Question about Cars & Trucks
My 4 wheel drive continues to change to 4L and 4H and then 2Wheel Drive and 4Wheel Drive whenever I press a button on the switch. I recently had the transfer case rebuilt and now am having the issues with the 4 wheeldrive not acting properly. I bought a new switch and attempted to replace it and it seemed to switch between gears with no hesitation on the switch but when I started moving the truck got stuck in 4L and didn't want to come out. Finally after cutting the truck off and turning it back on the truck seemed to come out and back into 2 wheel drive. I then RE-installed the old switch just so I could atleast get back to where I was in the first place. I am not sure that the switch isn't the problem... because I may not have installed it properly. Should I disconnect any battery terminals or do anything before replacing the switch that would help to actuate the switch or is it just a simple plug and play deal and something else is wrong.

Have you been thru a car wash lately?
There is a sensor in the trans that senses what gear mode you're in...it either is working or it isn't....
are you still under warranty??

hey there i cant tell you what you are missing but i can tell you how to disengage the front wheels . ok you have a vacum line that runs right under the battery and a line that comes up from the front diff. to the same place ( you may have to remove batt and batt tray to get full access to this) un bolt it and temporaly put batt and batt tray back in start it up and decompress this and see if it comes out .... you should here clunking noise if it goes back in ... if thats the case just pull that big vaccum line off .... to test get all four tires off the ground and have some one put it in drive but dont hit the gas it should turn on its own ...if that dont work check the cable that runs down to the differental
