Question about 2004 Toyota Tacoma
More often than not, inactivity is the number one cause for your issues, and this is a common issue.
What we do here, when this situation is presented to us, is to raise the vehicle up on a vehicle hoist, put the vehicle in 4WD, and we tap on the back side of the transfer case with a large rubber mallet. The tapping action frees off the internal motor, which is usually seized. This is not a critical failure, it is just 'stuck'. Tapping on the transfer case usually unsticks the transfer motor.
Note: Please do NOT attempt this without a vehicle hoist. Using jackstands, aor any other means of raising the vehicle can and will be DANGEROUS to the person tapping on the transfer case.
