Default At Wit's End. Center Diff Lock and 4WD

03 4Runner 4wd Limited V6.

During our recent snowfall, I had to engage 4wd to leave my Mountain home. It worked fine and when I put it back to 2wd all of the lights went out. The truck is kept in a heated garage, so I don't believe ice is the issue.

The next day we had leftover ice and I engaged 4wd. This time the green 4wd light kept flashing and the Center Diff Lock light came on along with the VSC light. Nothing I do fixes it.

I'm not physically in 4wd as only the rear wheels will spin on ice and there is no traction from the front. I just don't know if the center diff is really locked and pushing the button has no effect.

I searched various threads on here, but none had the combination of issues I do. I'm about 30 miles from the nearest Toyota dealer and I don't want to destroy the diff getting it there.

Does anyone have any ideas?
