Question about Ford Explorer
I have a 96 Explorer and I just tried to use my 4 wheel drive for the first time this year. Right away it seemed to drive "heavy" and eventually the 4WD and 4WDLOW light both started to flash... then go out.
I tried to make a fairly tight turn and heard something rubbing (almost like my wheels rubbing my wheel wells) and then I couldn't move. I disengaged the four wheel drive and felt my truck settle (clunked and lowered) and then I could drive again. Thank goodness I was almost at a stop when this happened.
What could be causing this?
SOURCE: I have a 96 Explorer
When the lights flashed the system was telling u a fault has occured in the transfer case engagement actuator, most likely the motor or the mechanism it operates stuck, have you ever serviced the transfer case? I would do so, that will most likely cure the problem.
