    Truck went in this morning. On the way there the sensor went on and off and gave me the dirty or malfunction alert multiple times. Hope there is a proper fix. I want to lift it soon and don't want to have my wheels tires and suspension lay around for something so absurd on a brand new truck.

    Update: So after the campaign update and being in the dealership twice, the TSS Sensor still malfunctions and still says it is dirty. My dealership has booked me in on the 29th to have it diagnosed for 4 days and have a toyota regional tech come test the truck. I have emailed toyota Canada as well.

    Haven't been on here in a while, I've had the thing shut off a couple times and the "brake" warning come on a few times for no reason, but it didn't occur enough for me to care. I had the recall done and haven't noticed it since, but it never was much of an issue. I've got a little over 26,000 miles on my '18.

    So, Toyota Canada sent a rep down to check my truck out. He determined that the sensor itself is faulty and has water inside of it causing moisture when the sun hits it messing up the system and making the light turn on. They agreed to replace the sensor however, it is on back order and they'll call when the part is in.

    There is an open recall for all systems on the tundras. They are on back order right now. I just went to my dealership last week and they ordered the new item for me. If you are having issues not caused by rake or lift then call your local dealership and get it ordered.

    Looks like Toyota is starting to buy back trucks that have recurring issues...not a good thing. Makes me wonder if they have a clue as to how to fix it moving forward.

    Here is what I do not understand, so someone please educate me if needed..

    The recall is due to a faulty seal on a sensor from what I understand that lets moisture into the sensor and causes false readings, correct?

    If that's the case then how can Toyota say that they will not warranty a vehicle that has been lifted or leveled with non Toyota parts or even parts that are Toyota but not specific to the model they are installed on?

    When the recall has nothing to do with suspension parts at all.

    Sounds like they are not sure what to do and are grasping at straws.

    I have a 2019 with 3500 miles so far and thankfully no issues. All stock at the moment

    So they replaced your truck for the false alerts they couldn't remedy?

    Just bought a 19... no issues yet, but it only has 150 miles on it so far so don’t count my vote!

    They did apply the above TSB above which keeps the PCS from defaulting to on after each ignition cycle, they did it for free for me when I bought the truck. Just glad I knew about it from this thread and was able to ask. Doesn’t matter much at this point, as plan on leaving it on. Figured I might be glad I did it once I get around to my 3-4” lift. Want to work through the first 20-30k miles on this truck before I get crazy with a lift though.

    I have a 2018 Tundra. I've had a few issues here and there. Maybe 3-4 episodes where the "Brake" light came on. One was on a curved road with oncoming traffic. The others were random, straight highway with nothing in front of me. I have seen several "clean sensor" warnings (with a clean sensor tho). Completely random.

    The other day I power washed the truck and had the 'clean sensor' light come on. A day later I swapped the grille and a new (but different) emblem and I've had several issues since. Some of that is on me but I've had other issues before that as well. Other than a cap the truck is stock.

    PS - I have also had issues off road with various warning lights but never gave that much thought (and not part of the issues above).

    Trucks been great. Warranty work resulted in an updated vented sensor which my advisor stated that the seal is not needed for on my truck as well as a reflash and ecu update. No issues for 1000 kms driven in rain and shine.

    What off-road issues have you had? I bought this truck for off-road use and want to make sure to set my expectations where they should be before going crazy with lift/tires/re-gear/rear air locker

    I take the truck on the beach, several times I've - warning messages - PCS unavailable, don't remember the other one. Restart the truck once back on the pavement and everything is back to normal.
