On my 01 grand vitara i changed the 4wd pump behind the bumper the indicator light for 4wd now comes on but 4wd still does not engage


what does engage mean.? it fails on ICE or DIRT

engaged, means, (mechanically) one tire front and rear have traction

with LSD front and rear all 4 have traction and spin on ice

does it?

part time 4wd dont work on dry pavement so that is my 1st question

why not state, what you are driving on, and what does engage means

by what means did you check engaged.????



this car is not AWD, do you know the difference from AWD and

Part time 4wd? the diff, is there is center differential. on part time

so must be (true test) tested on ice, or dirt.



see the videos here, or a demo.

or on ice. ice you will see front and rear both working,

on dry plave ment all you get is windup... very very bad to do

in traffic, causing you to wreck and other to get , hurt.

if you understand all that, then do say what you mean

ENGAGED.

if you know what windup is and it dont, then you are correct

its not engaged. (jack left front tire up, engage it and feel it? by turning the the tire, it must fight you)

front up, rear down. in 4wd.

here it it is again.

http://www.fixkick.com/part-time-test.html



if it dont engage for real,. may i introduce you to the FSM

its in my hand now.

page 3B-3 . see it?

switch closes in xfr case

ECU sees that and powers up the air pump.

if pressure is good the Ecu is told that, if wrong you get scanned DTC code saying just that (obd2 scan too)

the pump has 2 shut off modes, good pressure. and fails to hold for 10seconds. (prevents pump from running all time)

if all the above works the Lamp glow by PCM command.

if you have full pressure , the lock in the front axle is now locked

no pressure, no lock yes full pressure it must lock or the axle

actuator is bad.

the page 3B6 says pressure is 4.25 to 6.40

page 3b10 is the acutator test. and the TRUE ENGAGE TEST

front wheels off ground.

apply 4.2psi with shop air and reg.at the acutator nipple

1: you spin one tire, the other spins backwards (GOOD test)

kill the 4.2 psi supply air

2: you spin one tire.

and the other tire, does nothing, (remains stationary)

pass. test 2.



test one is locked

test 2 is 2wd.



the other tests are on ice or dirt.

does that help?

Four wheel drive actuator


I would try taking the right tire and cv axle off there next to the oil pan is a part that the axle slides through.it has a connector that engages the axle or 4x4 but if it is dry it will need to be replaced or checked out.it is kind of hard to take all of that off but check it out

1992 Pajero 4wd system attempts to engage randomly, 4wd indicator lights blink


Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS, TPMS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

Legend of Abbreviations. ABS Anti-lock brake system. TCS Traction control system, TCM Transmission control module, SRS Supplemental restraint system, BCM Body control module. TPMS Tire Pressure Monitor System

2007 rav 4 v8 4wd light stays on and seems that 4 wheel drive is staying engaged


Make sure that all four tires are exactly the same height, (not necessarily the same name brand) using a yard stick or what ever means possible, to measure the height and make sure all four tires have the same air pressure. ( using the same tire gage on all four tires). And then go from there.
