4wheel drive will not engage

Manual shift from 2wheel to 4wheel

Posted by on

  • jabradford55 Feb 05, 2009

    4wd shifter works fine on a standard/manual shift transmission but does not lock in tires. Mechanic suggested I have lines that have been pulled loose from heavy snow and ice, my problem is I can't find any lines loose and the tires still do not engage.

I had this happen to my 2002 Sportage 2 years ago. Check the vacuum lines running from the transfer case to the hubs, one of mine was cracked, and therefor the system cannot '****' the locking hubs in place. It cost me 50 cents to fix.

Hello, If you have auto locking hubs you may want to check the springs inside the hub. The may be all greased up or they may be broken like mine. I changed the spring and cleaned the other one and they worked fine. Hope this helps

try turning the steering at a complete stop fullly left and right. If the steering is resistnt then you are in 4 wheel drive. vehicles in 4whl drive don't like to steer unless they are moving.

96 explorer disengages 4wh low but does not engage 2wheel


Does it shift to 4wd high range ? If so then shift to 2wd . What is going on here is the transfer case motor is stopping due to the motor position sensor has gone bad which means that you replace the transfer case motor assembly. But if you wish to make it a 2wd for awhile then remove motor and manually turn shaft . This can be done by raising and supporting rear axle truck in park remove motor turn shaft slowly with pliers and rotating the play in drive shaft. There are stamped markings on back of case showing gear positions..

4x4 wont engage when shifter is put in all 4wheel positions drives fine in 2wheel drive


Can you supply more information? year and model of vehicle, does it have an actual shifter lever or buttons? and what are all the available options to shift into?

If you have a honest mechanical manual 4x4 that you reach down to the floor and shift into 4x4 with a lever, and 4x4 doesnt work you got problems with your transfer case or you got some bent or missing linkages.

if you have a push button system for 4x4, then you could have a number of problems, bad actuator motor, bad wiring, etc.

1996 f150 4x4 e4od automatic stuck in 2nd or limp mode while in 2wheel drive or 4wheel high,when i put it in 4wheel low the transmission shifts in all gears. At fist I was told the transmission was bad,so...


Wow,
That's odd ,push button shift I suppose . Ford doesn't have a 2nd gear limp mode ,I don't think.
Has to be the manual linkage at the shifter,try manually shifting? still no low?

How to engage the 4 wheel drive on a 1991 jeep cherokee


You can "shift on the fly" at up to 45mph - just let off the gas and pull the shifter back to 4hi. DO NOT try going to 4lo while moving.

Another way is to stop, put it in neutral, and pull the shifter back to 4hi or 4lo.

This is vacuum activated - so if you can't get it to engage - the vacuum motor is failed - or you have a disconnected or rotted vacuum line.

Cherokees have the command - track. You'll see a lever next to the transmission shifter that has letters 2H, 4H, N, 4L on it.
You can shift from 2H (2wheel drive high range) to 4H (4wheel drive high range) at any legal speed.
If it's an automatic, I recommend just taking your feet off of both pedals, so there's not a lot of torque being passed thru the transfer case.
If it's a standard I recommend stepping on the clutch when you shift, but it's not necessary.
To go to Neutral just pull the shifter back one more position to the N position. To shift into 4L (4wheel drive lo range) you must be stopped.
I also recommend shifting the transmission into neutral when you do this. Push the shifter to the right, then pull it back.

Thanks!

My 2004 gmc envoy, will shift into 4wheel drive high and low, but will not shift into 2wheel drive high. Is there anything I can try before I have to take it in to a repair shop ?


I would say it is the encoder motor. Had a similar problem on a Blazer. Had that replaced and it solved the problem. Could be the same on the Envoy.

4 wheel drive lights flashes but then returns to 2wheel drive -- some time it will lock in 4w low but both 4w hi and 4w low lights are on --- have new tccm module.


It is the shift motor for the 4wheel drive - only problem is that a shop has to program the new shift motor to the blazer or it will keep doing the same thing
