Where is the voice coming from?

    First post is general, because I am still getting information on model, features, etc. But I am certain that the Tacoma in question is totally stock.

    My mom's truck: plugged a battery charger into the cigarette lighter socket. Now, when you push the remote control for the house gate, the stereo says "74PSI" in a male voice.

    Nothing odd about the gate code frequency, and this nver happened before in years of use until the battery charger was plugged into the socket.

    We have zero clue what is happening -- didn't even know there were voice prompts in the Tacoma, and certainly don't know what "74PSI" means.

    Either she is crazy and I am suffering from mass hysteria, or we have discovered some "easter egg" or diagnostic code.

    Has anybody else experienced a similar voice phenomenon?

    Thanks!

    Shannon

    Glad to know voice prompting is not "typical."

    Going to make a video of it on my phone and post a link if it turns out right.

    I was thinking perhaps the Tacoma had a voice "low pressure warning" or something that was getting triggered due to improper shielding in a wire harness or something. But if there is no voice warning system, then we might be nuts.

    Like I told my mom -- at least it isn't saying "you...must...KILL" or "Get...out!!!!" If that happens you will find one very cheap truck on Autotrader about five minutes later :)

    If the voice starts warning about alien attacks or the end of the world, please pass that info along if you don't mind...
