My A/T temp light came on and now my 2011 tundra won’t

Customer Question
My A/T temp light...

My A/T temp light came on and now my 2011 tundra won’t start

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

A/T oil temp check engine and 4 LO is blinking

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Tundra yourself? What have you tried so far?

I’ve disconnected the negative terminal for 5 minutes to try and erase the memory but there has been no change

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I was in bumper to bumper traffic a lot today however the outside temp is in the mid forties

Can you have your vehicle scanned for codes with a shop scanner this will be necessary as there are hard codes in the ECU . This is why you cannot erase them. A hard code is a major code that needs to be repaired in order to eliminate it, also depending on it's severity it can trigger the ECU to prevent the engine from running in order to prevent further damage .

Once you have a code we can proceed.

No I haven’t apparently there’s no way to check the trans fluid on a 2011 5.7 Tundra. There no dip stick
The trans temp gauge showed normal. I was able to drive it home. It won’t idle now. I’m going to have it towed to my dealer
Thanks
Toyota Mechanic: Peter Bagley, Auto Service Technician replied 7 months ago

I know there is no dipstick for a quick check but you can crack the inspection plug on the bottom of the trans pan to get enough on a Kleenex to check it's color and if it smells burnt. The only other way you can have the rest checked is by a shop scanner, it can check the temperature, as well that is the proper way to fill it by doing it at a certain temp and fill till runs out a special tool inserted in that drain hole.
