Question about Cars & Trucks
2003 Expedition does not shift into 4 wheel drive in any switch position. Both 4x4 lights on dash use to flash 3 times every 2 minutes, but they no longer do. Checked fuses, I have 12v to 4x4 control module, but no output(12v) going to transfer case shift motor. I can apply 12v to motor and it will shift both ways. Checked resistance on all 4 position of selector switch, all OK per shop manual.

If it has the push button 4wd selector on the dash, it is most likely the transfer case encoder motor. Not to bad to replace but you will have to remove the front driveshaft.

Encoder motor located on the transfer case is usually the problem. It is the motor that shifts the transfer case.
