SOURCE: toyota rav 4

I work for Toyota, and I will be glad to provide you with the actual answer:

The RAV/4 product is available in two models, a 4WD model and a 2WD model.
The difference between the two is on the 2WD model, there is no driveshaft going under the vehicle to the rear wheels, and no rear differential. There is no "RAV/2"; both models are called RAV/4's.

There is a lot of common confusuion about how the 4WD works. It is full time 4WD. In other words, it is always in 4WD. It does not "kick in/kick out/automatically engage", or anything like that. It is 4WD all of the time. But, when I say "4WD", that is sometimes mistaken for "all wheel drive", and, in this case, the RAV/4 is not "AWD". What this means is that if you raise the RAV/4 up on a lift, and put it in gear, 1 rear and the other side front tires will spin. True "all wheel drive" would have ALL 4 wheels spinning. This is not the case with the Rav/4. What the RAV does have, making up for not having "True AWD" on the 5 speed model, however, is a switch that locks the center differential in the transfer case, which, when engaged, applies a method of "locking" the 4WD system for maximum traction, but it is still not AWD. The automatic version doe not have this ability.
The last "true AWD" vehicle for purchase was a 1970's International Scout.
If you are considering purchasing a RAV/4, that is a very good investement. They hold their value quite well, and are virtually bulletproof; I do not make any "money" off my RAV/4 customers...
Just "gas station work". Very nice cars. I hope that this helps you, please feel free to comment back with any otherr questions...Glad to be of assistance.

RE: 2002 Seqouia: Key won't turn to "on" or "start" It turns to "ACC" but that's it. Feels like it's stuck. I've tried both sets of keys. Wheels and steering...

it is either the key cylinder tumblers worn out or the housing itself. the housing has a small piece that goes into the back of the key cylinder that will break.......i have seen this problem before and it could be either one......i would take it to the dealer or a shop that you can trust that knows how to remove either one without tearing something else up......hope this will help you let me know if i were any help at all......good luck and if you need any other help let me know..........

My 2003 has the VSC light blinking and when you start the truck, it is always in 4 wheel drive. I can hit the button and take the 4 wheel drive off but the yellow/orange light for traction control keeps...

No, but the exact same thing happens to my 2003 Sequoia. I came across a recall for that problem and if you have the lucky vin# toyota will fix it. If not, you'll have to pay yourself even though it's the exact same problem. Toyota's #18003314331. Good Luck!

4 wheel drive not engaging. light on and blinking, but will not engage./

Sounds to me that your diff. actuator is bad. My 05 Sequoia was doing the same thing, except it would not come out of 4 wheel drive, I replaced the diff. actuator and everything has been fine since. It was easy to replace and not an expensive part either.

Trac light on 2002 toyota sequoia

You need to have the wheel speed sensors checked. If one is not reading the proper rPM of the wheels, it thinks that the other wheel is spinning, and the TRAC applies the brakes on that side.
A good tech with a good scan tool might be able to read the sensors, but, a Toyota tech is your best bet.

Cannot Disable the 4 wheel drive on my 2001Toyota Seqouoia

Not sure if this works with your car or not but it's worth a try.

Place in park
start motor
put foot on the brake
place car in neutral
If your car has a button marked 2wd push it. This should return you to 2wd mode
return car to park
turn off motor and remove foot from the brake.
BUT the best thing you can do is read your owners manual if you do not have one call your nearest Toyota dealer and ask for the service department and ask them how to put it back into 2wd
