Have Toyota Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, I used to work at the Toyota dealership and I have seen this problem many times. This system uses an electric actuator to put the front differential into gear. You can remove the front actuator and move it manually if needed. The computer has to see that the front differential in not engaged in order to take out of 4x4. When these are not used very often the tend to get locked up.
