Check to see if the front drive shaft is turning. If it is and the wheels are
not moving. Check the vacum actuator, located under the battery pan.
Make sure there are no leaks or kinks in the lines, do the same at the vacum solenoid valve. If these check out. Check the clutch cable from
the actuator to the front axel. Make sure it's not broken or kinked, as
the cable engages and disengages the front axel. But if the front drive
shaft is turning. And it's an electric shift control check the fuse first.
If it is transfer case related I will need to know whether it's manual or electric shift. You can get back to us with that info if neccesery.
Or if you find a problem with any of the parts I have mentioned.
Hope this helps. Good luck.

Four wheel drive engages and kicks out, light comes on and stays on and then kicks out the transfer case shifter


I would suspect you have a bad wheel speed sensor or a speed sensor defective... do you have an ABS/CheckEngine/4 wheel drive light on somewhere on the vehicle display... That might help fix the problem.

Transmission kicks in first gear and reverse/drive positions. Why


check for broken motor mounts. if it is a rear wheel/4 wheel drive, check your u-joints in your driveshaft. if the aforementioned is good, check the fluid level and condition in your transmission. last resort, if rear/4 wheel drive: check your rearend fluid level and condition.

On a 1997 ford expedition, how do you change from 2wd to 4wd?


If you can't find the 4 X 4 switch, then your expedition is probably All Wheel Drive and it will not have an on or off. If it is "all wheel drive" it is like it is in four wheel drive all the time and will kick in when it feels a wheel slip. Check your owner's manual and you will probably find that it is all wheel drive. Hope this helps.

2001 gmc jimmy keeps kicking into 4 wheel drive


the 4 wheel low light will usually only blink because the low gear is meant for a very slow speed and usually wont activate with the vehicle in motion i would have to say the sudden switch to 4x4 though would probably be a short in the wiring some place
