Hi and welcome to FixYa!

This is a common problem on 4 wheel drive. As a first course of action please do try to check the connections of the transmission solenoids. The sockets can be corroded which may result to transmission failure specially on the forward or reverse.

If the solenoids are clean and still doesn't work then it surely is faulty. Have it tested and replace if necessary.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

This could be a couple of different things. It could be the 4 wheel drive solenoid under the hood on the passenger side. It could be that the actuator motor has gone bad.

Heard a clunk while driving diesel ford excursion now when drive and reverse don't work....any ideas what problem is?


If it is a four wheel drive check your tail shaft or drive line by securing the vehicles front wheels jack up the rear tires and in park try to rotate the drive line if you can hear the transmission sound like it is going into gear the transfer case could be damaged! If not a four wheel drive pull the transmission dipstick and look to see if the fluid is dark red or metallic grayish color if so then you're clutch disks inside the tyranny have been worn out and it needs to be rebuilt!

Feels like front diff is binding


Is it possible that when you replaced the differential you bumped the shifter, causing it to not completly shift into gear? The phrasing of your question is difficult to understand, but good luck.

I have 2002 and I find that you have to come to a complete stop, put it in reverse momentarily, and that should take care of it. Cheaper than going to the dealer and having them really fix it!!!

2005 Kia Sorento - in 4 wheel drive, on dry pavement, going slow in forward, turning a corner to the left the rear drivers side wheel tries going in reverse and when turning right the passenger side wheel...


Hi,
Yes, this is normal while in four wheel drive on pavement.
I will try and explain why.
In four wheel drive the front and rear drive axles are linked together by a chain in the transfer case and gears in both axles. This is a direct link with very little play between the front and rear axles.
When cornering a rear wheel will spin faster, or slower depending on the direction of the turn. this causes a binding in the drive line because the drive line wants all the wheels to turn at the same speed. So the wheel "skipping" going in reverse, is the drive lines way of compensating for the different speed of the wheels turning.
Never should a four wheel drive be used on dry pavement. I could cause a break in one of the drive line components. On a slippery surface , snow, mud, gravel, grass, There is enough slippage in the surface to aloow the driveline to compensate for the different speeds of tire rotation.
So do not try at highway speeds on dry pavement.
Your four wheel drive system is working just fine.

My Suzuki jimny will not go into four wheel drive, the four wheel drive light is on on the dash,it is a 2004 thanks.


Will the leaver not move? Try reversing a little, the forward. This might let it slip in place. Sometimes you get transmission wind up, causing the 4wd drive not to enguage.
If it won't come back out try the forward and reverse thing again.
I don't understand the light being on and your still not getting 4WD!

How do i get the 4x4 off . i have turn the switch and it is not working.


If you don't use the four wheel drive much the parts have a tendency to get sticky. Try driving the vehicle in forwards than reverse, turn the selector switch , back to two wheel drive while the vehicle is in neutral.

Four wheel drive won't work


The motor for the four wheel drive engagement on the transfer case is notorious for sticking, try pulling it out and then operating to see if it works.
