Someone will have to go under and check the linkage is working when the 4 wheel drive is fully engaged and not just moved to a neutral position.

Have 2003 f150 4wd light on but will not lock in


IF you have both front wheels in the air then either wheel will spin freely unless you have diff lock or limited slip diff. That is the nature of a diff..wd means that all 4 wheels drive but only when you have a limited slip diff or a diff locker. in action . If you have both of one side wheels in a bog you will not go any where.

Tod system on 98 bighorn check light and rear wheels flashing on dash when ingnition on and stays on not pulling front diff out of ingagement vsv are ok and work no power at them but have earth on both so...


check out detent limit switches on gear box and transfer case for continuity and open circuit when pressed(on /off switch) these are feed back signals to indicate it has locked into 4x4 or 2x4, if one of these dont work properly system locks up and wont do anything any more. also check front one on diff near actuator, common problem. check actuator is working properly when vacuum applied and removed. can remove this and bench test unit,some oil will be lost when removed for bench test and you can check colar inside diff slides back and forth to lock axle.

I have 2003 land rover discovery and the abs light just cam on. also a ct light came on... whats the problem? plz help


Ok, you either have an expensive problem, or a very cheap one. And it all depends upon the number of lights on the dash.
If you have ABS and TC showing, then you may just have a diff-lock switch fault (and an intermittent H shaped amber light also which is the diff-lock indicator). This is a software issue with the SLABS ECU and is showing that due to diff-lock the ABS and TC are in a lower response setting. Later trucks don't have this problem (03 model year onwards) as the software was updated. The diff lock switch is about £12, and it's a bugger of a job. It can be done from underneath the vehicle (did mine this way) or from the cabin, and the switch is p/no PRC2911, and just unscrews. It's located just behind the diff-lock stud above where the front prop fits.
Your options are thus:
1) Remove the front prop. Work blind and try and change it by feel alone. Helps if you can clean the area off before too, don't want any rubbish falling in the box! Unplug & Undo the switch, IIRC it's a 12mm head, and a stubby spanner is the tool for the job. Remove, swap the lower nut from the old switch to the new one (important for the length) and put back in. Don't do up too tight, or it may shear off (as my friend did 2 days after I did mine! He kept tightening it...) Pop the connections on and the front prop and the fault should go away. You could also just disconnect the switch if you want. IIRC open circuit is no-diff lock anyway, but if that's not correct then make up a link with some spade connectors and link it out then.
2) Remove the centre console, drill the rivets and attack from above. Same tools needed, just you can see what you're doing.
I favoured Option 1. YMMV!

If however you have ABS, TC and Hill Descent (little picture of a truck going downhill) then you sadly have an ABS issue which suggests either Wheel Bearing, ABS Sensor Fault, or Shuttle valve. Best to get it to a dealer and on the computer for them to diagnose what exactly is wrong.

I just bought a RAV4 in France. Owners manual is


This is a manual center differential lock button for 4WD models.
When you push this button, it manually locks the front and rear axles. An amber C DIFF LOCK light should appear on the dash board when engaged.
Push it again and it will disengage. It may take a few seconds to disengage, and a beeping will be heard until the diff is unlocked.

The center differential lock is only meant to be used in emergency situations. Driving with it engaged at all times can damage your differential.

Diff lock and abs lights


Check to see if the plugs on the wheels are plugged in check that the pins are all the way into socket, that your ABS problem, next check to see if you knocked loose the wire on the differential most likely cause and be sure to top off power steering fluid. Check that the fluid level is ok on the Diff. if you need more help let me know and thanks for using Fix-ya and rate if this was helpful.

Do you have the front hubs disengaged and the shift lever in 2wheel drive. If this is the case, the tyres will fight against each other while turning on bitumen.
