Which fuse controls the speed control and the 4WD engage? I assume they are on the same fuse since they quit working at the same time. This is a 2006 RAM 1500.

Year make and model helps. Older vehicles have a fuse for cruise/speed control, but not for 4X4. Newer ones have a fuse for 4X4, but not cruise. If are talking speedometer/speed sensor, The PCM/ECM is what controls them.

    Were you talking cruise control or speed sensor?

    I was talking about the speed control. Also, I just checked the 4WD while sitting in the garage where I can hear it. I hear it engage for both the regular mode and the low speed mode. But the 4WD indicator light never stops blinking on the dash.

    2006 RAM 1500. I added that at the end of the original question. sorry for the confusion.

  • Randy Ohler Dec 17, 2016

    Ok, with the 4X4, You push the button. There are 3 settings. 2wd, 4 high, and 4 low. Hitting each one, do you hear it shift. Have the transmission in neutral when you do it. If you only hear 2 shifts, Then most likely causes are a bad switch or bad wire to the 4wd controller. I won't rule out the controller or motor either. needs to be scanned. You don't have a fuse problem because it partially works. Your cruise control is a separate issue. This could be the switch, clock spring, wiring from there to the PCM, from the PCM to the cruise controller. This also needs scanned.

  • Randy Ohler Dec 17, 2016

    06. The motor is an encoder motor. Has the controller built in. You have an electronic throttle. So the cruise is controlled by the switch, wiring, PCM, and throttle body. Both are separate areas. Most shops will scan for free, give you codes. None of these parts are cheap, except the switches. But they range from $20 to $70.

    Thanks for the help. I appreciate it.

  • Randy Ohler Dec 17, 2016

    You really need the codes. Wiring seems intact for the 4wd, but the cruise is way different. But I don't use cruise control.

2002 Chev Silverado, 2500, 6.0 engine, auto trans with manual engage 4 WHD. 4 wheel drive does not work

You have a switch on the instrument panel ?
The NVG 263 transfer case features a three button shift control switch located on the instrument panel
The NVG 236/246 transfer case features a 4 button shift control switch located on the instrument panel.
The New Venture Gear (NVG) 261, RPO NP2 transfer case is a two-speed, part-time with "mode shift-on-the-fly" capability. It has a chain driven front output shaft and an epicyclical low range planetary arrangement. The NVG 261 transfer case features a four position shift lever control located in the vehicle floor plan. As required, the operator can select 4HI position from 2HI "on-the-fly," as described in the owners manual. A dash 4WD lamp will continue flashing during shifting, until all criteria have been met and the new mode/range position has been reached. Once the new mode/range position is fully engaged and the front axle disconnect locks in, the dash light 4WD indicator lamp will remain ON constantly. Range shifting functions similarly, although it should be limited to speeds 8 km/h (5 mph) or less.

You need to check for a bad fuse or relay. Also there may be a speed sensor problem in the transfer case. Perform an OBDII scan before doing any repairs. this stuff is complicated and expensive. Let the ODBII scan be your guide to avoid buying parts you don't need. The 4WD drive train and axels, should have been serviced at 80,000 miles. (2004 ?)

I dont have any power to the 4wd switch. all the fuses are good please help. 1998 explorer

It ended up being the control module for the 4WD. There was no communication between that and the switch. Once I replaced the control module, I had a bad reference from the rear speed sensor on the transfer case. I'm assuming that shorted the module as well. Any way, it all works good now. If anyone is interested in knowing where it is........Directly above your right leg behind the lower access panel to the right. Its a module about 3" by 2" grey in color.

2000 chey blazer s10 wont go into 4 wheel drive

Need more information, but try to engage with engine at idle and transmission in nuetral and then slowly put into gear. Some vehicles will only engage 4wd system in D for Drive not the D with the circle around it for Over Drive, due to speed restrictions on the system. 4H is used for inclement weather and snow for highway use or cruising off road. 4L should only be used OFF road not on pavement and for slow speeds only. If that does not work put in drive and slowly move vehicle forward with 4wd switch engaged shift to nuetral while coasting and then put into a forward gear NOT reverse and it should engage, make sure you do not have locking hubs as well, I don't know many vehicles that have locking hubs as of late, but I could be mistaken. Hope this helps. Other post have also stated that the 4wd switch could be faulty, and can easily burn out.
