2000 ford explorer xlt fwd is not engaging

I hear a chatter in the front wheel but it will not engage.
The auto fwd does not work.

No fwd at all.

Do you know what might be the issue.
It is a urgent situation as we are in 3 ft of snow here in wisconsin.

Thanks

94 ford explorer fwd will not disengage


alot of times when engaged on the fly or disengaged on a slope the shift control module on the transfercase can stick. try to re create the terrain when it was engaged and put it in reverse hold the brakes and shift out of fwd let it roll a few feet, stop completely put it in drive. that should pop it out

My 2000 XLT Explorer makes a 'knocking' noise somewhere in the front end which speeds up as I accelerate. It is loudest at about 50-60km/h and gets quieter from there up... I changed both wheel...


Hello, This could easily be the CV joints. You were in the vacinity of your problem when you changed the hubs. Although the front differential should be checked for gearlube level, the trans fluid is not going into your differential.

You can siphon out the excess trans fluid. The differential is in a floating mode without being engaged, but the CV joints can easily make noise while not being engaged.

I have had a number of clients with 4x4's swear they had problems with the front end. But many have written back to me and let me know thier problem was the front driveshaft U-joint. This is especially true for noises seeming to come from the passengers front side. As the front U-joint is dead center on the vehicle, it is to the right of the Driver so the driver thinks the noise is coming from the far right side.

I hope my solution is very helpful to you.

Cant tell if my front axles are locking in . the light on the dashboard works . the transfer case locks in its a 1996 ford explorer xlt


considering its winter the best way is to put some thing in front of front tires and try to move forwards if you cant put it in 4 wheel mode and then try it. if you climb over then axles are engaged.

4wd not engaging no indicater lgt basicaly no 4wd


I had a prolem with my 1998 Ford Explorer XLT. The 4wd indicator light would randomly start to blink while moving and when I flipped the switch to 4wd hi or low it would engage but easily disengage and the indicator lights would not come on. I was hearing a grinding sound coming from my hubs so I replaced both front hub assemblies and the light stopped blinking and 4wd hi/low works great now. it was about 300 bucks for the hub assemblies and only took me an hour or two to change.

1994 ford explorer 4 wheel drive not working


Go to the engine compartment where the relays are located with the fuses. Check or replace the 4 wheel auto engage relay , maybe is not working. Is very clearly mark, I believe is the top right one looking at the bost front front of vehicle to the back. There is a diagram drawing of each relay in the cover, so you can't go wrong.
