Question about Ford Expedition

1 Answer

2000 ford expedition AWD locked in 4L

It was locked in low did everything to get it out, no joy. Took the servo off and manually selected 2WD and pulled the main 4WD fuse. The servo is locked up so I cant turn it to put it back in place on the transfer case since it only fits one way on the shaft and I moved it to 2WD and the servo is set at 4L. So my question is can I drive it like this? there felt like spring tension on the shaft that "ckicked" into each position 2WD, 4WD, 4L, but I don't want to be driving down the road and it pop into 4WD or worse 4L. I need my ride and can't wait on a part.

    Just reread the post and I didn't make it clear, the truck is now in 2WD and drives fine, just need to know if I can continue to drive it to work without the servo bolted back up on the selector shaft.

SOURCE: Can't transfer to 4L or neutral mode

Transfer cases can be quirky. I've got a 91 Wrangler, an 86 Cherokee and a 75 Blazer. When I go from 2WD to 4WD, they each have their own personality.

There are a number of things I've learned to persuade a stubborn xfer case to shift.

Try mixing these :

  • Engine running, vehicle not moving
  • Engine off, Shift Xfer case, Restart
  • Tranny in neutral
  • Shift Xfer case 'N', Tranny in gear, Tranny in neutral, Xfer case to 4HI or 4LOW (as long as you feel it register), Tranny in gear, try to move
  • Shift Tranny to Reverse, roll a few yards
  • Lock/Unlock the Hubs
To get back to 2WD:
  • Drive for a few feet in a straight line
  • Unlock the hubs
  • Tranny Neutral
  • Shift xfer case
Let me know how it turns out.
Mike

SOURCE: when in 2wd my 4wd light comes on after truck is

You maybe have a bad switch and it's activating the actuator when it's not supposed to. Try unplugging the actuator by the front diff. See if that makes a difference.

I would think there is a problem with the tranfer case. I would check the fluid level in the rearend and address the leak.

hello and greetings. you did not say what driveline options
were purchase when car was new. so, can not answer.
but if car is PT 4wd, I can. if not get it fixed, by any 4wd shop.

the car is full time 4wd or AWD ?
PT:
the Part time 4wd must not be driving on dry pavement.
so drive to dirt or grass or ice and then shift back to 2wd

there is a TSB from Suzuki on wind up.

exceptions?
sure , the 2004 options statement here. and the rules for PT 4wd.

this might sound stupid but do you have manual locking hubs and if so are you turning them to lock and if you have shift on the fly then check the #17 fuse under your hood it is a 30 amp and check your #40 and 41 relays

I own a 1999 Expedition that I used the 4wd High on 2 dayss ago and never used the 4wd Low at all. As I got home a put it back into AWD and parked it. Two mornings later I climbed into it to take my...


This is very strange because of How the low range is engaged. I drive a 1999 F150 4x4 which has the same dash and controls for the 4x4 as your Expedition. I do know that the fan control switch is unfortunately the same shape and very close to the 4x4 switch. It is easy to grab the wrong knob and turn the wrong thing than was intended.

My initial impression is if it is possible, your girl could have reached over to move the fan switch and actual grabbed the 4x4 switch instead. Or you were warming up the Expedition and meant to turn up the fan and instead turned the 4x4 switch to Low. Or a backpack she was moving with schoolbooks could have hit the switch. What puzzles me is that to go into Low range, you need a foot on the Brake and simultaneously need the gearshift in Neutral and the 4x4 selector in Low. That is 3 things to make the low range happen.

Even if your foot was on the Brake and the sensors caught the gearshift going through Neutral on its travel to Park, the 4x4 Selector would have to be in Low. There is one problem you can have with the 4x4 Selector.***The Selector has 3 Resistors and a LED bulb.***

You stated the Selector switch was good. This would mean there were 3 different Voltages under the vehicle. Sometimes when the LED bulb burns out, it shifts the Voltage out of range for the Servo, and although the Selector says one thing, the Voltage at the Servo has the wrong value for that function. Since the dash light and the Servo agree on Low, it would seem the Selector is out of sync with the other 2 parts.

I hope my solution is very helpful in solving your problem.

I bought a 2005 ford F150 (lariat) 4x4 used. It did not come with an owners manual. What is the procedure for putting it in four wheel drive?. There are no hub locks, its auto.


You can download a PDF of the owners manual from Ford
https://www.fleet.ford.com/maintenance/owners_manuals/default.asp

The shift on the fly ( Electronic with the switch on the dash or Mechanical with the lever ) is all you need to do. The hubs autolock once the truck is in 4WD. Check the page on the shift, 2WD into 4WD is 45 MPH ( think that is it ) or lower if the temp is 32* F or higher ( it is slower in colder weather ). Shifting into 4L is stop, place truck in Neutral or Park, then shift into 4L. Please verify in the manual, this is just what I recall reading.
