THE DIFFERENTIAL LOCK IS BLINKING

I HAVE NEVER USED THE 4WD, BUT THE C/D LOCK BLINKS, BUT NOT EVERYTIME. SOMETIMES IT WILL LIGHT UP AND OTHER TIMES IT DOESN'T. I WENT TO THE DEALER ABOUT THE PROBLEM BUT THEY SAID IT WAS NOTHING. WHAT'S THE PROBLEM?

    Front diff engages on its own. It is like it is binding up and engaging. Rapid front tyre wear indicates even when it was blinking it was engaging.

I have the same problem and the dealership is saying that there is a service bulletin that this problem is with the transfer switch. They said that all 5 have to changed. Don't know if they are full of it or not. ;)

My 1994 rodeo won't go into 4wd I lock front hubs in put into 4wd lights come up on dash saying in 4wd but front wheels will not lock in does anyone have any idea


It's probably not the front hubs...it's the transfer case/solenoid.
Sometimes you have to move the vehicle a few feet back and forth to engage the dog clutch; I've found that this works to get it out ?f AWD.
If you haven't changed the transmission or gear case fluid in 30 years you should do that too. AS well as the differential lubes.

2008 Dodge Ram 4WD LOW light blinks while running in 2WD. When applied the 4WD High works fine as well as the 4WD LOW but the light keeps blinking and you can hear the system trying to apply 4WD LOW


Replace the motor/module on the transfercase. It has an internal short. Don't replace it. Soon you will have to replace or rebuild the transfer case and the motor.

I have changed 4WD Actuator on my 2007 Toyota 4Runner. Now the Central Differential Lock isn't coming off when pushing(but don't know if before it was working). I push to Unlock the Differential but i


Put back on H2 or all normal, remove both battery cables from the battery, without touching the battery, hold the positive and the negative cables together for 30 seconds, then return the cables to the proper posts on the battery. This will drain all memory at the ECU, the next 10 or so miles , under normal driving will re- teach the computer. I hope this improves the issue!

I got a 96 chevy 4x4 and my front wheels aren't pulling. i replaced the acuator and still nothing. everything sounds like it is engaging but no turning of the front wheels. do 96 models have auto locking...


96 chevys have a ifs (independent front suspension) this give it more ground clearance but does not have lock out hubs, the cv axles go into the front differential an spin freely until you put it in 4wd, how this works is your transfercase spins the drive shaft that goes into the front differential an while you put it in 4wd it sends power to the actuator to lock the front differential. if your front end isnt pulling you either popped your 1 of your cv axles but if you did this you would know because it makes a very loud thunking noise while you're driving, my guess is you have a short thats not sending power to the actuator. check to see if the wiring harnesses are connected and check if the fuse that operates the 4wd in the cab of the truck is not blown. also actuators for these trucks are horrible they go out alot

How does my 4x4 push button locker work in my 1989 chevy K1500?


That depends a lot on how your truck is equipped. GM uses several different 4 wheel systems including AWD, Part-Time 4WD, Full-Time 4WD, and ON-Demand AWD. Then there is another version used on some trucks that is a combination of 4WD and On Demand AWD. - it gets a little confusing but each system as slightly different charachteristics.

Genericly speaking, if you have the push-buttons on your dash that say "4-HI", "4-LO", and "2HI" and/or Auto-4WD , the transfer case has an electronicly-controlled stepper motor which shifts the transfer case into the selected mode. An electric solenoid/actuator then engages/disengages the front differential for 2-Wheel or 4-Wheel modes. One push of the button and it shifts the transfer case and engages the front differential.

That's much easier than the old days when you had to stop the truck, get out (Sometimes in the middle of a big mud hole) and lock the front hubs then get back in and play with the lever in the floor to get the transfer case to shift into the desired mode.

I just bought a RAV4 in France. Owners manual is


This is a manual center differential lock button for 4WD models.
When you push this button, it manually locks the front and rear axles. An amber C DIFF LOCK light should appear on the dash board when engaged.
Push it again and it will disengage. It may take a few seconds to disengage, and a beeping will be heard until the diff is unlocked.

The center differential lock is only meant to be used in emergency situations. Driving with it engaged at all times can damage your differential.

Form-a-gasket will work, just do not use the crappy blue or the clear, use black, or, if you can find it, the red stuff.
