I just bought a 1998 Hilux Surf. It has an automatic gearbox. When pressing the brake the drive selection should be unlocked, but it does not. I need to use the "red button" to unlock the drive selection. In other forums I did find some points to check: - brake lights are working - fuses are ok - there is no clicking sound while pressing the brake with the engine running.
The speedometer and odometer are also dead. Besides that the car drives great :-) I would like to know how to diagnose the issues and if there could be any relation between the drive selection not unlocking and the speedo/odometer.
