--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Really? 4x4 Off Road? Right now it's stuck in my driveway because once again I can't get the #$%^& 4x4 to engage. Pulled out of the drive in 4x4, decided to turn it off cause the pavement was dry. Tried to turn it back on when the snow got deeper again, No dice! Not even a click or anything. Does anyone have any idea why this happens?

Working fine now. This is the most aggravating thing. Works when I don't really need it and not when I do need it. Like it's not returning to the home position when I turn it off. After I drive it, it works fine the next day.

Hmm, it -might- be because of slush buildup on the top side of the 4x electric engine motor - I know its a big issue with Toyota Tacoma's on slushy roads, it splashes up tehre and start interfering with the shifting.. gotta take a shovel or something to scrape some of it off and itll work again right away.
