Btw, Oemvehicleparts told me that they got 6 orders for the switch and was able to fulfill one of them - hope it's one of us on here LOL

He mentioned that if it is discontinued Lexus would have cancelled them and showed as NLA. But they are showed as back order with no ETA

Hopefully this 020 isn't as scare as the switch is. At least this Japanese supplier seems to have a quantity. In addition...it being used in the Prado as well helps.

EDIT: I sent an inquiry off to Motor Heads Japan about availability of the Prado switch. For those that are interested in that path they may have a better price and their shipping costs are low. I'm not sure if this is correct or not but I thought I read in one of the RU threads that MTS and Crawl aren't available on the Prado in Japan so it might be one of those parts that isn't available from this vendor.

Now the Prado gets a stock locker option as well in other markets but some interesting use info about MTS here.

Looks like they get one more MTS mode "Rock and Dirt". Also the comment about sand... I'd definitely say it is worth a shot there.

https://practicalmotoring.com.au/4x4...-systems-work/

"The Kakadu also has MTS is Multi-Terrain Select, Toyota’s adaptive terrain system. Modes are Rock and Dirt, Rock, Mogul, Loose Rock and Mud/Sand."

"Each of these modes remap the brake traction control, stability control, throttle sensitivity and gearshift points to optimise the vehicle for a specific terrain."

I got the same response from them today. Might be willing to let it ride with them.

Once proven it works I think the 040 MTS for the '14+ might be a scarce one too.

The prado switch is really cheap. It's interesting that Prado oversea can have both DAC and CC

I think what I read is that the DAC button no longer works after cutting over to CC... somewhere buried in that 139 page RU thread.... we still have a ways to go to make this thread that long though :-)

I wonder if CC trickles down the line for '19 and MTS finally makes appearance in US models?

Looks like no one here had ordered 040 ECU except me at this point Hopefully I won't turn my wife's '14 GX became a monster truck or a brick of metal, and ended up in divorce court

With the way this is going on parts availability you may hold the only 040 in general parts circulation. :-)

The guy from OEMvehicleparts.com told me they were only able to fulfill 1 of 6 orders for 60070 that came in on the same day but that I should continue waiting b/c Lexus hadn't canceled the order from their side yet.

Looks like this project may have rendered that switch set "unobtanium"... #DOH

@Acrad35751 To get the CC on a 15 premium, is a calibration necessary?
I think you mentioned the DAC file has to be erased and then do a calibration for CC. Is this correct?

I just plugged in the new switch but CC hasn't got to work. Haven't done the calibration yet and It is still the DAC light on the dash when I start the car.

cicio: Correct.. You will need to do the reset and calibration for CC to go live. Are you doing with Techstream or the OBD method?

Also did you take any pictures or remember if you saw the Blue and Black wires while you were under there?

If one doesn't find these wires the existing harness wouldn't support the switch without custom wiring. There is a green wire too used but it's one of those other in the mix.
