SOURCE: Truck says to service 4 wheel drive, the fluid has been changed.

The 4 wheel drive actuator motor is not working, that is why the message, they stick if they are not used very often.

SOURCE: I have a 2003 Yukon

My 2003 yukon xl does the exact same thing. Sorry that I do not have a solution, but I figure its the same reason the daytime running lights always burn-out. The SUV in general has be an absolute POS and I will never buy another.

SOURCE: the transfer case will not shift into 4 wheel hi

I would suspect the vacuum disconnect motor or the vacuum solenoids for the disconnect motor ( or the vacuum lines ), but best to confirm
Lift and support the front of the truck so the front wheels are off the ground ( take safety precautions, chock wheels, jack stands, etc )
Key on, engage 4x4 and try to turn the front drive shaft.
If it turns it is a problem with the transfer case.
If it doesn't it is a front axle engagement problem.

With the engine running ( and wheel chocked, parking brake on ) have someone shift into 4WD, and watch the shift motor to see if it operates
It is on the front axle, looks like this

If the disconnect motor does not shift, you can check the vacuum on the lines with a vacuum gauge. Blue line is 4WD operation, pink line is 2WD operation.
The vacuum solenoids are on the firewall, and look like this

This is the block diagram for the ESOF vacuum operation of the disconnect motor.

This is assuming you have checked the fuses for the transfercase shift motor, and the vacuum solenoids.

SOURCE: GMC '91 Jimmy, Transfer case. When in two wheel

Yeah your right about waer but you might be blaming the wrong part. With the truck up on jack stands ( all wheels off the ground) have a helper drive the truck at the speeds that make the most noise you'll find it in the front axel or fround U joints or drive shaft splines ( drive shaft jumping ) You watch the parts moving and the joints or the cable that shifts the ront axel in and out not moving all the way it uses a vacume motor under the battery that has a cable going to the front axel. the clutches that are in the front axel have clips on them that hold the side gears that engage and disingage as you turn it on and off the clips break get lost fall off were out and let the side gears do as they please and they runinto each other a click and pop/ the cable and the shift fork that move them also fail but not htat much as the cable fails and the vacume leak pulls on a spring in two wheel and it may not be pulling hard enough/

Front wheels not turning in 4wheel drive 1996 dodge dakota


Check and make sure the transfer case is adjusted right If the front end was broke you would know it. Jack up one front wheel and put it in 4wheel drive but not lock and see if the front drive shaft turns if it doesn't you need to adjust linkage or if it's electric make sure the signal is getting to the transfer case. If it only locks front and rear jack up one rear wheel also and do the check. Most people with 4 wheel drive don't know they have two wheel drive One in the rear and one in the front unless you ordered a locking dif from the factory they don't come this way. Then you would have 3 wheel drive

2001 Dakota: four wheel drive will not engage and windshield wi...


4x4 issue could be either the TCCM Transfer Case Control Module, or the transfer case shift motor.

When you turn your dash switch from 2wd to 4HI, can you hear the shift motor underneath operating?

When place in four wheel steering becomes very hard, and pulling in my driveway front tires locked up. only happens in 4 wheel. 2005 dakota


A Dodge Dakota with 4-wheel steer? Do you happen to mean 4-wheel drive?

If so, you should not operate the vehicle in 4-wheel drive when you are traveling on a hard, high-traction surface. When in 4x4, the transfer case connects the front and rear axles, and does not allow for differentiation of wheel speeds necessary when turning. This is compensated for when driving over low-traction terrain because the tires slip easier.

Basically, the jerking, bucking and locking of the truck is due to the binding. This will eventually lead to damage in the driveline. If the roadway isn't covered in snow, there is no need for the 4 wheel drive to be engaged.

Well where the real drive shaft meets the front axel which I think is the 4 wheel drive chain case. It was making a noise, that sounded like I was dragging a can behind the truck. It started to get worse...


The transfer case is what you are describing,,and to convert it to 2wd is possible,but very expensive as you would have to change the transmission itself to a 2wd,and then obtain a rear 2wd driveshaft.It would be more cost effective to rebuild,or replace with a good used,transfer case.
