Thank you for trusting Just Answer with your Toyota question. When you select 4wd, does anything happen? You stayed no lights, but does it beep or anything?

no beeping, we put the truck up in the air , checked the fuses, put in gear and let it go . no action from the front wheels. we believe it might be the actuator but would like to know how to test it. brian

Lets try to narrow things down a little here. Have you tried 4 lo range? When in 4 wd with the wheels raised, did you check to see if the front driveline was turning.
