4W will not turn on ford ranger 1999 4x4

The 4x4 switch does not work. My 1997 ford F-150 will not engage in 4WD when I activate the 4WD selector switch. When selecting either 4HI or 4LO no 4x4 lights come on in the dash or makes a clicking sound as it should???

2001 Ford Ranger, 4wd doesn't work. The 4wd light on dash flashes 10 times about every two minutes.


There is obviously an issue with the transfer case. I doubt anything mechanical is wrong. Take it to your nearest autozone they can scan the code and give you a general idea of what to look for. 99.9% of the time they can help point you in the right direction. I had a smiliar problem with my exploder but mine was simply a shorted wire in the 4x4 high low selector switch assembly.

Shifting into 4 wheel drive


For 4W Hi either be stopped or moving at a slow rate of speed (<20 MPH) and move your 4WD selector to the 4 Wheel Hi position.

For 4W Lo stop and move the selector from 2W Hi to 4W Hi then push down on the selector and move through N into 4W Lo.
