    when going through some mud for the first time in my new tacoma it stopped accelerating and stopped in the middle of the mud, i believe the traction control system did this. how do i fix this problem?

    Traction control will not stop the vehicle unless somehow both side lock up. Sounds like somethings wrong. In all seriousness give it gas next time because it works more effectively

    the traction control will start beeping and the little traction light will come on. did any of this happen? if it did indeed then when you push the traction button it turns off the traction and the auto lsd on. if you just hold down the traction fro 3-4 sec it turns all the computer stuff off and lets you enjoy 4wd to the fullest

    EDIT: I was thinking of the VSC nevermind

    Not really 4wd to the fullest. If you look closely you will see that most 4x4 vehicles only utilize one front and one rear wheel. Sometimes another might join but it is often too late. Traction control is nice because you have another wheel spinning
