Some times the truck has to be put in the opisite direction the for wheel drive was driven in last. so if ya were going forward and you have auto locking hubs then you need to drive irt backwards till lights go out. and if you have driven a long way with it like that then you might have to back up far but it should unlock those hubs. if not then on transfer case there is a small motor that engages and you will need to remove that motor and manually move selector to 2h.

89 bronco ii won't go into 4x4 or low range


ON LEVEL GROUND
With the transmission selector in "park", start the motor.
With your foot on the brake pedal (steady-constant pressure), move the transmission selector gear to neutral- then turn the 4 X 4 selector knob to 4-wheel drive high. Wait for the 4 X 4 engagement.
Once it is in 4-wheel drive high, with the transmission selector still in neutral, quickly pump the brake peddle twice, keeping you foot on the brake pedal on the second pump, turn the 4 X 4 selector knob from high range to low range. The transfer case should then change from 4-wheel drive high to low.
Electronics being what they are, you sometimes have to repeat the process. You may even have to inch forward or backward.
[I have an '01 Excursion and an '05 F250 with 4 X 4 on the fly...I miss my '97 F250 with the manual 4 X 4 shift on-the-floor!]
Anyway, check the fuse panel for any blown fuses.
Double check to make sure that the problem is not just blown 4 X 4 lights on the instrument cluster. With the nob turned to 4-wheel drive, have a second person- a spotter, check to see if the drive shaft to the transfer case is moving. If it isn't, you have to delve into the troubleshooting process.
Check the solenoids, vacuum hoses, vacuum actuator, and transmission range sensor on the transfer case. .

you cannot run your truck normally in 4x4 low!!!! the low is designed to go slow slow.try shifting into neutral gear on column tap the high 4x4 then shift to reverse,back up 15feet then shift to drive.it should go into high 4x4 then if you want to go back to 2wheel high shift to neutral tap the 4x4 high until the light goes off,shift to reverse and back up 15feet then shift to drive and the 4wheel drive lights should all be off. then you'll be in 2x2 rear wheel drive. thank you for choosing fixya.com

How to use the 4x4


well, if you are sitting still it is recommended you put vehicle in neutral and select 4x4 indicator to desired posistion..... 4 high...4 low...or 2high (auto) when you select 4 low the top speed is not to exceed 25 mph. It is a very low gear for crawling or pulling. At any time you need 4 low gear you must stop trk, shift to neutral and select 4 low. The same procedure is done to change from 4 low to 4 hi or 2 hi. if not done this way internal trans, transfer case or driveline failure will occure. At any time you may shift 4x4 selector from (auto) or 2 hi to 4 hi, and 4 hi to 2 hi or( auto).****** But note, do not make shifts while tires are spinning or under power (acceleration)******* While driving you can make shifts at any speed between 2 hi (auto) and 4 hi and back to 2 hi. release throttle a little and select. you do not have to take foot off throttle all the way! just enough that truck is not under a power, load acceleration. If tires are spinning or you are on the gas and you select gears from 2 & 4 high the posibilities of severe damage can result. Also note that 4x4 is not recommended on dry pavement. When 4x4 is being used also take care as to the handling and the steering characteristics change, On tight turns the front wheels will bind and possibly **** a little. If you have never had a 4x4 before, obey what i have told you untill you get the experiance and you will be fine. HAPPY TRAILS.... AND A LITTLE 4X4 FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My kia soernto 4x4 light flishing


I assume that the vehicle has a rotating knob on the left side of the dash for four wheel drive. It may have been put into 4 low by mistake. To get it out, start the vehicle and put it in drive, select 4 low on the 4 wheel drive selector, take your foot off the brake and get the vehicle rolling at a walking pace (1-2 m.p.h.) then move the selector to 4 high, stop the vehicle and move selector to 2 high

Wont disengage out of 4 wheel drive 1998 ford ranger first time its stuck in 4 low we have backed up turned switch numerous times shut it off and restarted


Be sure to put the truck in neutral, while engine is running, while you disengage from 4 wheel drive (low) to 4 wheel drive (high) and then finally to 2 wheel drive. It is critical to shift transmission into neutral when switching out of 4WD Low, as indicated in your owner's manual. Hopefully, this will help to FixYa problem!

MY 4x4 on my excursion is stuck and does not want to come off how do i get it to come of and back to 2w drive?


Without the ability to diagnose the problem further, obvious things need to be eliminated. First step, with engine running and foot on brake, shift transmission to neutral. Then slowly turn Four Wheel Drive (4WD) selector knob out of 4WD Low to 4WD High, and then finally to 2 Wheel Drive. "4x4" and "LOW RANGE" indicator lights on the instrument panel should no longer be illuminated. If this does not work, you should visit FixYa for further help or take it to the shop for proper diagnosis. Hopefully, this will help you to FixYa problem!

I have never driver a 4 wheel drive. I am going from portland oregon to phoenix az. not sure how or when to switch to four wheel. does the truck need to be in park? etc.


Do you have manual locking hubs on the front? If you do, you have to turn them to 'lock' position. If you have automatic hubs, you skip that step. Never shift into 4x4 low range while moving. You must come to a complete stop to shift in or out of low range. Regular 4x4 (high range) can be engaged while you are moving. Let off the gas, and put it in 4x4 high range, do the same to go back to 2 wheel drive. Vehicles that are part time 4x4 (can be shifted in and out of 4x4) should never be driven in 4x4 while on a dry surface, as you can cause excessive wear or even failure of the system. So only use it in snow, off road, etc. Have a safe trip!

Grinding in and out of 4 wheel drive


You say 'new' truck, 09? or new used? I have had 3 Fords, 3 w/ manual trans. case, if you go into 4x4 Low range, you must come to a complete stop before shifting the trans. case to 4x4 mode, and I always put trans (automatic) in neutral before slipping into 4x4, it engages smoothly, no grinding. 4x4 high range can be put in while moving, but I would let off the gas pedal, shift to 4x4 high range, then resume accelerating. If there is any grinding going on doing it as above, something isn't right. Check the trans. case fluid level also, to make sure that's not an issue.

1988 suzuki samurai WONT MOVE


First thing just try to push or pull the 4x4 lever if you get it to move and it feels like it went into some gear try to drive the truck.If this works look on the shifter for the 4x4 and put it in 2 wheel drive (H2 is two wheel drive,H4 is 4x4 high,and L4 is 4x4 low range).Make sure you have the clutch depresed when you try to move the 4x4 lever.If you try this stuff with no fix try and look for clutch adjustment on the transmision you may need to adjust it or your clutch is bad.
