    Have a 2004 Tundra, 167000 miles. I can't get it into low range. I get a light and a beep but it won't set into low. Hoping there is an external switch somewhere under the truck I can clean and lube but I haven't crawled un der there to look yet.

    Welcome.
    Are you completely stopped, in neutral? I would also take a look at ur actuator.

    Welcome. Nothing under the truck you can do for a switch.

    Does it engage 4wd in high normal any strange sounds?

    Are you putting the transmission in neutral when shifting to 4wd low?

    Going to neutral did the trick. I guess looking at my owners manual would have told me that but I misremembered it had to be in park HA. It's great to have a place to go to get help on simple and not so simple questions.
    Thank sall.
