Sometimes the Selector knob will break on the backside. You think that it is turning something and it is not. Pry the knob off and check for cracks near the clip in the knob.

Burnt out Selector bulb. On the one wire style Transfer case, the shift solenoid is extended into position by variable Voltage. Sometimes it is only 1/4 Volt between each setting to make the difference. When the shift light burns out, it can either skew the Voltage higher or cut power to the solenoid. For the 1 wire style, if you put on a Voltmeter and turned the shift Selector with the power from the truck active, you could see if the Voltage changed at each Selector choice.

SOURCE: !998 ford ranger stuck in 4x4

sounds like it's the motor is going bad or has a bad connection, try cleaning the connector if there isn't any gunk in the connector, check the manual see if there is a ohmn test you can run on the motor, if not i'd replace the motor.

Land cruiser 4lo

could be either. possibly just switch on gearbox stuck. do you think it is actually in 4wd or is it just the light? when you turn on a hard road do you hear the tyres scuffing? if it is in 4wd it is possibly the electric actuator jammed, especially if you drove through water/mud a while back

How do i know when it is in 4x4 . where must the lever be for it not to be in 4x4. no the lever is has got 2lo, 2hi n 4lo and 4hi. when you drive where must the it be, and is there lights on the bash that...

Hi, 2hi is your normal driving selection, this is NOT in 4WD mode. Both 4lo and 4hi is for 4 wheel driving, 4lo is used in extreme conditions and will gear the vehicle down to a very slow speed with maximum traction at the wheels, 4hi is for general 4 wheel driving in rough terrain, if you have lights on the dash than it will come on when you change gears, hope this help

Don't know how to put my 2002 sonoma p-up into 4 low

If you're going too fast, the 4low will not work, if you push 4high, it should do good for you. The 4lo is for creeping, and torque. The 4high works almost as good as AWD. Usually up to about 45-50mph. Hope that helps
