2018+ Toyota Tacoma TSS Notice
LEGAL NOTICE FOR 2018+ TOYOTA TACOMA WITH TSS SENSOR
All models of the 2018+ Toyota Tacoma's are equipped with a TSS sensor in the front of the grille. Depending on the model of your truck, this sensor is located either behind the logo/emblem or under the lettering (for TRD Pro models)
Several functions (but not limited to) of the sensor are to provide pre-collision warnings, maintain an adaptive cruise control mode, and even apply brakes if necessary. While the driver is responsible for all activities associated with driving, such as paying attention to the road, acceleration, braking, and more, the sensor is meant to lower the chance of a vehicular accident.
In any custom grille we build to accommodate this sensor, a cutout with flush mounting points is provided at the bottom of the grille. A polycarbonate plate is placed in front of the sensor to help avoid issues with dirt, debris, water, etc. This is meant to mimic the original grille and sensor setup as much as possible. When installing one of these custom grilles, you will be moving the sensor from its original location by a distance of several inches. You should not install this grille without finding an authorized Toyota dealership to recalibrate the sensor to its new position.
Driving without a recalibration can lead to the sensor throwing false errors, which can lead scenarios such as false warnings or even sensor-applied braking. This should not be taken lightly as this can cause injuries or even death to the driver and others.
