    Default Tundra may be immobilized

    Hi Prof. I own a 2010 Crew Max. 5.7 litre. Iíve just recently installed a new battery. The command start acted up once since I installed the new battery. It missed on the first try but automatically retried and started on the second attempt. The reason I had the battery changed was that the truck seemed sluggish when starting almost as if the battery was weak. Yesterday the lights on my side view mirrors were flashing and there is a clunking sound coming from under the hood. The truck wonít start and it looks like the vehicle immobilization function has kicked in. Any recommendations?

    Sounds like a trip to the dealer is the best course of action.

    have you checked if your alternator is working optimally? they could also be a problem with the key starter, have an electrician check it out
