Yes, it’s safety functions make it pertinent recall precedence?? Why isn’t there a recall in this?I have read many forums asking about this issue. If it was a known issue, why wasn't it recalled and corrected? Why does it have to be under warranty to have it fixed for free?
God bless you, Ron! The butter knife trick worked. I was just about to shell out money for a replacement. I couldn't get the knife tip between the outer casing and the touch screen. I ended up using the handle end of the knife to press the add button getting as close as I could to the bottom of the button. It took several seconds but it worked. Thank you, Ron, for posting this.I can't believe Toyota has not address this, Of course I didn't even notice the issue until it was out of warranty, I've always loved Toyotas and the customer service, but if they don't do a recall or something this will be my last Toyota. Anyways I have the 2014.5 Toyota Camry, bought a new phone yesterday and had no way to pair it. So on a whim, I took a butter knife out to my car and turned the car on and went to the area where I would add a Bluetooth device. I slid the knife down in-between the touch screen and the outer casing and sort of applied pressure with the knife right under the add button about 1 inch and it activated the add button and I was able to add a new Bluetooth phone. Its not the ideal way that the touch screen should work but I was able to do what I needed. Its a shame that Toyota will not own this problem and fix it.. Ron Ronsu@aol.com
