Question about 2000 Toyota Land Cruiser

Open Question

2000 Toyo Land Cruiser Center Differential and VSC OFF lights on

Condition always happens when car is started from a rest, not during driving. Car doesn't need to be totally cold. During the time the VSC and CENTER Differential OFF lights are on the car feels like it's in LOW four wheel drive. I can remove the problem by placing car in park, and pulling LOW to HIGH stick back and forth a number of times I seem to unlock the problem, and the dash lights leave and car runs in four wheel HIGH. I also notice when LOW/HIGH stick brought to LOW I don't get any indicator on dash but car runs in LOW four wheel drive. In addition, the center differential button under flash button, when pressed on, does not always post VSC OFF and Center Differential OFF lights. When the center dif button fails in any reverse or forward gear I can still get VSC and CENTER Diff lights to post when I place gear in Park. By the way I hear a click on right side near glove compartment when I push in button, regardless of dash lights lighting. I feel there is some common failure part but have not been able to find it. I have the factory manuals and after looking over wiring diagrams I think there may be a stuck switch in the transfer case but am not sure. I am hoping someone else has had this experience and can share their successful results.

SOURCE: Center Differential Lock Stuck

Yes it will, once no power is going to it it should or it could remain locked as well Give it a try . But you should have a look at the relay

1 2
3 4

that is what the pins should look lik 1 - 4 should power it

SOURCE: differetial locks for 94 land cruiser

91-97 Land Cruisers had a factory option for front and rear locking differentials. This is a seperate switch and is usually located to the left of US model Land Cruisers. The center dash button locks your transfer case differential changing your Land Cruiser from all wheel drive to four wheel drive depending if you have ABS or not this button either says ECT or Center Dif Lock. If you do not have the Front/Rear locking differential option then your Land Cruiser has open Front and Rear. Hope this answers your question.

SOURCE: 1994 c1500 4x4 front differential left side axle seal replacement

Diff does not need to be removed to change axle. If you are good at this stuff, you can figure your way through it, or get a manual as a guide (haynes etc. are OK for this stuff) Axle is held into carrier by a "c" clip so you do need to remove the cover and spider gears to get it out (not difficult) If you run into a problem, someone here will surely help!

1988 Toyota land cruiser won't go into 4wd


so this is part time 4WD and as such only works
on ICE or dirt.
not pavement free of ICE
(its not AWD) its part time.
post location, (so i can read your weather report, dig?)
or post out door temps and conditions above. failure., (im blind)

if you drive in 4wd (PT) on pavement (no ice) it will wind up.
if you keep doing that, you may destroy the transfer case is the
drive line winds up.

see diffs here

http://www.lcool.org/technical/diffs/diffs.html


your car has no center differential.
do not drive car in 4wd until you understand how top use part time
4wd, or $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
or get hurt. or others./?

Check engine light just came on with the VST OFF light. Seemed liked the transmission slipped. Thoughts before driving again?


A mechanic offered a suggestion that worked. At times the VSC light will appear with the Check Engine light automatically. I had re-fueled the evening before and it was a fuel pressure issue that triggered the Check Engine light. He recommended taking the gas cap off and replacing tightly. Problem solved!!

Rocket science at it's best..........

The check engine light along with the VSC trak light as well as the VSC off lights just came on in my 2003 Toyota land cruiser. It happened once before while on a trip down south and the dealer told me to...


Without have a diagnoses done on it you cannot pinpoint the problem, so many filters/sensors on modern vehicle any of these could cause these symptoms. I would find a local garage with diagnostic equip who should be cheaper than dealer.

Shaking with engine light and VSC Off lights turned on


If just found this on another forum:

A few days ago I started the Cruiser and had 4 indicators stay lit.
They were the CHECK ENGINE...SLIP INDICATOR..VSC TRAC..VSC OFF.
Didnt noticed any change in driving and 4-wheel drive is still working.
I removed the negative cable from the battery and the same indicator lights have NOT come back. Everything is back to normal as far as warning lights go. Should I take it in to the service center and have it checked.
Or should I wait to take it in, if it does it again?
