In dash 4x4 switch

Is there a fuse for the four wheel drive on the 1998 suburban and if so where can i find it. the in-dash switch doesn't light up anymore so i can't tell if it's working or not.

First you need to verify that your truck goes into 4X4 HI or LOW; try putting it in 4X4 Low you will be able to tell by feeling the truck engage and not being able to go very fast.
If it doesn't then it could be the lock out selenoid; I had this problem when I bought my truck from my friend. Luck for me it was still under the extended warranty. If the truck goes into 4X4 then it could be a bad bulb. Good Luck

I have a 1998 f 150 4x4 and four wheel drive wont engage no lights either


Have an assistant, lie SAFELY under the truck with a small hammer and GENTLY tap the motor on the 4X4 unit while you engage and disengage the 4X4 switch. Key on engine off in Park with foot brake set and brake pedal depressed.

1998 Ranger wont go in four wheel drive just makes a clicking noise the fuses are good can you help


If it lights up on the dash that it is in 4x4 the 4x4 motor is probably bad.It is located on the transfer case and has 3 10mm bolts that hold it in place.Taker a hammer and peck on it and see if it locks in 4x4.If it does the motor is the problem and needs replaced.

1998 f150 4x4 not working


Check BJB ( aka Battery Junction Box, Engine Compartment fuse panel ) Fuse #17. This is the power to the Transfer Case shift relay, which powers the Shift motor in the Transfer case and power to the magnetic clutch coil ( via the transfer case relay ).

The other fuse to check is the CJB ( aka Central Junction Box, cab fuse panel ) Fuse #23.

If both fuses check good, time to check for power on the connector for the shift relay and the shift motor. The power from BJB Fuse # 17 is the Dark Green w/ Light Green stripe ( this is hot at all times ).
The old school test is to lightly hit the back of the transfer case, to see if the shift motor is hung up.
Here are the diagrams, so you can see what I am talking about.
