These options no longer work. Could be the switch, shifter or transfer case . have it checked out by a transmission repair shop.

When you start the car the 4 wheel high and 4 wheel low indicators light and flash four times,


To make the lights stop blinking and actually engage the transfer case you have to maintain the electric motor that engauges the transfer case. the contact points inside get worn and corroded and wont allow enough power through to rotate the servo. The motor is located on the transfer case and is held of by 3 bolts, remove and unplug. Any good 4-wheel drive shop can fix it for you for about $50 or you can take it apart and clean the contact points inside and relubricate it yourself in about 15 minutes. reinstall and your 4 wheel drive will stop flashing and actually work.

Have a 1997 ford explorer 4wd and 4wlow lites blink 6 times every 3 minutes. how do i fix this?


Do you have it switched to 4 wheel low? If not it indicates a problem with the 4 wheel drive sustem. Take it to a mechanic for proper diagnosis.

The switch to engage 4 wheel drive is not working.


No the switch is okay there is a transfer case control module that blinks tose lights when there is a problem. You need to fing a compatible scan tool and get the codes from the transfer case controller to diagnose the fault otherwise it will just stay in 2WD.

have your trans oil checked it is telling you that something is not right
most cars dont have a trans oil check light so they use the OD OFF light as a warning

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
