Question about 2002 Toyota 4Runner
I live in the mountains and need 4 wheel drive off and on. My truck never seems to want to disengage the 4 wheel drive. Sometimes I have to drive 20 miles or more before it disengages. It goes in no problem, but when I push the button to take it out, the 4 wheel indicator lights flash for a long time. I never put it in or take it out over 50 mph so thats not the problem.
The light blinks to alert you that a problem exists in the control module for the 4X4, contact expert Toyota Ed he is the service manager of a Toyota dealer, he knows his stuff

Neal, it may not be the right front axle. I thought I had the same problem with 97 4Runner but it turned out to be the right rear axle bearing. Even the technican thought the niose was coming from the right front axle when he test drove it with me. Seems those rear bearings go out if you do a lot of towing with the truck. Cost about $ 400.00 to replace make sure they replace the ABS sensor collar and replace the axle breather tube vent ( they get plugged and when they replace the bearing , they have to replace the seal in the axle also and mine leaked after because of a plugged axle vent.

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

Hi angelsr. Begin by checking the transmission fluid level. It will operate best when it is at the high end of the full range. Once you have checked that and possibly added fluid to the transmission, drive it for 5 miles and then go into 4H. IF it still isn't working properly chances are that the bands on the transmission are loose. Then drive to an AAMCO transmission shop or other transmission shop and have your transmission serviced.
