This may be an indication of some type of electrical/electronic fault within the computer control system for the 4wheel drive. I would recommend that you take the vehicle to a repair facility that has the proper scanning equipment, and have it checked for codes. This will tell you what type of fault is occurring.

Why does my dashboard lights flash on and off when I break? battery and oil light turn on red before car shuts off. car will restart but shuts off again after driving a short while and repeats.


Have the check engine light scanned for codes related to this problem first. You may have a charging system issue causing low voltage resulting in the lights flashing/stalling.

I replaced the tumber and key in my 2002 s10 le 4x4 with one from a 2002 s10 2wd,im 4x4 has a 4.3L and automatic,while the 2wd is a 2.2L and a standard,now it wont start


if you replaced the ignition cylinder housing as well the passlock system will have to be relearned. Hook some sort of battery charger or stabilizer. attempt to start the vehicle and just release the key to the running position....check security/theft light on or flashing. after about 10 minutes the security/theft light should go off, turn key off but dont remove for 5 seconds, then attempt to start again. Do this 3 times for a total of roughly 30 minutes and it should start.

Flashing 4x4 light on dashboard


The truck is telling you that there is a problem with the 4x4 system and the 4x4 should not be available for use. the system is extensive so it can be anything from a wheel speed sensor to a transfer case ring gear. the good news is that if its not a check engine light it shouldn't cause a brake down. i would find a good auto shop and have them use whats called a modis scan tool and find out why the light is on.

2004 Ford Explorer ABS light on constantly and


I just had the same exact problem. The ABS light was on constanly, and the 4x4 high light flashes about 8 times, turns off for about 2-5 minutes, then flashes again for another 8 times and keeps repeating. In addition, I was also hearing and feeling a grinding and clunking noise going in reverse, and the steering wheel was difficult to turn. I changed a bad hub assembly on the front driver side and everything went away...fixed! I wouldn't let anybody tell me that the ABS system and the 4x4 system are not linked together. In fact, my local Ford service department assured me that I had two separate issues. Well, I only had one issue and it was a bad ABS sensor. I hope my exprience helps you.

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.
