Failure Date: 02/11/2017

My traction control light has came on and stays on, my vsc light continuously flashes. The code that it keeps sending is p2440 and p2441 (secondary injection). I had went overseas with the military for two years and came back last year to change the battery and this started. The truck only has 75,000 miles. This is all the time, doesn�t matter stopped, going, high speed, low speed.

car   Vehicle Speed Control problem 3
Failure Date: 09/01/2015

I had my vehicle repaired based on the 2010 Toyota recall notice I received about the accelerator pedal. The accelerator pedal now sometimes sticks in the half-open position and refuses to return on its own. I have used the toe of my foot to pull the pedal back to the non-accelaterating position. When the vehicle is stopped, if you touch the accelerator pedal, the rpms will increase and decrease on their own, and even if the vehicle is in park position. This does not occur every time you operate the vehicle, but randomly, and with no pattern. The accelerator pedal has 3/4 to 1 inch of "free play" before it responds and feeds gas to the engine. Obviously, this could be dangerous, especially if someone besides myself was operating the vehicle. Toyota inc does not seem to understand why their "fix" to your original recall about this does not work, or they have created an additional problem with their "fix" to the 2010 recall.

car   Vehicle Speed Control problem 4
Failure Date: 02/24/2015

Didnt notice till after a mile of driving but my check engine light, vsc, and 4lo were flashing. I could not accelerate past 50 miles per hour. Unfortunately the Toyota dealership was closed and I took it in to auto shop to get the codes scanned to provide to Toyota dealership. In order to get home I had to get the codes cleared out to get it out of limp mode but I drove it to the Toyota dealership the next day and provided the codes and necessary information. Unfortunately they needed to get the codes off themselves I explained that there was a 2007 and 2008 Tundra – TSB 032908 but they couldnt verify the problem and told me that next time it happens to bring it in without resetting the codes. Well it happened again today almost a month later. I'm taking the vehicle to a local dealership other than the initial one as towing charges would be outrages. I hope Toyota can get his corrected for others regardless if you have the codes or not it should be a mandatory notice for all Toyota Tundra owners so you do not get stranded far from a dealership or eventually have that issue as it is provided only if you have up to 150k miles or 10years from when the vehicle was purchased.

car   Vehicle Speed Control problem 5
Failure Date: 10/01/2014

Toyota replaced my accelerator pedal back when they had cars that would unintentionally accelerate. Nothing had been proven wrong with my pedal, there were no symptoms. However, Tundra was doing a nationwide recall in the name of safety concerns. When the car was returned to me, the pedal was just floppy and sensitive as could be. The car would just launch itself forward. Hitting bumps on the road caused the car to accelerate. This recall was done at 28k miles. Now at 65k miles, with my family in the car. I was at a stop light and went to accelerate. There was no friction or pedal feel whatsoever, the car accelerated and thank god due to rain, instead of being propelled, I skid forward about a foot. There was a massive amount of sensitivity and pedal feel was gone. ***this on the supposed "fixed" pedal. I took the car to Toyota dealership in gainesville, gatorland Toyota where the vehicle was purchased. They tested the car and because they couldn't reproduce the problem, they stated they would do nothing about it. Not even replace the pedal again. There are plenty of Toyota owners on the internet complaining that things are still wrong with the accelerator pedals and nothing is being done about it. Toyota has vehicles on the road that could potentially launch themselves and they are doing nothing about it. Toyota case number: 1409261370.

car   Vehicle Speed Control problem 6
Failure Date: 01/13/2013

I started my truck up yesterday just randomly to go to the store. As soon as I started it a bunch of warning lights went off. The check engine light was on, the 4wd lo light was blinking, the vsc off light was blinking, and the traction control light was on. I then turned the vehicle off and let it sit for a few minutes. I turned the truck back on and the same warning lights were still on. I then pulled out of my driveway to go to a friends house who has a little computer that tells you what errors are going off when your check engine light is on like an autobody. As I pulled onto the main road and pressed on the accelerator the truck would barely go. The engine sounded like it usually does but the truck would hardly accelerate. When I finally got to my friends house he plugged the computer in and it gave me an error code of p2440. Once I looked more into it I found that it was the air induction pump that was malfunctioning. Further research online I found thousands of people have had the same problem with Tundra's with mileage between 40k and 60k. My biggest concern is why the vehicle is not accelerating like it supposed to. Many other people have the same concern. That is a huge safety hazard to me. What would happen if that would just all of a sudden shut my engine down to the slow crawl that it is doing if I am on a turnpike in heavy traffic. I would believe that there would definitely be an accident which I am sure it has happened before. I am just wondering if there is anything that can be done or maybe something that has already been done. Like a recall that I am not aware of.

Failure Date: 11/15/2012

The contact owns a 2007 Toyota Tundra. The contact was stopped at a traffic stop when the vehicle became resistant to acceleration attempts. The vsc light illuminated on the instrument panel and the contact shut the engine off. He then restarted the vehicle and performed a self diagnostic. The failure codes indicated that the secondary air injection system had failed. The vehicle was not taken to the dealer for diagnostic testing. The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 67,000.

Truck wouldn't accelerate when pulling out in traffic. Will not reach safe speed for freeway commute.

car   Vehicle Speed Control problem 9
Failure Date: 03/15/2012

This is a recurring problem. Initially, my truck was taken to a Toyota dealer service center on 3/15/2012 to an issue with my check engine light, slip indicator light, 4-wheel drive (4lo), vsc off all came on, sluggish acceleration/loss of acceleration occurred when driven & my gas mileage/fuel efficiency decreased (my truck appeared to 'run rich'). Initially the warning/indicator lights would occasionally stay on when the truck was started, other times they would not. Eventually, they just stayed on whenever the truck was started. When serviced, I was told that the issue was covered by my warranty & the secondary air switching valve was replaced which should have fixed the issue. Just over a year later, 3/19/2013, the same issue has occurred after being told the problem was fixed! the mileage that this occurred at was around 44,000. The problem was presenting in the same way - loss of acceleration/sluggish acceleration (extremely dangerous not to have acceleration while traveling on a highway/interstate), the same warning/indicator lights came on & the gas mileage/fuel efficiency decreased because the truck is 'running rich' again. Took it to a Honda dealership service center to make sure I would be able to drive home. The service technician gave the error code of p2440 which is an error code for the air intake pump. Honda dealership was unable to fix the problem because of the make of truck. Took the vehicle to the same dealership where this problem was initially diagnosed & 'fixed' the first time. Have been told by the service technician that the issue is the same problem as last time. However, this technician has informed me that the reason this problem has occurred yet again, is because there is a passenger side & a driver side part. The one replaced last year was the passenger side. This time, it's the drivers side that needs to be replaced.

Failure Date: 06/29/2011

After the dealer completed the accelerator recall, my truck now has a slight stall when taking off and if there is any roughness in driving surface, the truck does this lurching/acceleration at each bump. It's almost like when they reprogrammed the accelerator, they made it too sensitive. I wasn't having a problem with the pedal prior to their "fix" but they forced me to have the "repair" done.

car   Vehicle Speed Control problem 11
Failure Date: 05/15/2010

Water in the air induction pumps causing engine to shut down and have no power at speed. Engine lights come on and truck is disabled or hobbled with low speed only. This has been documented as a common problem with Tundra 2007-2008 owners.

Failure Date: 05/05/2010

The contact owns a 2007 Toyota Tundra. He stated that on may 5, 2010, while driving at 70 mph the vehicle would not stop and he had to swerve to prevent crashing into the vehicle in front. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealership and was tested but the failure could not be duplicated. The failure mileage was approximately 102,000. The current mileage was approximately 108,000.

car   Vehicle Speed Control problem 13
Failure Date: 04/04/2010

Left home to go to work. Interstate is approximately 1/2 mile from house. While attempting to merge on freeway several dash warning lights appeared on my 2007 Toyota Tundra. Truck stopped accelerating on the merge and I was almost rear ended by an eighteen wheeler. Took my Tundra to the dealer service department and was told I had an issue with my emission air induction pumps. Service tech told me that the main computer put my truck into a "limp" mode thus preventing me to complete the acceleration. He also stated that he couldn't give me a reason why Toyota has programmed the computer to fail into limp mode when the problem would not hurt the truck during normal acceleration. After researching the web, I discovered many 2007 to 2010 Toyota Tundra owners have experienced the same issue. Restricting a vehicle to perform up to standards puts the driver in a very dangerous situation. Especially when the "limp" mode has no good reason other than to get the owner into the dealer service department!.

Failure Date: 03/20/2010

I own a 2007 Toyota Tundra and had the gas pedal fixed last week under the recall. Since the repair my gas pedal is super sensitive to pressure. The friction to push the pedal down is considerably less and causes the truck to lunge as I accelerate unevenly. It is most noticeable on a bumpy road when the pressure from my foot is impossible to maintain at an even pressure. I contacted the dealer and was told that thousands have been repaired and no one has ever complained about this. I have spent the last several hours searching the internet for similar stories and found a couple. In my opinion this is more serious than before the so called fix. I want this fixed and do not seem to be getting anywhere until more people come forward.

Failure Date: 03/02/2010

No official notification of pedal failure on my affective 2007 Toyota Tundra. I thought that companies were required by law to supply official notification sent to you for a safety recall. I also had another recall for driveshaft separation that this VIN was also included, but was told by local dealer that it wasn't.

Failure Date: 02/24/2010

I had my 2007 Tundra into texas Toyota for warranty work. They installed the "recall" fix. ( I never had any trouble before the "recall fix") since the "fix," I have had 1 acceleration when I took my foot off the accelerator, and many short burst while I was driving.

Failure Date: 02/12/2010

I took my 2007 Tundra for a modification of the pedal to Toyota. On the date below. I am concern about the way the pedal is working. Every time the truck bounces or hits a bump, my truck accelerates, because of the sensitivity of the pedal. It did not do that before. I am in the process of taking it back. As soon as I can take some time off of work again. I just thought you might want to know how the modification is working on my Tundra. Thank you for your time.

07 Toyota Tundra recall - received notice in October - still no solution from Toyota.

car   Vehicle Speed Control problem 21
Failure Date: 01/23/2009

The contact owns a 2007 Toyota Tundra. While driving approximately 35 mph on a sandy road, the accelerator pedal extended to the floor without assistance. Suddenly, the vehicle accelerated aggressively and forcefully at 70 mph. When the brake pedal was depressed, there was no response. The contact shut off the ignition while the vehicle was in operation in order to come to a complete stop. The driver inspected the vehicle and started the ignition. The vehicle resumed to normal operation. The failure occurred without warning. The vehicle was taken to two different authorized dealers for inspection, but they could not duplicate the failures. The VIN was unknown. The failure mileage was 28,400 and current mileage was 28,800.

Failure Date: 06/01/2008

Have noted intermittent instances of surging acceleration from a stop, and at highway speeds under load. Occurs 5-10 times a week. Started at about 8k miles. Dealer "says" unable to duplicate. Frequency increasing as mileage increases. Received recall notice in mail last week. Went over 36,000 miles two weeks ago. Recall plus surging makes one question safety of Tundra.

car   Vehicle Speed Control problem 24
Failure Date: 03/15/2007

I just noticed others had complaints about this issue too on your site. I brought it to the attention of the dealer and they had no fix except to remove one or the other although the standard clip does not work well with their mudder mats. I was entering the highway from the ramp and pressed down to accelerate to move into traffic and the truck accelerated as hard and fast as it could. I found myself having to weave through traffic like I was in a nascar race. When I finally found a clear path to the shoulder I swerved onto it and shut the truck off. It would not slow down and I could not shift into neutral. I had to be going about 60 at the top of the onramp and well over 100, probably faster, when I finally was able to shut it off. I got out of the truck to take a break and calm down and upon returning to the truck I noticed that the "mudder mats" I bought from a Toyota site slipped forward enough to wedge itself under the gas pedal. I stay aware of the position of the mat more frequently now and keep it slid back but there is no restraint for it that will go thru both the floor liner that protects more of the floor area and the mudder mat on top of it. I bought both at the Tundra parts site. I hope that there will be some warning for others made big and dramatic enough to bring attention to this problem to avoid having this happen to another. I was very lucky to have survived this.

Failure Date: 01/01/2007

My 2007 Toyota Tundra hesitates when you are stopped at a light making a turn or slowly rolling around a corner and making a sharp turn. No matter how much gas is given it retards it self and then lurch once the wheels start to straiten up. I was told it is a computer issue due to the antislip features. But it is gross over correction at best. And dangerous for sure.
