    Mine's a 1998 Explorer, I've checked fluid, I've checked relays and reseated connections. I've backed up an entire block, let it sit in N for thirty seconds, no luck. My 4x4 light is not on steady. I get no lights but on initial start and once every minute or so, both 4x4 Low and 4x4 High light up together five times. I've removed the front drive line so I could get it home, then back and forth the four miles to work without causing driveline damage. I've tried to price transfer cases, transfer case shift motor assemblies, nothing is available for this truck. Any suggestions in my case?

pulg in the motor, put the switch on 2wd and then try to in stall it alot of time they can be a pain to put back in. you have to make shur that the motor and gear same location. if your transfer is in 2wd and the motor is in 4wd it wont slide in place motor 2wd transfer 2wd should slide in.

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!

Stuck in 4x4 low


Have you tried backing up at least 10 feet .. If there is any driveline bind this would release it and allow the transfer case to "shift" ..

4x4 low feature


The noise you heard was the 4x4 mode engaging. This noise is normal.

Under normal operations, if you were to have wheel spin, this noise would happen quickly and numerously within a couple of seconds.

Be sure that before going above 20mph, that you press either the 4x4 HIGH, or 4x4 AUTO buttons to avoid damage to the vehicle.

I disconnected the electronic control on the transfer case and it seems to have unlocked the 4x4

At the back of the transfer case, near the top, there is a connector. I unplugged it and that seems to have disconnected the 4x4. My 2002 Explorer was stuck in 4x4, even though the 4x4 light was not on and I hit the Auto button a lot.

2002 ford explorer 4x4 will not disengage


Not knowing what type of 4wd engagement sytem you have, this is a guess. Maybe vacuum operated, look for a cracked or disconnected hose.

Or do you have manual locking hubs, that have to be turned manually?
