    My 2008 5.7l tundra has been good to me these past few weeks I've had it but I ran into an issue this morning. I drove the truck the 15 miles to drop the kid off and work with zero issues. All highway and surface roads. Pulled into the parking lot and work and as soon as I put it in park, my VSC OFF light and 4lo light start flashing. I tried putting it in 4lo but it beeps at me and won't engage 4x4 at all. I've read a few things about disconnecting the battery or inspecting the speed control sensors and harnesses on the wheels. Anyone had any issues like this. I've read that these lights go off as saying, "shits fucked" but I couldn't find if there was a specific combination of lights for other things. Haven't had a chance to dig in since I'm at work but I plan to as soon as I get off. No lose of power or any other issues I've noticed besides the lack of 4x4. Any help is appreciated.

    Update: Disconnected the battery when I got home, inspected all the sensors behind all the wheels including the wire harness, no damage anywhere. Looked all inside the engine bay and underneath the truck at all the sensors. Didnt see anything I didnt like. Reconnected battery, everything went away. Including the CHECK ENGINE light I got a few days ago and Autozone diagnosed as the gas cap. Figured the seal wasnt good on the cap I had on there so invested in a new one, just hadnt installed it. We'll see how long it lasts.

    Glad it wasn't something worse. How much was the replacement cap, if I may ask???
