How do I use the 4 wheel drive on my 1998 Ford explorer. It has a switch that can be turned to auto, 4 low, or 4 high


you can switch into and out of the auto or 4 high modes while moving.

If you want to use 4 low you must stop and place your transmission in neutral. While stopped, turn the switch to 4 low. To get out of 4 low, again stop and in neutral switch back to desired mode. DO NOT SWITCH TO 4 LOW WHILE MOVING!

1996 Ford Explorer front end makes noises after putting it in 4wd lo and red lining the engine, whats wrong with it?


You have to be in park or be in drive or moving slowly to
engage 4 wd

You can not have the trans in neutral to use 4wd or have the
transfer in neutral to shift trans

Either combo you grind gears in trans or transfer

4 Wheel drive does not engage on my 2002 Ford Explorer (6 cyl). Nothing happens when I push either the 4 High button or the 4 Low button. Any suggestions on what it could be? Worked fine last winter!


Could be the actuator motor on the transfer could be stuck or bad connection. Check to see if your gett power to the plug on the transfer case.
