The light is flashing to let u know a fault has occurred in the transfer case electronic control system, most likely the transfer case engagement motor

Lincoln Navigator 4wheel drive 1998


See that this is an old problem. Some of the knobs could crack on the backside and allow the knob to rotate on the shaft without turning the shaft at all. If the knob is okay then go underneath the vehicle and disconnect the electric plug on the shift solenoid and Inspect for corrosion on the terminals. There is a problem which can happen if an indicator light burns out in the electric shift models. The length of the shift solenoid plunger is what determines whether you are in 2 wheel or 4 wheel drive, or high or low range. If the indicator light burns out, it changes the electric power and position of the shift solenoid plunger.

I was researching the recalls for the 2002 tundra and havent found any recall pertaining to the 4whl drive. Sometimes when people have their 4wheel drive locked in and drive on pavement for any length of time, whether it be just a couple of feet or a couple of miles, over time it creates a binding of the gears in your transfer case. Once the bind is so great, the engaging and disengaging starts malfunctioning and leads to bigger problems overall. I could be wrong about this being the problem that you have but I think its something to look into. It wouldnt hurt to put your vehicle up off all fours and release the bind if any by running through the gears while in 2 and rour wheel drive while all four tires can move freely and release. See if that works for you. Check your gear oil front , center and rear and use much caution when attempting this suggestion. Also refer to your owners manual troubleshooting section for other possibilities. Merry Christmas. By the way, the electrical switch should be covered in the troubleshooting section also.

Hi,

If its still under manufacturer warranty, have it looked at right away.

Otherwise, before you do anything, you need to access your vehicle's computer for any diagnostic trouble codes (your computer retains all data relating to electrical & sensor faults).

If you are technically inclined, I can show you how...but you will need to locate either of these data connectors:

OBDII connector - under dash, above driver or passenger knee

or

Data connector # 30 - located in the fuse box under hood, near the strut tower.

Let me know if you wish to progress further...

4 wheel drive will not engage (1995 S10 Blazer)


I had this same problem a few years ago. In my case I didn't use the 4 Wheel Drive very often and the tranfer would hang in 2 Wheel. I fixed mine by tapping on the transfer case with a hammer while my wife switched back and forth from 2 Wheel to 4 Wheel.

No 4 wheel drive, no dash lights, no tail lights!


check your relays first (after the fuses) and the vacuum lines if you have those for the 4 wheel drive. Hope that helps
