Customer Question
TOYOTA FJ CRUISER Mechanic's...

TOYOTA FJ CRUISER

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your FJ Cruiser?

07

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your FJ Cruiser yourself? What have you tried so far?

Are you a real person?

Mechanic's Assistant: Yes, I'm a bot. I make the process of talking to the mechanic more efficient and affordable by asking basic questions. Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

H 4 four wheel drive will not engage. I am able it seems to use L 4 and all the associated lights come on on the dash i.e. ABS/VSC OFF ect and the L 4 seems to function but not H 4. Vehicle has been well cared for.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? The dashboard bulbs?

Hello, and thanks for using JustAnswer, my name is ***** ***** I have been an Automotive Technician for over 15 years, and currently working at a Toyota dealership.

Are you able to pick up all 4 tires off the ground and with the FJ in drive put it into 4WD to see if the front driveshaft is turning?

this will help narrow down the problem to either the transfer case of the front diff.

Ok I have some questions as well. When you try to select 4h does the shiftier actually go into that position or it does not. Does the vehicle actually feel it is in 4l or 4h when you select that geat if it feels like it is going into 4h then could be just the indicator switch if defiantly not then your in to checking the shift linkage and or removing the transfer case and dissembling it to see what is causing this as yours is not electronically controlled.
