    I don't mind loosing BSM or the Cross Traffic Alert since I got the new tow mirrors install by the dealer. But the 2 warning indicators on my dash will not go out and I can't get into the menu to turn off the Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) Anybody have an idea how to turn these functions off? I will head to the dealer Monday but would like to have some intelligent questions to ask. First new truck in 40 years. Got a few more bells and whistles on it than that 1978 Cheyenne truck did at 6 times the cost.
    appreciate everyone's time!

    Went out for the fifth try and finally found 3 deep into the menu the control to turn of BSM and cross traffic alert. Used to install these computers on various machines as a electrician, does not mean I fell in love with computers! ;)) Thank You for a quick response!

    I don't have a 2018 model Tundra, mine is a 2014 SR5 and I got my tow mirrors off 1A-Auto.com I just wanted to see your Tundra with the mirrors on

    Hey all, I just purchased the tow mirrors with BSM and was thinking about installing Puddle Lamps. Has anyone else done this already?

    Did you already have bsm? How do you know if bsm mirrors will work on my sr5? Is it part of the sensors on front and rear bumpers?

    Yes my Limited came with BSM. Actually I think it's the Rear sensors that are used for BMS. The front ones are for Proximity to objects in the front. So if your SR5 had BSM then you should be good to go.
