    Yes, connect your vehicle, hit the flash icon, prepare ecu, it will ask if you wish to use your credits

    Yes. If you are an automatic transmission, that will probably mean 04B04

    It's been awhile since I've used techstream, maybe someone else can chime in on how to check your ecu id on it

    If you're on a 2016/2017 AT, just double-click this file, and it will open Techstream's ECU updating tool, you don't even need Techstream open first. It'll tell you to turn your ignition to ON but the engine OFF, and hit Next. At that point, it'll take 10 seconds and pop up a window saying what your Current version is and what the New version will be if you update. If both are 04B04, do nothing. If you're currently on 04B03 or earlier, then continue through the rest of the steps. This updates you to 04B04.

    Edit, this info and much more can be found on this link: https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/ecu-tsb-update.562550/#post-18431380

    If you've already flashed tunes to your truck, you are on the latest TSB already. That's something that should have been done before hand, anyway. Unless I misread your previous post. (In that case just disregard my comment) But, I thought you said you tried a tune.

    Did you flash a tune already?

    Edit: If you flashed a tune already you are stuck with that ECU ID, you can flash a TSB but that will give you a different ECU ID making any tunes you bought NO GOOD.
