Question about 1996 Ford Explorer
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.

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

Testimonial: "Will look into this and report .Thanks so much"
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
