Four wheel drive on isuzu rodeo

When i push the four wheel drive button it keeps blinking and wont engage. it only engages when i do not need it. i have pressed the button occasionally to see if it engages most of the time it does. but usually when i really need it it does not engage. is there like a engagement solenoid in these that could cause this? any advice would be very helpful.

SOURCE: 1997 Isuzu Rodeo. four-wheel drive

There's a vaccum switch on your front axle thats probably corroded and stuck. It's common, especially if you don't use very often. There could be other problems but this is most common. Of course check to see if the vaccum lines are still attached. Mines bad too and I could only find it at the dealer. It was $180.00. If your mechanically inclined, read about this on isuzuforums.com and buy manual front hubs and by pass this system. New warn hubs are only $80.00 and much stronger, this is a very easy modification.

I have 2003 RA Holden Rodeo 3.0 ltr T/Diesel. The 2 front wheels don't seem to be engaging when i put it into 4wd (high or low range). I can hear the high and low range click in when i press the buttons...


Does yours have AUTO hubs, there are some luxory models have auto hubs, these rely on difference in drive on the axles,(wheel spin) others have manual locking hubs, these actually need to be engaged manually, these require you to twist the centre of the hub to engage and disengage the front hubs, these sometimes require you to reverse to disengage properly, Rodeo had both depending on model. Happy New Year

4wd how to enguage


make sure your in nutural, or park then if you have hub locks turn them to locking position. then shift small shifter if available into 4 wheel low or high. or may have just a push button to engauge. then shift into low or high. then you may use your regular stick to shift or just shift into drive w automatic.

Four wheel drive wont engage


If you have push button 4-Wheel Drive, it is recommended that you use it every once in a while, in order to keep gunk, rust, and corrosion to build up on moving parts. The mostly likeley (though not definite) reason would be that you let the 4-wheel drive unused for so long that corrosion has built up on the parts and the actuator that engages the 4-Wheel Drive doesn't have the power to engage it past the corrosion. You'll need to take it in to be cleaned, or to have parts replaced. In the future, every month or so, engage 4-Wheel Drive and drive around in some mud, grass, sand, or any other loose ground for a bit, just to keep the parts moving and clean.

The service Four wheel drive light is to alert the operator the system is not being read properly by the ECU.

If the ECU loses contact with or position of the Transfer case actuator motor the service light will come on. Same thing goes for the front diff actuator.

So it may be a bad switch, sensor, or an actual problem in the 4WD linkage. This is not a Oil Change light that you can ignore a few extra weeks - it indicates a problem that should be taken care of ASAP to avoid costlier problems down the road.
Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated!!

Four wheel drive in cold


It is due to the cold weather,The fluid is to thick when cold for the actuator to engage the 4wd.
