Question about 2003 Ford F250 Super Duty Crew Cab

1 Answer

My 7.3 liter will not shift on the fly into 4X4 low. I can manually lock the hubs, the left manual hub is very hard to turn, and can't tell if it is in high or low as there are no marking on the hubs and the dash light doesn't come on. When I raise the front end and spin the tires, the left feels like it may have a bearing going out.

Hub locks are worn out, especially if you cant turn them. And its not high and low. Its either auto?lock for switch style shift, or free /lock for old style floor shift. also hub seals could be worn or vacuum system not working.

4x4 K1500 Chevy Truck, 4 wheel drive repair instructions


There are a number of different hub systems so this may not work but it has worked for me on both auto and manual locking hubs. On a flat surface without traffic. Put the trans into neutral, shift the transfer case into 4x4, shift the trans into reverse and back the truck up 15-20 feet. Completely stop and shift trans into drive. See if this has locked the hubs in. If not, you can also try following the same instructions except shifting into 4wd low. Sometimes the hubs need a "bump" to get them to slip into place. Keep In mind that if the 4 wd low select works, you need to shift it back into 4 wd high before continuing! When taking the truck out of 4wd to 2wd, I recommend the same, shift to neutral, select 2wd, back truck up, shift back to drive and check. Its entirely possible that your hubs need maintenance (they're often overlooked) but hopefully this will get you going. Please let me know if thus worked or if I can offer other suggestions. Good luck!

I have a 1993 ford f150 4x4 i cant get it out of 4 wheel drive it still drive in 4wd how do i fix this problem


if it has automatic lock in hubs only!! start truck, put truck in neutral, push button for 2x2 shift into reverse,back up 5to 10 feet,truck should shift back into 2x2 automatically. shift into drive and the 4x4 light should go off. if you have manual lock hubs you''ll need to unlock those manually on the 2 front wheels.w/truck in neutral and emergency brake on or someone holdling brake inside truck,go to front and rotate the locking hubs to front tire or wheels in centerof hub to free wheel.they will be marked,or should be. if not,then try turning the center of hub switch counter clockwise until it stops turning,then go to passenger side and turn it counter clockwise. thank you for choosing fixya.

1992 ford full size bronco xlt push button 4x4 auto locking hubs. I do not think 4x4 is working. yellow 4x4 high will come on will not go in low.


Junk the autolocking hubs for a set of good quality manual locking hubs. Your local auto parts store should have them in stock. E-Bay is a low-cost option but all premium hubs come with a warranty regarding failures and saving a couple bucks online is not worth it to me when I can warranty them at the local parts store. Get yourself a manual (Chilton or Haynes) and they will give you complete directions. As for the low range not working I found on my '92 that I had to pull the shift actuator motor off of the transfer case and re-apply the grease to the shaft as the old grease was stiff a non-pliable. It has not failed me since and I put it into low at least once a month to ensure that it works before bad weather hits.

I Have a 2005 ford excursion 4X4 The shift on the fly is not working. I have power at fuse/relay # 111 , it looks like i have no power at the switch and the light on the dash dose not light up. what...


I am having the same problem. But my lights work... My solution is manually lock your hubs in...Screw the Shift on The Fly.... After locking the hubs in I have power to the front wheels...My uncle spoke with a kid at his work who used to service vehicles and the shift on the fly seems to be a constant headache...He stated it does not always lock in and is just a pain in the *** cause there was not a thing wrong with it, it just does not always engage. And I have found this true while deer hunting...So I just walk out and lock them in manually...Just remember dry roads will and I say will eat up your tires.....Good luck!

My friend has jus bought a 1992 Pajero, 2.5 auto, swb, no manual with it. He has heard that when changing from 4x4 to 2wd that you need to stop the vehicle, go intp 2wd, then reverse for a couple of yards...


He need not stop to change from 4x4 hi to 2wd. He can also go from 2wd to 4x4 hi "on the fly" as long as the front hubs are locked, he is going straight and maintaining a steady speed. If the hubs are manually locking, he must exit the vehicle and lock the hubs. If they are automatic locking, in order to go from 2wd to 4x4 he must stop, put the vehicle in 4wd hi and pull off. Once he starts moving, the hubs will automatically lock, he can then switch from 2wd to 4wd hi and vice versa "on the fly". To unlock the hubs, he will need to stop, put the vehicle in 2wd and back up 3 ft. (remember, this is on automatic locking hub models). Hope this is helpful!

4x4 Manual locking hub stuck in "lock"


What I have done in the past when manual locking hubs were difficult, is have a friend get in the vehicle and slowly roll backwards while I attempted to unlock the hub.

1997 isuzu rodeo 4x4 problem


Only the "S" model has the manual locking hubs.
Auto locking hubs look like normal center on a whel; only bigger. Manual locking hubs woul have and indent in the middle of hub and a raised ridge to grab with your finger to rotate the hub into the locked position. There should be some writting on the hub edge telling you which way to turn to lock and unlock.

2002 ford explorer 4x4 will not disengage


Not knowing what type of 4wd engagement sytem you have, this is a guess. Maybe vacuum operated, look for a cracked or disconnected hose.

Or do you have manual locking hubs, that have to be turned manually?

Shift on fly not working


Most likely vacuum problem. Does the A/C blow out of the correct location? i.e if you have it set to vent does it blow out of the vents? If not, then you have a vacuum leak somewhere. The vacuum lines to the autolock hubs is a common problem.
