While in drive, engage the 4wd, then shift into neutral for 2 or 3 seconds, then shift back into drive. it works for my '98 ram.

Is there an electric or vacuum switch on a 2001 chevy blazer


There are 2 models here the push button will flash if the system is not engaging or disengaging properly . If front drive shaft is turning. That is with car raised and supported . if front drive axles do not turn then the axle actuator is not engaging axle shaft passenger side. Remove actuator and manually engage shifting collar with a screwdriver still does not turn then inner axle is twisted.

Cant get out of 4 wheel drive


If it is a push button four wheel drive system there should be a soft vaccum line the runs to your front end where your axle shafts are connected. There is a little box there which is what controlls your two wheel and four wheel. It's possible that the line is dry rotted and won't hold enough pressure to switch out of four wheel or also possible that the sensor there has gone bad as well.

Every time i push the button for the four wheel hi it makes the click noise in the front but DOES NOT ENGAGE. only the back tire spins


Depending on the year, it is not posted, it may be a bad transfer case motor. The clicking you are hearing is the motor trying to engage transfer case & front axle. It looks like a windshield wiper motor & when it gets power & works properly it engages front wheels. Again, depending on the year, may be 4 wheel drive actuator or switches bad on front axle or transfer case.

My four wheel drive will not work when i push the button it makes a sound but it will not go in to four wheel drive


The actuator is stuck. You can find your 4x4 actuator mounted to your front axle housing towards the passenger side from center.

1988 ford ranger push button four wheel drive an it wont engage all the wires are good it just clicks when u push the button.. what should i look for to make the four wheel drive work again it wont...


Start out with buying yourself a $25 book from the Parts House. The I would go to the front HUBS, secure & safety vehicle before you do anything, Clean, Inspect, Lune & Repair front Hubs as required, get the brakes while you're there. Check your drive line, axles, u-joints etc. Clean , repair , replace as needed. Check for Tranfer case Operation. Is there power going to the front Axle when 4WD is engaged? do you feel a change when you engage the Transfer Case? Have you checked the Power on the circuits? Have you Manual or Auto-locking Front Hubs? Answer all those Questions & read before you do anything.

Transfer case fuse blows when engaging four wheel drive.


Hello;
Sounds like yoou have a short either in the switch pod or in the 4wd electrics. Check for pinched wires or bare wires grounding out at the front axle and at the transfer case.
Thanks;
