    2016 DCSB Sport 4x4.. Picked it up 1.5 weeks ago with 4 miles on it. Looked at it before it came off the truck.. Diff bearing problem from day one and now dealing with this BS. Wished I had my 2014 back at the moment. Truck was not lifted with the problem. Went ahead and lifted and now have a bigger problem

    Power steering pump is turned by the engine. Power steering does not on when in ignition mode.

    Accessory mode only allows the windows go be rolled up.

    Doesn't the new truck use electric power steering?

    No, they left hydraulic power steering. The tow package has a power steering line cooler

    That's good to hear. I'm not a fan of electric steering.

    LOL.

    Is this the right post for asking a question about how to get rid of the constant warnings on the Entune radio? Warning about operating while driving, warnings about using data for Pandora, I heart radio, slacker etc... Makes me want to pull this radio and change it out!!

    LEDs are polar. If they are not working flip them around.

    Yes it is. My wife's CR-V has electric motor driven Hydraulic Power steering pump instead of the engine. The RAV-4 has it amongst several other cars. It's still not exactly the norm, but not unheard of either.

    I wrote it that way because electric steering isn't exactly accurate, but the pump is operated by an electric motor.

    Would someone detail the way door locks work with the fob ? Can you program which doors unlock or do they all at once ?

    That OEM tonneau cover is GARBAGE when it rains. I have tried #1 and 2. I was thinking about asking the dealer to refund my $650 and replace the bed rails, so I could get something else. But I don't think that's going to happen.

    That can be set as well. I'll put the instructions up in a bit. I recall you set the unlock with the touch of the handle on the entune system. I have to make a run to the store and will check again real quick.

    It isn't "garbage", have your dealer check out why your's isn't sealing. Mine works perfectly fine. Just because yours may not work as it should doesn't mean the entire system is garbage. Please keep this thread clean with information relevant with little known facts that may not be known about the vehicle
