    I’ve never had my truck brake for me. Even when it should have. I’ve never had it tell me I should brake when there isn’t a reason it should. I don’t trust it. :spy:

    My TSS is telling me I need to go see the dealer. I have a 2019 Platinum, just swapped out the headlamps for the 2019 Black TRD PRO lights. I disconnected the TSS to remove the grill, the lights look amazing! Now I have the you broke something you dumb bitch lights on with the take me to the dealership and get me fixed notification. The truck is going in Wednesday or Thursday for installation of the ARB summit bumper install, the service advisor told me the grill needed to come off at that time. They will recalibrate and we shall see.

    I just purchased a 2019 limited and it has TSS. The PCS and Lane departure came turned off by default from the dealer. I can turn it on but I have not yet.

    I dont think it auto brakes.

    I think it just tells you that you are going to have a shitty day if you dont.

    ETA: Toyota says it does.
    Hope I never have to try it.

    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.
