    The reason the dealer refused to calibrate the radar sensor is because they can't on a lifted truck. To calibrate the system properly there are targets that are set up at certain heights and distances then the sensor is calibrated to the targets. If the truck is lifted then the target height is not correct. The dealer won't calculate the difference. They could be liable so it's always done to Toyota standards. This also applies to the blind spot monitor and the camera behind the windshield. You really do have to start thinking is the lift worth it to go through all the aggravation. Toyota has now come out with a software update that requires the owner of a lifted truck to have to turn the PCS on everytime the vehicle is started. The customer signs a paper agreeing they are liable and accept full responsibility when they turn the PCS on.

    Potatoes.

    I honestly hate the radar mode and wish we could switch the default setting to normal cruise control.

    Actually, I wish we could just disable the entire TSS system. Everything about it drives me insane. I don't like all the warnings and errors, I just want to drive in peace.

    Hold the cruise button in and it will be in normal mode. You can go to the dealer and have the radar off when you start the vehicle and the default would be you have to activate it. Lane departure can be turned off.

    There was an updated that Toyota applies for lifted or modified grill trucks. Requires the owner to activate the radar that way Toyota isn't liable if there is a crash.
