    Yes but they have one. They will read the codes for you for free. Pull the codes and that will tell us a starting point for the issue. I'm not saying we're going to nail it but at least have an idea of a possible issue or issues

    If figured that. There are 4 of them in the 4x4 system that go out from time to time and you will get that flashing light and it will not kick in. The bad thing is pinning down which one it is and putting a finger on it. And you can't return them to Toyota once they are opened because it's electrical and special order most the time. Most people replace all of them at one shot.
