    I wonder if Toyota is just po'd that they didn't capitalize on the pro grill dad. I bet if a sport owner put in a SR grille they wouldn't have blinked an eye.

    Yea I definitely do. Looked when I got home from work and it appears they already put that black neoprene or whatever patch on it.

    Dammit anyways, now I'm going to have to figure out how to get that off without ripping the patch because it looks like they glued it on to the inside part of the grill.

    I think with the Carista app & OBDII dongle you can default the PCS on & off per key cycles. I'm sure I saw that while looking at the app settings & will check later on that...

    He has a 2018 truck with 17” wheels. You are very confused.

    OP, WHEN IT FAILS AN CAUSES TROUBLE FOR YOU, sue them. Get you a new truck every September for life, and mod them with the money they pay you. I just had mine done a few weeks back, my dealer didn’t say a word about my mods.

    Why are people surprised by this? When I bought my truck I actually signed papers saying I gave permission for the dealer to remove the window sticker, and that it was given to me after removal. Another signature was required saying that Toyota provided a mount for a front license plate. These things are because Toyota has had legal issues over insignificant things. If you want to know who has caused this, it's the people driving by you in other Tacomas.

    I’d just shut it off and go home. Last year and for every year before in your life did you need a sensor to tell you not to run into things.? This is technology for people who can’t drive or pedestrians who can’t walk. In a few years they will figure out a better system that’s not so reliant on a don’t touch methodology, until then don’t drive on the sidewalk.

    I really hope this is the case because I really like the TSS sensor and I haven't had any issues with an OEM knockoff. Frankly. the photo's I've seen of the fix are really cheezy with that foam piece and some sort of silicon being applied around the sensor. If that's all it is, I'll consider declining the warranty and fashion something myself the keep the crap off of it. And I REALLY don't want some cheesy still thrown on my dash - that will piss me off to no end. Yeah I get there's "legal" issues with declining the warranty or fashioning your own thing, but lawyers will look for the smallest dumbest thing to legally steal your money and then justify taking the lions share of it. I hate lawyers with a passion and there's only one that I'll ever trust.

    Isn't this tech paving the way for self driving cars? Aka the new multiple billion if not trillion dollar bubble right now. I mean fuck next year Tesla is going to have a million robo-taxis running around making their owners $30k a year. I'm just wondering when is Travis Bickle going to show up to clean the human nasties out of the back seat.

    It would be helpful then to update his profile with vehicle information. He never specified the year and after reading post on here for the past several months there is a large percentage of people that have no clue what they are driving.

    Update your profile, it will help, you can also look on toyota.com/owners and see past service through the dealers.

    True. But what about all the other vehicles on the road that do not have the safety features that TSS offers?

    Its not a recall. Its a Special Service Campaign. Not the same.

    The waiver is lawyer work protecting themselves from our litigation frienzed culture when a 'safety feature' may not work as designed because of something we did.

    If I was Toyota I'd do the same.

    You are free to mod all you wish.

    They are free to advise they'll not be responsible for safety features affected by your modifications.

    Pretty simple really.

    Don't like it? You have choices.

    I’m with this guy. Also not sure why you would never take your truck to the dealer for service again over this. It seems like a reasonable move by them to protect themselves.

    I paid the dealer to do TSS-P front radar calibration with the truck sitting on tires that lift the sensor about 25 mm. Stock grille. I think it was about two hours labour.

    I will not take the truck in for the recall until December. If their position is that they won't do the recall without my signing a waiver, I'll demand a refund on the calibration work because it's worthless.

    Yes. It just won’t automatically turn back on if the ignition is shut down with the TSS system turned off.
