    Great. Glad to hear that you are up and running again.

    Good talking to you again. Shame I could not help better...

    Y'see, when you apply a rating on the Premium services, the interaction between you and me were terminated. FixYa only allows you to interact with one "expert" at a time.

    Stupid system.

    Sorry I could not help you better...

I posted the solution. the tech tapped on the actuator located on the differential and it started working again. seems it was hanging up. the tech said that it should eventually replaced as it is liable to do it again.

I was towing a heavy load with my 94 4runner. i put it in 4wd, heard a strange moan sound, very quickly took it out of 4wd. now i have no reverse

Not sure if the 4runner requires you to stop before engaging 4wd or not. Need some more information on your vehicle, auto/manual, speed when you engaged 4wd.

I would first check the wires on the transfer case for possible damage at the 2wd/4wd switch.

You probably have an issue with the A.D.D. (Auto Disconnect Device) on the front axle. That is what lights up the light. I'd need to know the year to get you better info. If it is newer, check the 4WD fuse under the dash. But, in any case, if it IS in 4WD, the vehicle will make tire noises on a real tight turn, and it will lurch on the same tight turn, like it is trying to drill itself into the street. 4Runners do not have a viscous coupling, in 4wd, all 4 wheels run the same RPM.
