4 Wheel doesn't engage on 99 Ford Ranger

4 Wheel Indicator Lights on dash come on but front hubs do not engage. Recently had front ball joints replaced, could something have been done at that time to create problem. Vacuum lines, wiring connected to front hub?

If you have locking hubs then yes. They could have been put together wrong. But if non locking then have it inspected to be sure nothing is off. It should be easy to find if something was left off.

1994 ford ranger 4x4 hubs make grinding/clicking noise after taken out of four wheel drive


I think yours has the automatic locking hubs that slide over the the rotor hub. If this is the case than what has probably happened is a u-joint has gone bad and wiped out that auto hub.

Be prepared for some sticker shock on those hubs. they are not cheap. The usual fix for this is to replace the front axle ujoints and what ever hub is making the noise, hopefully just one.

The front drivers side hub is making noise when i hit bumps, when i lock the hubs in it stops making the noise. what's wrong? 2000 F350 Diesel


sounds like you have a bearing going out in the hub. The reason it stops making noise with 4 wheel engaged is having the truck in 4 wheel drives puts power to the front hub. Which gives it more stability. In other words you have power which helps bind and hold the bearings from more extensive travel then with it disengaged. The other possibility is you have a ball joint going out. If you are capable of inspection on these to possibilities you will need to jack it up and inspect ball joints for movement and look for abnormal up and down movement of the hub. If not take your truck in and get the front end inspected at a brake or an alignment shop.

if the actuateor is vacumed,you might have have a hose that came off or it has a split in it somewhere,check that.or if you have posilock hubs one or both may be wore out or lacking grease,they are easy to remove,just a hex wrench and snapring pliers is all you need,remove and inspect for obvious sighns of wear.

If you are seeing the front drive shaft turn,Then it is in four wheel drive,
Your truck has automatic lock in hubs,The most common problem with Rangers is that the lock in hubs get worn and wont keep the axle engaged to the wheel,
If you go to Auto zone they have new lock in hubs for around $50.00
Or you could up grade and get hubs that you manually turn and lock in.

1988 ford ranger push button four wheel drive an it wont engage all the wires are good it just clicks when u push the button.. what should i look for to make the four wheel drive work again it wont...


Start out with buying yourself a $25 book from the Parts House. The I would go to the front HUBS, secure & safety vehicle before you do anything, Clean, Inspect, Lune & Repair front Hubs as required, get the brakes while you're there. Check your drive line, axles, u-joints etc. Clean , repair , replace as needed. Check for Tranfer case Operation. Is there power going to the front Axle when 4WD is engaged? do you feel a change when you engage the Transfer Case? Have you checked the Power on the circuits? Have you Manual or Auto-locking Front Hubs? Answer all those Questions & read before you do anything.

99 Ford Ranger xlt 4x4 The 4 wheel drive won't always kick in Looks like the electrics are working but the hubs just won't always kick in.


I had the same problem w/ my 99. If you have auto hubs, they work off a vacuum pump which is located under your air filter box..check to make sure it is working..is that is working it's on to the hubs..the locking hubs are the black caps in the center of each from wheel..they snap on and off..hard to take off without breaking a few tabs..the seal one or both may not be holding the vacuum created by the motor under the airfilter box. if one of the hubs has a vacuum leak neither side will work, it's all or nothing..aside from the electric parts on the dash and side of transmition that's about everything there is to know about 1999 ranger four wheel system.
