2008 Sequoia 4wd - lights flash when 4wd button is pressed.

Customer Question

2008 Sequoia 4wd - lights flash when 4wd button is pressed.
JA: Just to clarify, can you tell me which light it is? And does it blink first, then stay on steady?
Customer: Yes. First there is a short delay (1-2 seconds), then the diff lock light flashes about 4-5 times, then the 4wd light flashes. Have to turn engine off to reset. Drives fine, but no 4wd.
JA: Are you fixing your Sequoia yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Took it to Wesley Chapel Toyota this morning. The tech said the switch on the dash board needs to be replaced - $485. Then he can troubleshoot from there. I say of the switch is bad, why does it even try to go into 4wd?
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Guess not.

If you push just the four-wheel-drive switch do the four green lights light up indicating its in 4wdrive without hitting the center differential lock button?
