No year, no joy, sorry !@!!!

the car has 2 front tires.

with open axles, (you have the LSD option)

one tire dies spin, the loosest tire spins.)

but if you hold the foot brake lightly , you get poor mans LSD.

my 08 wrangler JK, it has no LSD but does have software that does the brake trick automatically. so not posting the year, makes answers

IMPOSSIBLE.



read the operators guide.

find out what options are on your car.

read the FSM for how yours works (it has the 4wd theory in mine)



the 2008 (07 and newer?) uses the ABS sensors to detect wheel spin

in 4wd, then the ABS modulates the spinning wheels to force

the spider gears to send torque to the TRACTION side.

i call this Virtual LSD and is free. in both cases. with no LSD hardware.



LSD is an axle locking device (hardware clutches) and

means limited slip differential.

My car could have had optional electric lock axles. but did not.

SOURCE: front tires wont pull in 4wd

You have an actuator on the front axle, check for power or pull out and check for damage. You can also check for proper working while out ,make sure ground is good.

Sounds like your front actuator in the axle is not working..What you can do for now instead of buying a new one is remove the front actuator.It is a threaded in unit.Take a crescent wrench and remove it.Next find a big nut or bolt to put inside of it.Once you have it off you can jack the front end up put your finger inside of the hole where actuator goes.Rotate the front tires back and forth and till you can push the tab inside in.That will lock the front end .And the reason your putting the bolt or nut in there is to take up the space the actuator would normally would Push in..Remember your front axle is always going to be lock and you will still be able to unlock it with the push button.After you put the bolt in the hole screw the actuator back in.This will hold the bolt and keep your axle locked.........

1979 cj7 jeep renegade only my front tires spin and the back ones will start to but then they quit? It has a hydro vac system in the glove box but that does not help ?


ok this car has part time 4wd
and my guess you dont have option, called EL ESS DEE
limited slip differential , using the abbreviation here is profane post failure.(silly they are) L*S*D

4wd engaged, both prop shafts under power.
so with out EL ESS DEE.
the tire that is has the least traction spins, (called open axles)
with EL ESS Dee option all 4 wheels spin in 4wd, no matter what.
all 4 get Torque.
but slip in turns a bit.
so if no EL ESS DEE.
what to do, easy ,do as my new jeep does, 2007+ JK
drag your foot brake lightly,this magic trick forces all 4 tires
to have torque,
my 08JK uses ABS to do that magic. all automatically.

this is how part time 4wd works
the transfer case has no center differential.
so you must not drive on dry pavement, only ice and off road.
or get damage.

On my 01 grand vitara i changed the 4wd pump behind the bumper the indicator light for 4wd now comes on but 4wd still does not engage


what does engage mean.? it fails on ICE or DIRT

engaged, means, (mechanically) one tire front and rear have traction

with LSD front and rear all 4 have traction and spin on ice

does it?

part time 4wd dont work on dry pavement so that is my 1st question

why not state, what you are driving on, and what does engage means

by what means did you check engaged.????



this car is not AWD, do you know the difference from AWD and

Part time 4wd? the diff, is there is center differential. on part time

so must be (true test) tested on ice, or dirt.



see the videos here, or a demo.

or on ice. ice you will see front and rear both working,

on dry plave ment all you get is windup... very very bad to do

in traffic, causing you to wreck and other to get , hurt.

if you understand all that, then do say what you mean

ENGAGED.

if you know what windup is and it dont, then you are correct

its not engaged. (jack left front tire up, engage it and feel it? by turning the the tire, it must fight you)

front up, rear down. in 4wd.

here it it is again.

http://www.fixkick.com/part-time-test.html



if it dont engage for real,. may i introduce you to the FSM

its in my hand now.

page 3B-3 . see it?

switch closes in xfr case

ECU sees that and powers up the air pump.

if pressure is good the Ecu is told that, if wrong you get scanned DTC code saying just that (obd2 scan too)

the pump has 2 shut off modes, good pressure. and fails to hold for 10seconds. (prevents pump from running all time)

if all the above works the Lamp glow by PCM command.

if you have full pressure , the lock in the front axle is now locked

no pressure, no lock yes full pressure it must lock or the axle

actuator is bad.

the page 3B6 says pressure is 4.25 to 6.40

page 3b10 is the acutator test. and the TRUE ENGAGE TEST

front wheels off ground.

apply 4.2psi with shop air and reg.at the acutator nipple

1: you spin one tire, the other spins backwards (GOOD test)

kill the 4.2 psi supply air

2: you spin one tire.

and the other tire, does nothing, (remains stationary)

pass. test 2.



test one is locked

test 2 is 2wd.



the other tests are on ice or dirt.

does that help?

4wd not engaging. Check actuator and seems to working properly. Jacked front end up and and when in 4wd the front tires spin freely. Any suggestions?


Does the driveshaft for the front wheels turn when in 4wd? The actuater might work but the diff lock for the front wheels might have broken. If the front driveshaft does not turn when in 4wd, the transfer case might be the problem.

Four wheel drive actuator


I would try taking the right tire and cv axle off there next to the oil pan is a part that the axle slides through.it has a connector that engages the axle or 4x4 but if it is dry it will need to be replaced or checked out.it is kind of hard to take all of that off but check it out
