Hi Rick:
Depending on the vehicle, there may be externally locking (warn) hubs on the front wheels. These have to be manually dis-engaged at the wheel hubs by rotating a fitting at the center of the hub. Otherwise, there should be a shift lever or switch inside the vehicle that will dis-engage the 4WD

Testimonial: "The switch inside vehicle, 2004 Chev Avalanche, indicates that it is in 2 hi..it will sound like it engaging in 4wd when selected but whe 2hi button is pushed it doesnt fullly disengage, I just waht to manually disengauge 4wd"

    Hi Rick: Here's a link that may help. Sounds like there is definitely a history of a wiring harness issue. Check to see if it's under warranty if a recall.http://repairpal.com/4wd-transfer-case-p...

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.

4wd front hub wont disengage


Possible the vacuum bleed-off to the switch you installed isn't allowing it to completely disengage. Pull the bleed-off line from the new switch and see if it works. could be just a tight spot/bent closed in the bleed-off line or the vent plugged.

replace the 4 wheel drive acuator if in 4wd with selector and the wheels are still free then the acuator is bad even tho you 12v the acuator may not be pulling back to lock in the hub for 4 wd. simply replace it as their is a small spring on the acuater that over time becomes week and can no longer hold the presure that is created when it activated.

Having activation problems. How exactly do you activate the 4 wheel drive on a 99 Jeep Cherokee?


Just pull the control lever one notch rearward. first position is 2wd, next is "part time 4wd". after that is neutral (only used when your vehicle is being towed) and last is 4 low, only used when pulling heavy loads at low speeds on slippery surfaces. Best to engage 4wd while rolling at under 30mph. If dash light remains on after shifting back to 2wd, usually backing up about twenty feet or so will disengage it.
If doing what I said does not get you into 4wd, then you need to have someone qualified look at it to make sure the transfer case, front differential and both front axles are in good condition.

2006 ford f150 4wd drive will not disengage


Transfer case and shift linkage need servicing. Sometimes customers have gotten away with just a simple lubrication.... others a rebuild.

1996 ford explorer 4wheel drive will not engage into the hubs need to know how it works


make sure your 4WD switch is working.and fuse is okay.because your 4WD is control by 4 electric shift motors in which drive a rotary cam which moves the mode fork and range fork inside the transfer case to select between 2WD HIGH A4WD - 4WD HIGH AND 4WD LOW RANGE.a shift motor sensing plate on the shift motor monitors the range in which the transfer case is operating a transmission range sensor monitors the gear position of the transmission.which must be in neutral to shift into low.a pair of solenoids one for 2WD one for 4WD.mounted on the upper right firewall route vacuum to the vacuum motor which engages and disengages the center axle disconnect collar in the front axle assembly.a 4 x 4 shift motor relay module contains two GEM controlled relays which shift the transfer case shift motor between 2WD and 4WD modes.a solid state clutch relay activates the A4WDclutch inside the transfer case.

Switching back 4WD to 2WD - 1998 Jeep Cherokee 4L Limited Petrol


With any 4WD like this, always move a few feet in the opposite direction when disengaging. If you were moving fwd in 4wd, switch to 2wd, back up a few feet, then go fwd.
