Auto 4x4 Suddenly Stopped Working 2002 Explorer Sport

My 2002 Ford Explorer Sport has an automatic 4 wheel drive. The 4x4 has had very little to no use and never anything difficult. Pulled my yard tractor out of a minor problem in the fall and work fine. Suddenly, first snow of the year and no 4x4. Checked all the fuses and they are fine. Dealership wants $92.00 just to diagnosis the problem. Can you recommended any checks that I may be missing. I may be simply overlooking something very simple. I do not believe that there is anything majorly wrong with the 4x4.....probably a simple electrical wire or switch. Sure could use some professional advice before some scam tries to rip me off for more that the care is worth! By the way, explorer is in great condition, low mileage, been real well taken care of and my wife loves it. What else could I ask for? This car has nexver been off road and it is in terrific condition.

  • sounds like you might have a bad transfer case solenoid which is activated when you hit the 4x4 button to engage the 4 wheel drive. I had the same trouble turned out to be that only takes about 1/2 hour or less to change. It is located under driver side just behind trans looks like a small round cylinder with about 3 wires, you may have to cut and splice them back but be sure to put color to color and either tape them with electrical tape or solder them and then tape them.

Does my 2003 ford explorer sport have front wheel drive, rear wheel drive or all wheel drive. my email is kmmock1@gmail.com


it is most likely an automatic awd, 4 hi is full time 4 wheel drive, 4 lo is full time 4 wheel drive but at a very low gear ratio and should not exceed 25 mph or could cause damage. and DO NOT shift into 4 lo while vehicle is in motion. Auto is a 2 wheel drive but automatically engages into 4 wheel drive under heavy acceleration.

I just acquired my parents 2004 ford explorer from them and was wondering if the 4x4 auto comes on automatically or do you have to turn it on? they said there was some problems with the lights in the dash...


Why would or how would a vehicle know it was snowing,
and needed 4 wheel turned on?

Of coarse you have to select a button to turn it on or off

That said, it may not be working correctly,which is what your
parents told you!!
