#1954 of 1986 Where is the TPMS reset switch on a 2005 Tundra?
Oct 22, 2009 (5:45 pm)
I just had new winter tires installed on my Tundra 2005 and the TPMS light now stays on all of the time. It did nor come on with the old tires. The new tires are on the old rims with the same sensors as before. I have checked that all tires have the correct pressure. On net I have found several postings saying the TPMS switch must be used to reset the system. The problem is -- where is the reset switch. A person who identified himself as a Toyota tech said it was located at the lower end of the steering column and had a symbol like the TPMS light in the instrument cluster. Searching with a good light I could find no switch. Another said it was near the hood release -- to slide your hand along the lower edge of the dash and you would find a button. None there. Another said it was combined with the odometer/trip selector -- but no combination of pressing reset buttons has any effect. There may have been another suggestion given, but the bottom line is that I cannot find the TPMS on my 2005 Tundra.
Do any of you know where it is?
Thanks in advance for your help.

Sounds like everyone is in the right area. It's located under the steering column toward the bottom of the dash. I'm not looking at it now, but it seems like there's also a vent in that area as well. I know I can reach it while driving as I reset it awhile back after getting tires rotated. Also, did you check the pressure in the spare tire?
And the person recommending the odometer reset was confused, because that's used to reset the maintenance light. Your manual covers all of this.
#1956 of 1986 toyota tundra engine oil leak
Nov 11, 2009 (1:25 pm)
I just noticed an engine oil leak in my 2005 Toyota Tundra ( 2wd, dc, 99k mi ). I have been keeping it very well maintained and have never towed anything with it. The high miles (mostly highway) are due to my long commute to work.
I thought, being a toyota, it would be trouble free ( except maitenance ) for at least 200k miles.
I've seen similar complaints on lower miles tundras and it seems to be the rear main seal. Do you know how much this would cost to fix ?
#1957 of 1986 2010 electronic gas pedal
Nov 14, 2009 (4:21 am)
I have a 2010 d-cab with a 4.6 and i cant get used to gas pedal, it kinda has a delay when driving around town like when i come to a stop sign and still rolling 5mph + - and give it some gas to take off ( keep in mind i dont have a lead foot try to save gas) the tranny seams like its in a higher gear than it should be so when you give it some gas it seams like it slips trying to get to a lower gear. the problem is between 5mph to about 20 mph,the truck is great for getting on the highway its like a rocket and rides great just dont know if there is a tranny prob or that is just how the electric gas pedal works, if anybody eles has the same prob or is it me? p.s. the truck has about 1200 miles on it.

i have noticed the same thing, mostly when engine is cold, and it seems to go away once warmed up. it's a little quirky, but i've gotten used to it. have seen other posts that refer to it, but no one has said it's a problem.

If you own one of the models listed in the recall and have actually experienced the unintended acceleration, please send an email with details of the experience and how it felt.
