When the vehicle speed exceeds 40 km/h (25 mph), the four-wheel drive lock will be cancelled automatically.

The four-wheel drive lock indicator will come on for a few seconds when the ignition key is turned to "ON".

If the indicator light does not come on when the ignition key is turned to "ON" or the four-wheel drive lock switch is pushed, contact your Toyota dealer.


Use the four- wheel drive lock only when driving on the loose surfaces, such as sand, gravel, or deep snow, or if the vehicle gets stuck. After the four-wheel drive lock is used to provide traction, cancel the four-wheel drive lock. Using the four-wheel drive lock at other times may cause damage to the four-wheel drive system.


The "4WD" warning light warns that there is a problem somewhere in the active torque control 4WD system.

The light will come on when the ignition key is turned to "ON". When the system works properly, the light turns off after a few seconds.

If the warning light does not come on when the ignition key is turned to "ON", contact your Toyota dealer to service the vehicle.
