4wheel drive on 2000dodge durango


Look under your truck and see if the shift lever is connected to the transfer case.
Quite often the cotter pin that holds that together comes out, if that's the case just put a new one in and it will engage and stay engaged.

4 wheel drive quit at some time didn't know it...drives fine only rear wheels pulling..could it be electrical ??


I hava a 1999 Grand cherokee loredo V8 with full time 4wheel drive. when the rear tires slip I am hearing a poping noise in the front end when the 4wheel drive engages. I was told by one person that it could be the chain in the transfer case slipping but I was told by a jeep salesman that this year jeep did not have a chain. Could this be the CV joints in the front axels?

2006 F-150: 06 ford f150 will not go into 4wheel drive...


Is the system ESOF ( Electronic Shift On the Fly ) or MSOF ( Mechanical Shift On the Fly ) ?

Operationally vacuum holds the IWE ( Integrated Wheel Ends ) out, and once vac is removed the spring engages the IWE.
Usually the problem ( with 04-08 MY ) is the front axle will not disengage.

Lift and support the front of the truck so the front wheels are off the ground ( take safety precautions, chock wheels, jack stands, etc )
Key on, engage 4x4 and try to turn the front drive shaft.
If it turns it is a problem with the transfer case.
If it doesn't it is a front axle engagement problem.

- If the front drive shaft does not turn :
Shut of the truck ( still jacked up, and supported ) remove the vac lines from the IWE. The spring should push the gears in, without the vac line on. Actually any time the truck is not running, after the vacuum bleeds out, the front IWEs will engage while it is parked.

Here is a block diagram of the IWE system

If the front axle turns, the shift motor ( on the ESOF ) would be the issue. Some times the connector on the back of the transfer case gets corroded and needs to be cleaned. Other problems could be a hung up shift motor, some have tapped on the back of the transfer case to free it up again.

Transfer case into 4wheel drive the frount axle dose not engage


There is a solenoid plunger that is screwed into front axle. Unscrew the plunger turn key on put into 4 wheel dive and verify that plunger is moving. If no movement you have to find out why. If moving, then front axle has a issue. Hope this helps.

Four wheel drive locked in but front tires wont spin in 96 chevorlet sliverado


If the Tires wont spin then it isnt locked in.
If it really is engaged like you think it is and they dont turn then something is broken in the differential. If that was the case then it should be makeing lots of noise.
Now it is very very common for the electro-mechanical device that engages the the 4wheel drive at the differential to go bad. If you look at the front differential you cant miss the 4 wheel drive actuator. It has a couple wires that come out and plug into the wiring harness.
Usually if this part fails I understand the 4wheel drive indicator lights wont come on? I could be wrong on that. My sub is 3 years older and that was the case with it.
