I have a 2009 Tundra 300 I got in 2010 as a brand new leftover model. I had random trouble with the RER not working last season, the dealer replaced the whole left side control switch housing and it was better but not solved.
I went out for my first ride of the season 3 days ago and it started up fine but no reverse. The next day it was hard to start then only went a few hundred meters sputtering and stalling until it died. I shot some WD-40 in the switch housing before this ride in hopes of clearing out any moisture that was possibly messing with the RER. I also adjusted the idle in hopes that would fix the RER. The plug was was black so I put a new one in but it didn't help.
Today I replaced both fuses, took the switch housing apart and cleaned, checked the kill switch and emergency tether switch - all OK. I still am getting no spark at all. Lights etc work fine and starter is strong but no spark when I put the plug against the engine head. Arghghghgh!!
Any ideas?? I assume my idle is now not adjusted perfectly but doubt that would cause no spark. It is now 2 degrees above freezing and raining so I am quitting for the nihgt.
FYI - I drained the old gas a few weeks ago and added stabilizer and fuel line antifreeze along with a new plug. I have the RER fix update from the 2006 RF chassis that says to put dielectric grease in a spot inside the switch housing and then relocate some wires. I did the grease things but my wiring isn't exactly the same so I didn't do that part.
I you have any suggestions I am open to ideas. I'm bringing it to a friend's garage tomorrow so I can work on it out of the rain but have no idea what else to try. FYI my dealer hasn't been the most reliable in the past and I really don't want to take it to them, especially due to the $89/hour shop rate.
