Re: Tundras are no fun in the snow.

I can turn them off in D as long as I'm stopped.

Yeah, the first time I wanted to do some donuts in the snow with my Tundra I had my wife with me and failed miserably lol. I was like, WTH is wrong with this thing?!? I felt like I'd fallen on my face at the middle school dance while trying to impress my date........

Off = Yes.

Back on = No.

You must be doing something wrong? all of us can turn them on/off while in D, as long as we are not moving. I have a 2012, and have no problems turning mine off at stop lights, etc

Just to be clear:

The Auto LSD button (or whatever it is called) is the one near your right knee, correct?

To fully defeat the nannies, you press a total of three times in succession. The first press is a quick press, the send and third are both press and hold for 3+ seconds.

If I am in drive, I can toggle Auto LSD on and off to my heart's content.

However, I *cannot* fully defeat the nannies, which is a different thing, right?

You can all do this? I will have to try again...

yes, yes we can.
or the short cut...
hold for 3 seconds until the two lights come on then hold it for another three seconds until the other lights come on.

After all the process the lights that are lit on the cluster should only be the squirry lines and TRAC OFF, right? This indicates snow fun time!

And although it works if you do a first initial press of the button, it's unnecessary. Just hold the button for 3 seconds. Two lights will come on. I believe it is the amber lit truck picture with wavy lines, and the red lit "AUTO LSD". Release the button and press it again, while holding it for 3 seconds again. The "TRAC OFF" light will come on and the red "auto LSD" light will turn off.

Now you have two amber lights, and no red lSD light. Your nannies are now off, so you can get on with the tire shredding and donut doing. This applies to my 2012.

Oh, Tundra... I feel like I hardly know you! How could I have been so wrong? I blame myself. I meant to spend more time with you, more QUALITY time, but somehow, our lives seem to get in the way..



Thanks, everyone! I am not sure how I had come to the wrong understanding about this. I went back to check, and behold - it worked just as you said, in park or in drive.

Awesome!

Before I traded in my 2010 tundra, I disabled the wimpy buttons really just there to annoy the heck out of us in the snowy WI winters and boy, it was fun to powerbrake the rear end and leave skidder marks 20 yards long. Love the smell of burning rubber in more ways than one - LOL
