1995 blazer 4wheel drive not always working


on the transfer case area there should be a relay to tell it to go in to 4x4. now once you put a blazer in 4x4 and no longer need the 4x4 En-gauged you will need to put the blazer in revers and back up 10 to 15 feet to get it out of 4x4 before driving.

I HAVE AN 09 RAV4 THAT IS A 4X4. THERE IS NO LEVER OR BUTTON TO PUSH TO ENGAGE THE 4 WHEEL DRIVE - ONLY A BUTTON TO LOCK THE DIFFENTRIAL. DOES THIS MEAN IT IS ALL WHEEL DRIVE, AND IF SO WHY IS THERE A 4X4...


probably the same button that locks the differential automatically locks the 4x4. if the 4x4 light is on your dash then the 4x4 should be working

ABS/CHECK ADVTRAC/SKIDDING CAR LIGHTS GO ON


The abs sensors also control the traction control and 4 wheel drive actuators so if one of the sensors is faulty the traction control will be disabled and the drive system will be stuck in the mode set at time of failure be that 4x4 or 2wd
get the abs system repaired

1994 explorer 4 wheel drive


Since it seems no one has answered in 3 days I will say something. Some of the 4 wheel systems use vacuum to lock and unlock the 4 wheel system. There are solenoids in the transfer case which adjust the functions into 4 wheel auto, 4 wheel, and 4 wheel low settings. On the units that use electric, the electric strength or power determines how far the electric solenoid extends or travels to change gear functions. These are sensitive electric settings. A burned out dashlight factory wired into that circuit can change the result of what 4 wheel function you will receive. So will a bad connection of a plug-in to the transfer case.

A technician can test the wires to the transfer case and see what electric readings are going into the transfer case when the dash is set to the different dash settings. Besides a Dealer, a really good transmission shop can perform this test.
