#451 of 490 toyota tundra remote door lock "chirp" device
Aug 01, 2006 (2:57 pm)
I just lost the "chirp" which follows locking/unlocking doors with the remote. It's probably wired into the headlamp circuit since the lights still flash, but the sound is gone. Anyone know where the Piezo is located? I can't find it and dealer manuals don't seem to show it.

Have you tried the procedure in the manual? There's a procedure to turn the chirp on or off.

Thanks, yes, I've tried to program with remote many times to no avail. It's the device under the hood

I bought an 05 tundra crew cab in march 05 and the beast has been nothing but problems. My current dilemna is a squeak coming from the back end over uneven roads. Dealer tells me it is a body flex noise and only way to repair is to remove spray in bed liner to access bolts. Dealer unwilling to reimbure to fix bed liner (Not Cheap) as though I planned for this to happen thus it is my fault and I am responsible for the cost to repair the damage their techs cause. Is there any help out there to advocate on my behalf or any other suggestions for what the noise may be. Gaskets already replaced on the back end shocks as well as all moving parts well greased.

Your filter is located on the driver's side front part of the engine and attaches to the oil cooler. You will have to drop the under engine cover to access. I installed a remote filter location system using AN fittings and mounted it under the fender well and towards the front bumper. Works great so I do not have to drop the cover anymore, plus now instead of 6.5 qts and have an 8 qt capacity along with a large filter for better filtration. Hope this helps

I have a 2005 Tundra Crew Cab 4WD , I have 20k miles on my truck. It has been doing the same thing. The first time it did it, I had pulled up to a red light and had come to a complete stop within a few seconds THUMP, I thought I had been rear ended, but there was no one behind me. I carried it back to the dealership and they could not find anything wrong, they said to keep an eye on it and it was logged in the system so if later, it got worse they would have a record. It has done this the whole time I have had this truck. Recently, I am getting a weird Thumpy feeling from the truck when I back up. It is due for its 20K check-up so maybe it will do it again for the Service dept. My gas milage has also declined I filled up today and only got 12.6 mpg. city/highway driving. So they had better figure it out.
I'll keep you informed.

It is unfortunate that a bunch of people that have never driven a Tundra are posting unfavorable comments. I had a Tundra that I traded only because I wanted a true 4 door. Never had a single problem, and as a professional mechanic, I offered to look at hundreds of problems with Toyotas. Suprise, they all got fixed before I had a chance to check them out. If someone complains about a vehicle, chances are they don't even own one.
#460 of 490 2001 Tundra Clutch Squeek
Aug 15, 2006 (10:59 am)
I have a 2001 6 cyl manual shif long bed tundra that produces a squeek everytime I depress the clutch. Does anyone know where the squeek is coming from so that I an lube the #$% out of it. I have tried numerous places and it still squeeks. Please help.
P.S. It is our weekend vehicle that only has 37K miles on it. We love it because when we go camping, we can sleep in the 8 ft bed comfortably and we're off the damp ground. Plus, it is really easy to carry all the toys (quads, bikes, etc.) when we go to the desert as well.
