this seems to be because either the connection to the solenoid is loose or faulty or the solenoid is not activating. the transmission control module sends a signal to the solenoid to activate it. you get the light because the ecm detected that there is a a problem with the circuit. this is due to the fact that there is a voltage value to the solenoid and it is out of operating parameters

SOURCE: 2000 F350 Super Duty Will not go into 4 wheel drive

I have recently had this problem with a customer. It seems the 4x4 low will only engage in neutral with the brake applied. And also check fuse. Then select drive and you will feel it lock in. Don't "goose" the fuel when attempting this.

I have the same problems but found the problem. Put a vacuum pump on the hub and see if there is any. I have one that has 30 inches of vacuum and one with zero. The only solution I found was to buy a used one from a salvage yard. The hand vacuum pump is only $40 but you will save over a $1000 doing this.

SOURCE: front wheel noise whilst driving

Yes it sounds like a wheel bearing.I would jack the suspected wheel off the ground and then grab it from the top and bottom and then try to move it with a push and pull movement.If the wheel moves that is most likely the bad one.I would also try the other wheel just to be sure.The bearing isn't to bad a price but the bearing needs to be pressed in and out to be replaced.

96 sidekick gear engaged only on 4x4 but when I put it on 4x2 all gear wont work

do not use 4wd on dry pavement, ever.
it's only for show or ice, or off road.
never day pavement.
if you persist i this action you will wind up the drive line and damage parts.
see the damage here.
stretching that chain drive or worse.
click ICEFREE here

your car does not have AWD , all wheel drive.
not even close.
the correct car is a 2004+ Grand vitara with THAT OPTION.
the same RULE applies if the GV if you drive like this
with the GV nob turned to LOCK> (DONT)

Try it while backing a straight line. This was how the old manual hubs released. The autolock hubs may be worn just enough to hang up and not relaease as they should. Backing up will give that extra nudge.
