Driving a vehicle with diff lock on hard surfaces will damage the drivetrain. Try to avoid this. If your center diff is locked, be sure to press the button on the dashboard (Center diff) to the off(button out) position. (Yes, you didnt press the button, but your model automatically engages diff lock in 4lo) So dont engage 4lo on hard surfaces.
Try reversing a couple feet. This may free up the diff so that the lock can disengage. If this does not work, find a large patch of grass or gravel. Turn the steering to full lock(left or right, doesnt matter) and pull off. This should disengage the lock. It is good practice to engage the difflock at least once a month as this will keep the lockers lubricated enough so that they dont bind like yours have done.

Your Toyota should be in four wheel drive all the time. If you look at your owner's Manual it should give you some options, but you should not be able to take it out of four will drive it should be fulltime four wheel drive. Good luck.

This could be a grounding problem. Check all battery connections. Also check motor to body ground strap for corrosion. Check battery to motor ground and battery to body ground. Even if the ground looks allright it can be corroder underneath, so you have to take the ground bolt off to clean it.

Did a shop do the trani ?
If so - bring it back for adjusting..
Sounds like the moulator linkage needs adjusting.. If you dont know what or where that is - I would suggest bringing it to a trianed pro..
If you do know what that is and where it is - try adjusting the adjustment on that linkage..
