    I still get error occasionally. Have had the first recall attempt performed and still get error when rains or snows after about 40 minutes of exposure.

    Per the owners manual you’ll get TSS errors during rain and snow, this is a known “feature”.

    Is there a way to permanently disable the PCS? (ie. dealer option)

    Thanks for the link to the PCS issue. Mine had the PCS problem from the start. I fixed it by wiping and polishing the front toyota emblem in the grill all the time. The PCS sensor is in the emblem. Polishing it and waxing it makes it slippery... so dirt and water doesn’t stick to it. It helped to stop the normal weather/dirt related PCS failures.
    The current problem is that the total sensor system is failing and throwing everything from headlight to PCS to Lane departure warning and beeps.

    Getting occasional error code now. 2" lift/level and swapped to an old Pro grill with the relocation kit.
    Happens once every couple of days or so, usually out of nowhere. Minor annoyance more than anything.

    Quick update... Haven't had any issues since September. I got bedliner and a camper shell and immediately started having issues again. Then I put on airbags on the rear to bring the rear back up and haven't had any issues since.

    Thinking about that more... Someone needs to make an adjustable TSS sensor mount.

    I’m about to order a TRD pro grille for my 18 SR5- wondering if there’s a bit difference in using the Toyota OEM TSS garnish versus a $30 knockoff?

    Seems like it’s just a piece of plastic covering the sensor and we all know the OEM stuff is way overpriced.

    Any experience here would be greatly appreciated!

    I don't have any direct experience, but lots of guys bought the aftermarket Pro grill and garish from mcauto and I haven't heard of issues with those. I'm not sure if the aftermarket garish is a direct fit on the Toyota grill though, that may be your only issue, but you could probably make it fit. I agree that there is nothing special about the material used for the cover.

    I wouldn’t say recurring, happened twice same trip, both times in heavy sand on the beach. I didn’t have TRAC, etc. turned off though. Resolved with a key cycle once back on solid ground.

    I have gone in and disabled everything via the digital console in my truck. I did recently receive a Christmas tree stating that my system failed but it reset itself (Maybe because it is disabled). THEN (BIG BROTHER STUFF) I received a phone call from my local Toyota Dealership telling me that I needed to come in and have my truck serviced ASAP due to the Alert they received... UGH. I respectfully replied that the truck resolved itself and I was good to go. She seemed a bit perplexed at my response but OH WELL.

    Disable the Toyota connected services and you won’t have that issue.

    With my 2020 SR5 that I've just had about 2 months, with 19000 miles, I have had 3 or 4 incidents where the cruise control brakes the truck and lights up a red box or some sort of red indicator in the dash center screen. First time was cruising on the interstate, no cars around, went under a bridge, and bam hard brake but just for a split second thankfully. The other times have been around cars in other Lanes. I really like the radar cruise (also have on RAV4, never given any trouble there) so I'm thinking of taking it in the the dealership under warranty.

    Previous owner installed raptor grill and relocated TSS radar sensor.

    My concern is that the sensor doesn't have a cover as other relocation brackets and stock implementations have. Should I be concerned for longevity? It works fine with cruise control in it's current form. In the pic below you can see the bracket holding it and the sensor has all the electronic certification print on the front.. The bracket is one I have not seen before that bolts on to the top and the center beams.

    Hell guys....I totally swapped out my Limited chrome grill for a TRD (the one you see now) and had to mount it with one of those aftermarket sensor mount brackets behind the TRD grill. No issues on the mounting.
    Keep in mind before I did the grill swap the old Limited emblem covered TTS would have all the same buggy shit you guys have. Brand new truck out of the box.

    New grill, way different TSS mounting and still the same old buggy-ness. Oh well.
