Try hammering the locking hub with a wood or a rubber hammer while slowly reversing the vehicle,
spray it with lubrication first.

4x4 problems transfercase stays on


If you have locked hub drive in the front end then that shaft will be turning all the time when moving as the front wheels will be making it turn through the diff,. If you have free wheeling hubs that allow you to disengage the hubs then the shaft will be turned from engagement from the transfere case. In that case check that you are in fact changing out of 4 wheel drive and the actuator is not jammed or rusted in the engaged position

What does free wheeling hubs do i have lots of noise comming from them while in two wheel drive


Free wheeling hubs are installed on the hubs to engage the axle and lock to the hubs making them turn. When you disengage the hubs (freewheel) the axle is not driving the hub hence you have effective 2 wheel drive I suggest you check wheel bearings or make sure that they are in fact disengaged properly

Warn hubs, installation


Warn Hubs Installation
A truck or SUV with a four-wheel drive suspension uses locking hubs on the front wheels to engage or disengage the front axle shafts from the hubs. This way, you can drive the truck normally with just rear-wheel drive, or engage four-wheel drive mode when you want to drive off-road. These hubs can wear out, and one improvement is to install a set of Warn hubs. Installing a set of Warn hubs takes about an hour.
1.Park the truck and put on the parking brake. Lift the front of the truck with the jack and put the jack stands under the front axle. Take off the front wheels with the tire iron and put them to the side.
2.Disengage the locking hubs using your hands by turning the knob on the hubs. Remove the snap rings holding the hub locks in place with the snap-ring pliers. Pull the hub off the axle.
3.Install the lock ring wheel from the Warn hub kit in the axle with the factory snap ring and the snap-ring pliers.
4.Make sure the Warn locking cap dial is turned to the "Free' position. Install the locking cap onto the lock ring wheel and hub body with a hex-head key. Reinstall the front wheels with the tire iron and lower the vehicle off the jack stands with the jack.

1995 GMC Sonoma will not switch back out of 4 high?


Are the front hubs still locked in?

If you have manually locking front hubs, you probably have a bit of binding in the drive train due to the front wheels being locked to the drive system

After unlocking the hubs, back up about 20 feet, then back forward about 20 feet.....see then if the transfer case can then be disengaged. You MAY need to just yank on the transfer case shifter while the vehicle is moving (slowly of course).....

I had an older ford pickup which did the same thing.....disengaging the hubs and just yanking the shifter had disengaged the 4 wheel drive then I was able to put it back into 2wh high.

2004 F150 WILL NOT GO INTO 4 WHEEL DRIVE


the first thing to do is to have the trany computer scanned for codes, the code will help alot in pin pointing your problem,you can try autozone they scan for free, these trucks that ive worked on.one had a bad 4wd transfer case selector motor, and another had bad front wheel locking hubs, these hubs are vaccum operated and go bad often the diafram rips on most of them.

Why would all the lights come on my 4 wheel drive buttons about ten minutes after i start the truck


My 2003 Silverado has done this several times. This happens (at least on my truck) when I switch from any other mode to 2H when the truck is not moving. The front hubs are locked in the engaged position (actually, it locks inside the front differential) when in 4HI, 4LO, or Auto-Trac. When switching to 2HI, the front hubs try to unlock. The mechanism may bind, especially if they haven't been used for months, like during the summer, and don't completely move to the unlocked position. A switch tells the controller when unlocked, but doesn't always get triggered when the hubs don't get completely disengaged. Usually cycling between 2HI and Auto-Trac while driving will free up the hubs and make prevent the problem of all 4 lights coming on at once. Turning the engine off and then restarting it will usually correct the problem with all 4 lights lit at the same time by resetting the transfer case controller. Then, you will be able to switch from 2HI to Auto-Trac and back to 2HI while driving, as described above, to free up the mechanism. If this doesn't fix it, you will likely have to replace the switch in the front differential that tells when the hubs are completely disengaged, or, more likely, the motor that disengages the hubs/drive axles in the front diff.
