A mere 2,400km into the life of my 07 Rodeo TD 4WD, I used 4L for about 2km of medium-steep/slippery track. After stopping and selecting 2WD the 'Check 4WD' light appeared, meaning I was stuck in 2WD for the rest of that trip. Luckily I was able to complete the trip in 2WD without incident.

The dealer blamed me for 'not following the instructions in the manual' (utter codswallop), 'fixed' it, and very reluctantly gave me a scribbled set of instructions on resetting the system, which I've included below.

When I suggested that these instructions should be included in the manual, the response was 'not necessary if owners use the system correctly'. More cods.

Here's how to reset it:

1. Ignition off, hold all 3 buttons (2H, 4H & 4L) in together

2. Switch ignition on to 'reds' position (last position before start)

3. Hold in this state for 30 seconds

Hope this may be of use !!

Sound like a 'Windows' fix...
Just hold Ctrl-Alt-Del ....

hi nic
i haven't heard of that one but have noted the fix in case. in my handbook it says to rock the ute back and forward if you have trouble changing range. i have found it easiest to select 4 high on the move and then stop and move to 4 low rather than stop in 2wd and try and go straight to 4 low.
i have an unresolved ignition fault and was asked if i had ever jump started the ute. i said i had and the dealer said that was the reason and electronic repairs would be needed. he didn't say much when i said the handbook has several pages on jump starting and no warnings against use.

regards peter
