The cable can be used with the iPhone connected but not without. It put us in the worse part of Chicago in the dark. The manufacturer was notified of the failure and provided case number: 1810040023. . They should issue a recall on all radios for anyone having this problem and make it good for 10 years after date of first sale. My problem is whenever my phone is connected via BlueTooth, the EnTune system keeps power cycling. Rather, it seems pretty random — which makes it nearly impossible to troubleshoot.
Still having issues though and need to take it back for further evaluation. If there was no spark at this point, the clamp was connected. The air bags and Toyota safety sense system failed to activate. We paid for a car that works! The situation has only gotten worse, with the screen totally freezing for several minutes before going black and rebooting. I thought it was due to a low car battery but since coming across this site I am less hopeful. It has done it at least 20 times these past two days.
No luck with finding a toggle. Called toyota and they are willing to pay 50% of a cost to replace the unit. Still locked up after that, will come on again after about 10 mins. My initial reaction was to brake however I did not. The contact was unsure if a police report was filed. From the beginning I have experienced Bluetooth connection Issues. The problem was the clock which was spring driven, but was wound up electrically every five minutes or so.
The following day, the entire Entune system crashed- it starts and stops and gives the blue screen with a loading bar until it completely shuts off and the screen goes black. Some are round, steel looking. Could be the shaft seal is leaking and has oiled the clutch and it is slipping. The approximate failure mileage was 200,000. I updated firmware — no change. I took my truck to a mechanic who said it had nothing to do with fuses, rather my stereo was just blown.
I subscribed to Entune and downloaded the App to my phone. Today it froze and rebooted twice while on the way to work, both times taking more than 5 minutes from the start of the freeze to when it rebooted. Its important to remember that most radios have their own fuse which is found at the back of the radio. Toyota would not stand behind it. The truck's approximate mileage was 20k. I own a 2014 Tacoma.
Hook up about 2 feet of clear tubing as shown in the picture below. Make a series of eight near- stops from 6. My nav system regularly locks up and reboots. Will get a signed statement before warranty runs out for the life of the car!! I ripped out crap Panasonic and put in Blaupunkt for half the price and it works better combined with smart phone. Just before you are ready to start bleeding the brakes, remove the vice grips from the brake line so the fluid can travel down the line and out of the new calipers.
Read elsewhere to take it in to a dealer for an Entune software update. One month off of the lot, my new Highlander is doing the same thing. If anyone has any idea on how to fix this issue, please post it. Radio was changed once within the first year, worked fine for awhile and has started again. Sometimes a recently downloaded app will conflict with everything, sometimes a restart after that app fixes it, sometime not. I will make appointment to go dealership.
So I have a 2016 t4r that I got maybe one month ago. However, in late April it was rebooting multiple times on my twenty minute drive into work. Tension pulley also seized completely and bearing seized. I bought this Toyota over a Ford Explorer hoping for reliability. I have a Galaxy S5, and I also cannot send or receive message through entune with my phone.
For others, only the best will suffice. There was a mouse nest inside the fuse box and they had chewed thru my wires. Over and over and over. I would look this up but Toyota doesn't let you download the owners manual unless you are an owner. I thought it was just me.
