    My 4X4 doesn't seem to be working at all.  I turn the switch and the light comes on but nothing out of the front wheels.  4X4 Low is the same thing.

    I have a 98 expedition, the AWD, 4x4 4x4lo - all dash lights work but it will not engage. When you put it in "N" and sift into 4Lo it clunks but still the wheels spin like it is not in 4wd. We banged on the shifter box underneath but it still appears it is not engaging. Any help would be great, called new shiftor box is around 115.00.

    Hi, I have a 1990 f350, quad cab 4X4, last year when I would engage the 4 wheel, it would make noise, clicking in the hub area and would not engage the 4 wheel. I took both front hubs apart and cleaned them real good, there was water and dirt in them. Now they are sealed, cleaned and lubed with lithium grease but the 4 wheel will not engage.The front drive shaft turns when I engage the 4 wheel, just the front tires wont turn, any ideas?

    same problem, switch to low or high 4 wheel, and tires wont engage, Now after i switch back to normal 2 wheel, there seems to be a loud thumming from the front tires, like the tires are riding on highway maker bumps....I replaced my front bearings,

    When I turn my 4x4 in on the inside the light comes on and the transfer case kicks in, but the wheels fail to go in. I have to manually turn the wheels into and out of 4x4.

Please be more specific. How is it not working right? Does it make strange noises when you use it? If so where does the noise come from? What kind of noise is it? (clicking, chunking, squeeling, etc.) In order for someone to be of help, we will need to know a little more. Thank you.

SOURCE: four wheel drive lite is blinking and wont go out

Hi, You will need to take to mitsubishi dealer and have them scan your diagnostics. But this is a common thing in montero's and it sounds like o ring (which is plastic) in transfer case has busted. As long as it switches in and out of 4 wheel drive it is ok to drive. If it doesn't, dont drive it...it could cause alot of damage.

SOURCE: Four Wheel drive not working. Blows fuses.

Hi:
Your four wheel drive push button system has only 3 components, so there is a way to narrow down what is blowing the fuse:

the system includes the push button panel and indicator light, the shift control module, and the shift control motor.

The shift control motor is the only part that can draw enough current to blow the fuse. If for some reason the transfer case is jambed up, that could blow the fuse too...So if you are planning on attempting repair yourself:

first, unplug the connector off of the shift control motor, and see if the fuse still blows.. if not, then remove the shift control motor from the side of the transfer case and plug it back in to the harness and see if the fuse blows. If so, then the shift control motor is bad, if the fuse doesnt blow then you need to check out your transfer case.

1979 ford f-250 four wheel drive won't engage


I take it the transfer case shifter feels okay (shifts through all four gear positions), so try jack up one side of front end, rotate wheel while looking in knuckle to see if drive axle turns, if it does, then hubs engaged. Now if someone holds the front d shaft, and wheel won't turn, then both hubs are engaged. Next put t case in 4xhi or 4xlow, if you cant turn the wheel, then the t case is engaged, and all is normal. If wheel still turns at this point, then the t case is not engaged for some reason, but post again if it does. Hope this helps.
