    4WD quit on my 2001 Tacoma.
    No dash light and no 4WD.

    Dealership replaced the 4X4 Detact switch on the transfer case.
    $75.65 part. Labor extra.
    PN 8422235110

    It may be the problem.
    I understand there is another motor that can go out but that one is in the $400 range.
    Hope the fix is cheap.

    If your dash light doesn't come on & your tires aren't spinning/turning. Your front differential actuator is not working. I have the same problem, ordered the part at the stealership today for about $340.

    Also, here is the test they do on the front diff to isolate the problem.
