Leighjean,If it is stuck in 4-wheel drive, you have to do this.#1 With engine running,shift to neutral.#2 Switch the dash conrtol to A4D (or 2WD).#3 Push on the brake pedal.(This is important) You shuold be ready to go in A4D or 2 WD.

Truck stuck in 4 LO please help


I have a 1999 Dodge Durango and I have replaced the front and rear differental twice because of a transfer case problem. I would use the part time 4W D and then I would shift out of it and back to regular drive as soon as I got off the ice. The light would go out on the dash letting me know I was no longer in 4WD, so I thought. Even though It said I was out of 4WD I was not and I burned up all that stuff again, this didnt happen ever time only occasionaly so now what we have to do and its an cheap easy fix. Just put truck in revere for a couple hundred feet than go forward make a hard sharp turn and you will know for sure if you are out of 4WD.

I recently shifted into 4WD, then back to 2WD. My 4WD light will not go off. I don't believe it is stuck in 4WD (No grabbing of front tires on dry pavement). Transfer case is full. Switch appears to be...


There is a switch that when triggered will illuminate the 4wd light. That switch is stuck in the on position. Check the transmission linkage that is attached to the 4wd. There are not many switches, so it should not be hard to find. It is probably just dirty and has gotten stuck. Use some wd40 to get it working again, and worst case scenario, you will have to replace it.

How do you know if the truck's 4 wheel drive is working? Thank you


On a dry dirt road put it in 4wd and drive slowley while turning back and forth very sharp, you will feel the wheels bind with each other. Then put it back in 2wd to feel the difference. You won't feel a huge difference on the dry dirt, but it will be there if the 4wd works. If you try this on dry pavement you will REALLY feel it and hear the tires straining with each other. It is not recommended that you make a habit of this on dry pavement because the binding is really hard on your drivetrain.

My 2000 Expedition seems to bind when making left and right turns. The back wheels appear to be dragging.


you need to check the front axle U-joints out by the wheels,they start to bind up when you make sharp turns,the U-joint won't flex and will need replaced

I purchased a 1988 Ford Ranger extended cab, the speedometer is off, the tires are 205/75 15's is this the correct size?


Is this a 4wd truck? The 4wd optional 15" tire is a 235-60-15, which means that with the tire size you listed, your speedometer will read 3.7% too low (at 60 mph indicated, you're actually going 62.3mph).

My 2003 mountaineer when I drive in reverse and turn will come to a stop if I don't really push on the gas. I have had the wheel bearings changed and the rear clutch fluid drained - that did not work -...


it sounds like your 4 wheel drive is engaged. whether on purpose or its stuck thats your problem, to double check jack up one of your front tires, if it wont turn then thats your problem

When i have my 4 wheel drive engaged making turns


If you are in 4WD, and not on a slippery surface, the tires may be having an effect called "scrubbing" where the tire on the outside of the turn is not rotating at the same rpms as the tire on the inside of the curve. I have noticed this on my jeep wrangler in 4wd.

Using 4wd on dry or non-slippery surfaces can cause this problem, and also will cause excessive tire wear.

Try the same manuever on a gravel road or a ice patch (it's been in 90s here in Texas, so good luck on that one) and see if it is improved.

Also, would probably expect a little more effort to steer when in 4wd because the universal joints or CV joints are not in perfect alignment during a turn.

Truck stuck in 4wd


Well stick it in 2wd to start.

Back it up in a straight line.

Try rolling forwards and turning.

If it bucks, it's still in 4wd. Try again.

You can also vary whether it's on pavement or off road.

Check your tires to make sure they're the same size. Even different brands can be slightly different. Also uneven tires pressure will do it. Any differences in sizes of tires may confuse the 4wd system when trying to go back into 2wd.

Good luck and leave comments!
