    manual or autolocking ? do you have the shifter or knob that selects ?

  • bfarvefan11 Mar 15, 2011

    Hubs are auto and it has a shifter for 4 wheel drive. I found a vacume line that had come off but it still doesnt work and can hear whining noise from the passenger side hub.

  • bfarvefan11 Mar 15, 2011

    I found the vacume line was off and I put it back on but it sounds like it is trying to engage the hub. Is there a pump that could be bad?

If your truck has Vacume actuated hubs check the vacume lines running to the hubs right behind the brake rotor. If it has the electronic actuated hubs, check connectors / and or replace actuator motor on the front diff. Also possible Transfer case motor seized if you have push button 4x4

SOURCE: 2004 ford f150 4 wheel high will not engage 4 low

Operationally vacuum holds the IWE ( Integrated Wheel Ends ) out, and once vac is removed the spring engages the IWE.

Lift and support the front of the truck so the front wheels are off the ground ( take safety precautions, chock wheels, jack stands, etc )
Key on, engage 4x4 and try to turn the front drive shaft.
If it turns it is a problem with the transfer case.
If it doesn't it is a front axle engagement problem.

- If the front drive shaft does not turn :
Shut of the truck ( still jacked up, and supported ) remove the vac lines from the IWE. The spring should push the gears in, without the vac line on.
Check the vent line ( tube that is routed into the engine compartment with nothing attached to it ), for blockages.
If the vent line is clear, and with the vac lines off the IWE should be engaged ( both front wheels locked ).
If they lock, the problem is with the IWE solenoid not shutting off vacuum to the IWEs. There is a TSB on the 2004-2006 IWE solenoids, a newer revision has been made, and used from 2007 and newer MYs.

Here is a block diagram of the IWE system

Already replied to your other post on the same topic :
http://www.fixya.com/cars/t3532879-2004_ford_f150_supercrew_will_not_engage

Could be a problem with the vac lines to the IWE ( Integrated WheelEnds ), or a problem with the IWE solenoid, or a problem with the ventfrom the IWE.

Start with checking the vac lines, to make sure they are not cracked.
The vac res & IWE solenoid are behind the battery. Here is a diagram of the parts in the IWE vac system

There was a TSB for the 2004-2006 MYs with a bad design IWE solenoid, but this usually was coupled with noise in 2WD.
Start with checking the VAC lines and the vent, next would be to check the IWE solenoid.

I'll assume that you have a 4x4 switch on the dash; check the shifting motor and plug on the transfer case, or the digital output from the GEM module which controls the 4x4 operation.

Have the cruise control module checked. They recalled some about improper wiring and fire hazards when the vehicles are parked; but in motion problem might cause vehicle to act like cruise was kicked in.
