Someone will have to go under and check the linkage is working when the 4 wheel drive is fully engaged and not just moved to a neutral position.

4x4 problems transfercase stays on


If you have locked hub drive in the front end then that shaft will be turning all the time when moving as the front wheels will be making it turn through the diff,. If you have free wheeling hubs that allow you to disengage the hubs then the shaft will be turned from engagement from the transfere case. In that case check that you are in fact changing out of 4 wheel drive and the actuator is not jammed or rusted in the engaged position

4x4 issue could be either the TCCM Transfer Case Control Module, or the transfer case shift motor.

When you turn your dash switch from 2wd to 4HI, can you hear the shift motor underneath operating?

Have a 1993 f150 4x4 transfer case sounds like its engaging but there is a grinding noise when she goes in 4x4 only checked transfer case its fine could the hubs be gone over the summer with out use.


Try removing the front drive shaft from the transfer case to the front differential. With the vehicle on 4 jack stands and the front drive shaft removed attempt to place the vehicle into 4 WD. You may have to start the engine if the vehicle uses a vacuum actuator module to engage the front wheels. When you get an indication that the vehicle is in 4WD try turning the front wheels by hand and see it you hear the same grinding noise .... engage the hubs and try again. Usually if the transfer case is ok then the problem is in the front differential or one of the many universal joints that connect all of the elements together. Check the U joints on the front drive shaft for play as well as the U joints on each of the front wheels.
