4 wheel drive only engage when cold

The 4 wheel drive system on my Trooper Citation works great... but only when starting from cold or within say 5 minutes driving . When all is warm I can push the electric switch until I am blue in the face but the 4 wheel drive light will only flash, it will not stay as a constant illumination. Only two wheel drive will be engaged. Any ideas please

SOURCE: 1993 Isuzu Trooper auto locking hubs not engaging

Just have your auto - locking hub cleaned and use your 4wd more often, it get stock usually for non usage. dont use grease after cleaning, use oil or thick silicone oil.

Sounds like your auto hubs need to be looked at.

Just press the 4wd button on the dash at any speed up to about 40mph and press again to come out .
When you turn the key on and the oil and battery lights are on the little green 4wd light should be on too if its flashing or not on check your fuses in the drivers footwell.

Tod light on in middle


There is nothing wrong with the system. When the TOD is in auto it will only engage the front wheels when the rear wheels lose traction. Newer small SUVs have just the opposite, they are in front wheel drive until they lose traction and then engages the rear. Isuzu was ahead of its time with the TOD system.

What's your problem?01 isuzu trooper 3.0L 4 wheel drive was working but its not now.the green light is on solid when ignition is on but when started and dash button pushed in the green light flash

I have a 1999 Isuzu Trooper and when I hit the auto 4 wheel drive button it blinks and doesn't engage. The 4 wheel drive works fine. Any ideas what the problem maybe??


While driving, apply the foot brake and press the 4x4 button. If it engages, it can be bad auto locking hubs, or a bad torque converter. This is the same problem I am having right now but I was able to the get the 4x4 to work by doing what I described above. I am going to take off the wheels and check the hubs and eventually work toward the torque converter. I'll keep you updated.

1989 isuzu trooper right front wheel clicking and does not engage in 4 wheel drive (when all four wheels are in the air)


Check the automatic locking hub on the right side. BEWARE: You MUST have the appropriate special service tools for this job!!!!!

The vehicle will not engage in 4WD operation when the vehicle is off the ground, as the automatic locking front hubs require front wheel load to engage. When the hubs DO lock, it is normal to hear 2 to 3 soft clicks. Anything after that indicates a problem.

If memory serves, there is a cam bushing behind the plate that will wear out, and if the plate is worn out, the hub clicks and will not engage.

1998 isuzu trooper torque on demand lights go off when truck stops moving


It is Torque On Demand. When you are stopped there is no need for the front end to be engaged, no demand. Once you start moving, the lights should begin working as the demand for four wheel drive engagement increases, if the conditions require four wheel drive. It's the way the system works. Enjoy!
