    LOL
    It's blared at me a few times, 1 when traveling on a curved road and i thinks i'm going to hit a parked car on the curve road going 35-40mph, 2, when it was foggy and the sensor somehow got enough moisture on it to think it's blocked, neither time did it try to brake. If it brakes, hopefully someone behind me doesn't rear end me due to this..

    It yelled at me a couple times approaching another car at a stop sign. I guess I wasn't slowing down fast enough.
    Not a fan of this in my truck but if I bitch about the tech people will call me old

    Let me tell you it will scare the shit out of you. It happened in my highlander on a 50mph road. Some lady decided to turn left at the last second. So I turned to the right lane to avoid hitting her. As I was about to pass the system kicked in and brought me to a screeching halt. even as I was trying to gun it because I knew traffic was barreling down on me. The guy behind them locked them up. I think he crapped his pants. I must of dropped enough swear words to expand my daughters vocabulary for a while.

    Daytime. Highway 95. Radar cruise control active and working. Cruise set at 79 MPH. Car in right lane swerved in front of me Cole Trickle style. My brakes applied themselves decelerating vehicle as well as a blinking red maybe orange message in center console saying BRAKE. So my truck did apply braking power a millisecond before I did. No screeching rubber but it definitely started stopping the truck for me. In this instance I feel it worked properly. I have a stock 2019 CM SR5. It will soon have 6112/5160 when backorder 2019magedon ends.

    I know how those systems work, I've experienced it on our 2019 Subaru Ascent with eyesight in stop and go traffic drama lol. I just haven't on the tundra.

    You might want to check the sensitivity setting, it has 3 or 4 settings and will stay where it’s set.

    So my question is, what are the Toyota approved modifications regarding lift and tire sizes?

    Are they any lift or tire purchased thru a Toyota dealer? Installed by only a Toyota dealer?
    If that's the case then open up sales for the fox pro suspension, at a reasonable price, including installation, make your customers want to spend more money with you.

    Interesting, I have been told 2 things regarding the grill removal for the 18 and up tundras.

    1- no need to have anything re calibrated,

    2- per the dealership any time the grill comes off it has to be recalibrated..

    I give up lol

    Yeah, sorry. Not close to you. Akron area. Bought my truck from a dealer in Akron and I wasn’t too happy with the circumstances of the purchase. When it came time for warranty work, I went to the more local dealer to me. They have been nothing shy of awesome!

    Update on this. Two weeks ago I was denied due to truck being leveled and larger tires. Went in today for trailer brake controller TSB, same dealer. Service advisor said now they can do it but customer has to sign some liability disclaimer paperwork absolving them of any issues related to the PCS post recall if the truck has been lifted or grille altered, etc. I'm on the fence of having them perform the recall because I'm really not having frequent issues with the PCS and I'm concerned there is some risk that if they perform the recall calibration portion, it could make things worse than they already are...and after signing this paperwork there would possibly be no recourse.

    I spoke to a Toyota mechanic who jumped ship to another brand, he said he would leave the grill plugged and just move to the side a little and tie it off while he changed out the head lights, or go ahead and disconnect but it should not need to be re calibrated. If it does let him know he can do it for me LOL....

    Got the update done. They added their sealant and the PCS malfunction light still came on. Im shocked since the truck only has 3200kms. Re booked for May 15.

    Asking for a friend. If he was about to install a lift and new wheels and tires on his 2019 Tundra, would he want to wait to do the calibration after everything is installed or do it before everything is installed? 3 inch lift total. For a friend....

    Catch 22.

    I would think after for recalibration (hence the word). However, you may have a hard time finding a dealer to do it.

    It would be nice if the system could be easily calibrated after the lift was installed. The sensor and camera need to be calibrated together. But Toyota is the only one that can do it and they charge way too much.

    So I guess “my friend” should do the new suspension lift and tires and see how it goes for a few days? And if it’s is a crap show then go back in and do the recalibration.

    So here is the deal they just updated the recall for all you lifted guys we do everything as normal except we shut the system off and have the owner sign a fourm that states the vehicle has been modified you can turn the system back on with no problem but if any issues come up with the system it's no longer warranty.

    I never had mine recalibrated after my level was done. Had no issues. Also no issues after I unplugged it to relocate it when I added a pro grille.

    They can go to hell. I’ve had my PCS issues for 13,000 miles and 6 visits to service before it was lifted. Even filed the first buyback claim before the lift. No way am I passing responsible to myself now that it’s lifted. I don’t know how they think liability is transferred now that the truck is lifted. Issues were present way before.

    Mine is not lifted or leveled, just a larger stock tire. Every now and again the sensor goes bonkers, lights up my dash, but hasn't slammed on the brakes yet. The warranty work is scheduled for my first oil change, but this whole thing pisses me off. The PCS has been doing this shit from day one, and the "turn it off" option would be fine if they want to compensate me for the money I spent on a feature that is seemingly faulty.

    Strongly considering something different in terms of brand for the next 4-wheeled machine....

    I've had mine hit the brakes a few times on its own before I had the recall done. Mostly during a curve for a four lane highway headed home. It seems a car, going in the same direction as I am, but in the other lane than I am. That car is actually a head of me, but in the lane beside me. We start the curve and the sensor I guess just points straight and doesn't realize it's a curve. It sees said other car and freaks out. Lights up, beeps, and brakes. Had it happen plenty of times. I've also had it randomly beep but not brake.

    Got the recall done and haven't had that happen yet but I have had it come up with a message saying that the front camera wasn't working. No rain, no snow, no dirt, not dark, no direct sunlight. Just turned onto another road and there came the message. It went away on its own though shortly.

    So- I’m at the dealer now. They spotted my lift when I pulled it in and had me sign the “Non-Toyota-Approved Modification” form, and checked off the lift and tire boxes. Manager says when he gives my keys back, just turn the PCS back on and he’ll even show me how if needed. Said he would not put any sticker on the dash.
    He said they mod trucks before they sell them and will cover all of this if they sell with a lift, etc. and not put stickers on either. I do have to come back next week for the foam sealant piece they said they can’t order ahead of time- they are ordered per each inspection. They also covered a pre 12,000 mile alignment even though he said he wasn’t supposed to, since I modified the front suspension. Said he’d “eat a shit sandwich” on it, but didn’t care. Good dealership experience!!

    Just contacted my dealer and they ran my VIN and said no recall or anything is necessary for my vin.
    Given that information, when I install my Bilstein 6112 and rear shocks and shackles and new wheels and tires should or will I still need a recalibration done for the system? Or is three inches that happy spot (that’s what she said?!)
