With the part shortages, I wouldn’t be shocked if they dropped the sensor altogether. Sucks if so for the woodland buyers, because Toyota overreacted when they say it’s not compatible.I get Toyota says it’s not compatible, but I’m wondering if they even install the sensor when building the car. Like does the car include the sensor on it. Tough to really find out unless someone pulled the bumper.
Did you ever figure out if the sensor is still there and can be enabled? or not there at all? Very curious as I am likely purchasing a woodland but don't the hitch (the factory one anyways...).From further research, the sensor is disabled at the factory when they install the hitch. I'm going to call the techs and see if this is just a setting that can be turned on or if the sensors are installed at all.
@Pdxpdx Do you have any info on the air shock? Or is there a thread on this? There seems to be a question about whether AWD Siennas can use air bags on the rear shocks.I’m lazy so paid a mechanic 50 dollars to do it during an suspension air shock install. Really easy though. It’s just 6 bolts.

Damn- that sucks. Wonder how hard it would be to install an oem sensor and if all you’d need to do is hook it up or if you’d also need to have Toyota service go in and turn the option onIt is confirmed that the factory hitch = kick sensor delete. There is no sensor installed.
