    Bought a 2002 tacoma yesterday and the rr diff light seems to be coming on and im not sure why. Not familiar with locking diff model as my previous 2000 didnt have it. Any idea what could be causing it

    Engage Offroad long travel front and rear with some fat tires.
    x2... if the light turns on solid whenever you turn the truck on, the button could be pressed and the locker engaged...

    while at a stop, press the diff lock button and crawl forward, turning the steering wheel and if it's engaged, you will hear a click from the rear when it disengages and then you are set to drive regularly...

    While you are checking the ecu might as well do the grey wire mod!
    Good luck!

    I feel the same way but didn't want to offend you if you had a 2wd.
