FWD not working

I can shift it into FWD but the green light does not come on and I don't believe it is kicking into FWD.

There is an electronic switch underneath in the linkage I believe that becomes corroded if not used frequently on my 2001 Montero Sport. At the start of each Winter season, I have to work the 4X4 lever to get the green light on. I then drive around holding the lever in position to keep the light on. I shift in and out several times as well. After the first time out in 4X4, it comes on and stays on the rest of the season. You are correct about the green 4X4 indicator light. If it is not on, you are not in 4 wheel drive

My 1984 S10 won't shift into fwd. also the button on top of fwd shift knob is stuck down


The shift linkage bushings and the Shift lever bushings are probably worn. Adjustment of linkage and shift lever is probably needed. If this is beyond your DIY capacity, I'd take to a competent Transmission shop. Or purchase a repair manual from your auto parts store. You will want it again soon anyway if you are a DIYer. filepeep.com may have the manual, or try manualslib.com

More than likely. one of the front wheel speed sensors has gone bad. I believe the computer uses this input as well as the speed sensor on the transmission to determine shift points. In order to find out which sensor is bad, a technician will need to hook up a high-end scan tool.

Shifting to four wheel drive.


If the Amigo is like other fwd setups,you should be able to pull the floor shifter back one notch for fwd in the standard(or high)driving range.I don't know if you can shift "on the fly" with the Amigo,so I would shift it to 4x4 while stopped in nuetral. When you pull the shifter to the left(towards the driver)and all the way back,that should be 4x4 in the low range(for speeds under 20 mph only). I would not recomend that you drive you vehicle on the highway in low range....The button on the dash may actually be a light to let you know when you are using the fwd. Make sure you kick it back to 2wd when you return on dry pavement.Any Isuzu dealers' service department can also help you on the matter. Good Luck!
