    Did some brief digging. Looks like a conventional code that on most Toyota's points to a speed sensor.

    Wheel speed sensor?
    Vehicle speed sensor?
    Engine speed sensor?

    I don't know. I just google searched some other Toyota forums since most of the codes are generic.

    That’s what I’ve been doing. Trying to get an answer as to where the turbine sensor is located. Guy at dealer thinks may be internal. If it is I’m screwed. Still waiting for call back.

    It should be visible. More simple google digging points to a speed sensor on the transmission somewhere. Use google, Youtube, or wait for someone to chime in who has also had this exact problem.

    Havent really been under a tundra before but sounds/looks like a sensor near bellhousing that takes a read off inputshaft or tourqe converter. Acts like a magnetic pick up sensor, sensor may have gone bad itself causing a no signal code

    I’ve tried YouTube and google can’t get an answer but dealer called back and told me it’s located on top of transmission but kept insisting I bring it in for diagnostic

    Sensor went south. Change it out, clear code, and drive.

    Dodge/Jeeps/7.3 PSD ate crankshaft position sensors. Might be fun to get to like on Jeeps.

    Ome of the components inside a tourqe comverter is called a turbine and it is also monitored by sensors and such. That fact that it is giving a code for no signal at the sensor makes no sense im sure that turbine is spinning (bolted to flexplate and locked into pump on the front of trans) my guess is bad sensor. 2014 truck shouldnt havhave a wiring problem already. Im sure its located on side or top of trans case at the fromt of case.

    I haven’t noticed any difference in performance of my truck. Still runs like a beast. Just don’t wanna spend an unnecessary amount of money at dealer

    You probably wont if anything you may notice a difference in shift points. That is just a sensor issue the rest of the components i mentioned are mechanical the sensor just monitors ot but the light is a bother and you dont want to cause issues id just throw a mew sensor in it and call it a day. Can't be too much of a pain, probably held in by a 10mm and a O-ring

    From what I’ve found sounds pretty good. Just gotta figure out how to get to it
