    If there is in fact an issue with the Air Injection Pump (AIP) there will be engine codes specific to that system. Have them checked again to be sure. If your issue with the other lights started AFTER you replaced the brake pads, I would have to suspect that it may be a wire problem where one of the ABS sensor wires got damaged. That would be more likely to prevent 4lo.

    When I broke my abs wheel sensor I had 4hi/low/trac on. I then fixed that by ordering @sdhq_offroad abs wheel sensor guards.

    Sounds like it wasn't much fun. I messed up my drivers side speed sensor and got the flashing light show too. Replaced sensor and problem went away.

    Could that be C10201? That's the code for a bad wheel sensor.

    Here's what my search yielded:

    "c1201 is not really a problem at all, If you notice whenever the check engine light comes on the VSC and TRAC OFF lights come on as well, since the VSC system heavily depends on the engine control systems it will stop working if the engine computer stores a code, So code c1201 says that there's an engine control malfunction."

    In this case, I guess that I would suggest that you start with resolving the Poo (P0051) code by cleaning the poo from the oxygen sensor, or just replace it. If I were to speculate, I would guess that the computers (engine and ABS/Traction Control) are programmed to not allow 4lo operation if it can't read the engines emissions to ensure that they're in spec, particularly if you're doing a 4lo low speed cruise.

    Maybe Toyota will come out with the TRD NFE Tundra. (NO FUCKING ELECTRONICS)

    Im starting to think that TRD is short for Turd after all of my electrical wild goose chases that Ive been on over the last few weeks.

    Getting warmer on the issue.

    SO get this:

    Completely removed the HID head lights conversion, installed stock bulbs.

    Truck runs perfectly fine with the head lights off. NO DASH lights, No engine cutting out.



    Turn the head lights on and ABS and Trac lights come on. Drive for about 5 mins and the truck starts cutting out and trying to die.



    Turn the head lights off and the ABS AND TRAC lights stay on and the truck continues to try and die.


    Turn the truck off. Turn it back on.


    ABS and track lights are / stay on. (head lights still off)

    Hit the brake peddle one time and ABS and Trac lights GO OFF.

    Truck runs normal again.
