    We recently bought a 2001 Tacoma extra cab with the TRD and sr5 packages. Last week we found out that the e-locker doesn't work and I was pretty upset to find this out. In fact, I'm still frustrated at both myself and the PO. The PO told me everything worked right and come to find out he took it in to his local Toyota dealership in 2008 with a complaint that the TRD e-locker wasn't working. I know that I should have tested it before buying the truck but it's time to move on and deal with it.


    I found a couple FJ cruiser e-locker rear ends for sale in my state and I was wondering that if I bought one of those rear ends if I could rob off the actuator portion and swap with mine.

    - So are they compatible?

    -is it possible that it's just a fuse to blame for the non-working e-locker?

    Thanks in advance.

    Why not try to figure out why it isn't working? I would figure fixing might be as cheap as trying to get an axle and swapping parts

    How do I find out what is not working correctly? Im new to toyotas and Tacomas.

    From what I have heard, it's usually the actuator that has gone bad.

    my locker stopped working and it was because i stupidly took out the fuse thinking it did nothing because it said 4WD and i only have 2WD. but apparently when they say 4WD it means locker
