well if you do not have a hoist then up need ramps or a really good floor jack and jack stands so you can get under it to where the starter is located .remove battery cable first then under the truck remove the nuts holding the wires to it then the bolts that hold starter motor to the vehicle doing it in reverse when reinstalling .GOOD LUCK

Look for the fuel pump switch or inertia switch. This is a small box with a plastic button on top and an electrical connector at the bottom. On some vehicle models, this will be located in the luggage compartment. Look on a side panel for a small, round button which you can pry off with a small screwdriver.

This is typical of o-ring "seals" in the injector systemof the 4JX1 engine losing seal quality which will mix oil and coolant together and return both into the fuel tank and radiator. Smell the radiator. Most likley will smell of diesel fuel and perhaps show oil if you dip a timber ice cream stick into the radiator. Often occurs after overheating (towing or low on coolant). Buy an electric "ratchet" pump on eBay if you are going to fix the injectors [1 0-ring] yourself (and the sleeves [2 o-rings] per cylinder. You need a sleeve removal tool also. Instructions are available on Australian 4WD forum. The pump is to pump out of the fuel tank before you start the job. Take the input fuel line and hook into the pump. A plastic tube of the right size onto the outlet side and energise the pump. Drain into a 2 litre container(s) until diesel shows up instead of water. Drain the coolant before starting the engine repairs as some coolant pipes are made with rubber component pipes and could deteriorate if left too long. You need a copy of the manual (free online - do a search). You need to tighten the oil rail and injectors to the routine given to ensure good sealing. New copper washers for the injector ends are essential for good sealing. Ive had good results from using old rings for sizing and replacing with Vitane o-rings from hydraulic supply dealers. Label clearly when purchasing. Do not use standard rubber as they are not temperature rated. O-ring on internal injector plunger is "ceramic" and is not feasible for normal repairers and is usually not required. .RichW

maybe it is froze up

If the headlamps are on and the light switch has no affect, either the switch is faulty or you have a chaffed wire somewhere making the relay pull in.

Is this ALL the lights or just one side? One side could be a blown fuse as most vehicles use separate fuses for the left, right and hazards. Does your hazards button work the turn signals? Yes? This suggests it could be the steering column switch causing the problem. Hazard button doesn't work? It could be the flasher relay not working.

Pull the tire off the brake that is locking and find the problem. It may be oil soaked from a bad seal or the springs may have broken or the shoes may have come apart.
