1999 Rav4 has a 2-Wheel drive option. If you have 4-Wheel drive (check with dealer) there is no need to set it to 4-Wheel drive as the 4-Wheel drive mode is controled by the Powertrain Control Module (On-Board Computer) as needed.
IN THIS MODEL YOU HAVE THE OPTION TO CHANGE TRANSMISSION PERFORMANCE FROM
POWER TO NORMAL.
WHEN PRESSED ON (GREEN LIGHT ON ) THE SHIFT PATERN CHANGES , LATER SHIFT TO CHANGE TORQUE BAND , GREATER PERFORMANCE.
WHEN DEPRESSED THIS MODE CHANGES TO NORMAL SHIFTING PATERN ALLOWING YOU TO DRIVE YOURS VEHICLE IN A MORE ECONOMICAL. WAY.
SHIFTING CHANCES SOONER.. INTURN USING LESS ENERGY
THERE IS A TRADE OFF WITH HAVING GET UP AND GO OR TO SAVE MONEY ON FUEL
YOU HAVE A CHOICE.
TO TRUELY TEST GAS MILEAGE DRIVE VEHICLE ON FULL TANK ( RECORD THE AMOUNT OF FUEL YOU ADDED.) THEN RESET TRIP ODOMETER. OR WRITE DOWN KM/ML.
DO THIS FOR POWER MODE ( ONE FULL TANK)
DO THIS FOR NORMAL TRANSMODE(DEPRESSED)
REGULAR MAINTANCE IS KEY ( OIL CHANCE , TUNE UPS( SPARK PLUGS , EFI CLEANERS.AIR TRANS FLUSH.
FROM MY EXPERIENCE I ALWAYS BUY MY FUEL AT SAME STORE.
GOOD LUCK HOPE THIS HELPS
