    You did understand my problem. The wheels DO NOT turn at all because the transmission is locked-up. Maybe it doesn't have anything to do with the 4x4 feature.

Just thinking about this makes me laugh. It's not funny to you but if I was going to do this to someone on purpose. I'd put power steering fluild or ransmission fluild in the master cyclinder of the braking system. it swells up the seals in the master cyclinder and the pressure of putting the brake on can't return to the master cyclinder cause the seeals won't back up far enough to let the pressure release. To make sure this is the problem, loosen the brake lines wher they connect to the master cyclinder if doing this releases the brakes, Then replace the master cyclinder ( or have it done by a professional mechanic) then flush the rest of the system bleeding the system till freash fluild comes though. I see this problem about once a year as well meaning but unknowing person try to keep everything filled up. Yes and it could have been done on purpose, so watch out. Yes other things will make it lock too, put super glue on all the brakes. gear box failures will let the wheels turn a little bit, not locked.

Some vehicles go into and out of it while in motion. If you try in stationary vehicle it does not come out. Try to disengage the 4WD while the car is in motion. I also had one such SUV that unknowingly I drove for over 100 miles till told by a mechanic how to disengage the 4WD.

My 4x4 is not engaging on my 2004 Chevy trailblazer, any ideas?


Assume for an instant that the transfer case is actually working. The next area to check is the hub actuators or that the front hubs are actually engaging to drive the wheels. Remember it requires both hubs to be locked in for the 4x4 to work or else if only one hub is locked then the front diff will work and all the drive will be to the wheel that is not locked in
The cost to check is really cheap. just jack the front off the ground and see if both wheels are engaged . Do this by placing in 4x4 and have a friend hold a wheel while you turn the other wheel or try to turn the other wheel. BY holding one wheel ,if the hubs are locked in then you will not be able to turn your wheel. Ensure that the transmission is in gear as if you are driving the vehicle.

Do both rear wheels have traction when your 4x4 is not engaged and if not then how does the 4wd work


independent 4x4 manages each wheel in turn applying power to the wheel with the most resistance and less power to wheels that have low road resistance, manual 4x4 has power to the differencials of the front and rear axals even if one wheel of each axal has no traction with a dif lock in place the wheels will keep turning. it can be that when a 4x4 is disengaged that the diferencial is no longer locked, then if one wheel has no traction the vehicle will stop moving and the power will got out through the wheel with least resistance and cause it to spin. also some vehicles have a limited slip differentical that has a small clutch plate build in the ensure that wheel spin is reduced.

Wheel get locked up in 4x4


I know what they did!, and the only thing you can do is take it back to the dealer. They have put in a different diff ratio. jack up one side of your car with 4X4 rotate your wheels your front diff goes 5 revolutions and your rear may turn 4 or 6 turns, when your wheels turn at different rates it increases the load on your drive line, if your wheels don't slip you must break something

Wheels lock up in 4x4


take it back to the dealer and have them fix it properly. It is obvious that it was not road tested before delivery back to you.

I HAVE AN 09 RAV4 THAT IS A 4X4. THERE IS NO LEVER OR BUTTON TO PUSH TO ENGAGE THE 4 WHEEL DRIVE - ONLY A BUTTON TO LOCK THE DIFFENTRIAL. DOES THIS MEAN IT IS ALL WHEEL DRIVE, AND IF SO WHY IS THERE A 4X4...


probably the same button that locks the differential automatically locks the 4x4. if the 4x4 light is on your dash then the 4x4 should be working

4x4 problems


What make, model, and year is your truck? Does it have AWD or just 4-wheel drive? What selector knob to you have for 4x4 (gear shifter or electrical switch?) Does your vehicle have limited slip or locking differentials? If you have an electrical selector with locking (limited slip) diffs and AWD, that is normal for it to automatically switch into 4x4 when you loose traction.

Green indicator light on 1998 kia sportage


That light sounds like a differential lock or 4-wheel drive. This is usually found in 4-wheel drive and all-wheel drive vehicles. Being the light is "GREEN" and not amber or red tells me that it's not an abnormal problem.

Look around your dashboard or gearshifter for a button labeled 4x4 HI, 4x4 LO, 4x2 HI. sport/off road button, or a second, smaller shifter. Switch them around a little, and if it is a 4x4 selector, be sure when you drive on paved roads to have it set to 4x2 HI. 4x4 HI should only be used if you get stuck to help you get out (snow/mud) and 4x4 LO is only for off road driving (trail blazing/rock climbing/4-wheeling/mud bogging,etc.)

Also, check for any switches labled "DIFF LOCK" or 'AXLE LOCK". In most cars a green light is normal operations.

I hope I could help you find a solution to your problem.
