Question about 1994 Ford Explorer Limited

3 Answers

4wheel drive will not engage.

The 4wheel drive will not engage on my 1994 Ford Explorer Limited. I was advised by the Ford garage, if the switch light does not come on, the switch is no good. I have changed the dash switch, it didn't solve the problem. Checked all the fuses, they are all good. What would you suggest I try?

    On a 1994 Ford Explorer Limited, Can you tell me where the Generic Electronic Module is located and how to go about checking it? Is this something that has to be hooked up to a computer to be tested? Thanks, jmiller883

The switch that lights the light on your dash is located in the actuator for the four-wheel drive. would hazard a guess that the actuator is weak and is not fully engaging your four-wheel drive.

Have the motor tested on the transfer case, they stick and cause this concern, you will need to pull the motor assembly out of the transfer case to check this out, after you have it out operate the 4X4 and see if the motor works, if it doesn't the next item to have checked is the Generic Electronic Module, this is the module that controls almost all functions except the auto trans and the engine controls.

96 explorer disengages 4wh low but does not engage 2wheel


Does it shift to 4wd high range ? If so then shift to 2wd . What is going on here is the transfer case motor is stopping due to the motor position sensor has gone bad which means that you replace the transfer case motor assembly. But if you wish to make it a 2wd for awhile then remove motor and manually turn shaft . This can be done by raising and supporting rear axle truck in park remove motor turn shaft slowly with pliers and rotating the play in drive shaft. There are stamped markings on back of case showing gear positions..

1994 ford explorer 4 wheel drive not working


Go to the engine compartment where the relays are located with the fuses. Check or replace the 4 wheel auto engage relay , maybe is not working. Is very clearly mark, I believe is the top right one looking at the bost front front of vehicle to the back. There is a diagram drawing of each relay in the cover, so you can't go wrong.
