Sometimes these shift cables get stuck or sticky from lack of use. You have to get underneath and see where the shift cable is and lube it up with WD 40 or other spray lube. You may have to replace the cable altogether.
Good luck and thanks for your question and I hope my suggestions help. burdfrenzy

How do I use the 4 wheel drive on my 1998 Ford explorer. It has a switch that can be turned to auto, 4 low, or 4 high


you can switch into and out of the auto or 4 high modes while moving.

If you want to use 4 low you must stop and place your transmission in neutral. While stopped, turn the switch to 4 low. To get out of 4 low, again stop and in neutral switch back to desired mode. DO NOT SWITCH TO 4 LOW WHILE MOVING!

My 97 explorer has a vibration in the frontend like its in 4x drive but i can feel it engage and disengage


Does dash indicate whether it's in 2 wheel, 4 hi,or 4 low?It sounds like it might be in 4 wheel low.With the car running in Park, try turning dash knob from 2 wheel to 4 wheel low and then back to 2 wheel..now depress the brake pedal. Instructions to to do this are usually on the driver's side sun visor.

Will not go in 4 low 4x4 lights start blinking after trying . reset light by unhooking battery . then goes in 4 high normelly but not 4 low. i thlnk auto 4 is working 4 liter SOHC 1998


Normally 4 wheel drive HIGH is engaged on the fly or as you are moving more than 10 km per hour or 10 miles per hour but 4 wheel drive LOW is engaged at around 3 to 5 mph. no more or you could ruin the transfer case. Try going from 2 high to 4 high by switching back and forth and then try 2 high to 4 low when idling along. What usually happens is the mechanics under the car freeze up or rust up and you have to switch back and forth to free it up.
