Asked by May 11, 2015 at 03:13 PM about the 1999 Toyota 4Runner 4 Dr Limited 4WD SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

and where is the unlock switch

1 Answer

Look on the console next to the shifter, you should see a square plug. Use a small flat screwdriver and pop that off. Then stick either the screwdriver or even you finger in there and push the lever. Hold and put shifter in N. Then to fix it, check your brake light fuse.
