Question about 2006 Toyota Tundra
After reparing my transmission , forward gears work ok but the reverse gear will not work. opened the transmission 3 times to sverify parts where istalled corectly but cant find the problem. Is it an electrical issue or a mechanical issue. please advise.
If you opened the transmission 3 times then it became useless because you would have had to put new seals in it each time. Its a slipping front or forward clutch. its a mechanical issue. Transmissions nowadays need to be torqued and lubed to the right specifications, if you are off just .00000013 on your valve body then you are screwed.

You have to remove the driveshaft (Both halves) then let a pro replace the bearing itself
reinstall and that's all there is to it

probably internal ,especially if your car has done a lot of miles/klms,you may need to look further,double check fluid level,shift from rev to drive slowly but still think trans specialist needs to look....hate to say it

If you have a Owners manual it will tell you. If Not a quick call to a Toyota dealer Service Department with your question will get you an answer. It will be easy to do. Just write the process down and put it in your glove box for next time.

There are two ways to reset the indicator light - the first is to hold down the button (hidden under the dashboard next to the steering column) until the light goes out. That's a reset.
There's also a reactivation, you hold the button until the light flashes three times and then release, that's for use after a wheel is changed, etc. Make sure they have done the reactivation, not just the reset.
If that doesn't work, have them check the technical service bulletins.
Everyone gets confused on this. I see it all the time. Good luck and thank you for using Fixya
The Highlander uses an Indirect Tire Pressure Monitoring System versus Direct type.
There is NO transponder in the air valve. The H/L uses a plain tire old valve. Thus, there is no PSI reading done by this Indirect Type System.
It uses the ABS speed sensors to calculate differences of tire rotational speed among the Four rolling tires(the Spare IS NOT included).
When the spare tire is put on, say when yu get a flat tire, the TPMS button must be pressed. (Recalibrated)
Direct Type TPMS costs more for Toyota and only puts it on select models. i.e. the Land Cruiser...
But for Toyota, the Indirect System meets DOT's TPMS mandated minimum Requirements for 2007 vehicles.
The Direct type system uses a transponder/PSI reader type Air Valve on each tire(including the Spare). Each of the 5 tires send a reading of the PSI to the reciever in the Vehicles TPMS ECU.
It has a small battery and is self powered. Battery must be replaced when yu replace your tires. It must be carefully mounted. Each tire has it's owner frequency channel and ID. for it to be recognized by the ECU.
This system is more precise. But has it's own set problems as a result.
It is the original design TPMS going back to the 1980's introduced with the Corvette and the Runflat Tire option.
