According to the mechanic who works on my 94 Jeep it's one of three things:
1) Corrosion on the connector to the switch (which is located on top of the transfer case).
2) A bad switch. Part cost about $22.00 or,
3) A bad console display. he says they have had a fair number of console display units fail.

Good luck!!!

I have a 2007 Nissan Armada and the 4wd light is on what does that mean?


that 4wheel drive is engaged
If the vehicle is an ALL WHEEL DRIVE vehicle there is a differential in the transfer case and although it is always in 4 wheel drive that differential allows the axles to turn at different speeds like when going over speed bumps
but it has a button to lock that diff up and by having that light on (providing there is no fault) the vehicle now has permanent drive to both axles---a condition not desirable when driving on hard surface as it causes torque wind up in the drive train which causes excessive wear in cv joints , splines, and in the teeth and gears/chain in the transfer case and gear box
take it to an accredited service shop that has experience on your make of vehicle and have the problem properly diagnosed as prolonged use in locked 4 wheel drive is an expensive exercise

No light on 4wheel dr control


There are a few things that would cause this problem.
The first and most common would be the switch itself is bad. the next would be a bad 4wheel drive encoder motor, this is the motor on the transfer case that is used to operate the 4wheel drive. The last would be the 4 wheel drive module.
You will need to do some testing, if the four wheel drive is working and goes in and out of 4 wheel drive then i would say it the switch. if it does not work correctly it may still be the switch or one of the components i listed above.I have enclosed a wiring diagram, you will need to do some testing to check system, first make sure all fuses are good. the fuses that operate the 4wd are listed on diagram, it will also tell you the location of each part. you will need to test front axle actuator and selector motor and switch, you will need a test light and a meter. hope this is helpful, good day.4_26_2012_10_13_14_pm.gif

Front wheels not turning in 4wheel drive 1996 dodge dakota


Check and make sure the transfer case is adjusted right If the front end was broke you would know it. Jack up one front wheel and put it in 4wheel drive but not lock and see if the front drive shaft turns if it doesn't you need to adjust linkage or if it's electric make sure the signal is getting to the transfer case. If it only locks front and rear jack up one rear wheel also and do the check. Most people with 4 wheel drive don't know they have two wheel drive One in the rear and one in the front unless you ordered a locking dif from the factory they don't come this way. Then you would have 3 wheel drive

The system may still be stuck in 4x4 even though you have turned it off and it appears to be off. If it is still in 4x4 it should difficult to make tight turns on dry pavement due to the vehicle wanting to buck and **** as it tries to turn while all 4 wheels are trying to rotate at the same speeds. The driveline may also whine if you are driving in a straight line on a dry/hard road surface.You may have to have the vehicle lifted up on a hoist so it can be test run with all 4 wheels of off the ground to determine if indeed it is still stuck in 4 wheel drive. I see this type of problem with 4x4's several times each winter [not just Fords] so it can happen. Good luck, hope this helps!

4 wheel drive lock up


hey charlie, 1st problem is 4 wheel drive being engaged on dry pavement. You should only have it in 4x4 in snow, or off road on sand, dirt,etc. Newer all wheel drive vehicles compensate for the tires rotating at different speeds, like going around a sharp corner. The wheels on the outside of the turn have a longer distance to travel than the wheels on the inside of the turn. This results in the vehicle feeling like it's jumping, hopping or jerking as you cut a tight turn. You can damage your 4x4 system, as the wheels are fighting each other, trying to turn the same # of rotations, and something can and will give (like blowing the transfer case). If your light is staying on after changing to 2 wd, it is possibly stuck in 4x4. To shift from 4wheel to 2 or 2wheel to 4, you should be traveling in a straight line, let off the gas, change in or out of 4x4, resume driving. 4x4 low range requires a complete stop to engage.

Stuck in 4wheel drive??? help :)


when driving in 4wd engagement there is a problem in that the torque in the axles and drive lines is not dissipated on hard surfaces as the wheels cannot slip ( great for snow ice mud gravel and the like but a no-no on hard non slip surfaces
yes reversing it will relieve it but if on hard surface ,winds it up again in reverse
better to simply drive two wheels onto the grass verge of the hard surface and then kick it into 2wd
if the diffs are limited slip diffs then the antislip action in the diffs will be pressed very hard together and will produce problems on turning corners
you may have success if you get all 4 wheels of the ground on a hoist and let the wheels spin and then try to engage 2wd
