I have a 93 ford explorer 4x4 automatic. The 4x4 doesn't engage, or does anything when the button is pushed. Is this something simple to fix? Thanks Duane

This will take two persons to do...with a light hammer or mallet, hit the 4x4 motor on the transfer case as another person is pushing the 4x4 high switch,while the vehicle is in neutral and the emergency brake on, AND FOOT ON THE BRAKE.BE CARFUL NOT TO RUN OVER YOUR HELPER!!!! If it starts to work,replace the 4x4 motor. The inside of the motor gets corrodid from water and dirt.

93 ford explorer wont go into 4 wheel drive no pwr light on


Simple fix your motor that engages and disengages the 4x4 is locked up all you need to do is tap it with a hamer while someone else hits the button at the same time just keep taping the buton and keep hiting taping with the hamer untill your helper says hey bud the light came on. then engage and disengage it at least 50 times to make sure it is free and moving.

I own one this is a comon problem with them a new motor for the transfer case 70-90 dollars on ebay but mine has worked from now on

4X4 doesn't engage


the most common problem with these trucks is the actuator on the transfer case. you can remove it and see if you can spray it and get it to engage. if not, youre going to need to replace.

I have a 1994 XLT Ford Explorer, was running fine with no transmission problems. Parked vehicle during snow storm about two days later I got into the vehicle to move it again, put the vehicle into...


That don't sound good. If you shut the engine off and restart it, is the grinding noise still there? If you engaged it with wheels spinning there's a good possibility the you broke something inside trans or transfer. If you did that with engine idling, I find it hard to believe anything would break. As far as it not moving it could be something as simple as the brake pads are frozen to the rotors (cold weather). I guess it's possible you have the transfer case jammed somehow, but that doesn't explain the grinding noise in the trans. The park pawl is in the transmission, so when the trans is in park the only thing turning is the input shaft and maybe a clutch drum or two. The output shaft should be held still by the park pawl. If you have a push button on the dash to engage the 4X4, that means it's done with an electric motor, it's possible that motor failed. You could try pushing the vehicle by hand a little maybe you jar it loose.
I guess I'm not much help, sorry.

Auto 4x4 Suddenly Stopped Working 2002 Explorer Sport


  • sounds like you might have a bad transfer case solenoid which is activated when you hit the 4x4 button to engage the 4 wheel drive. I had the same trouble turned out to be that only takes about 1/2 hour or less to change. It is located under driver side just behind trans looks like a small round cylinder with about 3 wires, you may have to cut and splice them back but be sure to put color to color and either tape them with electrical tape or solder them and then tape them.
