Hi everyone,
a couple of week ago I had my LC serviced (230,000) and new front brake discs fitted. The front bearings were also taken out and repacked. While out on a bush track two days ago I selected L4 and while it went into L4 quite well and the dash indicator light came on, I was left with no low 4. This was the first time I have tried L4 since the service. I had used the L4 about 3 months prior to that and all seemed to be working OK.

I will go see my mechanic as soon as I can but was just wondering if anyone has any ideas as to what may be the cause?

Cheers
Kev

Hi Tim, no not fitted with them (full time 4wd) but certainly acting like it.

Cheers

100 series have had quite a few failures of the electric actuator that engages L4. A small alloy arm inside the unit broke on mine but of course the entire thing had to be replaced. After 25 phone calls to wreckers all up the east coast I eventually found one suggesting it's a common problem.
After the fuse that's where I'd look next.
