TRD Locker Won't Disengage

My TRD locker will not disengage on my '03 Tacoma. I followed the instructions from the manuel but it is still engaged in 2wd. I can hear the tires skidding as I go around corners. I am concerned about the wear on my axle, not to mention my studded snow tires.

I have tried re-engaging it and then re-disengaging it to no avail.

Any help would be appreciated.

I searched for a while and could not find any threads discussing this. Also not sure if this is the right spot for this?

Yeah I guess I will keep trying what the manual suggests (drive slowly turning wheel slowly left and right until the light turns off). The same thing happened last week but eventually released. I probably didn't engage it properly in the first place, I only read the manual after I had a problem of course.

I know most people don't use the locker very often, but I live at the top of neighborhood at over 7000 feet with steep snowpacked roads. If I am not pulling someone out of a snowbank, someone is pulling me out of one.

What would be the proper place for this thread anyway? I figured this one was for front axle swaps but thought axles>lockers?

This was two nights ago:

I always go in reverse and then forward, 4wd for me is similar and won't disengage sometimes just need to go backwards a little then forward. Same with my manual hubs..
