Question about 1999 Ford F150 Regular Cab

1 Answer

4 wd will not engage ,indicator lights on dash do not light

1999 f150 4 wd will not engage ,indicator lights on dash do not light up
when positioned to 4 wd.Dash lights work when check is performed at start up.
Vacuum checks ok to vacuum solenoids,Dash board switch checks ok, but power to 4wd vacuum soenoid does not change when switch is activated.There is power to both vacuum solenoids, Fuses are all ok.
Ground wire to 4wd solenoid shows some resistance in circuit.i.e. meter does not indicate ''0'' resistance.
This model has a vacuum activation,not electrical.

    Thanks for the response. I think you were right. It started working

    on its own, but I heard it when it broke loose.

    I turned the ignition off when it was still in drive and and I heard it pop.

    Thanks

If its not engaging into 4 WD the vaccum actulator is more than likely stuck. The actulator is located on the front of the axle next to the the front gear hub it will have a plastic cover over it. Unbolt the two 10mm bolts that hold the cover on and spray down with WD-40, also pull back the rubber cover thats on the actulator staff and spray it. You might have to hit the staff a few times to get it to move just make sure its in 4WD. I had the same problem, that part is exposed to alot of water, snow, salt and so on. Or you could just replace it but its cheaper to spray it down with WD-40

Dash light came on looks like cog with !


Gear with ! (Automatic transmission)
Yellow warning lamp = The transmission is malfuctioning. Avoid heavy loads. All of the selector lever positions can continue to be engaged; in the forward drive positions, however, the vehicle will be operating in a restricted gear range only. Have the system checked as soon as possible.
