Check your linkage on the transfer case. Have somebody shift it while you watch underneath the truck. The linkage could be out of adjustment or bent. Let me know what you find. Phil

SOURCE: Front hubs wont engage

There are two parts to the auto-locking hubs. Inner and outer. Both of them have small tabs on each of the 'cams'. Chances are, they are broken off on the outer hub. When you clean them up real good, you can see them. I believe when the axles turn the outer hub, the inner and outer cams push against spring pressure and lock the unit to the wheel hub. These hubs will break when engaged at higher speeds, especially on a dry tar road.

It is not advisable to keep the hub locks engaged full time,,because it can cause premature wear,,or even damage,especialy if you drive over 30MPH 50kph

your problem is probably the front axle solenoid. it is in the center of the truck on the front axle and it is really easy to change. Simply unplug the electrical connector and use a wrench to loosen it. Spin it counter clockwise until it comes out........Manual hubs i believe are not available for this truck but i think there is a aftermarket cable you can buy and install to lock the front diff in.

Fan clutch stays ingaged

If you mean the fan clutch keeps the fan locked into the hub, replacing the clutch is the only fix I know of.
It uses oil to regulate the fan speed.

95 dodge 2500 4x4 front axle clicks in 2wd not 4wd when engaged

Do you have automatic locking hubs? Do you need to turn hubs on wheels in order to have 4 wheel drive work? If all you do to get in 4wd is move shifter, then you have automatic locking hubs. The clicking indicates that the hubs are not fully disingaging. To check, block rear wheels, jack front up, and turn tire. the axle should not be turning...if it is, hub is still ingaged....time for new hubs.....if hubs are bad, and you want to save money, you can purchase a set of manual hubs made by (WARN)...its more than half the cost, but you will have to turn hubs to lock and unlock manually. still need to use the gear selector to put and take out 4wd.

you're right. the autolocking hubs are pretty crappy especially when old. you can replace them with manual locking hubs from WARN industries.
