  1. Could you post a pic at night with the latest lluminated?
  2. Damn, really thought it disabled. Thanks for testing.
  3. Well hopefully someone comes along that can prove/disprove it soon. My fuses have been out for over a week with no drivability issues.
  4. Please do! Nobody has been able to know for sure if this works. I'd like to know 100%
  5. I hooked up to my Bluetooth scan tool yesterday and I cannot see anyway to monitor how many cylinders are active in real time. I do believe pulling the fuses works but I have no way of proving it.
  6. Strange, my 5.3 runs perfectly fine without them Just waiting for someone to confirm if this actually shuts off dfm. I think it does from the way it drove last night but I want to know for sure.
  7. I have a scanner but I'm not sure if there's something that we can monitor to show dfm.... Does anyone know?
  8. Great post, I didn't know about this. Pulled 60 and 67 and just took a short ride. It will take a couple of rides this week to determine.
  9. I can tell you in my 21 Elevation if I remote start it on a cold day, within 2 minutes my seats are definetely warm and you feel it when you sit down getting in the truck. Same with the steering wheel, toasty. Sounds like something is wrong with the settings, heaters.
  10. Can't imagine you can shove a 15 under there, but I have the subthump 12" box that goes under the rear drivers side rear seat. I installed an image dynamics 12" in mine but isn't wired yet because I was having issues with the truck a i thought I was getting rid of it. Now planning to install somewhere in the spring most likely.

  12. But you never noticed this before? You could shift to L7 or L9 (if it's a 10spd) and see if it goes away. That will shut off dfm.
  13. Did they follow the directions to the T? Did they do the crankshaft relearn procedure? Ask them to do that one more time, I've seen where someone in here said the first time they did it it didn't fix it. 2nd time they did the relearn it fixed it
  14. Your only option is to take it to your dealer and see what they can find out. Short of that not sure what could be done.
  15. I don't understand this logic... If you disable dfm this doesn't drop the chance of failure to zero... this doesn't remove the faulty parts from the engine. The lifters are still problematic even though they're not be activated. Am I off base here?
  16. Ask your dealer to perform the latest ecm update and to do the crankshaft position sensor relearn. Fixed my shudder issues and the CEL light hasn't flashed for the misfire now in over a week. I think they finally fixed it.
  17. Can't help you with the lift but ask them to do the latest program update that fixes the shudder around 13mph. It's completely fixed my shudder at low speed stopping and at low roms while cruising 45-65mph. Make sure the do the crankshaft sensor relearn.
  18. I also wanted to say, that I too used to feel shaking driving at a constant speed. That is gone too it seems. So others that are feeling that, ask your dealers to do this update. So far it's been great.
  19. It really will depend on a couple things. Did the shop really fix it? Will the Toyota dealer order me exactly what I want? I'm not set in trading it, but these issues (along with the valve spring and lifter batch issues that my truck does fall in the window of) really have turned me off...its ruined my first year with the truck and left a bad taste in my mouth. But the stars will have to align with Toyota for me to trade it in. They're more expensive than I thought they would be but when you look at the tech I'd be getting vs my 21 gmc you can understand paying a bit more. The camera package is amazing on the new tundra which would be great for pulling my new car trailer next year. We shall see.
  20. Update: I'm thinking they fixed the truck. The latest program and crankshaft sensor relearn has definitely fixed the shudder problem when slowing down. I haven't seen a Cel light yet but it's only been 2 days. As far as a buy back goes, it actually makes more sense to trade it in as I'm getting what I paid for it and I get the tax credit for the trade in. The only question now is whether or not I can order the exact Tundra I want because I guess Toyota is being funny about these allocations to the dealers. It also seems like the third gen Tundras are a bit more expensive than I thought. We shall see in the coming days
  21. Update: GMC dealer did another update to the PCM today. This update they tell me should fix the remaining 10% of the CEL issue (after the last update its been significantly better) as well as the shudder issue around 13mph upon decel. This included the crankshaft sensor relearn. I'm going to pick it up tomorrow, we shall see.
  22. I appreciate it. I'll be around for awhile, it's going to be the end of the year at best before the Tundra shows up.
