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

How do I use the 4 wheel drive on my 1998 Ford explorer. It has a switch that can be turned to auto, 4 low, or 4 high


you can switch into and out of the auto or 4 high modes while moving.

If you want to use 4 low you must stop and place your transmission in neutral. While stopped, turn the switch to 4 low. To get out of 4 low, again stop and in neutral switch back to desired mode. DO NOT SWITCH TO 4 LOW WHILE MOVING!

96 explorer disengages 4wh low but does not engage 2wheel


Does it shift to 4wd high range ? If so then shift to 2wd . What is going on here is the transfer case motor is stopping due to the motor position sensor has gone bad which means that you replace the transfer case motor assembly. But if you wish to make it a 2wd for awhile then remove motor and manually turn shaft . This can be done by raising and supporting rear axle truck in park remove motor turn shaft slowly with pliers and rotating the play in drive shaft. There are stamped markings on back of case showing gear positions..

Try having the truck where you can reverse for 75 to 100 feet shift truck into 2whieel then into reverse and back up 100 feet this should unlock the differential. if not get under truck there will be a a small switch mounted to the transfer case near shifter remove switch push rod in with a screw driver then re-install switch on transfer case.this will work.

Does the vehicle have to be in neutral when you put it in 4 wheel drive, or what is the proper way to engage the 4 wheel drive


it has to be running and in neutral to engauge the 4x4. shift to neutral,then push the 4x4 option that you want. 4wheel high you can use almost any sensible speed.4wheel low is only for low speed 15 to 20mph is best for 4wheel low,otherwise will damage engine or transfer case. when you take it out of 4x4 it has to be in neutral also. thank you for choosing fixya.com

1999 Dodge Durango 4x4 stuck in part time


Try going in reverse for a few feet the next time it does it. I have had problems like that on my old dodge and I would go in reverse for a few feet and then it would shift fine. I hope this is all it is.
