2006 Honda foreman 500 when you put it in four wheel drive it feels like the front brake is being applied. Feels normal in two wheel drive


4WD low range makes the vehicle go into slow mode, more grunt when in tough situations. Drives like truck/tractor with 10 gears. Have you tried it in 4WD terrain?

Part time light stays on


if you drive in 4wd, on dry pavement , that is normal
normal for bad usage....
that is because, you did that and now the drive line winds up
and causes it to stick in 4wd, thus the light.
if not really stuck in 4wd then the switch is bad.
if not on dirt or ice stay out of 4wd. (part time)
and that wont happen.

ok say its on ice, then you have real problem,
but you never said what your driving on. ice ,dirt or pavement.

part time facts
the bind is bad news. not just switches stuck.

1992 Pajero 4wd system attempts to engage randomly, 4wd indicator lights blink


Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS, TPMS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

When i put my car on 4wd hi when turning it makes noise


This is normal if you are driving on dry pavement. Your 4wd should only be used on loose gravel or snow. Google " 4wd torque bind"

My 2006 Hummer H3 is having the same issue with the Four-wheel drive button. Do you put the vehicle in park then neutral and then select 4Up? I was told to drive it backwards to unlock it if it doesn't...


It doesn't take long to learn when and how to use your truck's 4WD system. Follow these steps and you'll feel confident about engaging the system the next time you need to get out of a slippery situation.

For a conventional system, where you can select 2WD or 4WD, the instructions refer to engaging 4WD. For trucks with permanent 4WD, they refer to locking the center differential.

Time Required:
varies
Here's How:
  1. Refer to your owner's manual to find out how to engage your truck's 4WD mechanism.
  2. When driving in snow, mud, or just going off road, shift into 4WD when you get ready to leave solid ground. If you have lockable front hubs, lock them for those operations.
  3. For severe conditions, use low range if available. Before shifting into low range you must either stop or slow down to at least 3 mph to prevent grinding gears.
  4. When you return to normal conditions, shift out of 4WD or unlock the center differential. If the shifter doesn't want to move from 4WD or the differential lock stays engaged, don't panic, becaue the problem is normal and is caused by pressure on the gears.
    • Try backing in a straight line about 10 feet and try to move the shifter again.
    • If the shifter still won't move, try backing in an "S" pattern while trying to move the shifter.
  5. If you have lockable hubs, don't forget to unlock them when you return to dry pavement.
Tips:
  1. Vehicles with permanent 4WD are set up for everyday driving, but not necessarily for maximum traction on slick surfaces. Engaging the differential lock increases the vehicle's traction capabilities.
  2. Do not operate a locked 4WD on dry, hard surfaces. Doing that could cause damage to the driveshafts, differentials or transfer case.
What You Need:
Owner's Manual

Good luck and remember to rate this solution.

When i have my 4 wheel drive engaged making turns


If you are in 4WD, and not on a slippery surface, the tires may be having an effect called "scrubbing" where the tire on the outside of the turn is not rotating at the same rpms as the tire on the inside of the curve. I have noticed this on my jeep wrangler in 4wd.

Using 4wd on dry or non-slippery surfaces can cause this problem, and also will cause excessive tire wear.

Try the same manuever on a gravel road or a ice patch (it's been in 90s here in Texas, so good luck on that one) and see if it is improved.

Also, would probably expect a little more effort to steer when in 4wd because the universal joints or CV joints are not in perfect alignment during a turn.
