Problem reading 4WD button.......


Asked by Jan 30, 2013 at 09:47 AM about the 2012 Toyota RAV4 Base 4WD

Question type: General

I have a 2012 Rav4. I can't tell if it is in 4WD or not.  When I push the button to put it in 4WD the indicator on the dash  says, "locked".  When I push it again, it says "locked".  It seems to always be locked.  What am I missing?

Is the car in neutral and stationary when you push the button?
