Have a non-working rear diff-lock on a 2002 D/cab 4x4 - not a Gearmax one. Toyota says all the vacuum pipes work as well as all electrics. When the switch is engaged - the R/Diff Lock sign flashes red on the dash board?? I tested it - the diff does not lock.

Any experience with this before - someone help...

Albert,

If my memory serves me correct here, The Difflock only activates when the Vehicle is in Low Range. IF yours is not activating in Low range then i suspect that the solenoid has packed up on your diff lock. A Friend of Mine drives `n 99 2.7i D/C 4WD and had the same problem. He still if I am correct hasent fixed his one as his wife uses the vehicle as a car and to visit building site's for her work.... :shock: :shock:

Hi Albert

I had a similar problem on my Lux and as JohanM mentioned the Difflock only activates when the Vehicle is in Low Range ,You can have a look at the low range switch on the left hand side of the gearbox ,if I am correct it must switch close when you select low range and open if not. The problem with my locker was the plug on this switch was dirty and not making proper contact ,Cleaned it and every thing was fine.

Hope you get it sorted out soon

Sorry Okkie,

Ek werk oorsee, en sal erens in Sept-Nov weer tuis wees. Ek sal dan self kyk soos jy aangetoon het - Toyota self se hulle vind nie die fout nie?!!

Ek sal jou weer kontak met terugvoer - die bakkie maar skuit-skuit die bult uit daai Berakha roete gedoen moet ek se - en met die ewenaarslot is dit nie probleem nie.

Groete,

Albert.

Hi Ockie (en die res),

Ek weer tuis en sopas die voorste solenoid uitgehaal en getoets - hy werk reg - by Auto Electr getoets.

Ek sal nou agter moet kyk.

Die RR DIFF LOCK liggie bly flikker, en ABS lig is aan en groen 4X4 teken is aan. Die pen slaan dus nie in nie - want mens kan dit hoor as mooi luister.

Ek sal verder soek...

Ockie en die res,

Nuwe agterste solinoid is in - liggie kom nou momenteel aan as sleutel gedraai word (soos ABS liggie ook) - dit het nie voorheen nie, maar as in LR bly liggie flikker as DL knoppie gedruk word?!!!!

Dit beteken die pen skop nie in nie?

Sover my kennis strek, moet die difflock kan engage, al is jy in 4x2. Die 4x2's kom ook met DL uit en dus moet hulle dan inskop as jy die knop druk. My bakkie (4x4 KZ) s'n werk ook nie, maar die liggie wys hy is aan. Gelukkig werk die 4x4 en kan ek regkom met dit alleen. Weet ook van ander manne se DL's wat nie werk nie. Lyk my dis 'n algemene probleem. OP 'n vorige bakkie, 4x2, beweer my seun die liggie het rooi ge-flikker en as hy dan wel inskop, groen. Ek self kan dit nie onthou nie. Laat weet as jy die fout kry, ek laat weet as ek myne se fout kry. Groete Hennie

Die difflock werk net in 4L, daar is 'n manier om dit te bypass - die thread is hier op die forum viewtopic.php?f=1&t=3926. Difflock sal eers inskop as daar 'n verskil in die spoed van die twee agterste wiele is maw as jy difflock aanskakel maar reguit ry sal die liggie bly flikker todat jy probeer draai dan sal die difflock inskop en die liggie aanbly.

Dankie Johan en die ander se bydrae. My DL werk. Het toe vanmore myne moes toets in die modder - julle was reg: hy werk net as hy in Low Range is. Die oomblik as jy hom uit LR haal, dan begin die liggie weer flikker. Ek sal dus die sisteem moet "by-pass", want ek wil nie altyd in 4x4 ry nie, want daar is baie plekke op terrein waar net DL werk. :lol: :P :D:
