    Hi,
    My 2000 4 Runner with automatic transmission has flashing 4 wheel drive green (4) and amber (1 center) lights on dash. I have tried cycling shift and push button switch several times.
    It seems to be stuck in 4 wheel drive, is it OK to drive with flashing lights and what is the fix.

    It is a Limited.
    Switch seems to work as lights go out for about 10 seconds then back on flashing.
    Drives and steers strange, very stiff.
