2005 Ford Explorer stuck in 4 wd low

I have tried backing up, warming it up, backing it up putting it in N and then back into 4 wd auto. Could this happened if the truck was towed?

this may be no help atall, but i had a GMC pickup once, and there is a vacuum switch that was stuck and that was causing my problem. it was around a $300 dollar fix, and that was 8 years ago, so i imagine it is quite a bit more expensive now.

put it back into 2 wheel drive, then reverse 10 or 15 feet, this should unlock the hubs.

SOURCE: My 2003 Ford Explorer is "stuck" in 4wd low

Most lkeley it is the solenoid that controls the link that has siezed. It gets the worst of conditions down there, so will need a clean and service if possible - or replacement.

Bad steering rack.
Had you flushed the P/S Fluid,every couple years,you could have avoided an expensive repair!

I drove 12 miles with truck in foru wheel low and now it is stuck


you have to put the main shifter from park into neutral.
then move the electronic switch from 4 low to 2 wd.or the "auto" setting.
then move the shifter into reverse and back up about 10 feet.
put it in drive . good luck with it.
