists after rebooting the phone.

    anyone know how to remove a contact from the top 4 list thing?

    I added one by accident and cant remove it now lol.
    I can hold it and change it to another contact yes but want to completely remove it so that I don't have a contact to call there as I tend to hit it by accident when going for the volume knob

    None, finally back in a Taco
    I got to page 35, and then I read backwards 10 pages. This is all good stuff and I will revisit.

    Does anyone know of a thread that compiles common minor upgrades with vendor references other than this one? There are a few annoying things when compared to my 15 OR and I am hoping not to read a metric a$$ ton of build threads.

    Lastly, I run a blackvue 1650 front and am unsure about placement WRT the 18’s ENORMOUS space useage behind the mirror. Any advice???

    I would also like to know this. another similar question I have for people is if theres a way to delete a radio preset? I had xm for the three months and now that I don't have xm I would like to rearrange my presets but only 2 decent radio stations come in and I want the rest blank.

    Change how many presets like 12 to 6 then go back to 12 and they'll be gone

    I bought a Mophie (spelling?) case that allows the phone to charger to charge my iPhone. It works great, it’s a slow charge, but it will keep the phone charged on a long drive.

    51. If you rotate your own tires, you need to reset the TPMS sensors. The button is a small area located near the hood release on the driver's side.

    I rotated my tires last saturday, and on sunday I used the TPMS to adjust the pressure in them and all locations were accurate. I didn't reset my TPMS. I work at a tire shop and having to reprogram TPMS sensors after a rotation is only a problem on the early generation of TPMS, usually "band" style sensors instead of the valve stem style we see these days. Modern sensor usually adjust to location and pressures after few minutes/miles. I'm not sure if this has been addressed already in the 132 pages of this thread but i thought I would mention it.

    Well this is embarrassing... I bought my truck new in April and had no idea the tailgate doesn’t have a power lock. All this time I assumed the rear was locked when I locked up with the remote.

    I guess it’s never been locked. o_O

    So, if you want that tailgate to power lock, take a look at Pop & Lock PL8535 Power Tailgate Lock for Toyota Tundra. ($98 on Amazon.) Its for Tundra because the instructions show how to wire for Tundra. Youtube supplies the Tacoma mod instructions (different color wire connections.)

    Anyone know if it’s possible to lock the truck with the key fob while it’s running?

    Hi guys, just picked up my new Tacoma yesterday. Drive from San Diego to Tustin because it was a great deal.

    Anyway, I don’t think my front sensor is working. It’s a trd off road 2wd with the technology pack so I’m assuming it does come equipped with it, but I tried testing it and no beeping. I’ve searched through the dash settings and can’t seem to find anything. So before I take it in to the local dealer just wanted to ask here if there’s something I’m missing.

    Thanks!
