Question about 2003 Ford F150 Regular Cab

1 Answer

Switching to 4 wheel drive

I was telling my students today that I was pleased with my 2003 F-150 because I can switch in and out of 4 wheel drive and driving in the snow is no problem....well, they told me that I was supposed to stop, put the car in neutral and then switch back and forth to 4 wheel drive. Have I been doing it wrong all this time? I switch on the go---based on the need and conditions of the road.

YOU WERE RIGHT. it does not have to be put in neutral. Just stop or slow down the rpms. Before switching to 4 wheel drive.

    something I find very odd is no-one ever seems to read their owners manual to find answers to questionslike this one. your manual spells out how to properly operate your vehicle. off your don't have a manual, you can download on for free for most any vehicle.

Wont disengage out of 4 wheel drive 1998 ford ranger first time its stuck in 4 low we have backed up turned switch numerous times shut it off and restarted


Be sure to put the truck in neutral, while engine is running, while you disengage from 4 wheel drive (low) to 4 wheel drive (high) and then finally to 2 wheel drive. It is critical to shift transmission into neutral when switching out of 4WD Low, as indicated in your owner's manual. Hopefully, this will help to FixYa problem!

How do I use the 4 wheel drive on my Ford Ranger XLT 2.5 TDi 2004


4L only to be used in extreme condtions
N
4H for off road/snow/ice
2H - normal driving

when switching to 4H vehicle must be stationary, as when changing from 4H to 4L
but it is possible to change from 4H back to 2H while in motion.
when 4wd is engaged a lamp will illuminate on dials telling that the hubs are free wheeling, when changing back to 2H you must press corresponding switch to dis-engage this function

2000 Ford Ranger no 4wd lo


In order to get into 4 wheel drive low, make sure the shifter is in neutral before switching the dial to 4 wheel low. 4 wheel high and 2 wheel high can be switched into in park or in drive but 4 wheel low can only be obtained in neutral. If that does'nt work you may have an electrical or switch problem. Hope this helps. God bless!

The electrical switch going to the 4wd is bad more than likely. It would be the one under the truck
