    Have you checked all vacuum hose connections and electrical plugs on axle and transfer case Make sure hoses are connected, plugs plugged in and contacts clean.. Once verified you can begin checking shift components if necessary.

Is there any fluid in there. it maybe time to service the front and rear. Jiffy Lube is pretty cheap and you can see them drain and refill them.

Chevy 2002 2500 series, 4x4 will not engage, when shifted into 4wd a kind of grinding noise comes from the front like gears are not meshing.


No hubs on 2002 Chevy 2500. I'd check the front axle actuator (engages front axle when 4WD is engaged). Belive it's on the passage side axle tube of front differential. Could be wrong, but that's what it sounds like. Or the front ring/pinion is shot. They don't turn when not in 4wd.

How does the 4wd lock work on awd 2013 kia sportage


Its automatic. AWD is different than 4WD. AWD keeps all the wheels working independently. Where 4WD keeps all wheels working no matter what. No need to worry about anything on an AWD set up. Speed doesnt matter, however in my opinion stopping and letting it kick in or out is best. Just in case a part acts up it wont do anything odd at high speeds.

Center differential


IF you are in constant 4wd then you will not have a centre diff unless you have an AWD. The difference is that AWD transfer cases have a centre diff that allows different road speeds between the front and rear diffs as in going over speed bumps and dips ion the road It is the same operation in the front and rear diffs that allow one wheel to go faster than the other when cornering. However in 4wd drive there is no diff action in the transfer case and both front and rear axles drive at the same speed regardless of speed bumps and dips in the road . This action produces what is known as torque wind up which results in the handling characteristics. This torque wind up places stress on all the drive line train and results in failures such as .that you describe.. This wind up is not noticeable when driving on loose surfaces slippery surfaces or in mud as it is allowed to escape when the wheels spin . If you have an AWD with diff lock capabilities then check that the diff lock is operating correctly

4L and 4H lights flashes when you try to engage either of them in 05 Isuzu Rodeo


this is a part time 4wd, not AWD.
and as such must not be run on dry ice free pavement.
so post if car is on said pavement.
test 4wD in DIRT, does it work now, or not?
if you keep doing it on dry pavement this happens.
see here

read the wiki on all system. and see what you can do and can not.

its not AWD, and has no CENTER differentiable gears.

2001 Subaru Legacy Lancaster is it 2WD or 4WD?


easiest way to tell if it is 2 wheel or 4 wheel is look under the car. From the front of the vehicle just off center (could be left or right) there will be a differential. (much like what you see under the rear of a pickup truck. If you see this it's a 4wd or awd. The difference between awd and 4wd is- 4wd is either front or rear wheel drive with the ability to (now days) push a button and "lock in" the other axel. Awd is at all times, all 4 wheels are working together to move the vehicle.

Front axle 4x4 will not ingage


On the front differential there is a thermal actuator. It engages your front differential. In parts catalogs they are called 4wd actuator. they are not easy to replace.

How does my 4x4 push button locker work in my 1989 chevy K1500?


That depends a lot on how your truck is equipped. GM uses several different 4 wheel systems including AWD, Part-Time 4WD, Full-Time 4WD, and ON-Demand AWD. Then there is another version used on some trucks that is a combination of 4WD and On Demand AWD. - it gets a little confusing but each system as slightly different charachteristics.

Genericly speaking, if you have the push-buttons on your dash that say "4-HI", "4-LO", and "2HI" and/or Auto-4WD , the transfer case has an electronicly-controlled stepper motor which shifts the transfer case into the selected mode. An electric solenoid/actuator then engages/disengages the front differential for 2-Wheel or 4-Wheel modes. One push of the button and it shifts the transfer case and engages the front differential.

That's much easier than the old days when you had to stop the truck, get out (Sometimes in the middle of a big mud hole) and lock the front hubs then get back in and play with the lever in the floor to get the transfer case to shift into the desired mode.

I have a 1999 Expedition. We had a snow storm I've had to put it in 4WD on occassion. Now that all the snow is gone, I put the switch back in AWD. the 4x4 light goes off, but its still in 4WD. any...


it sounds like your front automatic locking hubs are stuck locked try putting it back in four backing up a little bit put it in neutral and take it off 4wd and back up again if this doesnt work you will need to replace the hubs in the front
