    The truck goes into drive but won’t go forward, it’s like the brakes are stuck. It’s now back at the dealership, has anyone have this problem.
    I have to turn the truck on and off 5 to 6 times, Before it will go.

    The drum brakes can stick in cold weather.

    I’ve never had that problem. But like the other posters said cold weather will stick the drums. Not saying that’s the fix but its definitely something to think about

    I had that issue once on my 2017 TRD off road manual trans. It felt like my brakes where locked up completely on all 4 corners. I ended up pushing the brake pedal and they let go. It's been a year and it hasn't happened since. It was in the summer time so probably around 75°f.

    I want to say thank you to everyone who has responded to this post, Toyota is sending a engineer out to look at the truck on Monday, they now will not give me my truck back because they say it’s now unsafe to drive.

    Update ,Toyota had there engineer out, they were unable to duplicate the problem. But they did replace the ABS system on the truck and a few other electrical systems that were connected to the brakes. So good news I have my truck back. So we are keeping our fingers crossed on this one IMG_4555.jpg
