4 wheel drive won't engage, car won't move

I was in the process of engaging the 4 wheel drive when I had to make a turn and the 4 wheel didn't engage. Now the car won't move. It happened once before, the tow truck driver did something under the truck and it moved into gear, any advicew?

I replaced the malfunctioning “thermal actuator” with the “Warn” Vacuum actuator setup, it’s been working great for about 7 years now, simple install, if I remember correctly, it was about $150.
That’s what engages the front diff into 4wd.

It sounds as if you have a vacuum solenoid problem.
The 4x4/4x2 vacuum solenoids are attached to the upper RH side of the engine compartment, and alternately route vacuum to the vacuum motor which engages/disengages the center axle disconnect collar in the front axle assembly.They are grounded when activated, open circuit when deactivated.I would first of all make sure that you have power to them on the W/LB wire with ignition in run postion.If not then check fuse 23 (10amp) in the interior fuse panel.Disconnect the solenoids and measure their resitance should be between 50-100 ohms.

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.

97 4 runner wont move,no noises just like your in nuteral.Fluid is fine i can move it in 4x4 what can i look for before my girl tells me to dump it


To understand you
the car runs but when you engage drive it doesn't move
however if you move the selector from 2 wheel drive to 4 wheel drive it does move
is that correct
logically if that is the case the auto transmission is working but the drive to the rear wheels is not functioning
That would point to a problem in the , diff connection ( broken rear axle )
by engaging 4 wheel drive you are moving by the front diff only

When i engage four wheel drive from the lever in the car i only get traction on the rear wheels. Is there a diff lock i need to engage


It depends, look at the hubs on your front wheels? Is there a knob in the center of the wheels? If so, then turn this knob to the right and you will have engaged the 4 wheel drive? If you do this, however, make sure you engage the 4 wheel drive inside the truck (if your truck has a 4 wheel drive gear shifter).
Oh other Rangers you have a knob on the inside of the cab it should be somewhere on the dash. You can turn it to the right and this will engage the 4 wheel drive.
Finally, when you engage the 4WD make sure the engine is cut off so it doesn't mess up your transfer case.
