there is a way to do that.....all you have to do is go get the manual locking hubs and switch it over...not that hard....did it to a early 90s f150....pretty easy.

If your sure it is acually going into gear than check the auto hubs, they go bad alot. also you can with help from a 2nd person jack the truck up all 4wheels put the truck in 4x4 and drive and see if both drive shafts spin if they do its the hubs if the front one doesnt, its the transfer case

Is the system ESOF ( Electronic Shift On the Fly ) or MSOF ( Mechanical Shift On the Fly ) ?

If you have already tested to find the front drive shaft locks into place, and the front axle is the cause, looks to the front vacuum disconnect shift motor.
Item #10 in the parts diagram below :

Close up of it ( this is a picture from another person's bracket that broke ) :

Chances are the vacuum lines to the vacuum disconnect motor are cracked, the vacuum solenoids are not working correctly, or the vacuum to the solenoids is having an issue ( the reservoir ) :
Vacuum diagram for the shift motor
sscullys_52.jpg

The pink line is vacuum for 2WD operation ( unlocks the axle ) the light blue vacuum line is for 4WD operation ( locks the axle ).

You can test right at the vacuum disconnect motor with a vacuum gauge with the motor running. Unplug the shift motor, and check for vacuum right at the motor.

Could be the shift motor has a damaged diaphragm and not holding vacuum or has water in it ( saw that 1 time ).

Start with checking for vacuum. Also check the fuses for the vacuum solenoids, the power is always at the solenoid, ground is switched on and off by the GEM ( Generic Electronics Module ) to operate them

1994 ford ranger 4x4 hubs make grinding/clicking noise after taken out of four wheel drive


I think yours has the automatic locking hubs that slide over the the rotor hub. If this is the case than what has probably happened is a u-joint has gone bad and wiped out that auto hub.

Be prepared for some sticker shock on those hubs. they are not cheap. The usual fix for this is to replace the front axle ujoints and what ever hub is making the noise, hopefully just one.

if the actuateor is vacumed,you might have have a hose that came off or it has a split in it somewhere,check that.or if you have posilock hubs one or both may be wore out or lacking grease,they are easy to remove,just a hex wrench and snapring pliers is all you need,remove and inspect for obvious sighns of wear.

If you are seeing the front drive shaft turn,Then it is in four wheel drive,
Your truck has automatic lock in hubs,The most common problem with Rangers is that the lock in hubs get worn and wont keep the axle engaged to the wheel,
If you go to Auto zone they have new lock in hubs for around $50.00
Or you could up grade and get hubs that you manually turn and lock in.

1988 ford ranger push button four wheel drive an it wont engage all the wires are good it just clicks when u push the button.. what should i look for to make the four wheel drive work again it wont...


Start out with buying yourself a $25 book from the Parts House. The I would go to the front HUBS, secure & safety vehicle before you do anything, Clean, Inspect, Lune & Repair front Hubs as required, get the brakes while you're there. Check your drive line, axles, u-joints etc. Clean , repair , replace as needed. Check for Tranfer case Operation. Is there power going to the front Axle when 4WD is engaged? do you feel a change when you engage the Transfer Case? Have you checked the Power on the circuits? Have you Manual or Auto-locking Front Hubs? Answer all those Questions & read before you do anything.

1999 4x4 ranger comes out of four wheel drive


Put manual lockers in it. And remember, you have to back up 50 feet to lock in the hubs, automatic or manual. Not doing this could cause your problem.

99 Ford Ranger xlt 4x4 The 4 wheel drive won't always kick in Looks like the electrics are working but the hubs just won't always kick in.


I had the same problem w/ my 99. If you have auto hubs, they work off a vacuum pump which is located under your air filter box..check to make sure it is working..is that is working it's on to the hubs..the locking hubs are the black caps in the center of each from wheel..they snap on and off..hard to take off without breaking a few tabs..the seal one or both may not be holding the vacuum created by the motor under the airfilter box. if one of the hubs has a vacuum leak neither side will work, it's all or nothing..aside from the electric parts on the dash and side of transmition that's about everything there is to know about 1999 ranger four wheel system.

How do i replace front wheel bearing hub assembly front wheels pop and don,t engage when trying to put it in four wheel drive


First, you have to take the rotor off. To get the rotor off you need a special tool (a hub wrench - a socket with four little prongs). Take off the clip on the the hub and then the washers (3). Use the hub wrench to remove the 2 rings. Pull off the rotor. Take the outer bearing out of the rotor. To get the inner bearing out you have to take the seal off. You can usually pry the seal off with a screwdriver. Once the seal is off, you can pull the inner ring out. Reverse procedure to put back on. Remember to put bearing grease on the hub and new bearings.

06 F150 4 four wheel drive wont work


I have a 1994 ford f150, my 4 wheel drive keeps trying to engage by itself even without me touching the automatic hub button....at time you can even hear it engaging and disengaging by itself, the low range light even comes on (dimly)...what could be the cause? the transfer case motor looks good and so does the wiring.
