If the light is blinking it was never locked. You did not specify if you have a pre-runner or a 4x4. I will assume you have a 4x4 and if the locker is engaged it will not disengage at anyspeed..in 2 lo. If you take it out of two low and do not have a the grey wire grounded you will automaticly disengage the locker. If the grey wire is grounded you will have to push the button to disengage the locker. If that is the case or you drive a prerunner you were never going slow enough to prperly engage it *light solid*.
Enjoy the locker, you won't hurt it at speed but You would know it when you turn into a parking lot and slow down.
unless you have done the grey wire mod the rear locker wont be engaged at 80mph, since it only will engage when you are in 4lo. If you locked it when in 4lo and then shifted into 2wd ( i assume since you are doing 80mph) the light will blink.
i dont have a locker so i havnt done too much research on it. but do a search youll find a lot. it is a mod that basicly makes it possible to engange your rear locker if you are in 4low, 4 hi, or 2wd. as you stated, you noticed your locker light blinking when you were doin 80 down the highway. that is because it disengages when you take it out of 4low. with this mod it will be in as long as you dont disengage it...no matter what drive range you are in.
I don't know of anyone who has actually broken one like that, but it is extra stress on the axle, which can't be a good thing and I couldn't tell you how much it might reduce the life of the axle (more stress = less fatigue life).
With the locker, it would be better to only engage it when you need it, and disengage it when you don't need it anymore - a couple of seconds later while you still remember.
If it were to stay locked the light would be on and you would have had to do the gray wire mod as previously stated. But I would think city driving with the locker on would be worse that 80 mph down the highway. Since you wouldn't be cornering on the highway.
I currently have the Toytec 3'' lift with Dakar rear springs. This has allowed me to get by with 33''s, but of course they rub a bit. I am going to do a SAS coming up over the next couple months and was looking for a bit of advise. I know there are tons of threads on the matter, but I don't...
5VZ-FE Load Hesitation, Stutter, Sputter *SOLVED*
I've been chasing this engine stutter for about 1 week now. When parked if I rev the engine with more than 1/2 throttle it will sputter till about ~2,000 RPM. It feels like a misfire with out the CEL. The best way to explain it is a popping...
i bought a used 2004 double cab auto with what looks to be an inchworm taco box with a 4.7 kit and inchworm adapters connected to a stock push button transfercase. i drained the first case and it looked like looked like a half a quart of redline gear oil. the rear case had two quarts of...
My truck seems to have a problem with the throttle at 2300 RPMs or below. If I accelerate slowly it bogs and sometimes will "pop". If I stomp on the throttle it runs fine.
Background: I had a rebuilt 2.7 motor installed in my 98 Tacoma Excab. The original gave out at 538k miles. While...
Is it possible at all?
So was wondering if there was a trick to quickly replace the thermostat without having to drain the whole thing.
How much coolant would it spill out if disconnecting hose from old thermostast without draining radiator?
Is it worth the try? Too messy?
Parking on the...
