I have a 2000 Dodge Ram 1500 truck with problems engaging the 4x4. I have checked the CAD. The vacuum does switch sides and the fork does move from side to side when FWD is selected. The truck acts


The fork must not be moving enough or the vacume is to weak. Also there is a vacume plunger in the vacume switch on the trasfere case make sure that is working. light oil can free it up or replace it

4wheel drive will not engage


There are three main things that could cause this. #1: in the passenger side kick panel is a module that controls the 4x4 and it should be clicking as you try to put it in 4x4.#2:There is a vacume activator switch on the transfer case located on the top on the drivers side.(If the module is clicking and trying to put it in 4x4 then I would just go to this activator switch).#3 If you replace the switch and it still dosn't go in to 4x4 there is a vacum diaphram under the battery tray that pulls the front end into 4x4.Check and make sure that there is vacum getting to the diaphram which is controled by the activator on the transfer case.If no vacume at the activator or diaphram check all the vacume hoses going into and out of the activator.If no vacume while vehicle is running suspect bad vacume line.You will need to remove the battery to test the diaphram under the battery tray.You will need to hook up some kind of battery to the cables with the battery out of the car to get it started in order to check for vacume at the diaphram.

Most likly cause to your problem would be the transfer case vacume switch check for vacume at switch then check for vacume at the front differntal if you have vacume at switch but none at the front differntal then replace transfer case vacume switch if no vacume at switch look for broken vacume line at intake manifold
