You can take the bulbs out and wash them out from the holes, a good way of preventing this is to use silicone around the bulb connector but then you have to clean all of the silicone off when replacing the bulbs

Mudding 4x4

This is because the 1500 series is considered light duty regardless of whether it is 2x4 or 4x4. When you add the large mud tires and wheels to the vehicle, that alone stresses the hubs and transfer cases. Add in the overevvving and sudden start-stop jolts of mudding, and you have all the making of drive train failure. If you want to play big boy games, get big boy equipment.

The light is giving power to the actuator which is trying to work. Check that the lever is not jammed from mud ,rust etc and that the lever moves freely.

My brother's got his ford f150 standard truck stuck in the mud and now it wont start the battery is fine but when you try to start it all it does is click the first time then if you try again it wont do...

Hi, The only way the mud or water has got into the heads is if the engine or exhaust is stuck below the mud/water. Try to see if the exhaust is clear of mud or water if this is blocked then you will not start. But I think you may just have the starter motor has got mud into it, in which case you need to get vehicle pulled out & bump start it, IE: whilst either pulling or better to push the vehicle & get it to start. Do not turn it off until you have given vehicle a run as this will eliminate any mud around the flywheel which is why the starter will not work. Please leave me feed back: Malcolm Campbell, Thanks.

Transmission will not shift into 3rd gear

no problems before the mud deal but problems after the mud deal means that the problems started in the mud
check for mud in connections , wires disconnected , harness problems, vacuum hose to actuator broken or missing
run the fault codes to help point to a problem area
the transmission is sealed so there will be no need to change the oil or filter--just clean and check everything that is mud affected

No fire

I have a '93 Ranger 4.0 4x4 and had the same problem before. Make sure the distributer isnt wet and make sure all connections are tight. I took mine through some mud, got the distributer wet, and it died and wouldnt start until it dried. Hope this helped!

I just went out in the mud in 4wd and had to get on it to get out of a puddle. Now where my 4wd drive line connects to my transfer case is smoking what could be wrong?

Does the transfer case work? Can you 4wheel? If you answered yes then wet mud and hot metal mean smoke.
If case doesn't work you blew it out.

Green indicator light on 1998 kia sportage

That light sounds like a differential lock or 4-wheel drive. This is usually found in 4-wheel drive and all-wheel drive vehicles. Being the light is "GREEN" and not amber or red tells me that it's not an abnormal problem.

Look around your dashboard or gearshifter for a button labeled 4x4 HI, 4x4 LO, 4x2 HI. sport/off road button, or a second, smaller shifter. Switch them around a little, and if it is a 4x4 selector, be sure when you drive on paved roads to have it set to 4x2 HI. 4x4 HI should only be used if you get stuck to help you get out (snow/mud) and 4x4 LO is only for off road driving (trail blazing/rock climbing/4-wheeling/mud bogging,etc.)

Also, check for any switches labled "DIFF LOCK" or 'AXLE LOCK". In most cars a green light is normal operations.

I hope I could help you find a solution to your problem.
