Question about 1996 Ford Explorer

Open Question

1996 ford explorer 4.0 not wanting to shift from 4 to 2 wheel.

1996 ford explorer 4.0 not wanting to shift fromw four wheel to 2 wheel . ALSO 2 wheel to four wheel and low to high range. All vac.. and electric wires seem to be connected everywhere. Could the in cabin switch be bad or are there relay switches somewhere? Are there fuses just for this assembly? The problem has gotten moch worse as time went on and finally it refuses to shift but will shift into low range and just wants to stay there so I avoid ever taking it out of 2 wheel high.

SOURCE: 2005 Ford F150, 5.4L V8, 4x4; The transfer case

Encoder motor located on the transfer case is usually the problem. It is the motor that shifts the transfer case.

SOURCE: engine won't start battery has 10.00 volt ,lights

10v is way to low, try and jump start the car, if the battery do not hold a charge then replace it, anything below 11.5 v is bad for the electronics,
remember that the starter pulls close to 200A when starting the car, so turn off everything you can turn off during the attempts to start

2004 Ford Explorer AWD. what could be wrong? abs light is on, 4 wheel drive ligh is flashing, truck is stuck in 4 wheel drive


Sounds like you have an electronic shift diff to put it in 2 or 4 wheel drive. You could have a bad position sensor, or shift motor/linkage problem. Unfortunately, unless you have the diagnostic tool to see which is the problem, it is best to take it too a good tranny shop.

Does my 2003 ford explorer sport have front wheel drive, rear wheel drive or all wheel drive. my email is kmmock1@gmail.com


it is most likely an automatic awd, 4 hi is full time 4 wheel drive, 4 lo is full time 4 wheel drive but at a very low gear ratio and should not exceed 25 mph or could cause damage. and DO NOT shift into 4 lo while vehicle is in motion. Auto is a 2 wheel drive but automatically engages into 4 wheel drive under heavy acceleration.

The gear shift is stuck in park. The wheel moves


Make sure you have brake lamps. The shift interlock solenoid is powered by the brake lamp switch.

Are the brakes ABS all around? 8 cylcinder two wheel drive. Does anyone know?


IT DEPENDS ON THE OPTIONS THAT CAME WITH THE VEHICLE. IF YOU WANT TO FIND OUT IF THEY ALL HAVE ABS THEN LOOK ON THE BACK OF EACH WHEEL FOR A WIRE THAT GOES TO THE CENTER OF THE HUB SOMEWHERE. THAT WIRE GOES TO A RELUCTOR WHEEL THAT MEASURES VEHICLE SPEED AT EACH WHEEL. HOPE THIS HELPS. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. THANKS FOR AN HONEST RATING AND FOR USING FIX-YA. GOOD LUCK

96 FORD EXPLORER XLT 4X4 LIGHT FLASHING


Does the 4x4 "actually" work because this is a signal that the system has a problem. Its like a check engine light that comes on or flashes when there is a problem with the engine or emission system.

1993 4X4 BLASER 4WHEEL DRIVE


Your blazer is equipped with a shift on the fly four wheel drive. That means that at speeds less than fifteen miles per hour you can shift into or out of four wheel drive by simply pushing the four wheel high button. If you wish to shift into four wheel low. Stop, put the transmission into park or neutral, and push the four wheel low button. Same procedure for shifting back out. Never shift into or out of four wheel low while moving. And be careful in four wheel low. At full throttle your still barely moving, you don't want to blow your engine up!
