On my ranger the moter that puts it in 4 wheel drive was bad. i thought that the 4 wheel drive just didnt work. after i took the moter off the back of the trany i saw a niple sticking out. it is labled around the caseing 2w 4L and 4h. you can turn that nipple with a pair af vicegrips to any setting you want to make sure it works, that will help narrow it to wireing or moter probloms.

I would try tapping on the shift motor mounted on the trnasfer case as they have been known to stick at times. I would also make sure you do have the vehicle in neutral and your foot on the brake pedal before trying to unlock.

2001 Ford Ranger, 4wd doesn't work. The 4wd light on dash flashes 10 times about every two minutes.


There is obviously an issue with the transfer case. I doubt anything mechanical is wrong. Take it to your nearest autozone they can scan the code and give you a general idea of what to look for. 99.9% of the time they can help point you in the right direction. I had a smiliar problem with my exploder but mine was simply a shorted wire in the 4x4 high low selector switch assembly.

!998 ford ranger stuck in 4x4


sounds like it's the motor is going bad or has a bad connection, try cleaning the connector if there isn't any gunk in the connector, check the manual see if there is a ohmn test you can run on the motor, if not i'd replace the motor.

1994 ford ranger 4.0 4x4 supercab


My wife just recently had a similar problem. She got stuck in the mud and put our 2004 F150 in 4x4 Low to get out. She didn't. Had to have AAA pull her out. She then left a bit later and the truck was still in 4x4 Low even after switching to 2WD. She even tried going backwards to get it to switch. So she called me frantically and I said I'd call her back. So I called our local Ford Repair shop and he gave me these instructions (loosely based on what the owner's manual says to do)

1. Start Vehicle
2. Switch to 4x4 Low
3. Put in Neutral
4. Switch to 4x4 High
5. Go in Reverse for a bit and then Forward a bit again
(You should now be in 4x4 High)
6. Put in Neutral
7. Switch to 2WD
You should now be good. If that didn't work, then try repeating step 5 after step 7.

Hope that helps, as it worked for us.

Its most likely either or, if its a high pitched sound its probably the wheel bearing. If its a growling/grinding/clunking sound its probably the CV Joint. However, your problem more than likely lies in either/both.
