2004 F350 Powerstroke won't go into 4 wheel drive

My F350 (6.0L diesel) won't go into 4 wheel drive. The 4x4 light comes on and you can hear the transfercase motor but the front end is not engaging? Someone mentioned a possible problem in the vaccuum system and that these super dutys seem to have this problem often. I need help on when to begin and how to troubleshoot the problem.

    Same problem with my 2002 F-250 SuperDuty V-10. In answer to the question about locking hubs, this truck's setup actually has both - a dashboard selector switch that is supposed to engage 4WD without having to do anything else (it used to work that way, has recently stopped working.) The truck also has manually lockable front hubs, but the problem I have with them is that the left one can be locked (meaning the knob will turn from "auto" to "lock) but the right hub knob will not budge. It's stuck in "auto" mode. I haven't tried driving with just one hub locked as I think it might cause damage. But, now that snow season is here, I'm stuck with a 2WD truck. My Honda Civic gets better traction in the snow. Help!!!

Engine light comes on and then it just idols gas peddle does not excelerate on a 2000 F350 7.3 liter diesel


The Check engine light is the first place to start. UNFORTNUATLEY the code readers that the A/P stores have for sale and use won't read Powerstroke specific codes. You need to take it to a shop that uses a code reader that will or the Ford Dealer. Just a guess, but if your truck has the "flly by wire" throttle pedal ( no cable), then I would suspect the throttle pedal validation sensor. There is a known issue for a "dead spot" in the sensor in the go pedal assembly.

Hear a popping noise when braking. Could this be


This vehicle does not have king pins. There are a lot of front end parts that go bad. Ball joints, stab links, sway bar bushings. Best bet would be to have a proffesional take a listen to it.

Locate the fuse box under the dash panel. Pull the fuses one at a time and inspect. They are very hard to judge if the fuse(s) are blown unless you pull them out to inspect.

When in auto hubs the 4 wheel drive doesn't work


They are operated by vacuum. Check to make sure the vacuum lines are connected and not ripped or anything. If that checks out fine, remove the vacuum line from the hub and apply vacuum to the hub, if the hubs lock then the problem is in the vacuum line or switch.

I have recently had this problem with a customer. It seems the 4x4 low will only engage in neutral with the brake applied. And also check fuse. Then select drive and you will feel it lock in. Don't "goose" the fuel when attempting this.
