    Hello all, I have a 2016 Tundra.
    When I started it up today in the driveway, it came up with a "Brake Controller Error, If towing, come to a safe stop with manual controls. contact dealer"
    Capture.jpg
    The ABS and Traction control lights are also lit up.
    I connected my ODB2 scanner and it says there are no codes.
    Search showed me someone else with the same problem and it was an ABS sensor going out.
    Would that come up as a code?
    Any help would be appreciated .
    Thanks

    Mine lit up yesterday. It's at the dealership right now. Once I get it taken care of I'll let yall know what caused mine to go nuts. Seems to happen a lot based on all the posts I see.

    Following, I got the same message while driving on freeway. Turned off after half hour, and has not come back on. I have a 2017 with extended warranty on CPO. Taking it in this Wed. Hoping it's covered.

    ***UPDATE***

    Ok, Good news and bad news. After about 2 1/2 weeks and $3200 they have fixed the issues. The first time they changed out the Brake Actuator Assy, and the Trailer Brake Relay. I drove it about 2-3 days and al the lights came back on. I was furious. Took it back to them and they changed out the Right Rear Axle Bearing Assy and a bunch of small components that go with that. Been about 2 week now and I've have had no issues. Multiple posts on the Toyota forums had mentioned the rear bearings being the culprit. It was for me too, plus some other things. Hope this helps yall out and you don't have to go out of pocket as much as I did.

    Thanks for the update!
    I see you're from Springtown. I have family in Agnus. I spent a lot of time out there growing up. They used to own the carpet store & sub shop in Springtown years ago. My cousin is a coach @ the HS.

    I'm really liking Springtown. I moved out here about 2 yrs ago now. There's a lot of building going on out here so this place is growing.
