Question about Cars & Trucks
I was in 4wd HI. I had stopped and put vehicle into 2wd and started to move. it seemed as if it was still in 4wd when i went to turn. It wouldn't let me shift back to 4wd hi so i shifted into neutral. When I tried to go into 2wd it wouldn't let me. All the time I am sitting still. I then applied emergency brake and shifted into 4wd lo, then back into neutral. Still couldn't get into 2wd. Then it wouldn't let me shift into 4wd lo either. This is a manual shifter, not an electronic
Put main gears into 1st.
With a gentle foot on the clutch, you can hold pressure on the selector and slowly bring pedal up so you can 'feel' something moving with the stick. If it doesn't go in first go then 'rock the box' with clutch movement at that sweet spot where it just starts to engage (in and out) and it should drop in.

They acually have an Rapid response for this. This should have been replaced before the car was even sold.

Ok the drive shaft will spin thats good. remove the front driff actuator and see if the plunger extents. if it doesn't check that the power and grond ar ok. If they are then replace the actuator. Just so you know the two actuator may be diffrent. If it has been replaced no problem. If it hasn't ever been replaced then ther is a updated part it come as a kit witha harness spacer and actuator.

Testimonial: "Fixya pointed me in the right direction to find the problem. It was in fact the front actuator which was not expanding. The 4wd is working. Thanks."
