Toyota recently announced a TSB (Technical Service Bulletin) for the 2007-2011 Tundra concerning a condition where the check engine light will show “On.”
In response to reports of air induction pump assemblies and/or air injection switching valves issues on their 2007-2010 Tundra and 2008-2010 Sequoia models, Toyota has decided to increase its warranty on these parts and is even offering a reimbursement if you already had this issue fixed. This is a great relief for owners since it was an such an expensive fix as we reported in April, 2010, Tundra and Sequoia $4000 Air Injection System Problem.

Toyota has released a TSB for some of its 2007-2010 Tundras regarding a power front seat that fails to operate because the 30-amp seat fuse is open. An improperly seated wiring harness has been determined to be the cause and installation of an updated wiring harness protector has been identified as the fix.
Installation of the updated wiring harness protector will be installed under Toyota’s Comprehensive Warranty until the expiration of 36,000 miles or 36 months from the date the vehicle was placed in service. The TSB number is 0060-11.
How to Repair the Power Front Seat and Open Fuse Issue
1. Make sure that the front power seat is inoperative and that the fuse is open. If either of these conditions is not met, then this TSB isn’t applicable. There will be another one, not to worry.
2. Remove the front power seat switch.
Here are some photos sent to us by commentor Lee-HSV of the rusted frame recently removed from his 2000 Toyota Tundra. As you can see, the frame structure was very compromised.

In news that is sure to get the ‘haters’ all fired up, today Toyota has announced a recall of almost all 2011 Tundras because of a potential driveshaft casting defect in 0.05% of all trucks sold during the model year.
[Toyota will conduct] a voluntary safety recall on approximately 51,000, 2011 model year Tundra trucks to inspect the rear drive shaft. The rear drive shaft in an estimated 0.05 percent of the vehicles may include a component (slip yoke) that could break due to improper casting during the foundry process. Toyota is aware of one drive shaft slip yoke failure in a customer-owned vehicle. There are no reports of accidents or injuries associated with this condition. No other Lexus or Toyota vehicles are involved in this recall
Yes, you read that correctly. 0.05% of 51k 2011 Tundras may have a defective driveshaft…if you’re doing the math on that one, the answer is Toyota is worried about 25 trucks.
Toyota is going to recall an entire year’s worth of trucks just to find 25 of them that may have a defect. Crazy, no?
What makes this recall even more amazing is that Ford hesitated to recall 1.5 million F-150’s with malfunctioning airbags not even two months ago, even after NHTSA asked them to do a recall!
