The shift motor on the transfer case is probably full of mud and dirt and is frozen up. Tap gently with a light hammer, or better to use the end of the handle, while someone moves the selector switch back and forth. Common problem, once it shifts, you can tear it down and clean it, but it is complicated. Probably better to replace it, once you have verified that is the problem.

4 wheel drive lights flashing while I'm driving 97 ford ranger


There's a good chance the electric shift motor is bad. Can you tell if you're in 2-WD or 4-WD? Making a slow, sharp turn will feel different - difficult, clunky - in 4WD.

It's possible to get a manual conversion kit, but that won't solve the light issue, which wouldn't matter at that point, anyway. It could also simply be a wiring problem, with current not getting from Point A to Point B. Checking the OBD II will probably give you several codes, which might help.

I had the electric switching on my Expedition, and it went bad. Not cheap to repair.

I have a 1993 ford f150 4x4 i cant get it out of 4 wheel drive it still drive in 4wd how do i fix this problem


if it has automatic lock in hubs only!! start truck, put truck in neutral, push button for 2x2 shift into reverse,back up 5to 10 feet,truck should shift back into 2x2 automatically. shift into drive and the 4x4 light should go off. if you have manual lock hubs you''ll need to unlock those manually on the 2 front wheels.w/truck in neutral and emergency brake on or someone holdling brake inside truck,go to front and rotate the locking hubs to front tire or wheels in centerof hub to free wheel.they will be marked,or should be. if not,then try turning the center of hub switch counter clockwise until it stops turning,then go to passenger side and turn it counter clockwise. thank you for choosing fixya.

When I'm in 4 wd the front wheels feel like the brakes are being applied when I make a sharp turn. No problems when driving straight or in 2 wd.


It sounds like you are driving in 4wd drive on dry pavement. The front drive axles do not work like the rear differential. When you turn, the outside front wheel must travel farther than the inside wheel, therefore they are traveling through the turn at different speeds. If you are on dry pavement, this causes the gears to bind. You don't notice this on slick surfaces because the outside wheel will slip instead of bind up the gears. You should not use 4wd on dry pavement. That's the advantage of push button, or shift on the fly, 4wd. You can shift back to 2wd when you encounter dry pavement. All wheel drive vehicles don't have this problem because they have a limited slip front differential as opposed to a locking differential on 4wd. Hope I didn;t confuse you too much.

I have a 1999 ford ranger 2 wheel drive automatic


Sometimes this works, ABS light on, check engine light on, speedometer not working, and the automatics start shifting hard or not shifting at all? One bolt and the part is cheap, its weird how one part controls so much.

How do I turn on the 4 X 4 on my 1999 Ford Explorer or is it automatic? I don't have a manual. Is there some sort of button on the dashboard?


There should be a knob or selector on the dash usually located to left of the radio. When you put your vehicle in 4wd you can do this on the move at a sloe rate of speed but never try to put it into 4wd low on the move or it will hurt the system. To put the vehicle in 4wd Lo stop and put your transmission in neutral and the select 4wd Lo. Hope this helped you out, Roger

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.

4WD seems stuck, RPMs up to 4000 at 35 MPH


There is a motor on the rear of the tranny that switches this. check the plug and it is easy to remove the motor and test its operation. then there is a keyway that you can easily turn with a small blade screwdriver...., Odd but there are no vacuum hoses going to the transmission... OH rats unless it is an automatic... but still the 4WD shifting is electrical..
