Yes, it has a button, and turns it off in 2wd, but in 4x4 it's on in hi and off in low regardless of the button..

I have a friend with one and I was hoping you could clear something up for us.. He's not internet savvy..

2011 Single Cab 4cyl 5sp 4x4. basically a 4x4 fleet truck.

How does the Traction Control work?

It appears that you cannot turn it off in 4hi, and you cannot turn it on in 4 low according to the lights. Is something wrong?

What does it actually do? Is it similar to the traction control on a <cringe> Land Rover where it grabs the brake on the wheel/wheels that are slipping?, if so, how do some of the aftermarket lockers work on this type of system in the Toyotas? As opposed to the traction control say on an AWD Acura which will drop the airbag suspension to keep you on the highway and get you stuck immediately if you are not on the highway?

Any input would be grateful.

Thanks
Andrew

Just hold it down longer and it will turn it off. i have that in my 12' and you basically in 2wd hold it down till auo lsd light turns off and says trac off. then put it in 4wd and it should be off.
