Jack up the vehicle (front and rear) and run it in 4X4 see if one of the front wheels is turning. If it is then probally your bulb is burnt out or possibly a wiring problem with it. If the front axle turns but neither wheel does, its probally the actuator in the front differential or the wiring for it.

How do I know whether 4x4 is working?


that is part time 4wd
and i bet has manual locks on both front axle ends.
how'd i know that.???? grin
first off PT 4wd is for ICE or offroad
SO if NO ICE roads handly (i cant see you drive)
then go off road, or gravel road, or not pavement.
then shift to 4wd.
the rear will have power, for sure.
so that means how to test the front end
i do so on jack stands
put the car up on left side
engine off.
lock the front left lock and right.
now turn the left tire by hand,, bingo you cant.

if you can and the axle behind it does not spin that means the left lock is bad.
if the left axle does turns and so does the right axle , that means th right lock is bad.
3 tire on ground rules. part time.
the front drive shaft will not turn, if it does the transfer case is not in 4H or 4L. if the transfer case is working the rear drive shaft can not turn, in this test. (cuz both tires are on the ground)
see manual locking hubs test here and failure modes.

The 4wd will not engage.


Most likely the front axle actuator,unhook it ,unscrew it from the axle ,then engage the 4x4 ,see if the actuator extends,if not it will need replaced.

How do I set car to be on 4x4?


I believe that Mitsubishi has one of the best and easiest 4X4 selector systems on the Pajero/ Montero. Just below the gear shifter lever is the 4X4 mode selector. A lever like the gear shifter that works in a up, down movement. On your dash board you will notice a sort of axle, chassis diagram in green light. In normal 2WD or 2H mode the lever is set all the way back and on the dash only the rear wheels a lite up in green light on the axle, chassis diagram. This is for normal driving on the highway and smooth roads of dry dirt roads. Pushing the lever up wards while moving at crawling speed will engage the light 4X4 mode which is 4H for when the driving gets a little slippery. All 4 wheels on the axle/ chassis diagram will be lite green. Shifting the lever from the 4H position to the left and upwards will engage the 4HLc mode for 4X4 on sand and deep snow. This will also engage the central diff lock which will show on the axle/ chassis diagram on the dash board with the center box also lite up. Further up from the 4HLc mode and while pushing down on the 4X4 lever push it to the top most position, but only do this when at a stand still with your foot on the brake pedal. This will engage the 4LLc mode with 4X4 and central diff lock on for when driving gets sweaty on thick mud up and incline. To disengage this mode stop, foot on break put it in P and then pull down the lever to one of the lower settings.

4 wheel drive wont engage on my 97 f150


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.

I would suspect that the front drive shaft will not turn, and the issue is with the vacuum shift for the front axle.

The vacuum disconnect motor is on the front axle ( item #10 in the picture below )

Close up of the vacuum disconnect motor ( this is in process of being repaired )
sscullys_74.jpg

The vacuum solenoids are mounted on the firewall, and take vacuum from the vacuum reservoir to move the shift motor when the GEM ( Generic Electrical Module ) calls for a mode ( 2WD or 4WD ).
The Pink line will have vacuum on it when in 2WD mode, the Light Blue when in 4WD.
Use a vacuum gauge to verify that the vacuum is on the line when selecting the mode.

I have a 95 dodge 3500 4x4 service truck when u put it in 4wheel drive it seems like something binds and then pops and then it will roll again im thinking maybe the pinion bearing because i replaced both u...


lift front axle and place on jack stands. place front axle on 4x4 and rotate wheels by hand. If front axles are harder to turn than normal then remove drive shaft from transfer case and rotate front axle once more. this will let you know if the problem is in the front axle or in the tranfer case

I put my 97 F250 in 4wd and only my right rear tire spins. It don't matter if its in low or high. I was on packed snow, and just a slight grade. It is the shifter on the floor not the switch.


Its not your shifter. How to check have someone put it in 4x4 and watch the fornt drive shaft going to the axle if it is turning then its the vaccum pod on the front axle. Location of vaccum pod at the front of the axle (gear pumkin or what ever you want to call it) Should be a black plastic cover on top of it. Unbolt to get to the vaccum pod. I sprayed mine down with WD 40 and tapped on the shaft going into the vaccum pod until it worked free.

Won,t shift transfer case into 4wheel drive


Is the truck on the fly 4X4 push button or is there a lever on the floor you pull into 4 wheel drive? Located on the back of the transfer case not hard to change few bolts and a wire harness. Does the front drive shaft turn when you put it in 4x4 and the front wheels won't ingage? If so then its not your transfer case its the actulator on the front axle at the gear hub or pumpkin it will have two 10mm bolts and a black plastic cover if so remove cover and spray actulator shaft with wd-40.
