    My RR diff lock never stops blinking on my TRD 4x4 DC 08. I read the manual and it mostly explains how to set it for a manual tranmission. is it suppose to stop blinking? Or does it only lock when needed? not real sure how it works.!!

    Push the button again to turn it off.

    You have to be in 4Lo to engage the diff lock if not it will blink until to turn it off.

    yeah i was in 4lo then tried to engage it. never stopped blinking. My ABS light came on and i heard some clicking noise as if something engaged. but it never stopped blinking.

    Mine had a bad switch that sits on top of the e-locker mechanism. I think it's the same type switch as the back-up light switch on the manual transmission.
