Why wont my 2006 expedition engage to 4x4 high 2wd awd and 4x4 low all work

I do hope you have electrical experience. The electric shift switch could be bad. Or a fuse could be blown in the fuse panel under the dash or under the hood. There is a control module, however I am not sure where it is on your model, that may need reset. These electric shifts have a tendacy to get out of time and or just go bad. Also the wiring leading to the transfer case could be corroded, You can unplug them and check by looking into both ends of the plug in. If you have someone that can help, Block the wheels and get under the vehicle near the transfer case and listen while the other person turns the key on and turns the switch. There will be a noise made by the electric motor that shifts the transfer case in and out of the different ranges. If you hear this, then the problem may be in the transfer case its self. Be sure to check the wires going to the transfer case are in good shape.

This is about as far as I can help without being there to see for myself. I hope I am not leaving anything out but I do wish you luck.

Good Evening, my 1997 GMC Suburban transmission started slaming into gear and code 1846.

That code is for an encoder motor(shift motor) on the transfer case.Not difficult to change but expensive to buy(200 dollars).Check all the wires and make sure none are nicked and that everything is plugged up good before replacing.You will need to remove front drive shaft to get the encoder motor off the transfer case.The hard shifts are due to a limp condition set by the code being stored.

My 1997 ford explorer 4wd flashes intermittenly and does not want to go out of 4 wheel drive

There could be many causes but based on your vehicle, I would start with the electric shift motor. It is not uncommon for the shift motor to fail or freeze up. Sometimes it just boils down to lack of use. The electric shift motor, mounted externally at the rear of the transfer case, moves the transfer case from 2WD, 4WD HIGH, and 4WD LOW. It should be located on the driver's side of the transfer case. While parked with your transmission in neutral, have a friend watch the shift motor while you switch from 2WD to 4WD and back. The movement of the cam on the shift motor should be visible as well as audible. If no movement, in some cases it can be manually assisted by hand. Just a place to start.

Four wheel drive want engage

The most common problem with those systems is the electric transfer case 4x4 motor mounted on the rear of the transfer case next to the rear drive shaft.They are actually easy to replace.There is a wire that comes out of the transfer and goes into the electric motor for the 4x4 that you need to be carfull of.This wire is a speed sensor wire and will need to be reatatched to the new transfer 4x4 motor so make sure to leave enough to reatatch wire now and in the future.There is no plugin for that wire I don't know why ford built it that way.

How to replace transfer case shift motor

I have a 1999 f-150. It does not shift into 4WD (hi or low). I checked the fuses and they are ok. I think I may need a new shift motor. Is there a way to test the old motor or should I just replace it? Are there any special instructions for changing the shift motor?

Thank You
