The front-wheel drive control lever or switch is shifted to H4 when Multi-terrain Select is in ROCK, MOGUL or LOOSE ROCK mode. The mode indicator will flash until the lever is shifted back to L4.

If the Multi-terrain Select indicator continues to flash

This may indicate a malfunction in the Multi-terrain Select system.

If the Multi-terrain Select indicator goes off while Multi-terrain Select is operating

• One of the vehicle systems related to Multi-terrain Select may be malfunctioning.

Have your vehicle inspected by your Toyota dealer.

• The brake actuator may be at risk of overheating.

A buzzer will sound, the “A-TRAC” indicator will go off and the “TRAC OFF” indicator will come on. Stop the vehicle in a safe place. Refrain from using Multi-terrain Select until the “A-TRAC” indicator comes back on and the “TRAC OFF” indicator goes off.

The selected mode may not be suitable to actual off-road conditions due to factors such as the type or unevenness of the terrain or the degree of incline. Check the actual terrain thoroughly and drive safely.
