First, did you check on the driveshaft? It's not dropped or has a broken U-joint and/or yoke? Will the truck move in 4WD? If so, the problem lies with the drivshaft and rear end. If not, then the problem lies in the transmission and transfer case. Can you shift gears while the engine is running without them grinding? If so then the clutch assembly is good, otherwise you need to look there.

    I assume you checked the other things as well. There is a problem in either the transmission or the transfer case, since they are bolted together. They will have to come out so unless you are mechanically inclined it should probably go to a shop. It's hard to say exactly what the problem is , it could be a bad shift fork or bent/broken yoke or it could be a broken shaft.

SOURCE: Steering

You will have to check all the jointed steering parts for excessive play, a front end shop will most likely do this for free if they repair the issue.

Check to see if you are getting power through your switch on your dash. I also suspect your shift motor but it is a lot easier to check it with a test light.

89 bronco ii won't go into 4x4 or low range


ON LEVEL GROUND
With the transmission selector in "park", start the motor.
With your foot on the brake pedal (steady-constant pressure), move the transmission selector gear to neutral- then turn the 4 X 4 selector knob to 4-wheel drive high. Wait for the 4 X 4 engagement.
Once it is in 4-wheel drive high, with the transmission selector still in neutral, quickly pump the brake peddle twice, keeping you foot on the brake pedal on the second pump, turn the 4 X 4 selector knob from high range to low range. The transfer case should then change from 4-wheel drive high to low.
Electronics being what they are, you sometimes have to repeat the process. You may even have to inch forward or backward.
[I have an '01 Excursion and an '05 F250 with 4 X 4 on the fly...I miss my '97 F250 with the manual 4 X 4 shift on-the-floor!]
Anyway, check the fuse panel for any blown fuses.
Double check to make sure that the problem is not just blown 4 X 4 lights on the instrument cluster. With the nob turned to 4-wheel drive, have a second person- a spotter, check to see if the drive shaft to the transfer case is moving. If it isn't, you have to delve into the troubleshooting process.
Check the solenoids, vacuum hoses, vacuum actuator, and transmission range sensor on the transfer case. .

Someone wanting to buy my 1987 ford bronco2 4x4 test drove it and brought it back towing it behind a pu. my sons have driven it for 6 years and no recent problems. we have never used the four wheel drive....


it sounds like the transfer case is stuck in neutral you may have to get under vehicle and block wheels and have some one move 4 wheel drive lever while watching it from under vehicle see if it is moving the shaft on transfer case if it is not repair it possible loose nut or pulled out of plastic grommet if it has an electric motor to move it from 2 wheel to four wheel remove motor and manually move shaft to get it out of neutral if it does replace electric motor
