It is the shift motor for the 4wheel drive - only problem is that a shop has to program the new shift motor to the blazer or it will keep doing the same thing

You will want to check for any trouble codes in the TCM, (tranfer case control module) to see where the problem might be.

Obtaining Diagnostic Trouble Codes
The transfer case shift module is equipped with the ability to store diagnostic information, which is useful to a technician in the event of module., component or wiring failures. This information can be retrieved from the transfer case shift control module by way of flash codes, which are displayed on the three transfer case shift control switch buttons. These buttons are located on the instrument panel to the right of the steering wheel Before obtaining DTC's perform the following transfer case control module (TCCM) Self-Test.

TCCM Self-Test

  1. Observe the transfer case shift control switch indicators while turning the ignition switch to RUN. A properly operating system will flash all indicators and then will return to the current gear. If the system is operating normally, then proceed to Displaying Codes.
  1. If the TCCM failed the Self-Test, then test the following circuits.
    • Battery Positive Voltage (40 and 1640), and Ignition 3 Voltage for battery voltage
    • Ground Circuit for ground
    • Diagnostic enable circuit for an open or high resistance
    • If the above circuits are normal but the TCCM still fails the Self-Test, replace the TCCM.
DTC Displaying

  1. Turn OFF the ignition for 10 seconds.
  2. Connect pin 13 on the data link cable to a ground. The data link connector is located in the cab under the instrument panel on the drivers side.
  3. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
  4. Observe the transfer case shift control switch select buttons for flashing codes. Refer to Perform a Diagnostic On the TCCM.
Important: If the transfer case shift control switch buttons all blink only once and then stop, no fault codes are stored in the transfer case shift control module.

  • When one DTC is stored in memory, that code will blink that number of times followed by a 3 second pause and then repeat.
  • If more than one code is stored, the first code will blink, followed by a 3 second pause and then the second code will blink.
  • This sequence will continue until PIN 13 on the DLC is no longer grounded.
If the TCCM will no communicate the presence or absence of DTC's, test the above circuits in Self-Test Step 2. If the circuits are complete, then replace the TCCM.

Mitsubishi triton will not engage 4 wheel drive

I got sand bogged. didn't take much to get it out in 2wd. But would have been tricky if was something more. handy to know why the low range didn't lock in most likely caused by the vacuum switch. besides that haven had a issue with the triton and its done some hard 190,000km I can tell you.

I have a 1998 glx mitsubishi pajero 3.5ltr V6. The issue is when I put the 4wd back into 2wd, the light keeps flashing on the dash. as if it still has not gone back into 2wd.

It depends on how long it flashes for, when you select 2wd try and drive for a bit at slow speed and the light should stop. This is normal. If it is still flashing when you are driving then it may not be changing correctly, this could be a number of things but I would recommend you get a pro to check it out as the transfer case is very expensive to replace.

4wd light keeps flashing on 2003 mitsubishi challenger

Hi Adstew,
the front diff has a sensor telling the control unit it when it is engaged (or not). It probably is, and it won't disengage. or the sensor is stuck. The selector lever tells the control unit you want 2WD but the sensor thinks the front axle is engaged. So it flashes.
When shifting to 2WD, normally the front axle will come free after a load change or a bit of turning the steering from side to side, but it sometimes happens that it gets stuck. You can find out:
lift the car free off ground, then select drive forward in 2WD. If the front wheels do not turn, then the sensor may be faulty or stuck. if the front wheels turn in 2WD mode, the diff is stuck and the sensor tells you so. Same or similar problem can happen with the center diff, by the way, on pajero/montero, etc.

Ok i have a 1999 ford ex and i got a new battry for it and look at some fuse but now the 4x4 light is on on my dashbord and when i swick it two 4w it drive bad and truns left real slow some on help

If the 4wd light is not flashing, then it is likely it stuck in 4wd (possbily on accident?). The slow turning and bad driving indicates that it may be in 4wd Low. They only way to take it out of 4wd Low is to put the truck in nuetral and with your foot on the brake, switch the dial (or floor lever) to 2wd. The light should go out almost immediately. Then put the shifter in drive from nuetral and drive at least 15 feet forward. That will disengage the front hubs and you should be all set.

Hope this helps.
