Having owned a trans shop years ago,I would suggest you never engage the front wheels on a 4x4 or all wheel or run any vehicle, off the ground, that has drive axles and cv joints.
You may not have any problems,but without the wheels on the ground, it seems you do.
There is no true 4x4. Only one wheel drives in the front and rear,on any vehicle,except in theory.
Keeping in mind, that most veh have ABS Systems, that control drive and braking systems,your most likely disabling and confusing those systems,when it is off the ground.

    does it howl or growl when driving(up and down) with accel/decel? YES? front hub bearing.
    Does it clunk? cv joint. Does it squeal or grind? brake pads,dust shield against rotor,loose caliper.

2004 Ford Explorer AWD. what could be wrong? abs light is on, 4 wheel drive ligh is flashing, truck is stuck in 4 wheel drive


Sounds like you have an electronic shift diff to put it in 2 or 4 wheel drive. You could have a bad position sensor, or shift motor/linkage problem. Unfortunately, unless you have the diagnostic tool to see which is the problem, it is best to take it too a good tranny shop.

START WITH THE ACTUATOR. THIS LOCK IT INTO FOUR WHEEL DRIVE. IT SHOULD BE ON THE FRONT AXLE AND HAVE A COUPLE WIRES GOING TO IT. FIRST CHECK THE CONECTONS AND GO FROM THERE.

Does my 2003 ford explorer sport have front wheel drive, rear wheel drive or all wheel drive. my email is kmmock1@gmail.com


it is most likely an automatic awd, 4 hi is full time 4 wheel drive, 4 lo is full time 4 wheel drive but at a very low gear ratio and should not exceed 25 mph or could cause damage. and DO NOT shift into 4 lo while vehicle is in motion. Auto is a 2 wheel drive but automatically engages into 4 wheel drive under heavy acceleration.

I just bought a 97 Ford Explorer AWD. V8. The AWD will not kick in when the wheels spin.


Check and see if you have locks that have to be turned on the front wheels, in the center of the hub to lock the front wheels into 4WD.

Best regards,
