Not sure what to tell you without seeing it for myself so all i can do is give you some ideas to check,make sure you dont have a rock or rocks stuck up front by your axles,also if you have been driving through heavy snow it could be froze up front,if you had a warm garage to push it into to check these that would help,and if your shifter isnt stuck hopefully your tranny didnt go bad,but check your rack and pinion as well

My right front wheel brake is jammed while driving


Could be a stuck caliper, a bad flex hose at the wheel, a faulty antilock brake hydraulic control unit (depending on how your vehicle is equipped).

1987 dokota appears to go in four wheel drive but all wheels do not pull or move when stuck in snow or mud.


Technically you do not have 4 wheel drive, you have two wheel drive (possibly three-wheel drive). When you engage 4WD you direct power to the front and rear differentials. The front differential is an open style which means that only one wheel will drive, and the rear differential is likely the same type which means that you will only have two wheels driving the vehicle (one front, one rear). If the rear differential is a "posi-trac" or "limited-slip", then both axles should lock and drive the vehicle (hence, three-wheel drive), but this style differential is not as common as it once was.

Best and cheapest to fix is to replace vacuum lockers with manual lockers. It is easy to do. Only 6 bolts per front wheel. This is the most trusted way of 100% engagement.

4 wheel drive light is on in my jeep


vacumn pod on the front axel is stuck on. Jack up the front wheels spin both tires at the same time and see if the front drive shaft turns. If it does the 4x4 on the axel is engaged. The front drive shaft on these should not turn when vacumn pod is disengaged. YJ's have a split axel on the right side inner axel shaft.

Front axle stuck engaged


w9fro..In1995, and other model years, the actuator used to engage the transfer case into four wheel drive is oil filled with a heating element.
When you select four wheel drive the element heats up, the oil expands and engages the transfer case. Unfortunately if the actuator fails, the truck remains in four wheel drive. GM has an improved actuator so the problem does not repeat.
As always, check the basics, power, grounds and switch at floor select before replacing the actuator.
Also, if the truck is truly stuck in four wheel drive, you can tell by turning the truck in a tight circle. If the front end wants to "bunny hop" it is definitely engaged.
Best of luck, let me know.
Regards,

There is an electric motor that engages drive.  Mine was stuck and a mechanic beat it w a hammer while I was in vehicle w brake on in drive pushing the diff 4wd buttons.  It freed up and started working fine!!  It looks like a small starter under car on passenger side. Or buy one on ebay  for cheap and replace it
