You may want to check out the Toyota 4-Runner Forum. There are others with 2003 4-Runner (and older) who have reported that they are able to program their Scan Gauge II to read transmission fluid temperatures with their 4-Runners. Keep in mind that is not always a built in function of the Scan Gauge to read this code, but requires that the user program in the correct information that allows the transmission fluid temperature sensor to be read.

Scan Gauge

Our 2003 and 2006 Ford V-10 chassis motorhomes had a 3 position temp gauge, cold, normal, hot, no advance warning of increasing temps. I used the scanGauge to supplement plus it would give me timing info based on gas and other inputs. I believe I also had trans temps. My Jeep now has most of the info built into the dash.
