If you jack up the tires on the front end and manually rotate the left side of front wheel, the right side should remain stationary if the 4-wheel drive is truly disengaged.

Once you confirm that, check that the connector to the actuator switch is ok. It's mounted on the front axle on the drivers side. Check all the vacuum hoses attached to it as well.

I have a 97 isuzu rodeo 4x4 v6, the other day I switched from two wheel into four wheel high and after trying to shift into two wheel again it won't but shifts between 4 hi n 4 low


the operators guide tells tells you, dont do that.
its not AWD, its part time system. like jeeps.
if not on ice or dirt stay out of 4wd. its only for that.
never on dry pavement.
and the dangers to you and transfer case.
im sure your car is not AWD or Full time 4wd.

so this page applies, (posted over 100 times but no one searches)
your car has no center differential, so..... stop expecting one.

http://www.rubicon-trail.com/4WD101/driveline-bind.html

so drive to dirt../sand, gravel or grass and shift out steer gently.
or jack up one tire, and shift out.
2 choices to recovery,
post 101..... LOL

Changed to 4wheel drive low and I can't get it to change back to 2 wheel drive.


1999 Blazer. Thing's to check. 4x4 problem. There's an actuator pump under your battery plate. Make sure its in good shape and its working proper. Next check the cable that runs from the pump to the front transfer case. Then check the actuator switch on the front transfer case. Then check the vacuum lines from the front transfer case to the rear transfer case, that should be right under the drivers side door. There's also a actuator switch on the rear transfer case witch two vacuum lines run out of. Check them also, and last check your fluid level in your transfer case. Start from the beginning to the end. Don't forget to use your 4x4 every know and then to keep it up to power. Its not like the good old days. Where a pull of the lever on the floor engaged the 4x4. I hope this helps.

4 Wheel drive (Manual trans) not engaging


First, IF your vehicle has a true manual-engage for the 4-wheel drive, then you either have a linkage that needs adjusted, or there is a problem inside the transfer-case (ie- broken shift-lever, broken chain, or loose gear, depending on which metod of drive it has (they WERE gear-to-gear, in my 1981 Isuzu, which means no chain to break...)
OR- if your vehicle has the same system of activation on the 4-wheel drive, as the Chevrolets of that era (Isuzu and Chevrolet were together and may still be), it's probably a vacuum problem. See, there is a vacuum-pot that pulls the cable to actuate (lock-in) the front-axle, using vacuum from a line on the transfer-case (vacuum that comes from the engine). IF there is a hole in any of the lines &/or if the vacuum-pot itself has a hole in it, then your 4-wheel drive linkage (on the front-axle) WON'T be pulled-in, so it won't engage, at all. This happened to me in my 2000 ZR2 during a snow-storm! It clicked, but wouldn't engage.
Go online or get a reference-manual from Oreilly's, Autozone, etc. to see how your system is actually actuated.
If it is manually actuated, then look for a linkage or a line that needs adjusted (HOPE it's not inside the case!) or IF it is vacuum actuated, then you can test it by starting the engine and spraying all the lines and the vacuum-pot with WD40 or other aerosol, to see if the engine revs- which will tell you where the problem (leak) is.
Either way, GOOD luck!

Holden rodeo 4x4 not engaugeing


ther will probably be a vacuum operated actuator on the shaft to engage the transfer case. Check to see if it has vacuum and is actually working because without it there will be no front wheel drive

I have a 93 ford 250 7.3 deisel standard with a manual 4x4 and it wants to keep jumping from 2 wheel drive to 4 wheel drive and the 4x4 shifter doesn't want to push down into nuteral


Check out F150OwnersBlog.com or 4x4Owners Blog. It sounds like the actuator inside the transfer case is stuck.

If this is the Vacuum shift setup, the plunger inside the 4x4 box is sticking. You also could have low vacuum pressure from a bad Vacuum pump on the engine.

The Electric setups worked differently. The voltage running to the underside wires to the shift solenoid had set values to extend and retract the solenoid plunger. Often, a burned out light in the inside Selector switch on the dash would affect the Voltage sent to the solenoid. A silly thing like changing the indicator bulb would restore the proper voltage underneath the truck.

Remember to sequence the trans to neutral before engaging some of the transfer cases.

I hope my solution is helpful.

Tod system on 98 bighorn check light and rear wheels flashing on dash when ingnition on and stays on not pulling front diff out of ingagement vsv are ok and work no power at them but have earth on both so...


check out detent limit switches on gear box and transfer case for continuity and open circuit when pressed(on /off switch) these are feed back signals to indicate it has locked into 4x4 or 2x4, if one of these dont work properly system locks up and wont do anything any more. also check front one on diff near actuator, common problem. check actuator is working properly when vacuum applied and removed. can remove this and bench test unit,some oil will be lost when removed for bench test and you can check colar inside diff slides back and forth to lock axle.
