Dirt is the #1 problem - and lack of lubrication.
Remove the hubs - clean - and re-pack with grease.

Thanks!!

Your truck is a 1992 and generally I see these go out upon 8 to 10 years old. the reason is the seals go bad and dirt will get inside destroying the working parts. Aftermarket hubs are generally seen at a far better price than GM prices if replaced. Take off your old ones and clean them in a solvent. Check and see if all parts are intact and clean. The seals can be purchased separately at the dealer. Most of the time the original bolts will shear off so plan on that to happen. I would soak them overnight with a penatrating oil with a fast acting catylist also so they remove somewhat easier

My 1994 rodeo won't go into 4wd I lock front hubs in put into 4wd lights come up on dash saying in 4wd but front wheels will not lock in does anyone have any idea


It's probably not the front hubs...it's the transfer case/solenoid.
Sometimes you have to move the vehicle a few feet back and forth to engage the dog clutch; I've found that this works to get it out ?f AWD.
If you haven't changed the transmission or gear case fluid in 30 years you should do that too. AS well as the differential lubes.

How do ii disengage 4 locked 4wd..


Hi Rick:
Depending on the vehicle, there may be externally locking (warn) hubs on the front wheels. These have to be manually dis-engaged at the wheel hubs by rotating a fitting at the center of the hub. Otherwise, there should be a shift lever or switch inside the vehicle that will dis-engage the 4WD

Why doesn't my 4x4 work


Do you have mechanical-shift four wheel drive,or electronic-shift, 4WD system ? Any lights lit on the dash ?
The electronic-shift, 4WD system consists of the following components:
  • Transfer case (For transfer case repair procedures, refer to Section 308-07B ).
  • 4WD control module (For 4WD control module installation, refer to 4WD control module in this section.)
  • Mode select switch (MSS)
  • Gearmotor encoder assembly
  • Automatic locking hubs (hub locks)
  • Pulse vacuum hub lock (PVH) solenoid and vacuum lines
  • The mechanical-shift four wheel drive (4WD) system consists of the following components:
  • Transfer case (For transfer case repair procedures, refer to Section 308-07B ).
  • Transfer case shift lever
  • Manual locking hubs
  • 4x4 indicators
  • Shift linkage (hub locks)

4x4 high low gets stuck in neutral


this is a Part time 4wd system
and is not to be used on hard pavement.
not posting road surface makes answers, IMPOSSIBLE
its for ice, snow or dirt never pavement pure. ever.

or risk windup or worse
BTW 4wd means the front axles is locked too. (hub locks)
Suzuki even has a TSB showing how to unwind a kick or sammi.
amazing how this needs to be said but. here its,
ITS NOT AWD.

I just bought a 97 Ford Explorer AWD. V8. The AWD will not kick in when the wheels spin.


Check and see if you have locks that have to be turned on the front wheels, in the center of the hub to lock the front wheels into 4WD.

Best regards,

How does the 4wd work


if the car has 4wd and considering the age it should have a lever sort of like the one for your transmission gears. you would have 2 low on top, then 2 high. then N for neutral, then 4 low and 4 high at the bottom. but you must turn your hubs which i believe are manual in that truck so you must get out of the truck and manually turn them to the "lock" position. you cannot throw in your 4wd while driving even if your hubs are turned. it will damage your transmission. park it change it then go and idt it will let you go but so fast. i think below 60mph

95 dodge 2500 4x4 front axle clicks in 2wd not 4wd when engaged


Do you have automatic locking hubs? Do you need to turn hubs on wheels in order to have 4 wheel drive work? If all you do to get in 4wd is move shifter, then you have automatic locking hubs. The clicking indicates that the hubs are not fully disingaging. To check, block rear wheels, jack front up, and turn tire. the axle should not be turning...if it is, hub is still ingaged....time for new hubs.....if hubs are bad, and you want to save money, you can purchase a set of manual hubs made by (WARN)...its more than half the cost, but you will have to turn hubs to lock and unlock manually. Note...you still need to use the gear selector to put and take out 4wd.

2001 sd f250 auto hubs not engaging


It sounds like the electric switch motor, or the relay that powers the motor. Remember 4wd high can be switched at any time below a certain speed(55mph?) but for 4wd Low you must be stopped with the transmission in neutral before it will engage. You might try tapping on either the relay or the motor while someone else works the switch...
