    Hello to all.
    I am a new 2016 Tacoma owner

    I have had it for about a week and have had zero problems until today.
    I have been using a USB to listen to music from my iPhone and it has been great but all of a sudden it will play 3 seconds of the first song then start over repeatedly. I thought it was my chord so I bought a new one and that was not the issue. The stereo tells me to see the user manual to see how to connect iPod to stereo.

    Also, the Bluetooth won’t let me skip songs.

    Has this happened to anyone else and do you know how to resolve the issue?

    Try a hard reset on your phone and see if that fixes it. That’s usually the problem when it starts acting like that out of no where. If that doesn’t work, try deleting the truck from your Bluetooth and reconnect

    I had the same issue on my 16 sport. I dealer did something to fix when I had my oil changed.

    Interesting. Using my Bluetooth to listed to lectures, I sometimes will go about 6 to 10 minutes into the audio, and then it replays from the beginning.

    I have a 17 TRD Sport

    Next time it happens I will do a hard restart. Thanks.

    Just remembered, the other thing to do when Bluetooth starts acting up is look for an update on your phone. This has helped me several times.

    Make sure your phone is updated.

    Also, is your music on your phone or in the cloud? I noticed the same issue with music playing in the cloud, it will either restart or skip to the next song.

    I got one for you...

    Occasionally, my center dash screen goes blank, flashes and then continues. Called the dealer and was told there was an update necessary.


    20k service I asked for the update to be done. Got a blank look.

    Anyone see that happen before and if so, how was it fixed?

    Snap your fingers at them until the blank look goes away.

    Might need to check for the update through the radio. Mine pops up that an update is ready to download and install.

    My 2017 radio occasionally does a complete reboot when using Siri or on connecting a phone call with my iPhone X.

    They tried to say the phone caused the reboot (what???)

    First time could not duplicate so they did nothing
    Then Update
    Waiting a month now for “a part”

    Not sure who to complain to since the dealer seems to have me on disregard

    Should this be a new topic?

    Contact corporate and start a case they will contact the dealer you’re working with and sometimes that gets things moving.

    Yes, my 2016 did the same thing. I took it about 3-4 times, then they replaced the radio. Worked for about a week and then started again. It has to do with the communication between technology. It is always changing so it is difficult to keep it linked apparently. I plan to take it back again. I had a similar issue in a Dodge Dart I owned, but ended up lemon laying the piece of junk because of the issue.
