How do I get my 96 GMC out of 4wd back into 2wd. It is stuck in 4wd.


Stop the truck, put the transmission shifter in neutral, foot on the brakes, select 2Hi or 2WD and then put the truck into reverse and back up about 10 car lengths until the 4WD light goes out.

Engage 4wd lever. no light on. bulb good. not even sure if front wheels engaged. engage 4wd low. low engaged but still not sure if front wheels are and still no indicator light


Good Afternoon. We use these type trucks for our plowing during the winter so I am familiar with what you're going through. There is a fuse for the 4wd, and there is an actuator in the front differential. What you might try first is to get under the truck and pull out the actuator and then put it in 4wd if it moves out it is locking in your front end. Hope that helps.

MY 4x4 on my excursion is stuck and does not want to come off how do i get it to come of and back to 2w drive?


Without the ability to diagnose the problem further, obvious things need to be eliminated. First step, with engine running and foot on brake, shift transmission to neutral. Then slowly turn Four Wheel Drive (4WD) selector knob out of 4WD Low to 4WD High, and then finally to 2 Wheel Drive. "4x4" and "LOW RANGE" indicator lights on the instrument panel should no longer be illuminated. If this does not work, you should visit FixYa for further help or take it to the shop for proper diagnosis. Hopefully, this will help you to FixYa problem!

1993 jeep cherokee sport 4wd, when i start it the engine runs strong, i put my foot on the break and put it in a gear (this is in both 4wd and 2wd) and it still runs with my foot on the break, but as soon...


Will the car move at all. If you put it in gear and let your foot off brake , does it move untill you touch gas , or does it jam up as soon as wheels start to turn. I am suspecting problem with diff.
Doubtfull about trans filter.

Ok i have a 1999 ford ex and i got a new battry for it and look at some fuse but now the 4x4 light is on on my dashbord and when i swick it two 4w it drive bad and truns left real slow some on help


If the 4wd light is not flashing, then it is likely it stuck in 4wd (possbily on accident?). The slow turning and bad driving indicates that it may be in 4wd Low. They only way to take it out of 4wd Low is to put the truck in nuetral and with your foot on the brake, switch the dial (or floor lever) to 2wd. The light should go out almost immediately. Then put the shifter in drive from nuetral and drive at least 15 feet forward. That will disengage the front hubs and you should be all set.

Hope this helps.

4wd not engaging no indicater lgt basicaly no 4wd


I had a prolem with my 1998 Ford Explorer XLT. The 4wd indicator light would randomly start to blink while moving and when I flipped the switch to 4wd hi or low it would engage but easily disengage and the indicator lights would not come on. I was hearing a grinding sound coming from my hubs so I replaced both front hub assemblies and the light stopped blinking and 4wd hi/low works great now. it was about 300 bucks for the hub assemblies and only took me an hour or two to change.
