#23 of 30 4 WD disengagement
Dec 21, 2012 (11:51 pm)
I have a 2000 4-runner. Recently it has been very difficult to get it out of 4WD Hi. There is a button on the side of the 2/4 WD Hi lever. When I push the button while in the 2WD Hi position, the indicator lights flash. Does this mean that the transaxial is in a 4 WD unlocked position or in a 4 WD on demand feature. I was in the mountains recently and pushed the button while moving in 2 WD Hi on snow covered road. The indicator lights flashed. When I released the button, the tranaxial would not come out of 4WD. Even with repeated movement of the level to the 4WD Hi and back to 2WD Hi position. After the truck sat all day in subfreezing conditions, I still could not get it out for a considerable distance (several miles) Finally, I stopped for about twenty minutes and finally got it to release. I took it into the shop and they replaced three tranaxial switches. It now goes into 4WD HI immediately when the lever is moved (indicator lights solid) but comes out only after driving a considerable distance(a couple hundred feet or so) and then unlocks with a bang. I am on hard pavement when this is happening. If I press the button in 2 WD Hi, the tranaxial appears to go into 4WD the indicator lights flash but it won't release when the button is released. Before I took it in, it wasn't locking in completely even with movement of the lever to the 4WD Hi position. The shop foreman seemed to think that it was working Ok but said the actuators may be getting weak or worn. He seemed to be unfamilar with the partial 4 WD feature while in the 2 WD Hi position. Hope that you can help or clarify the 4 WD operation. I have owned this vehicle for 9 years and used it a lot in 4 WD while in snow but only recently have had difficulty coming out of 4 WD.
#25 of 30 4Hi and Sharp Turning - Wheels feel 'locked'
Mar 07, 2013 (4:17 pm)
Toyota 4Runner, SR5, 2013:
How come, when I am in 4Hi, my wheels feel kind of 'locked' when I am turning in, or backing in to a parking space, with my front wheels cut to the right or left?
This is the same feel I used to get out of my Pathfinder when going into 4WD with a differential lock. I used to like the Pathfinder's AWD because the computer would simply be responsible for ensuring distribution of power to the wheels with traction and the differentials were never locked in this mode. Is there any way to set the various control options on the 4Runner 2013 to achieve this?

#27 of 30 Transmission cranck noise

Hi! I have an incredible nice 2004 SR5 4X4 4 speed auto and I love it.
The thing is that when I go from reverse to drive or to drive to reverse, it sounds like a crank noise and you can feel how the transmission connects the rear axle. During driving I have not a single problem or noise. It works really good.
Thanks in advance!!!!

Good day everyone, I'm experiencing a problem right now with my 2000 toyota 4runner automatic transmission, I switched to 'H4L' the 4wd indication light came up on the instrument cluster(dash bord) then when I switched back to the 'H2.H4' the light wont stop blinking, but I was able to run over 120Kpm for hours with no problem, but the 4wd indicator light showing the 4 tires and a circle in d middle wont stop blinking for 3days now. Please any help in getting it to stop blinking?
