Question about 2002 Toyota Tacoma
The problem started with the 4X4 engaging when it felt like it. So I pulled the fuse. About a week ago I needed the 4X4 and put the fuse back in to find the actuator would make noise but no matter what I did I could not get it into 4X4. I have tested the switch and looked at all the wires under the truck and could not find anything showing obvious failure what should I do?
Glad to provide you with my assistance.
It is my opinion that the shift motor/actuator inside the transfer case is compromised. I have observed this several times. The shift motor has contacts that actuate the front axle disconnect device, as well as engageing the 2-4WD modes. If all the wires are good, and all the connectors are clean, the remaining item will be replacemnt of the transfer case shift motor, this would be the solution.
Hope this help you, and thank you for choosing FixYa.
