What is wrong with my Tundra

Asked by Tundraguy253 Mar 04, 2018 at 04:22 PM about the 2013 Toyota Tundra Grade CrewMax 5.7L 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So when I accelerate or turn a corner the little yellow dash light comes on and
my truck loses power and the gas pedal becomes unresponsive. After I let off
the gas and wait a second the light goes out and then the truck takes off
again. I don’t know what the heck is going on. 2013 Tundra limited 5.7 4wd

I am guessing your truck is going into limp mode due to some sort of serious problem. Have the engine codes scanned.

Have you checked the oil level?

I’m having very similar issues with a truck I just purchased! It’s only happens when I use the right turn signal, but the reverse light flashes with the signal and I loose power. I am new to Toyota’s so any help would be great! I will start checking all the wheel sensors and battery connections for loose or broken wires. Anything else I should know about this truck as far as future issues? It’s a 2012 Tacoma with the 2.7L and 137K miles.

Bobby ask this question in a new thread please, use the Ask a Question link, thanks.

There is a sensor apparently that gets thrown out of whack if you put a lift on your truck or bigger tires and wheels. There's some washer mod you can do to fix this apparently that's underneath the plastic parts by your shifter. I have a 3 inch lift bigger wheels and tires and when I go around a sharp turn every once in awhile off of Highway or something it beeps traction control thing goes off and my brakes start to like grind
