After I have started the engine, the 4wd sign starts blinking continuously? I didn't engage the 4wd for more than 2500kms prior to it?:surprise

is you locker button engaged? after i went to the carwash the guy who cleaned inside must have pushed the locker button and this happened to me too. scared the crap outta me. check to see if your locker button is pushed. no big deal.

If you are on pavement, make sure you only go straight, no turning!
If you can do this on a dirt road, then you can turn all you want.

Put it in 4hi and drive back and forth a few feet, then put it back in 2 hi. drive back and forth again, see if that turns it off.
My understanding is that sometimes it takes it a few feet to engage and disengage.

If that doesn't work, someone smarter than me will need to chime in.
Do you have a Toyota 4x4 specialist near you to look at it?

Red or Amber?

The amber light is the 4wd engagement and should be lit (when engaged) or off, it does not blink. Unlikely you acidently knocked the transfer lever inot high it is a very positive action.

The red light is the rear difflock and will blink if the button is engaged but the lock is not. So if the button got pressed but you are in 2wd then it won’t lock and the light will flash.

It's ruined. Send me the FJ and I will dispose of it in an eco friendly manner.

What year is your FJ? Manual or Automatic? If it is an earlier FJ do you know if they added the ATRAC as a hack ...do you have RR/DIFLock button? Where exactly is this flashing light/what button/what color?

Thank U all guys it was much easier than I thought and a little bit embarrassing. I went to the local Toyota service and a young guy asked me promptly the question whether the diff lock was switched on....(I accidentally confused that switch with the next positioned light switch at the a- track Socket...)
