Look at gear oil levels, make sure you don't have to lock out side tire hubs on font center wheels, Another tip is go to the book and look for a transfer case relay, if you have an electric switch, by pass it, hook both with "U" wire or look for fuses or reboot computer, by disconnecting negative on Battery with ignition key ON and engine NOT RUNNING, good luck

1997 toyota tacoma will not go into 4 wheel drive


Has the transfer case ever been serviced? The fluid should be changed every 30,000 miles, if not the works can stick and cause engagement problems. Make sure the vacuum to the front hubs is available, if the front hubs are not locking the front drive shaft will turn but no Front wheel lock up and no 4 wheel drive is available.

I have a 2003 Tacoma 4x4 extra cab w/v6 & manual transmission. The truck has 71k and a new frame. Last February the four wheel drive was working fine when I took it out to turn around in a small space...


I had the same problem on a 1996 Tacoma 4x4 and the trouble was the solenoid valves on the inner fender liner drivers side. It is an electrically controlled vacuum switch that controls the switch on the transfer case. Not sure if yours is the same ?

I have a 2000 4wd tacoma with manual locking hubs and the 4wd does not seem to be engaging after locking the hubs and shifting the lever into 4 hi or 4 low


Sounds like one of your hubs is sticking and not engaging. You can check them by engaging the hubs and the transfer case and jacking up each front wheel independently if it doesn't spin your good, if it does you found your problem. As far as fixing a hub goes, it may be just dry and need some grease, or there are some very good aftermarket hubs available from Warn.
Hope this helps
