    Default Things My Tundra Does That I Didn't Know...

    until I read the manual. SR5 model

    This could be a good thread to highlight little things we didn't know our trucks did until we read the manual. I know, so un-manly.

    1. That the head lights (W/O automatic light control system) will turn off automatically if left on. Page 164

    2. The The gas pump icon in the fuel guage points to which side the gas cap is on. Page 41

    3. Turning the key to start momentarily and releasing it will cause the crank hold function to keep cranking the engine until it starts. You just bump start and release key. Page 462

    4. If the engine coolant temp is low or you are in 4L the tranny will not shift into overdrive. Page 217


    They're just little things that caught my eye when reading the manual.

    The fact that the lid on the center console slides forward is really nice. And thanks to another TS member for pointing this out. I didn't see this in the manual.

    I found that last week and for some reason was so excited. I love finding little easter eggs like that.

    I also noticed that there is a "recycled" logo on the lower part of the plastic door pieces.

    A standard frame Glock fits nicely in the long cubby between the cup holders and the gear selector.

    Does anyone know if the JBL Bluetooth Nav system will vary the volume based on speed? I don't own one of these trucks yet but have driven on several times so I have a good idea about most of the features but didn't notice that it did this so I assume it doesn't. Can anyone confirm/deny this.

    I just found out that the cover for the "Glock compartment" stows on the underside of the center console lid - a pretty neat feature. You can also store tissues, a map, and a pencil on the underside of the lid (although I've yet to find a pen/pencil that fits in the pencil holder...)

    Take a standard size pen and slide it in from the top. They dont fit if you just try and "snap" them into place from the front. I have a regular pen in there and it stays in place great.

    My 1911 Colt fits great in the front part of the door compartment.

    it does vary the volume based upon speed...and it does it so well you dont even notice...the volume just sounds the same all the time.... took me awhile to figure out what that button was on the NAV screen

    My center console slides about 3 to 4 inches forward. Is that as far as it slides?

    Buckets seats, The lid release alows the lid to move forward. You have to retrack it to open the lid. I stumbled on that last week.

    I found out that the sun visors extend too. You know that annoying couple of inches that is never covered when you have the sun visor rotated around to the side window? Well, these puppies slide on the rod so you can fill that void. SWEET

    I don't have one with the JBL, i have the 6-disc changer version.
    I know that the 6-disc changer also has the volume based on speed function.
    It's called ASL (i think) on the menu.

    I love the auto lights off feature. I leave mine on all the time.
    My wife's car has that and mine didn't, till now!
    This brings up a question i've been wondering, does any one know how to turn on the fog lights only without needing the low-beam lights?

    I haven't read all the manual yet, but one day we're all going to want to know how to reset that pesky tire sensor thing.

    Also, does anyone know if we get a light at 5000 miles reminding us to change the oil? We'll want to know how to reset that too!
