Question about 1997 Toyota Tacoma
When it gets engaged only one tire spins... the rear passenger side iv tried playing around with it switching it back n forth from high to low but does nothing. What could be the problem?

The 4x4 system has a controller,or computer,called the Body Control Module and there will be stored trouble codes.To work on a system that's electronically controlled,you have to get the codes from the system.Every trouble code has a diagnostic route to follow to resolve the faulty component.I have read about Explorers having faulty door open/closed sensors.These set a code in the Body Control Module,and in the process,the BCM inhibits 4x4 operation,causing a no 4 wheel drive complaint.There is also an electric motor on the transfer case that can fail electrically or mechanically,along with speed sensors and fork position sensors that can give trouble.

If it doesn't work from master switch then the door lock motor actuator will need to be replaced, this requires pulling the door panel.
