Every time i push the button for the four wheel hi it makes the click noise in the front but DOES NOT ENGAGE. only the back tire spins


Depending on the year, it is not posted, it may be a bad transfer case motor. The clicking you are hearing is the motor trying to engage transfer case & front axle. It looks like a windshield wiper motor & when it gets power & works properly it engages front wheels. Again, depending on the year, may be 4 wheel drive actuator or switches bad on front axle or transfer case.

My 2008 Dodge 1500 5.7 auto, front axle wont engage,the transfer case engages


is the shaft from the transfer case to the front axle spinning? Check to see that your locker solenoid is still plugged in there's a plug on the drivers side rear of the engine about 10 inches from the starter that's the plug to the locker solenoid. If its plugged and your front drive shaft from the transfer case spins your locker solenoid is likely bad.

4 wheel drive wont engage have installed new vacume control transfer engages but no power to front wheels


crawl under vehicle and look to make sure axles are engaged fully into differential, my left axle popped out on mine and i had same trouble, I also thought my vac actuator was bad, where the CV shaft bolts to the output axle shaft there should be almost no travel between wheel and differential if there is use a pry bat and hammer to fully seat axle into differential.

Four wheel drive wont engage. Tranfer case is


Sounds like you either have a vaccum leak or your 4 wheel drive actuator is not working to engage the front differential.On my 98 ram there is a black and red plastic lines that are used for the vaccum lines. They are underneath and go from the transfer case to the front axle, check to see if one or both might be cracked or broke completely.If the lines are good then it could be your actuator on the front axle. A new one is about $93 at advance auto parts and not very hard to replace

91 s-10 wont go into 4 wd at transfer case i want to mannually engage transfer case


if you engage the 4wd in the cab and it doesnt engage, but you can move the arm at the front axle and then it does engage, you probably have a vacuum leak causing the actuator to not work. That model truck was bad about that. There is now an aftermarket kit you can install that works manually from inside the cab to engage/disengage the front axle.

4wd light flashes and have replaced the front actuator switch and the encoder(transfer case motor) and nothing has changed. it sounds like it wants to kick in but never fully engages. I have had people on...


after looking at the schematics for this vehicle, I can say with great certainty that you might have something wrong in your front axle on a straight axle model that wont let the servo engage the front axle. Now if you have independant front suspension, then where the servo motor goes into the transfer case could be the problem. pull the servo motor from the case/axle and look at the engaging mechanism. You are looking for worn parts that could cause binding or broken parts. This servo motor gets its command voltage from the ecm. The signal for the ecm generates from the transmission and your in cab switch. If you can hear the motor trying to engage, then all the other factors are working up to the motor arm. The light is just a by product of the ecm trying to engage the front axle

1990 jeep wrangler front driveline engages but tires dont.


check you vacuum motor and vacuum lines going to the vacuum motor from the top of the transfer case. when u engage your 4WD the valves on the transfer case are opened by a switch on the transfer case. the lines coming from the switch cross the top of the transmission and up the passenger side of the engine compartment. these lines will be red, blue, green and yellow, and often covered by a black sheeth, about 1inch in diameter. check these lines to make sure they are connected. if they are not, the vacuum motor will not engage your front axle. your front driveshaft will still spin, because the transfer case is engaged as normal, but the right front axleshaft is a 2 piece system engaged by this vacuum motor. if they lines are messed up, the motor will not engage the axle collar connecting the 2-piece axle. if your vacuum motor is working, then you might have a broken collar, or perhaps a broken axle shaft. but it's probably just the vacuum hoses or the motor :) i hope that helps!
