    take it in for warranty as the transfer case is most likely damaged.

Could be the switch or the controller motor on the transfer case.

What could be causing a 04 ford explorer xlt to be grinding when turning left, acts like auto 4x4 trying to kick in, any ideas what the problem could be?


the problem you describe seems to be a symptom of dirt or dammage in the autolocking hub system , you will need to dissasemble to see what the cause is any further , this might be a good place to say what i allways tell my fellow 4x4 folks if your gonna drive thru Mud/sand/dirty water then make it a point to carry a jug or two of fresh water with you and after reaching clean road again use this water to flush out seals in front and behind your front tires you'll save your self a bunch of worries down the road

Drive train f-150


Do u have it in 4x4 on dry pavement? If that's the case, u should use 4x4 mode only in snow, off road, etc. The 'problem' is that all 4 wheels are trying to rotate the same revolutions , and the 2 wheels on the inside of the turn have a shorter distance to travel. This usually results in a sort of lurching feel as the truck goes forward, sort of like it's being held back. Does this sound like what's going on? If it does, just avoid sharp turns on dry pavement when in 4x4. Let me know if this does not help.

2005 f-150 4x4 not engaging


First of all, the problem was caused by lack of use of the 4x4. The fix was to have someone sit in the seat & turn the switch while 2nd person tapped on 4x4 solenoid underneath the truck (next to the gearbox (seen from rear of truck) about directly below middle-rear-seat). It must have become stuck (or rusted) together? Little taps while engaging switch 'unfroze' it. My 2 fuses that were blown were probably caused by overloading when I first tried to use the 4x4 while it was frozen out. Since fixing, just be sure to turn it on (and off) frequently, even if you don't need it. You don't actually need to drive with it, just engage it temporarily.
