Customer Question
Check engine light is...

Check engine light is on. Code reported as a failure of the deceleration sensor It is a 2006 Tundra, from searching on the internet, it appears as if this model has no deceleration sensor at all

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

Check Engine Light (CEL) stays on until I clear it by pulling the ECU fuse. After 5 trips, the CEL comes back on. Same code

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

I have not tried anything beyond clearing the code. Since I cannot find the sensor, I've been unable to replace it

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

I don't think so

Thanks for posting , the deceleration sensor and yaw rate sensor are usually as one unit, I can look up the location for you, do you have the specific code number when it was scanned?

was any work done recently to the suspension, brakes or any other part of the traction control/abs system?

No work was done to suspension or brakes. Unfortunately, I do not have the error code handy, as I had it diagnosed quite some time ago. The information I have been able to find suggests that the sensors should both be located under the center console, however when I took the center console out, the bracket indicated by the photos online had no sensors attached, nor was there a wire harness in the vicinity.

Thanks for the reply

When you turn the key on do the VSC, TRAC OFF, ABS lights turn on?

Do they go off after the engine starts?

Is the check engine light on at this time?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
With the key in the on position, the ABS light comes on briefly, then off. No VSC or TRAC OFF lights are present at any time. With the engine running no lights are on other than the check engine
Toyota Mechanic: Ted Ritter, Toyota Master Tech replied 7 months ago

I​t sounds like it doesn't have skid control then therefore there is no declel or yaw rate sensor. Please visit an Autozone or othere national chain auto store like O Reilly or advance auto and have the computer scanned for diagnostic codes and return here with that information (CODE NUMBERS) and I'll be glad to help further.

another question I have is did you buy it recently or how long have you owned the truck?
