    My only problem so far is the windshield wiper fluid line is getting pinched in the hood and stopping the fluid from coming out. Taking it in to service tomorrow. I have followed the line and made sure it's in the clips and not stuck and get it going then close the hood and a few trips later, back to no fluid.


    UPDATE: it's getting pinched in the hood seal. They put a piece of electrical conduit around that spot to keep the line from pinching and reported it to Toyota. Said they haven't seen that yet but was sure they would.

    Anyone know how to keep the navigation/radio screen bright when you turn on your head lights? I hate how the screen dims when my lights are turned on.

    Hmm, as I recall there is a setting to keep in on "day" mode. I'll have to check. I think it's in the display settings or screen...I can't remember what it's called since I rarely modify anything now that I got my windows where I want them on the display.

    try this: on page 40 of the Navigation/Multimedia owners manual, it says to go to APPS, SETUP, DISPLAY, GENERAL, then you can adjust your brightness. The day mode and night mode can both be adjusted (your unit should remember your settings for each mode). Hope this helps.

    Duckbill drain valves are used on all kinds of equipment. They can be 1/8" or 18" or anywhere in between. Some common uses are as airbox drain valves on dirt bikes, quads, chainsaws, etc.

    I haven't even looked under the bed mat to see what size the Tacoma's drain holes are, mostly because it isn't an issue for me since I do not have a cover. Find what size you need and go from there, If you can't find what you want at a bike shop or small motor repair shop, an industrial supply/sheet metal fab shop should be a good source. Any place that fabricates large air movement duct work should be very familiar with duckbill valves as condensate removal devices.

    I don't know if it has been mentioned but if you have an Iphone, you can activate Siri by holding down the phone button on the steering wheel.

    Does anyone get a hissing/squeaking noise almost every time you step on the break?

    Yes. It's normal. Someone else should chime in on why it sounds like this though. My brothers 2012 4runner made the same noise new.
