I have a 2005 Tundra truck with 97,000 miles on it. I just purchased the truck a few weeks ago but have had a problem with the brakes since day 1. The problem is a soft brake pedal that will not hold a firm brake when the brakes are applied. The pedal will "sink" about 2/3 the way to the floorboard and will stop the vehicle but the soft pedal does not instill confidence in the braking system. I have replaced the brake master cylinder and the vacuum booster (at a cost of almost $1600) but the pedal is still soft. It acts like there is air in the brake system, but bleeding of the brakes does not help. Anyone else experiencing any similiar problems?

I have the exact same issue with my 2005 tundra. Had the rear axle bearings replaced, along with the left rear speed sensor, now the abs kicks in at very low speed when braking. Did you ever figure out your problem?
#44 of 54 2005 Tundra ABS Problem
Apr 26, 2011 (7:39 pm)
I have a 2005 tundra. I was experiencing rear axle noise, so I was taking it to my mechanic. On the way there the abs light came on. Brakes were inspected and looked good. Rear axle was inspected and found the axle bearings were shot. The diagnostic machine also showed the left rear speed sensor was not working. Replaced the axle bearings and speed sensor, now when you brake at very low speeds the abs kicks in and the brake pedal pulsates and makes a noise from the abs kicking in. This happens about 50% of the time when you brake. Any ideas what's wrong? Anyone else have a similar problem? Thank's

did you ever get any thing to work on stoping the abs from being over sensitive on your tundra, I am experiencing the exact same issue.
Mechanics are unable to figure it out.

try a set of pads from the dealer, if the pads are to hard you will get the abs to come on.

It's a known fact even with the new updates on the 03 on which my Tundra has on as well these problem's still occur.
The Tundra has a pretty good stopping distance however they still have reported problems on brakes having vibes and wheel outset issues just common knowledge coming from this truck beyond that something we can live with.

I have the same problem with my 2005 Toyota tundra tx edition, I had the driverside bearings replaced and now the brakes go all the way to the floor board. I have tried to bleed all the brakes in the order that the book says, and that still didn't work. I was about to buy a new master cylinder until I read your article. can you tell me if you got your problem fixed and if you did what did you do? THANK YOU!
