    Changing the number of presets displayed is probably the easiest way. Not really deleting but you don't see them.

    How can I spin my tires in my sr5 ? I turn traction control off and it still acts like its not letting the truck open up and spin or like if it does spin a little bit it stops.... Anyone else having issues trying to have some fun?

    Press the gear top right. Then General. Scroll down. Clear all data. Only way to reset the presets to blank. You have to re-pair your phone though.

    Tips and Tricks on the 2016 Tacoma
    I tried a couple of cases in my '16 Taco. I have a Samsung S7 with a MOKO heavy duty case (the one that IS wireless compatible) and it works perfectly. The trick is your case should not have metal in the back of the phone (Like the belt clip or one of those plates for a magnetized holder - which I had on my older phone). It's just interference. Rubberized or silicone should be fine. If your phone is already wireless compatible just lay it inside and give it a second or two and the yellow light appears on the left side of the bottom of the box. Bluetooth works great, but I'm still trying to figure out how to upload other apps from my phone. Anyone got that figured out yet? I'm new in this forum and will post pics of my truck (and phone case) tomorrow. ps the phone case is great too 9 bucks on Amazon, has a kickstand, beats the crap out of an otterbox and fits in my pocket.

    If you put on larger tires you may have to make changes to your navigation setting. Page 251 of navigation manual. I did. My truck thought it was playing the ninth hole at my local golf course. FOUR!!

    Resetting/Shutting off the Maintenance Minder Light. The maintenance reminder light looks like a Triangle with a exclamation point on the dash. The Reset option islocating in the Dash Display; On the Dash Mid display scroll to the last category with the right side steering wheel controls, cycle down the list and look for the maintenance reminder options..You'll have to shut your truck off and turn it back on for the light to go away.

    Found a little safety feature today...

    One-touch up on the windows comes has a 'somethings in the way' sensor and stops the window from continuing up. It then rolls all the way down.

    (Or am I late to the party again?)

    I traded in a 2015 4Runner Ltd and I don't think it was on that vehicle. But I didn't make it a habit of sticking my hand in the window while it was rolling up either. Until today, that is.

    Hi AAChaoshand,
    Great post. Thanks for the info - some of the stuff I've discovered on my own. I do have one question and it maybe silly or very obvious, but is there a key hole for the key (in the key fob) that actually starts the vehicle? I'm not seeing one anywhere but I do recall the dealer saying something about it.
    Also, I have a humming sound (about the same tempo as heartbeat) that happens between 45-55mph. I can feel some vibration in the accelerator pedal. I don't think it is the driveline as the description of symptoms don't match. I thought it was different road textures but it is always around those speeds.
    Any help would be great.
    Cheers,
    Holly

    It just removes the chime... the red light is still there. (flashes for a minute or so then goes solid).

    Cheaper way to turn off the seatbelt warning - Ebay and Amazon sell little dummy seatbelt tangs for a few bucks, makes the vehicle think there's a seatbelt fastened. For a couple dollars more there's a 3" seatbelt extender, it stays in all the time, the seatbelt when you use it goes into it. Toyota also offers them for free. Only problem, when a passenger gets in you have to remove the extender and reinsert it or the passenger airbag is set to "off."

    wouldn't it be simpler to just.....wear your seatbelt?
