Question about 2009 Lexus LX 570
If your vehicle has 4 wheel drive, then the 4low means you are in 4 wheel drive, low gear ratio. 4low is great for towing heavy loads, especially up hills, but it will be bad for your vehicle in the long run if you are not towing and just want to drive. If you can find out how to turn off the 4 wheel drive, or at least put it into 4hi then you should be set -- your owner's manual should have directions on how to do this (it is totally different from one car maker to another ... and sometimes even from one model of car to another). If you have a "shift - on - the - fly" 4 wheel drive, then you should be able to find a button or switch somewhere in the car that you can use to go to 4 high (4 wheel drive hi gear ratio) or 2hi (2 wheel drive high gear ratio).
If you can't find the information on how to fix it anywhere in your owner's manual (which is unlikely) you can buy a Haynes manual for your make and model of vehicle, and the directions for returning to 4hi or 2hi should be there. Good luck!

On any suv with 2 and 4 wheel drive options 4 low generally means that the transmission is in 4 wheel drive low gearing option so that the most possible torque is transferred to the wheels by way of what would be called a granny gear. What you will need to do is check your 4 wheel drive settings to see if the transmission has been put into this option which is either on a separate shift lever or a push button either on the shift handle or on the dash. Your owners manual should also direct you to where the selector is at.
