I have a 10 Tacoma. I live in ND so I'm in snow country. When I get into a snow bank in 4WD, as soon as the wheels start to spin, the truck applies the breaks and since it's a straight stick, it immediately kills the engine. I'm then as you guessed it, in the middle of the snow bank and most likely stuck.
I've talked to other, not necessarily Toyota owners, and they don't think this is normal. Anyone know if it is?
Also, if I'm in 2WD, I can push the traction control button on the left of the steering wheel and disengage it. However in 4WD, it does not want to activate the disengage feature. Again, is this normal?
Last, how can I disengage the traction control when I don't want it to take over and kill my engine and get me stuck?
Any help is appreciated...
