    Introduction
    Some customers may report a M.I.L. “ON†condition that occurs after operating the vehicle for
    extended times in “Ready ON†mode with the transaxle in the Park position.
    The following Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) may be found: P0125 “Insufficient Coolant Temperature
    for Closed Loop Fuel Controlâ€. The Engine Control Module (ECM) (SAE term: Powertrain Control
    Module/PCM) logic has been modified to improve this condition. Use the following repair procedure
    for applicable vehicles.

    Note that subject TSB T-SB-0088-08 requires ECM calibration ID 34705400 to be uploaded to the ECM for 2004-2005 models. Prior to this TSB being released, I had seen TSB EG047-04 which related to an engine no-start or low power situation (file attached below.) That TSB required ECM calibration ID 34705100 to be uploaded to the ECM.

    My question relates to ECM calibration IDs 34705200 and 34705300. Has anyone seen a TSB or other technical documentation that describes what those firmware changes were intended to correct?

    The reason that I've been looking at powertrain-related TSBs is because I noticed some power surging when driving my 2004 (64K miles) on a trip to Palm Springs earlier this week. No warning lights.

    Ambient temps were moderate in the early evening, I had the air conditioning off. The surging got to the point where I was thinking about where I could safely pull over on I-10 in case the car stalled. However, the drivetrain then resumed normal behavior and I continued my trip without further incident.

    Pray excuse me for reviving so old a thread. Is this still, perhaps, a relevant issue?

    I ask because I continue to get an MIL/CEL for P0125 despite having replaced the thermostat just 3 weeks ago. Perhaps the sensor is bad, but wouldn't it have come back sooner, if that was the case? Furthermore, I typically notice the MIL return in the morning after the car has been in READY- Park for 8+ hours (it's my motorhome).

    Replacing the sensor shouldn't be too much of a hassle, but Autozone wanted $70. I haven't checked prices online yet

    Not all Techstream installations are capable of updating ECU, and personally, I would not try and do this myself. Rather I'd take it to Toyota, especially if there was still an active TSB out for the issue you're having. That way, if the car gets bricked it is Toyota's problem to fix rather than yours. The other thing to consider, it is very unlikely Toyota would have issues updating the ECU. On the other hand, chances are higher that you might brick the ECU given you will be using an uncertified cable and software.

    I guess the other option is to secure another ECU with the required level of calibration ID and install that.
