Turn vehicle on, with foot on brake put vehicle in NEUTRAL. Still holding brakes move 4x4 switch to 4 wheel drive, it should engage. The ECT snow is just s feather that make the transmission take off in 2nd gear so its not a fast take off and you wouldn't skid. Good Luck

I have a 99 zr2 Blazer and im having problems with 4lo. Some times it will go in perfect. Then others it will make a clanging noise and kick back out. The motor and cable have been replaced on transfer....


check the road surface you are on when you select the 4wd button. If you are on any surface that will not allow tyre slip ( hard surface ) then you will experience a torque wind up in the drive train that will cause your problems. 4wd should only be used on slippery surfaces - mud ,snow, ice, gravel-- and should be engaged at rest if on hard surface

2004 Buick Rainier four wheel is stuck in AWD drive all the time .


All wheel drive is just that-- All wheel drive-- not to be confused with 4 wheel drive . The difference is with AWD there is a 3rd diff in the transmission that allows the front and rear wheels to operate at different road speeds . When 4wd is selected that 3rd diff is locked and so both front and rear wheels drive at the same speed regardless of ups and downs in the road surface . This results in a torque wind up in the drive train and places load on "U" joints --splines --CV joints and gear teeth . The grinding on turning corners will be the CV joints trying not to flex because of the torque wind up . How to prevent this problem=== Do not use 4wd on hard road surfaces === as the tyres cannot slip to relieve the torque Restrict the 4wd use to snow , mud and loose surfaces TO fix the problem unselect 4wd drive and reverse several yards to release the pressure in the drive train and the actuator has a chance to pull the gear out of lock up. If that doesn't work check that the actuator is actually working

Clunking and whinning when locked in awd


check the cv joints for wear. check rear drive shaft for worn slip joint splines and "u" joint wear. When you lock in awd there is no centre diff to allow the variations between the wheels and so you are experiencing a torque build up between the front and rear diffs . This put stress on the entire drive chain so any looseness or worn parts will display noises. Remember that the awd lock should be only used on surfaces that allow the tyres to slip and relieve the stress ( dirt road---snow---mud--ice )

What is the four wheel drive switch for??


The switch is to put the vehicle into four wheel drive for off-road and increased traction on snow and ice.

ON THE 2008 FORD ESCAPE, WHEN THE ROADS ARE COVERED IN SNOW AND ICY, SHOULD THE TRACTION BUTTON BE PUSHED IN SO THAT THE DASH LIGHTS UP WITH "TRACTION". THIS BUTTON IS ALWAYS OFF, WHEN SHOULD IT...


This button turns the All-Wheel-Drive (AWD) function on and off. When the "TRACTION" light is on, the AWD function is on -- AWD should be on in snow / ice.

Just got H 2 2005 4 buttons 4 the 4 wheel drive


Use 2 wheels, the other 4wd low ,for climbing at slow speeds: 4wd high, for driving on low traction roads,like mud or snow,at medium speeds: 4wd auto full time all wheel drive, for highway speeds on slippery surfaces, like rain or light snow.

How do i use the 4wd on my rav4? and when?


if its awd then you never need to switch to 4wd as you always drive in AWD. if its selectable there will either be a shift lever or push button to engage it. 4wd kills some fuel economy. use it where traction is bad - ice- rocks- mud- sand- snow- dirt. some 4wd will become unstable in some circumstances as well. be careful.
