Hi,

I had a similar issue in my '05 tacoma once. Switched into 4 low...no problem. Come time to switch back, it doesn't want to. The beeping alert carries on. Was at a full stop, tried neutral, park, and it will not disengage. Any suggestions? It is a 2010 5.7

I had the same problem last week. I was in lo range crawling out of my driveway (SNOW) when I got to the main road I shifted the tranny into neutral and the 4lo wouldn't disengage. Somehow I managed to get the transfer case into neutral because when I put the tranny back into gear I had no forward gears. Back into neutral, turned button every which way possible. I was sitting in highway so I was in kind of a panic. At any rate I finally managed to hit on the correct combination and got back into 4 high and then 2 high.

This is the second time I've had an issue with 4WD shifts. Once when the truck was new I had a hard time getting the truck to go into 4high. All these electronics are great when they work, but back in the day the old 4wd stick in the floor worked well enough for me. As posted before just try different combinations and it will probably go out of 4lo. Wish I could tell you exactly what I did, but I just don't know.

Are you turning it or pushing it in and turning it?

My 07 tundra did the same thing once. Put the truck in nuetral and turn the switch to 2wd then pull the 4wd fuse under the dash and reinsert it. It should then go back to 2wd.

best bet in the future, dont use low. only high, it pretty much serves the same purpose, and engages and disengages on the fly. i've been driving 4X4 for over 13 years now. and from experience i don't even mess with 4lo. 99% of the time to use low you have to drop it in neutral to engage and disengage

Once, I rubbed the dash, turned the radio up, got out and kicked the passenger side rear tire, opened the tail gate, got back in the truck, turned the wheel all the way left, opened the hood, got out, admired the 5.7, got back in, and then turned it back to 4wd hi. J/K. What a pain in the a** pulling the fuse.

If you've been turnign at all in 4lo, then you prolly have some bndingi n there so drive straight or in R to reduce the binding and get out. Should be able unbind the transfer case in bout 20 feet.
