low range means you are in 'low range 4 wheel drive' push the button while the engines running and the gear shift levers in neutral to switch to high range [or 2x4] low range,cannot drive over 15 miles per hour,high range can drive up to 65 miles per hour. see the difference? you need to shift the transmission to neutral,while the engines running,and your foot on the brake pedal, push the button on the 4x4 to light up to the two wheel or rear wheel diagram. then when it lights up the 2 rear wheels, it's in rear wheel drive. if this does'nt describe your problem! please do not attempt anything and call toll free# for mercedes roadside assistance for free at 1-877-815-9962 these people have been a great asset to my buisness. thank you for choosing fixya.com
Hi, if your 4x4 is push button control just put in netural and push the button ,low range is real low gear for like mud digging and off roading and high range is for like the road like when its snow on road. If you have the shifter type put in netural and do the same as above just select 4 high or 4 low after placed in gear put your car in drive . That is how your 4x4 works. If i can help just re post.
Normally 4 wheel drive HIGH is engaged on the fly or as you are moving more than 10 km per hour or 10 miles per hour but 4 wheel drive LOW is engaged at around 3 to 5 mph. no more or you could ruin the transfer case. Try going from 2 high to 4 high by switching back and forth and then try 2 high to 4 low when idling along. What usually happens is the mechanics under the car freeze up or rust up and you have to switch back and forth to free it up.
This depends on what system you have installed in your truck. If you have push button 4x4 with auto locking hubs then you would put your vehicle in neutral and press the 4x4 button. You then drive froward about 10 feet and the auto locking hubs should then be engaged.
If you do not have push button control and you have a gear shifter which controls the transfer case you would push the level in 4x4 hi or low depending on what you want (while in neutral) then drive forward about ten feet so the hubs lock. If you have manual locking hubs you need to manually engage the hubs before you put it in 4x4 mode,
I am not sure about Ford, but several of the 4x4 models use a vacuum hose connected to engine vaccum to switch the 4x4 functions. If you have a push button engage system then you may want to check the rubber hoses around the front drive shaft. This only applies for the push button models.
