Question about 2005 Ford F-150

1 Answer

The four wheel drive will not engage on my 2005 f150 even after having a new actuator put on what else could it be?

4x4 light comes on and the truck makes a horrible noise when trying to engage.

There is a body control module the hooked to the fuse box under the dash. that box runs the 4 wheel drive. you need the numbers off ,and it is cheap to get the bcm on e bay that is where I get mine from

    The truck needed new hubs and springs. When lifted the fourwheel drive would engage...but on the ground it would not. Thanks so much for getting back to me!

SOURCE: 01 f150 4x4 4whell drive will not engage lights on dash come on

I am going to assume that you have auto 4x4, and not manual shift base model.. it just sounds like the servo motor that shifts between 2x4 and 4x4, has gone bad

question:
does it still engage into low range, even though it is stuck in 2x4?

SOURCE: 4/04 ford f150 4x4 front axle actuator won' t stay disengaged

Even though you checked the vacuum lines and found no leaks it does not mean there isn't a problem. The check valve in the line closest to the firewall actuator is probably your problem. Had the same issue replaced this line and solved it. The check valves in the vacuum lines are your best next guess.

Is your tyre's all the same size. Incorrect tyre's will change the racio from back to front and both driveshaft's are'nt turning at the same speed then it will grind. When trying to take it out of 4WD their will be preasure on the driveshaft's and this will leave if hard to disengage. Put it in 4WD drive it forward try the gearshift if it's hard to move then reverce a bit and try again it should come out easily. For all 4WD systems it is recumended thet the vehicle is reversed a few mitre's tto fully disengage the 4WD

4x4 does not engage in my 04 ford f150 4x4 new model. tried looking for do it yourself books but no luck


check to see if there is noise coming from either side of the front wheels. jack all four wheels and turn on four wheel drive, if one of the front wheel is not turning then the actuator on that wheel is bad. the actuator is vacuum activated so also check the vacuum hoses go to the wheels.

There is a solenoid (popper thingy) that engages your four wheel drive. It is bad, it costs around eighty bucks, but is easy to fix. Go underneath your truck and look at your transfer case, it should have a wire or two going to it, that wire connects to the solenoid. Remove the solenoid, put the new one in and your light, and your four wheel drive will work again. This is a common problem with that type of four wheel drive system in the year ranges of 88-97.

I have a 1994 ford f150, my 4 wheel drive keeps trying to engage by itself even without me touching the automatic hub button....at time you can even hear it engaging and disengaging by itself, the low range light even comes on (dimly)...what could be the cause? the transfer case motor looks good and so does the wiring.
