    Every time I hit cruise control it says not available clean sensor. Anyone else have this issue?

    Just clean the Toyota crest in front of your truck

    If you clean it and it continues take it to the dealer. It’s a new truck under warranty.

    Taking it to dealer. I’ve cleaned it and it still won’t turn off the warning.

    This has happened to my truck twice in the past three days. It cleared after cleaning camera and sensor.

    My TSS-P acted up for the first time the other day.
    A truck pulled out in the left lane when I was in the right and I got the “BRAKE NOW” warning in the information center for a split second. It made me pucker up.
    It ticked me off at first but I guess it was actually doing what it’s supposed to do because it shut up when the truck made it completely to the left lane.

    The TSS-P also saved me from rearending an out of state car on the interstate the other day that locked its brakes up out of nowhere. All in all it’s an awesome system.

    Like the others said, clean the sensor and go from there. If it doesn’t clear up take it to the dealer ASAP.

  11. So instead of starting a new thread when this title matches perfectly, my CC doesn’t feel right when I’m cruising down the hwy. I’ll set it, and as I go over higher overpasses or hills, it seems to downshift and rev higher but then it never comes back to that cruising gear. I have to cancel CC and step on the gas to get it to shift all the way through. 2018 not even at 1k miles yet

    Mine does this also. Ive noticed if I click the cruise control down 1-2 mph it will shift back to 6th gear. The cruise control seems to be “touchy”.

    My 18 model seems better than the 17.

    Unfortunately as the others have stated it is an issue. If you give it a little upkick with the mph setting it seems to help. It also seems to be worse in areas with a lot of hills.

    On my '17 its pretty sensitive to changes in speed thus the hills which we don't have too many of......LOL Pretty flat here. We do have high winds alot and it tends to kick down to 5th so I don't use the cruise if driving against the wind.

    I have the ‘18 manual trans so I don’t have this issue. I felt the transmission on the automatics shifted at the wrong time. (I’m sure I was wrong but it felt weird).

    Same here, first road trip and it feels like emergency brake is slightly on. Is there a TSB for this or are we just stuck with it...

    The way TSB’s get made is by people letting Toyota know there is an issue. Call corporate and let them know your complaints.

    Ok so the cruise control issue I was having was water in the sensor. Dealership said it’s been a common issue with no fix yet. So like simple washing with the hose could do this to anyone. At least they are working on a fix to protect the sensor.
