Likely transfer case switch or solenoid. Typically located on transfer case, is subjected to grime and salt from road causing a malfunction. Local parts store should carry & be under $30. Good luck!

SOURCE: The truck says service 4x4. I press the 4x4 button

I have seen problems in both the dash switches and encoder motors on the side of the transfer case. You need to have the 4x4 module scanned for codes.

SOURCE: 97 ford f150 w'ont come out of 4 wheel high

Me and a couple guys at work had the same problem. My brother who is a ford mech said it is a vacuum solenoid that is located on the passenger side fire wall. It should have 2 vacuum tubes and a small wire harness connected to it. On mine I turned 4wd on and nothing happened. I unhooked the solenoid and it engaged then I hooked it up and unhooked to and it was able to disengage. They only sell these soleiods at the dealers though for about $40. Ive looked all over the net and found nothing. But check those first cause if its no them then its either the hubs not disengaging or solenoid that engages the transfer case. Hope this helped.

The service 4x4 light comes on when I engage 4x4 on a 2003 Dodge Ram 3500 Dually 5.9 T D 4 DOOR


Put it in 4x4 mode and get someone to read your OBDii Codes to see what code is popping.. Sounds like a simple 4x4 switch BUT with the service engine light on an OBD reader would be a Great way to find the problem..

The problem may be related to technical service bulletin TSB 03-001-07 which involves replacing the front axle actuator disconnect and a software update. You should be able to Google the TSB and look at the build date listed in the bulletin to determine if it applies to your vehicle.

if it is a turn knob that puts it in 4x4.then a wire under the truck is touching the exhaust pipe making it do this. I had this happen to mine. It will be 2 wires so they more and likely came loose.

98 Dodge 4x4, headlights stay on and on bright even if switch is off. Tail lights are off, suspect daytime driving light problem??


I would suspect the wiring to the headlight switch is melted. Take the panel off and look where the plug goes onto the switch.

4 wheel drive lock up


hey charlie, 1st problem is 4 wheel drive being engaged on dry pavement. You should only have it in 4x4 in snow, or off road on sand, dirt,etc. Newer all wheel drive vehicles compensate for the tires rotating at different speeds, like going around a sharp corner. The wheels on the outside of the turn have a longer distance to travel than the wheels on the inside of the turn. This results in the vehicle feeling like it's jumping, hopping or jerking as you cut a tight turn. You can damage your 4x4 system, as the wheels are fighting each other, trying to turn the same # of rotations, and something can and will give (like blowing the transfer case). If your light is staying on after changing to 2 wd, it is possibly stuck in 4x4. To shift from 4wheel to 2 or 2wheel to 4, you should be traveling in a straight line, let off the gas, change in or out of 4x4, resume driving. 4x4 low range requires a complete stop to engage.
