4 wheel drive won't engage


Which do you have ?
Transfer Case - NVG 236 (Two Speed Automatic)
Transfer Case - NVG 233-NP1 (Two Speed Selectable)
The NV236 transfer case is an automatic transfer case with three drive ranges. Shifting from rear wheel drive to four wheel drive is done automatically when the transfer case shift control module receives wheel rotating slip information from the speed sensors. The transfer case shift control module then engages the transfer case motor/encoder to position the transfer case from rear to four wheel drive. When the transfer case shift control module receives information that the wheel rotation is the same on both axles, the transfer case shift control module sends position information to the motor/encoder to put the transfer case back into rear wheel drive. The three drive ranges are 2HI, 4HI, and 4LO. The 2HI position is for normal driving with the rear wheels pushing the vehicle. The 4HI, position is for driving through sand, snow, mud, gravel, or heavy rain at normal or slightly below normal speeds. The 4HI engages the front axle to allow for four wheel drive. The front axle is pulling the vehicle, and the rear axle is pushing the vehicle. The 4LO range is used for off road driving, heavy snow, deep mud, or shallow fording. The 4LO is similar to the 4HI except that the gearing in the transfer case is set for low speed and high torque. The NV236 is manufactured at Syracuse New York by New Venture Gear a division of New Process Gear for General Motors.

Car is stuck in 4wd low HELP!!!


Vehicles built After Jan 2002 may have Electronically Controlled Shift Mechanism. In the sorento's there are the switch knob eitheir if this one the auto or manual . If your Transfer case is difficult to shift or will not shift into desired range. 1) Transfer case electronically controlled shift system malfunction. 2) If vehicle was operated for an extended period in 4HI mode on dry surface, driveline torque load may cause difficulty. Drive the vehicle in a straight line and momentarily release the accelerator. The transfer case can then be shifted to the desired mode. 3) Insufficient or incorrect lubricant. 4) Internal transfer case components binding, worn, or damaged. Other possible causes are; Different Sized Tires; Charging System Diagnostic Codes; Transfer Case Control Module; INTERMITTENT WIRING AND CONNECTORS; Transfer Case Selector Switch; Transfer Case Mode Sensor; Mode Select Circuit open/shorted. At this moment, try putting it in nuetral and shifting your knob to the auto (ex models) or 2wd (lx) and see if it's click into your position, if not, check out your owners manual and follow steps. If you still can't get it unstuck, could be fuse relay or fuse that malfuctioned your control shift system, or simply the above mentioned. Would recommend you taking it in to your dealship to have them see what is causing the promblem.

Cant turn on 4wd


Have you checked if the problem is with the front hubs or with the transfer case ?
Lift and support the front of the truck so the front wheels are off the ground ( take safety precautions, chock wheels, jack stands, etc ).
Key on, engage 4x4 and try to turn the front drive shaft.
If it turns it is a problem with the transfer case.
If it doesn't it is a front axle engagement problem.

Next with the truck running, have someone turn the switch to 4WD, and you should see the shift motor diaphragm move

If not, could be the shift fork is stuck ( try manually moving ) or cold be a vacuum leak back to the vacuum shift solenoids

You can remove the 4WD mode switch, and test the resistance on it ( this is also the vacuum line routing )

You might find moisture in the vacuum shift motor diaphragm, not allowing the vacuum to operate it correctly.

Manual Transmission seems to be stuck in low range. Transfer case in 2wd high range, however when transmission is shifted to 5th gear still only going 25 mph at 4000pm. Clutch seems to be engaging and...


The transfer case is stuck in the low range. If manual shift try shifting from low to high several times to see if free up. If electronic, check all fuses and make sure you hear transfer case change range. Do this by shifting with key on engine off. If no change refer to qualified transmission mechanic.

How to shift into 4wd


Ford has 2 types of 4x4 system engagement. One is a knob on the dash that you just turn to 4wheel drive high or low. The other system is the 4x4 transfer case shift on the transmission tunnel (hump) between the driver and passenger seats. To shift into 4 wheel drive high while driving, just let off the gas and shift transfer case into 4H position, and continue driving. To shift into 4 wheel drive Low, stop the vehicle completely, put transmission in neutral, shift transfer case into 4Low position, put trans. in gear, and start driving. I am assuming before doing the above, you have locked in ( turned the front hubs to 4 wheel drive position.) Any further questions, let me know.
