SOURCE: 4x4 will not engage,lights just blink,and you can here clicking

The 4x4 system has a controller,or computer,called the Body Control Module and there will be stored trouble codes.To work on a system that's electronically controlled,you have to get the codes from the system.Every trouble code has a diagnostic route to follow to resolve the faulty component.I have read about Explorers having faulty door open/closed sensors.These set a code in the Body Control Module,and in the process,the BCM inhibits 4x4 operation,causing a no 4 wheel drive complaint.There is also an electric motor on the transfer case that can fail electrically or mechanically,along with speed sensors and fork position sensors that can give trouble.

If you have auto locking hubs then you need to see if you are getting good vacuum to the front axel and check for a blown fuse or bad accuater

SOURCE: Single power door lock does not work

If it doesn't work from master switch then the door lock motor actuator will need to be replaced, this requires pulling the door panel.

Don't drive around with H4 engaged all the time. You will feel power loss on the highway and wear out the tires prematurely. Find another mechanic! Get it fixed right.

Smoking from rear tire on passenger side,what could it be


Is your parking brake fully dis-engaged? It could be a wheel braring, too. Raise that tire off the ground and spin it and shake it. If you have any noticeable play or wobble, check the wheel bearings

Unless you have a locking differential in the rear, then the drivers rear would just spin, and the passenger side rear would do nothing. Now on the front, the passenger side front is the power wheel. If the passenger side front wasn't spinning either, then you may have an actuator problem. The other problem too look into would be the TCCM (transfer case control module) could be going bad.

92 wrangler wont go into four wheel


If you have an actuator box on the passenger front axle that may be disconnected or broken. If not remove the cover from the front differential and check the gears...they may be broken.

My 2002 2500HD 4x4 front axle not engaging


Try jacking up one side of the front and putting it on a jackstand. Then turn key on(but dont start it) and put it in 4hi. Try to spin the tire in the air. The drive shaft should not turn nor the wheel. If the wheel does then maybe the acuator is not moving in the axle. It worked when you pulled it out but it might be hanging up on something in the axle.

sometimes it is necessary to put in reverse and then forward after settting 4 wheel. That ensures all pressure on any gears is removed. The older the vehicle the more the gears need help to align and engage. Good luck-Ned

How does 4 wheel drive work?


Hi there , in order for your 4 wheel to work you have to drive a couple feet for everything to lock. If you are already stuck and you put it into 4 wheel, it won't engage. hope this helps you out

Tacoma 4x4 not engaging


Do you have all 4 tires matched to each other? If you have 1 worn and 3 new, expect problems. Also, 2 tires on the front from 1 mfgr and 2 on the rear from a different mfgr will cause no 4WD. If all 4 tires match, put it in 4WD and tap on the transfer case and the front shift mechanism on the front axle. One or the other may be stuck, assuming that the 4WD fuse is good. The fuse is in the fusebox under the dash.
