    True - but there are some parallels. But I think we get what he's trying to say here. He's focusing on the bigger collective issue that is the catalyst for why TSS type of issues happen in the first place. I'm fairly certain the average Taco consumer didn't purchase their truck because it came with TSS, which seems to be his point. As to your point - you can sue, as long as you don't allow them to perform the TBS. No lawyer in their right mind would advise you to sign that document - none!

    This may have been asked already, but does anyone know exactly what the software update part details are and what it is is changing?

    I'll ask tomorrow, because I want to know and nobody seems to know either. Maybe from being disconnected? Just a re-calibration? I'll ask my dealer, see what they say.

    I removed and reused the cheap patch to free the sensor. Flexseal tape would be a better choice.

    Look forward to hearing what happens. I go to Koons Annapolis and have not yet brought my '18 Limited with Pro grille in yet.

    Thanks man, was waiting for someone who took it off and put on the new grill. I initially thought is was glued on but I gently started peeling it back and it felt like it could come off no problem, and then was wondering if it would still stick after I reapplied on the new grill.

    Ok..

    I had this “repair” done today. Foam sticky pad was applied. Do not see a sticker anywhere, and didn’t really go looking either.

    Looking at this document.. it appears that there is an old, and new MWRS (radar). Or if you will, a Change in design. Difference being (that I can figure out) vent holes vs. non vent holes. Non vent holes get the sticky pad. Vent holes stays as is. The grill plays a part as well. As in, what size sticky pad gets placed.

    This doc. Also has a flow chart on what is done. This does not say anything about what’s in the “update”.. I can only assume (I’m guessing here) distance, but possibility height and width of an object at unknown distances to us.

    Falling asleep, so if I make no sense.... I get it.

    I was supposed to get the heritage grill installed by dealer 2 weeks ago but then they needed to order a new sensor because recall. Today dealer says they were sent a new statement from Toyota and they cannot perform the recall work if the grill is installed. Their suggested solution if I want the heritage grill is to upgrade to a pro. I’m super annoyed with Toyota and the fact that I can’t get this grill installed now. I don’t know what to do now!

    Get the recall done, then upgrade to the heritage grill....

    Don’t pay for the OEM, the ones online, especially from a member on here is basically the same thing for a fraction of the price.

    Hi Jaclyn,

    Yes, get the upgrade done then choose a grille. There are endless choices from plastic to aluminum... Don’t pay for the grille install, it’s a simple swap that you can do yourself via YouTube, grille pops off in less than 5 minutes.

    Where are you located? It's easy enough to do yourself but if you don't feel comfortable I'm sure you can find a local mechanic or tw member to help you install the heritage grill

    If there is another dealership close by, I would check with them. The paper says Toyota doesn't "recommend" it. It also says that it is because they cannot evaluate it, but if it is done by the dealership they should be able to "evaluate" it. Maybe the added leverage of you checking with another dealership and having them willing to do it might be enough to encourage your current dealership to do it. Maybe not, but you got nothing to lose by checking.

    They are just making sure you can't sue Toyota if their safety equipment fails, on your modified truck. The safety equipment is tested and assured on their stock vehicles, they cannot test and assure it works with every mod available, so they are just covering their asses.

    FWIW I had the recall service done then installed the Mad Hornets Pro Grill. I got the 'PCS off clean sensor' error on the first two short trips. Next trip was 15 min interstate driving and 30 minutes surface streets. Radar functionality appeared normal with no error messages so keeping my fingers crossed.

    If this is true when I go in for my 5k service. I may be walking off the taco train. This has been a complete train wreck of a vehicle. With Toyota saying stuff and weird transmission issues. This is crazy pitiful. I bought the Toyota thinking I was getting great reliability and great customer service but it seems like they could care less
