    Smack the dash until it starts working? Haha, JK. Could be a loose connection or plug. Ultimately, it's A new truck with a warranty. If it gets complicated take it back and say "fix it!"

    Almost has to be a loose connection or the head unit has gave up the ghost.
    Take it to the dealership either way since it’s under warranty.

    I bought my 2018 TRD off road long bed V6 on 7/16 of this year. The first week of September I had 1700 miles on the truck and was cleaning the interior. When I put the truck away I noticed that I had no clock showing. Brought it to the dealer the following day and he could find no cause so I made an appointment. By the time I brought the truck in for service, I had lost the GPS.

    Long story short, the antenna wire had high resistance which fried the radio/gps/info center. The dealer replaced the antenna and wire, and the radio. Retail on the radio was $3600.00 No fuses were blown.

    That’s a chunk of money.

    I think the dealer saw all the profit that they made on my sale walk out the door that day, even if cost on the parts is 50% of retail.

    Don’t feel to bad. The dealer doesn’t loose any money on recalls or warranty work. They get paid by Toyota. Toyota lost some money but don’t feel to bad for them they factor that into the price of the vehicles they sale. That’s why a loaded new Tacoma is $40K not $30k.

    Hopefully they'll take some of that profit and put it into a self-supporting hood on future Tacoma's

    Oh, I am aware of the remidies, I just think for 36 K Toyota could install them at the factory and not me after I buy the truck.

    They do that with a lot of vehicles. There is no storage under the rear seat of my 2018 tundra crewmax and the back of the seat is stationary you can’t access behind it at all. There is no where to put any tow straps, tie downs, portable air compressor, machete nothing SMH $700 for a good fix and $150 for a cheap one. And even then those are only 4” deep

    Dang. That sucks. You’d think that with all that room in a tundra there’d be all kinds of storage.
