Step 1 would be to see if the vacuum supply switches from one hose to the other on the front axle disconnect. It's a vacuum servo on the front axle, and has 2 hoses going into it. BE CAREFUL as you will have it running and be right under the engine and fan. If it sucks through one hose in 2WD and the other in 4WD, the transfer case switch is working properly, and the servo is suspect. Also, did you test drive in a parking lot to see if it actually in 4WD and just not turning the light on, or is it definitely not going into 4WD?

1996 f150 4x4 e4od automatic stuck in 2nd or limp mode while in 2wheel drive or 4wheel high,when i put it in 4wheel low the transmission shifts in all gears. At fist I was told the transmission was bad,so...


Wow,
That's odd ,push button shift I suppose . Ford doesn't have a 2nd gear limp mode ,I don't think.
Has to be the manual linkage at the shifter,try manually shifting? still no low?

The low range light has come on its stuck on 4x4 and is slowing my truck down how do i fix this


you cannot run your truck normally in 4x4 low!!!! the low is designed to go slow slow.try shifting into neutral gear on column tap the high 4x4 then shift to reverse,back up 15feet then shift to drive.it should go into high 4x4 then if you want to go back to 2wheel high shift to neutral tap the 4x4 high until the light goes off,shift to reverse and back up 15feet then shift to drive and the 4wheel drive lights should all be off. then you'll be in 2x2 rear wheel drive. thank you for choosing fixya.com

Does the vehicle have to be in neutral when you put it in 4 wheel drive, or what is the proper way to engage the 4 wheel drive


it has to be running and in neutral to engauge the 4x4. shift to neutral,then push the 4x4 option that you want. 4wheel high you can use almost any sensible speed.4wheel low is only for low speed 15 to 20mph is best for 4wheel low,otherwise will damage engine or transfer case. when you take it out of 4x4 it has to be in neutral also. thank you for choosing fixya.com

How to shift into 4wd


Ford has 2 types of 4x4 system engagement. One is a knob on the dash that you just turn to 4wheel drive high or low. The other system is the 4x4 transfer case shift on the transmission tunnel (hump) between the driver and passenger seats. To shift into 4 wheel drive high while driving, just let off the gas and shift transfer case into 4H position, and continue driving. To shift into 4 wheel drive Low, stop the vehicle completely, put transmission in neutral, shift transfer case into 4Low position, put trans. in gear, and start driving. I am assuming before doing the above, you have locked in ( turned the front hubs to 4 wheel drive position.) Any further questions, let me know.

ENGINE LIGHT ON ATFER HAVING IT SERVICE & THE 4 WHEEL DRIVE LIGHT


There are well over 100 problems in the electronics that turn the service engine soon light on, go to autozone or a kragen and they will run the trouble code test for free, then record that code and post it here. As far as the 4X4 goes that problem is most likely the electric motor that engages the 4X4 tranfer case, u will have to have that tested by either a 4X4 shop or the dealer, the dealer is the best option.
