For Trackers (and Sidekicks) of this era (1989 to 1998) the front axle locking device is a locking hub on each front wheel. (There are no actuators until the model change in 1999.) Locking hubs come in two flavors, Manual and auto locking hubs. A look at the from wheel should tell you what you have. Manual hubs have a knob like lever with the word "lock" and "free." Auto hubs say "Auto-Locking" right on them. Both types of hubs require servicing periodicity. (Normally annually.) This means removing and disassembling. Then cleaning and light greasing before reassembling. There are some good videos on the web on how to service the manual hubs. Auto hubs are a little harder to ensure they are working properly, but some people like them. (Not me.)
Please note two things:
1. Due to differential action, BOTH hubs need to be locked for any power to be applied to the front wheels.
2. Trackers of this era are PART TIME 4x4, NOT all wheel drive. They have nothing providing for different wheel speeds front to back like a center differential. This means they should NOT be used on non-slippery surfaces like dry pavement. Beside causing handling and braking issues, it can destroy your transfercase driving on dry pavement in 4x4 due to what is called "driveline wind up".
PLEASE if you do not understand this, look it up... if you still do not understand, ask and do not use the 4x4 until you do.
do you mean , no crank or no start? I'll guess at cranks ok , no start. you stated, Ign. term is dead, that is not the Suzuki name. my guess is this car is a 16valve MPI 1.6L Suzuki, G16B and this car is EFI. and this car has 3 power fuses for the ECU, 3. IG-coil FI dome. if IG-fuse is above the right knee, replace that. use a volt meter on both pins if fuse, see 12v, key on>? I guess the CEL lamp dont glow key on, showing a DEAD ECU? The Cel must glow, if not, its burned out,or ECU has no power. etc. ever possible no start is here. http://www.fixkick.com/nostart.html
If you have the manuals that came with the vehicle, check there first Usually it's printed on a separate card. If you don't have that you will have to take the radio out, get the numbers off of it, and call your GM parts dept. They may require more info such as proof of ownership, but they're pretty good about it.
It needs a fluid change,and filter,in the transmission,also,add a additive called LUBEGUARD from napa auto parts,when you ask for the additive,be sure to get the one for gm,this additive keeps the valve body slick,and moving,this is the problem,your filter,and ,or,the fluid is dirty,and causing hydraulic problems,and valves to stick in the valve body in the transmission.
THERE IS A SWITCH UNDERNEATH THE STEERING COLUMN THAT WILL CORRECT THIS PROBLEM. I BOUGHT MY 1994 GEO TRACKER 4X4 BRAND NEW. IT TOOK ME SEVERAL SERVICE APPOINTMENTS FROM MY DEALER BEFORE I GOT THIS INFORMATION FROM MY MECHANIC.
