The 4wd system has set a code. You need to have it checked for codes with a scanner.

I just did a quick reset ( remove the negative battery cable for a minute and put back ) and it hasn't happened again, if it were to happen again just take it to the dealer, must likely all you will need is a quick flash of your computer with the startscan.

Also, check this TSB http://www.wkjeeps.com/tsb/tsb_wk_2101406a.pdf would start with this update if need.

Hope helps (remember to rate and comment this).

How do i use the "Hi/Lo" "shifter" in this 1991 Toyota Land Cruiser, what is it for? Why would i change it? I have driven this car for a long time now and never use i do i need to?


The hi/lo is a function of the 4 wheel drive on the vehicle. The hi ratio would be used when negotiating sand or mud for instance and the lo for steep inclines where more power is needed. This is like having a gear with better pulling ability than first gear. You will find driving in 2nd gear lo will give you the same speed as 1st gear high.
Do not engage the four wheel drive system when driving on hard surfaces ie tarmac or concrete. Use it only on surfaces where additional traction may be needed. It is a good idea to use the 4 wheel drive system at least once a month in order to lubricate those parts of the 4 wheel drive system that would otherwise be "dormant" when in 2 wheel drive.
If you have diff lock funtion on the vehicle it would be a good to idea to engege this as well but once again only on a soft surface. The reason being that the centre diff lock tends to bind and stay engaged due to it not being properly lubricated.
If it does bind(dash indicator stays lit) find a patch of grass or sand, engage reverse and drive a couple feet. If this does not disengage the lock turn the steering fully left or right and drive in a circle. This should then disengage the difflock.

Four wheel drive wont engage


If you have push button 4-Wheel Drive, it is recommended that you use it every once in a while, in order to keep gunk, rust, and corrosion to build up on moving parts. The mostly likeley (though not definite) reason would be that you let the 4-wheel drive unused for so long that corrosion has built up on the parts and the actuator that engages the 4-Wheel Drive doesn't have the power to engage it past the corrosion. You'll need to take it in to be cleaned, or to have parts replaced. In the future, every month or so, engage 4-Wheel Drive and drive around in some mud, grass, sand, or any other loose ground for a bit, just to keep the parts moving and clean.

The service Four wheel drive light is to alert the operator the system is not being read properly by the ECU.

If the ECU loses contact with or position of the Transfer case actuator motor the service light will come on. Same thing goes for the front diff actuator.

So it may be a bad switch, sensor, or an actual problem in the 4WD linkage. This is not a Oil Change light that you can ignore a few extra weeks - it indicates a problem that should be taken care of ASAP to avoid costlier problems down the road.
