Question about Suzuki Cars & Trucks
Service the Free wheeling hubs
No year wow,. nor 4wd options stated.
in what country, and what model Sierra, since 1981.?
5 generations. many are part time 4wd, ever read who to use that?
if in part time 4wd, you need to be off dry pavement, do drive
gently to soft dirt ,grass /sand or gravel and shift out out of part time.
is it just he light stuck on, or is it really in 4wd, driving on ice?
New Suzuki's have this, ( i bet you dont)

the connections near the front axle that activate the motor to engage the system aren't melted? That's a comon problem for that body style. If there good, sounds like it could be that motor itself. To figure out if it's you motor or transfercase, jack up the rear end, have a friend inside shift into 4 wheel drive, or try to, and put it in gear and apply some gas. If the front driveshaft is turning then it's something with the front end. If not, farther back in the system.

They are operated by vacuum. Check to make sure the vacuum lines are connected and not ripped or anything. If that checks out fine, remove the vacuum line from the hub and apply vacuum to the hub, if the hubs lock then the problem is in the vacuum line or switch.

Sounds like you either have a vaccum leak or your 4 wheel drive actuator is not working to engage the front differential.On my 98 ram there is a black and red plastic lines that are used for the vaccum lines. They are underneath and go from the transfer case to the front axle, check to see if one or both might be cracked or broke completely.If the lines are good then it could be your actuator on the front axle. A new one is about $93 at advance auto parts and not very hard to replace

im not sure if a 2000 f150 and a 2000 f250 have the exact steering column,but incase it is then check at the base of the column inside and you may see a triangler shape bracket that the shift cable connects to,there will be 2 torque screws holding the bracket to the column,either a t-20 or t-25 not sure,they may be loose so the shifter will be sloppy...my 2000 f150 had that problem and i stumbled upon it,it seems to be a 2000 year issue...about the manual hubs,try locking them in and drive forward and reverse very slow a few times,if they lock in then they are sticky and it takes time for the spring inside to push then together.lock the hubs in first,then after a while shift to 4x4,because if they are just sticky,it may strip the teeth on the lockouts from the axel turning against the inside of the lockout.
