I having once owned a Trans Shop I would
ONLY rebuild your original factory unit

NEVER,NEVER install any used transfer or
trans, in any vehicle ( that is junk out & junk in)

Doubt anyone knows your exact questions answer

Not even the trans shops that work on them

If you do not do all your own work,your in a tough spot

Then you get a rebuilt unit from Jasper Engine & Trans
or other similar company & you get a warranty

Who will you get to diagnose the issues & R&R the transfer?

If your not the one doing ALL the repairs-- your in for an expensive
& possibly unhappy situation-- down the road

Unless you get a reman from a dealer

All trans shops I know, install a used salvage yard unit,then the
problems continue

Been there,done that

Just a heads up

My question: Why on a 2004 Vehicle, do you even have a problem?

Did it leak & run dry

Was it used when it wasn't working properly & continued on anyway?

Everything fails for a reason

Best find out why, before you start pulling out heavy components,
that may not be the issue

There could be several causes. You could need your tires balanced, you might have unevenly worn tires caused by loose steering parts or worn shock absorbers. Have a tire shop check the tires. If the vibration gets worse when applying the brakes it indicates warped rotors. If they have not reached minimum thickness they may be able to be resurfaced - however - resurfacing removes more material and takes away their ability to get rid of heat, meaning they could warp again sooner. Fast driving and hard braking causes the heat that causes warpage.

Did you find that fuse under dash or hood.Sometimes there's one under hood, or dash that may be labeled aux power or something like that. Also, did you check it with key on and vehicle started as well? Can you not wire jack to battery on front of trailer or don't have battery there?

My 2007 Ram 1500 has a persistent problem. I've

I am shocked that the dealer cant fix it, even after warranty. But it sounds like a switch/sensor on the transfer case, or the 4x4 is engaged, and the computer hasnt relayed it to your dash. Can you feel the 4x4 engage? You should be able to.

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

4x4 will not engage. If front differential is messed up the front end wouldnt move at all correct?-

if the frt axle is vacuum actuated it can be either a broken vac line or the vac switch on the transfer case or the actuator on the axle
