4-wheel drive will not lock-Nissan Titan

When I shift the knob the front diff lights flash and will not lock no matter what configuration I do with the knob and transmission. I checked the transmission fluid and it is up, I also have the abs light and the slip light lit and will not go off.  I am getting tired of Paying nissan for a truck that just went out of warranty.  AAAAAAAHHHHH if some one could help I would appreciate it

    I have the exact same problem. My tailpipe fell off and I repaired it but about a month later the slip and abs lights came on and the next time I tried 4x4 it only flashed. I will be checking the wire harness near the tail pipe. Thanks

I checked a consumer advocate site and realized that I am not the only one with this problem. I read that there is a problem with the Nissan Titan tailpipe falling off, well the problem with this is that it melts the wire harnes that goes to the abs and rear wheel sensors. Since this system is all interconnected it causes the 4 wheel drive not to work. In particular I found an unprotected wire harness disconnected by the passanger side rear wheel that was broke, after stripping this wire and reconnecting it, it turned on the 4-wheel drive. Make sure the truck is off and it is in 2 wheel mode when this is reconnected it could cause a blown fuse or an electric shock. Trial an reading free blogs solved my $675 diognostic fee, pass this on I am sure I am not the only one with this problem.

I got a 97 Chevy 2500 put new front actuator in transfercase shift 2wd 4 hi 4 low but front doesn't lock in buttons just flash an there is power to it I'm kinda lost


did you put the actuator in the transfercase or the front diff if you did not but a new one in the front diff remove it and check it most likely its the one in the front diff should be easy to get to and can be removed without loosing any fluid

wd diff lock only locks the front to rear diffs not the 2 wheels on the same diff. To have both front wheels driving as you require will need limited slip diff in front or locker in front Be hard to steer in tight areas but they are available.

check out detent limit switches on gear box and transfer case for continuity and open circuit when pressed(on /off switch) these are feed back signals to indicate it has locked into 4x4 or 2x4, if one of these dont work properly system locks up and wont do anything any more. also check front one on diff near actuator, common problem. check actuator is working properly when vacuum applied and removed. can remove this and bench test unit,some oil will be lost when removed for bench test and you can check colar inside diff slides back and forth to lock axle.

I just replaced the front diff accuator and it still wont shift into 4x4 i also pulled the fuse to reset it. It sounds like its working but wont shift,the 4x4 light just comes back on any suggestions?


there is an aluminum shift fork behind the actuator that has a knurled end on it.that end breaks off and will not allow the diff to lock in.you will need to remove the passenger side axle and the actuator to access.also check the transfer case shift module.also common on that vehicle.

Driving a vehicle with diff lock on hard surfaces will damage the drivetrain. Try to avoid this. If your center diff is locked, be sure to press the button on the dashboard (Center diff) to the off(button out) position. (Yes, you didnt press the button, but your model automatically engages diff lock in 4lo) So dont engage 4lo on hard surfaces.
Try reversing a couple feet. This may free up the diff so that the lock can disengage. If this does not work, find a large patch of grass or gravel. Turn the steering to full lock(left or right, doesnt matter) and pull off. This should disengage the lock. It is good practice to engage the difflock at least once a month as this will keep the lockers lubricated enough so that they dont bind like yours have done.

Mitsubishi shogun has transmission warning light


if the shift is being made and the car is in gear it will not change ,in some cases it is necesary to reverse a few times to allow shifts to occur if this still fails you could have a sticky solonoid ,these are mounted on the r/f inner guard there are two of the next to each other make sure there is vacume at the solonoids as the car will allways fail in 4wd mode it requires vacume to allow it to disengage the front diff on start up,that is why there is a grinding noise if you switch off the motor and free wheel to a stop the front diff tries to engage

91 trooper stuck in neutral


possible range selection detent switch not working causing to get stuck some times in one range only and wont shift to other range 4wd light in dash just keeps flashing for about 10 seconds then goes to previous state this then can jam up 2wd 4wd lever that you then cannot move.
there are 3 switches 2 on trans/transferr case, 1 on front LH diff axle tube actuator (shift on fly). can cause damge to the electric actuator then on transferr case.
suggest you get a dealer to look at or some one that knows this system. is also vaccum operated on front diff shift on fly unit and there were 2 different systems fitted to these vehicles push button 4wd on dash and lever next to gear lever which i take is yours
