There's a vaccum switch on your front axle thats probably corroded and stuck. It's common, especially if you don't use very often. There could be other problems but this is most common. Of course check to see if the vaccum lines are still attached. Mines bad too and I could only find it at the dealer. It was $180.00. If your mechanically inclined, read about this on isuzuforums.com and buy manual front hubs and by pass this system. New warn hubs are only $80.00 and much stronger, this is a very easy modification.

I have a 2006 isuzu rodeo and i cant get it out of four wheel drive low i have try to put it in 2 wheel drive high and four wheel drive high but it still coomes up on dash that its four wheel drive low...


I have 2002 and I find that you have to come to a complete stop, put it in reverse momentarily, and that should take care of it. Cheaper than going to the dealer and having them really fix it!!!

I have a 1997 isuzu rodeo the 4x4 indicator light stays on. Transfer case is working properly. SUV is definitely in 2 wheel drive. Is this a vacuum related problem


If you jack up the tires on the front end and manually rotate the left side of front wheel, the right side should remain stationary if the 4-wheel drive is truly disengaged.

Once you confirm that, check that the connector to the actuator switch is ok. It's mounted on the front axle on the drivers side. Check all the vacuum hoses attached to it as well.

make sure your in nutural, or park then if you have hub locks turn them to locking position. then shift small shifter if available into 4 wheel low or high. or may have just a push button to engauge. then shift into low or high. then you may use your regular stick to shift or just shift into drive w automatic.
