    In anticipation to receive my new 1794 hybrid next month, I have developed a list of the customizable features I will request the dealer to adjust as part of the truck's delivery. The list below are the features I am considering that can be adjusted only by the dealer. There are other features that I will adjust and can do so from the big screen or the little screen in the dash. I relied on the tables in the back section of the owner's manual to make this list. Would welcome any checks of my list or suggestions for other features I need to consider. I know some may appear trivial, but trying to take advantage of the tech that is available. Thanks.

    1. Why bother unlock with mechanical key? I never take out my fob from my pocket, it works great.
    2. Never heard of this, what's the reasoning?
    3. Same as 2
    4. If you accidentally press tailgate button on your remote it may pop open, and if you park near the wall it'll damage your tailgate. Many had this issue happen. I would disable this feature all together.
    5...
    ..
    No comments on few points, don't know what it's for
    ..

    Change signal to 5 blinks, I had same adjusted, good idea.

    AC mode with auto - why mess with this? Auto mode is supposed to work well and figure out what you need automatically. What's the reasoning here?

    Rear seat belt - it's a liability for them, I doubt they'll turn it off for you


    To sum it up, you got a very very extensive list. Where did you find out about this? I never heard about many of these options, and I've been following this forum for the past two years.

    First, thanks for taking the time to study the list. Your feedback is very helpful and appreciated.
    Second, the list of customizable features exist in Chapter 8 (see attached) of the 2024 Tundra Hybrid owners manual (downloaded from Toyota.com). It shows those features available to adjusted by the owner and those features that can only be modified by the dealer. I assume a similar list exists in the manuals for the other model years.
    You provided great comments, and I'd like to try to answer some of them.
    1. Mechanical key - The thought here is that it could be some delay to get the 2nd fob and in the event that the wife or son have the fob, I want to have the mechanical key simulate the fob.
    2. The manual shows 1.5s or 2s for the other locks to respond. I prefer all locks open simultaneously, immediately.
    3. For door lock, the default is 2. Not real sure about what this is, but IMO why should it be limited.
    4. Great feedback on the tailgate operation. I am going to study this further.
    5. AC mode in auto. I can foresee occasions where I may not want the AC to operate even if conditions suggest it should. Probably more of a control freak thing.
    6. Rear seat belt....The biggest payload I expect in my Tundra is 3 other senior guys, golf clubs, luggage, and beer coolers. We all use seat belts. I prefer not to hear dinging or chiming when we first pull away. We are all buckled in before leaving the parking lot. Not aware of any laws that require the chime for the rear seat otherwise why is the feature customizable.
    Again, thanks for your help. Patrick

    Hi, ok here are my thoughts:

    1. Ok, so you're saying if you don't have a fob handy, you will make a copy of the key? And use that to open the doors if needed? But you still can't drive without the fob, right? So what's the point? You can use Toyota app to open doors as long as truck has mobile data.

    2. Not sure about this one. As soon as I grab handle, my doors open instantly. I setup driver side handle only open driver door, passenger side handle open all doors. Maybe mine is already changed...idk

    3. Sorry, idk, not sure if you're looking too much into these options and over thinking it. :) I thought I was picky... are you engineer by trade?

    4. AC mode - you can use regular Mode button to blow air from wherever and set temperature, and choose ac off. Don't see reason to mess with auto mode

    5. Usually dealer would adjust these settings later on as well, mine did without charge, so others. Don't really need to over think some of these very involved uncommon settings. You can try it first as is

    Good luck!

    Has your dealership already agreed to make any of these changes?
    Are they charging you a fee for this service or have they already agreed to provide it complimentary?
    I predict that you will seriously regret the short push for the tailgate release. Use the search function and read the reports of owners damaging their tailgates after inadvertently engaging the tailgate release on their fob.

    With these inputs, I made some adjustments to the features especially on the key and tailgate. I have discussed some of these changes with the salesman and they have been agreeable to include with the delivery checkout. We'll see how it goes as delivery gets closer. Thanks again for the feedback and suggestions.
