Check the linkage at the transfer case. There is also the switch to the light located near there. Check for worn out ujoints in the linkage this will keep it from fully

2001 ford f150 4x4 does not engauge


We may need more details. Does your 4wd dash light illuminate? Do you hear clicking from the dash? If it does not, you are dealing with a fuse or transfer case issue. If you see the light and hear clicking, it likely is not your transfer case but either your 4wd solenoids (attached photo) on the passenger side firewall or the actuator on the front differential. Pop the hood and listen for clicking from the solenoids, if the click, direct your attention to the actuator. It is vacuum actuated so it should move about an inch when engaging and disengaging 4wd. It sometimes gets stiff so see if you can move it by hand to free it up.

When in park and put in 4x4, Relay in dash clicks 5 times and both 4wdH and Lo lights come on.


The actuator has a spring that is known to break easily in mid-late 90's chevy's.

1989 bronco II 4wd automatic. sister recently gave it to me. been in 4wd one time years ago. has automatic hubs. will not go into 4wd. lights by push button do no light up. any suggestions.


There is a motor on the back of the transfer case that controlls the 4x4 and it will "gum" up from lack of use. I would start with that.

Not starting which relay controls fuel pump


1994 ford Bronco was starting and running fine. My daughter drove it 3 miles to school that morning then a few hours later she went to start it and it would'nt start. The door chime and all the dome lights, lights on dash lite up as normal and when you turned the key to (start) position you could hear the fuel pump then it just would click and not turn over and start. Jumped the battery that didn't work. Had it towed home and tried a few more times that night to get it to start but no luck. Next afternoon went to check it out again and for the heck of it thought id try starting it. Would'nt ya know it..It STARTED right up? After checking Battery and solenoid..etc I thought it was the starter but now im not sure.

The Service 4wd light used to go on and off


Drive in circles, one direction then the other and it should come out...Gears get preloaded and will remain so until this load is released...

The engauge/disengauge control does not have power to overcome gear preload.

The 4 wheel drive doesn't work in my 89 Ford Bronco


The sound is not coming from the glove compartment, it is coming from the panel behind the drivers seat, that's where the relays and computer are located.
The relays click and apply power to a transfer case motor.
The motor attempts to turn a shaft that engages the front drive shaft.
When the computer thinks the shaft has NOT turned it tries again.
It will try three times then quit, figuring the shaft has not turned.

Get someone to crawl under the vehicle and engage the 4WD (just turn on the ignition- do not start the engine) See if they can hear the motor attempt to turn the shaft, it will make a clicking sound.
If not the connections or the motor may be bad.

I have found the most probable cause is the relays on the control board.
If you are technically adept --
you can remove the small side panel from behind the drivers seat and remove the control board. (remove the power plugs first)
Clean the relay contacts and bend them a little to give them more 'wipe' to keep them clean longer.
Put it back in and turn on the ignition.
Then push the RESET button on the side of the board.
Try the in / out 4WD a couple of times. If it doesn't work turn off the ignition, turn it back on and push the reset button again.
