    I have the same problem. When I try to enable the 4WD, the lights flash like they are supposed to, but they just keep flashing and it never engages. What could be causing this?

When putting 4wd in gear, put the vehicle in reverse, then a forward gear and the system should engage fine. The flashing should stop and it will be in 4WD. I had the same problem but it's an old trick that works with 4WDs. Good luck.

Blinking light means that the unit is trying to engage.

High pitch noise from under hood when i start my 2005 toyota 4 runner. The noise stops after about 30 seconds. sounds like a turbo charger spooling up but i dont have one.

You could remove the serpentine belt and see if the noise continues, then check each component one at a time.
You describe a slipping belt because the alternator pulls hard for the first few seconds after you start the engine.

My 2004 toyota 4-runner rear window heater and wipers stopped working

If they stopped at the same time,...Probably a bad fuse. If not, follow wires. Wire harness may have come unattached.
If at different times, Your warrentee probably just ended.
