[Need help] Warning lights? Multi-terrain & Four-wheel drive indicator light flashing

To my friends and 4Runnertiers!

I've been going nuts looking up and down this (and other forums), mechanics manuals, and I may have finished the web at this point.

I come to you with humility and a sense of pride that someone on here may have an answer or various answers I can test out.

The Multi-terrain Select Indicator and Four-wheel drive indicator lights are flashing. The first slower than the second, but both flashing.

I have a 2016 4Runner Trail Premium.

Here's what I've tried so far:
  • Put the 4wd mode selector to 4Lo. Drove in Reverse for 100+ ft. Also drove forward for 100+ ft Did the same for 4Hi. Tried this a few times over. No luck.
  • Checked the fuses, both in the car cabin and in the engine bay.
  • Scanned and cleared any and all codes a few times using a BlueDriver Bluetooth OBD2 scan tool.

A few questions:
  1. Could it be a relay? If so, which one?
  2. One of the wires loose on the ABS or other sensors?
  3. Traction control messed up?
  4. Any relation to a parking brake bypass switch I've added to my aftermarket stereo (Pioneer AVIC8200-NEX)? I've had the switch for a while, but fiddled around with the radio and wondering if there's any causation.
  5. Related to the Pedal Commander I use?

Many thanks in advanced!

Rob

Did your Scan tool show any codes?

Follow the code n see what it is.

I get an annoying Cat Code (bank 1 I believe) that pops up every 10-20k, hate when the dash lights pop up. I cleared the code by disconnecting battery for 3-4 hours and it resets. I prob need to replace cat but first will try Cat Cleaner in fuel n see if that helps.

Try to do this and see if your code comes back up.

Others will chime in. Good luck.

just fyi.... this is how my issues started... after a few weeks it went to just a flashing 4x4 light and the MTS light no longer illuminated.

I have tried clearing the codes (they just come back)
i have checked all my speed sensors..
i have done a zero point calibration.

i have removed power to all aftermarket lighting ( to see if there is any result of my wiring jobs)

nothing fixes it.
I have a feeling my master control solenoid is bad.

I am dropping the truck off at the dealer on Tuesday.

Shoot, it will be in 6 days! Good call, although I have lifted the car. Wonder if they'll cover it.

Nope, no codes, which threw me off.

Let's definitely keep in touch! I may setup an appt at the dealer the day before my warranty runs out just in case. I have to get the airbags replaced due to the recall anyway.

mine is a 2018 but i have no warranty as i have close to 50k on the truck.


hopefully your issue is just a speed sensor or abs harness.
if its the solenoid like i believe my issue is, its like a 1500$ repair

Also, if they do end up being the ABS Speed sensor, then think something like the SDHQ guards would help?

yes the SDHQ guards will stop damage to your sensors.. if thats what actually happened.

those sensors are kind of out there and vulnerable if you are rolling thru alot of thick debris and such.

Is the check engine light also on? If so (and I realize this sounds silly), remove your fuel cap and re-tighten it. A lose fuel cap will trigger an engine warning light. The ECU disables all kinds of things when the EWL is active. Crawl control, Terrain Select, etc, all get disabled and blink on the dash.

I basically was in your shoes a few weeks ago...it was the neutral position switch on the shifter in my case...$450 plus, but I had the extended warranty...no problem

I think powertrain is 60k or 5 years.
