    Hi Everyone , got up this morning to leave for work. My 06, 6spd with 33K on it would not move. No the emergency brake was not on. Truck really seemed locked, would not go forward or backward.
    Later this afternoon, I called the local dealer and got a tow truck and he winched it on to the flatbead. All the wheels turned but the left rear. Something would seem it was frozen in the left brake area or perhaps a bearing.
    Will let you know the ugly details, hopefully tomorrow, my dealer in Milford, MA. works on Sunday.

    The guy who picked my truck up was soaked from the tremendous amount of rain we have been having. He earned his dollars. Probably should have gotten Triple A.

    Were there any symptoms when you last drove it?

    If not - I'll be really interested in finding out what could lock up a wheel while the truck was parked ...

    Same thing happened to me when I get hit in the front bumper in a parking lot. I had to stand on the brakes and you could hear a "clink" as the brakes released. Dealer said it was some sort of safety mechanism when the truck is not running, which could be total BS. Anyway, hope you get if fixed....

    Mostly stock for now, I have added a cb radio, various cheap mods and I plan on adding aftermarket wheels and other items in the future.
    I'm curious to find out what the verdict is on this one too. I wonder if it could be a bad differential or transmission, maybe they locked up or something, or stripped some gears off. :confused:

    Sorry to hear about it, did they at least pay for a rental car? My local dealer payed for one when my truck was in the shop getting fixed back when it was still under full warranty.

    Just a quick update for everyone. The tow truck came to get it, (in the pouring rain) and when he winched it up on the truck , all the wheels were turning but the left rear.
    I am guessing a locked up parking brake or something in that area.
    The truck has been running fine, it never gets abused, never goes off road and I tow a small boat and trailer.

    I expect to hear from the Toyota dealer today.

    Just another quick update, got a call from the Toyota people, they seem to think there is more wrong than just the brake in the back.
    I did not talk to them as I was gone the whole afternoon. I will be dropping by to speak to them directly and hope they have a sharp tech on duty this morning. Will let everyone know.

    Still yet another update, of course its Monday morning and the dealer is busy. The service manager thinks its in the transfer case but they are still working on it.
    Will know more this afternoon.

    Got my truck back today, no charge what ever they did was under warranty, I was not home when they called , they told my girlfriend "something was stuck" truck is fine and its ready to be picked up.
    By the time I got over there all the tech guys are gone, service guy is gone , the young lady service advisor doesn't know squat. Truck drives like normal. No explantation given on the work sheet.
    So I will got over on Wed ( the next day the tech guy works ) and see what they have to say.

    Major league mystery!

    I think I'd ask a few more questions to find out what happened. If something related happens once your warranty runs out, you may still get it fixed for free. And if they don't cover it next time it happens, you'll know how to fix it.

    Yea, you can bet I will be asking more questions, like I said there was no one there who knew anything or had any idea of what went on. At least its documented in case I have problems down the road.
    Looking at the notes when my girlfriend spoke to them , they thought something was stuck in the transfer case.....
    I will email them this morning and set something up to drop by the dealership for a consult.

    Went to the dealer this am and spoke to the mechanic by phone, he thinks the problem is somewhere in the front differential. So I will make a appt for next week to have looked at ....

    how did he fix the truck if he thinks its in the front diff?i guess he didnt fix shit and the wheels unfroze itself by being dragged up the flatbed.i would really pick his brain and see what he did to the truck to repair it and have it put on a work order for your records. dealers are shady.

    No this is no happen again, the service advisor should have scheduled a appt for me to drop it off this coming week so they could look into the front differential area, which the tech says where the problem is. So we will see how it goes.
    From the lack of response to this thread it sounds like an isolated problem ...... but it is still under warranty and I am keeping a log of paper work so I can document the repair.

    Well the front wheels were free so I have trouble thinking it is the diff. When you put it in D, did it feel like it when in D (like the tranny shifted)?
