    Has anyone got any resolution on This issue yet???? We bought a 2018 Tundra SR5. Since day 1, pre-collision and towing brake error appear. Like others mentioned, we can get it to turn off by restarting the truck but the warning lights come back on after driving a little ways. First time in the dealer, they re-set the yaw sensor. 10 minutes after leaving, warning lights back on. Now currently in shop at the dealer. They wanted to replace the airbag sensor thinking that was causing the problem. Now the dealer is saying that is not fixing the error. Has anyone had this issue repaired that actually fixed the problem.

    Thanks

    Now dealer called and said it's fixed. They replaced the airbag sensor and reset everything. They want is to not to use the USB port for one week. They said if this doesn't fix the problem, we will need to. Ring back for third time and they will replace the engine control module. They have only driven it around parking lot, not actually taken it on the road. I told them not picking it up until they drive it for a few miles....thinking the lights will come back on.

    Oh don't get me wrong, black looks good but the time it takes to keep it looking good is where it goes south for me.

    And where do you work?? I forgot.... Oh yeah a body shop....

    None. Keeping this one stock.
    I elevated my same issue to the Regional Toyota. Had a regional tech come down, couldn't find anything wrong. however, he ordered new radar for up front. Mine with disable precollisoni, and the radar cruise would fault out, give messages about the sensor. Inside 5 or 6 miles, it would go away. This happened for about 2 weeks. Hasn't happened since December 22nd, when we got a little cooler weather down here in Texas. January 9th, is when I had the regional tech do his thing. They also flashed the center air bag ecu, as there was a recall on that for software.

    I went to the dealer today and they read the codes. They told me it was a faulty Yaw sensor that needs to be replaced. It has been put on order and they are going to call me when it comes in.

    Don’t need to replace th sensor. All you need is a software update. There is a recall for this issue. Search by vin on Toyota’s website

    It's an unfortunate issue. Although if you take pictures every time and document as much as you can. I bought mine 12-14-17, and have been fighting this battle since. I was finally able to get forward progress when I dropped the truck off on Monday and they changed my front sensor.

    Just can’t trust technology particularly when it’s driven by govt safety or energy requirements.

    I brought my truck in last week for this same issue.Happened twice within the first 100 miles of owning the truck.The warning lights had gone off by the time I dropped it off.As i suspected they were not able to find anything wrong and sent me on my way with muddy floor mats and a dirty steering wheel left by the "technician".Good news is that the warnings have not returned but I only have less than 600 miles so far on the truck.

    My '18 Limited just started with this issue yesterday. I was told that the truck got the software update before I took delivery in late February. There are no recalls or TSBs listed with I enter my VIN on the website. Haven't had an issue with it except for a handful of bogus BREAK warnings when there was nothing in front of me. As soon as I started the truck yesterday, I was getting the Pre-Collision malfunction, Trailer Break malfunction, and Drive-Start Control malfunction messages. The truck has almost 6k miles on it. I filled the tank, made sure the gas cap was tight, tried turning the key to Ignition but not starting the truck. No matter what I do, the warnings keep displaying along with the check engine light, and my backup cam won't come on when I shift into reverse. I did recently replace the JBL radio with a Pioneer unit and iDataLink Maestro, which has been working fine for a month. The camera still works if I select the view from the radio, but will not come on in reverse. I'll be contacting the dealership to see what they can do about it.

    I must be lucky because my 2018 Sr5 has had zero issues. I did get an error once on the pre-collision, but that was in a snowstorm and the sensor was covered in dirty ice. No issues since.

    I got the "drive start control malfunction" today, when I was pulling into the parkade, as I was powering the vehicle down for the day, cracking a window for moisture, no pic taken.

    Started it back up immediately as it caught me off guard and nothing happened, no warnings. Cold and lots of snow, but believe the sensor was clean, it was when I left the house. All lights and other controls were fine for the drive, no issues, nothing added or messed around with in terms of fuses.

    Hopefully it was nothing and I'm good to go, but I'll definitely take pics next time and keep an eye on it. I sure hope I can get home and out of the parkade.
