    Default Roll Call: A.I.P. Plugs Disconnect?

    Just want to get a quick feedback from those who have disconnected the plugs for the A.I.P. and at what miles were it disconnected?

    I disconnected mine at 62K miles.

    Thanks!
    Glenn

    Disconnected at 1K miles, now at 13K.

    AIP Solution: Disconnect both air pumps. You will get a CEL ( Codes P0418,P0419)but no limp mode and no affect on performance. AIP system will be shut down preventing valves from opening. There are two pump connectors, one behind the coolant reservoir on the front of the engine and one below the air box along the wheel well. Both are large gray connectors. Disconnect them, tape them up, zip tie them to keep them from getting into anything hot or moving and your done. If you need service done, reconnect them before you take the truck to the dealer. Enjoy.

    oh and to keep the pumps from working and opening the valves...thus no water being sucked in and no corrosion on the valves, thus saving a couple grand by not having to replace them.

    kinda a bad work around but at this point i think its the only work around thats available. i just cant stand the thought of having the CEL on....

    anyone know if the valves are going to get stuck in the "open" position so as to have issues when you have the annual inspections and have to plug them in to get it to pass? u know, stuck open or something due to non use...

    How about you read one of the many threads that answer that question?
    My truck squeaks. I want a new one. I mean... I know it's made from mass produced parts... I know things move... I know I want a new one... that's all. I won't take the 2 hours to investigate and resolve the solution... I want the dealer to fix it... no... I want a new truck!

    Well to be fair I don't think anyone has enough miles yet to determine if the valve could get stuck closed from non-use. I know I've got 12K on mine with the pumps disconnected, but its really going to just be a time thing with that. But the valves should not corrode if the system is not functioning so there should not be a problem if its hooked back up again. If everything works as we think then that should occur, but only time and miles will tell if that is true.

    Edit for poor reading. If there was a concern I would be more concerned about the valves freezing close from non use rather than if they open and then stick from non-use. But only time will tell for either one. I'll never hook mine back up for the life of the truck unless its for testing for some of the folks here.

    But if your CEL is on, how will you know if you have another CEL for another problem?

    All the major components have their own gauges and own warning lights. If something small fails though, you won't unless you read the codes or notice something wrong. Regarding how few other problems there are with these trucks throwing lights, I know a few have had 4wd issues throwing a combination of lights, and the wheel speed sensors freezing, there really have been few if any other problems that have thrown a cel. The AIP is the major problem on these trucks. My point is that other issues are small and even the ones I posted above will trigger different lights to alert you to other problems.

    well in all honestly, a CEL rarely is for a real problem anyway. its 99 percent of the time for some sensor that is supposed to detect a problem but in reality its the sensor itself that went belly up.

    Mine started tripping the CEL for a stuck closed valve around 60K miles so I unplugged the pumps. Toyota tech checked to make sure the valves were fully closed on the techstream computer; so we just left the pumps unplugged because I'm not paying to have the valves replaced. I'm over 72k miles now, no problems, I leave my Scan-gauge plugged in all the time so if there is another code tripped I can see it on the Scan-gauge.

    Hope that helps...

    so let me get this right if this failure happens i can simply unplug, live with a cel and not put up with dealers excuse, bs, things i did to make this happen. or does it need to be unplugged prior too? unplugged if the damage is minimal? or unplugged with damage already? what if the valves aren't fully closed?
