    I forgot to raise mine this morning when I ran into town. It will make it easier putting the sunshade in the windshield this summer. :)

    Dont wanna start a thread for this but I bought after market wheels and tires, and was going to leave my stocks in tact. Is there a way to get rid of the TPMS light when your not running the sensors in your wheels? Any tips or tricks?

    i have the same issue but in reverse,
    Got TPMS for my winters (new rims and treads back in November) at 4wheelparts and they cleared the code on the confuser (the computer) so now that i'm running the stock ones again for the summer, i have a constant light now.

    I thought the TPMS would work the same as my old ford, where the car picks up the sensor after some driving around, but apparently you need to program this?


    i'll bug Toyota about it when i take it in for the TSB and ask them for you if they know if there is a way to shut if off. my only guess is maybe that "SET" button under the dash fixes it

    If you remove your TPMS sensors, there is no way to turn off the dashboard warning light.

    If you have replaced your TPMS sensors, the new codes must be registered by the dealer.

    The "SET" button allows you to initialize the TMPS system after a tire rotation or changing the tire size.

    Yeah I'm not going to buy any new sensors when the batteries on the ones in my wheels give out. Just going to let my little light shine.

    You could build a pressurized canister to put the sensors in. Then just keep that canister in the truck.

    This is probably already covered but I just found out that the steering wheel telescopes in and out when unlocked for adjustment.

    Number 54 is "You can hang the gas cap on the gas door by putting it between the prongs. Another solution is here: https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads...r-3rd-gen-today.399305/page-391#post-11833861"
    Are you talking about 63?
    "To start the truck without having your foot on the brake (useful for when a rider goes to the truck before you do and is sitting in the passenger seat) push the PTS button once and release, then push the PTS button and hold it till the truck starts (Approximately 10-13 seconds). This process was tested on a 2017 & 2016 Tacoma TRD Off Road with an Automatic Transmission and stillrequires the smart key to be in the vehicle in order to start."
