Is the shaft from the transfer case to the front axle spinning? Check to see that your locker solenoid is still plugged in there's a plug on the drivers side rear of the engine about 10 inches from the starter that's the plug to the locker solenoid. If its plugged and your front drive shaft from the transfer case spins your locker solenoid is likely bad.

When put in 4 wheel drive the tranfer case engages but the front axle does not turn?


Check the 4WD fuse. They are also prone to bad front axle actuators. They are electrically controlled and sometimes too weak to engage axle shift fork. If fuse good check for power and ground to actuator, if good you'll need an actuator. They do have issues with the transfer case encoder motor, so make sure it actually engages as you said. Front driveshaft turning.

Four wheel drive wont engage. Tranfer case is


Sounds like you either have a vaccum leak or your 4 wheel drive actuator is not working to engage the front differential.On my 98 ram there is a black and red plastic lines that are used for the vaccum lines. They are underneath and go from the transfer case to the front axle, check to see if one or both might be cracked or broke completely.If the lines are good then it could be your actuator on the front axle. A new one is about $93 at advance auto parts and not very hard to replace

95 dodge 1500 4x4 wont engage but transfer case is go in gear?


There is a vacuum switch on top of the transfer case that gets stuck check that. It redirects vacuum to the vacuum actuator on the front axle when the transfer case is shifted into 4x4.

Transfer case wont engage


shift into 4wd and move truck a couple of feet.
if light is still off, park truck block the wheels set the park brake jack right front wheel and try to hand spin the wheel if wheel doesn't turn 4x4 is functioning properly but there is a wiring problem use an ohmmeter to check the 4x4 switch wiring fuse and bulb
if wheel turns freely the front axle or transfer case is not engaged
attempt to hand spin the front driveshft if the driveshaft will spin the transfer case is not engaged check the transfer case shift linkage, problem is in linkage or transfer case internals
if the driveshaft will not spin the transfer case is engaged properly
with trnsmission in neutral or park start engine measure vacuum on the two vac lines at front axle shift motor . one line should have approx 20" vacuum. other line should have none
if no vacuum measured look for vac leak or bad vac switch
if both lines have vac look for a bad vac swithc or ruptured cad actuator diaphragm
if one line has 20" +- VAC
move transfer case lever to 2wd measure vac again lines should have swapped vac signals
if no vac switch bad or 4wd shift likage needs adjusting
if yes vac motor bad or stuck or shift fork stuck
remove vac shift motor from the axle attach vac lines to shift motor engage disengage 4wd
does shift motor plunger move at least 1/2 inch
no shift motor bad
yes check axle shift fork and vac motor for binging

4x4 will not engage. If front differential is messed up the front end wouldnt move at all correct?-


if the frt axle is vacuum actuated it can be either a broken vac line or the vac switch on the transfer case or the actuator on the axle
