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.

Your vehicle is an old OBD1 Vehicle.
Forget fuses and sensors,they have no role

Check for vacuum to the front axle vacuum actuator,when in 4 wheel
The console shift indicator bulb, is probably burnt out

Front end will not lock in in 4x4 transfer case is in & dash lite shows 4x4 but front wheels don;t lock in


Ok, this is probably going to sound greek if you have no automotive experiance, so here goes:

There are 2 possibilities I can think of at the moment depending on your 4wd system, however there are several things that can cause this

If you have a Push button 4wd (you push a button or turn a knob) the system engages using actuators or sylinoids meening you turn the 4wd on, the switch sends power to the selector option (high and low) and the 4wd light on the dash. the selector determines where the actuator/silenoid engages (either high or low) in the transfer case. However the actuator or silenoid can be faulty and yet the system will say 4wd is on because the switches still sending power to the 4x4 light

The next setup is the manual linkage set up, and given the year of your kia I doubt you have this setup However I am going to go through it anyway.

With a maual linkage setup you engage the trasfer case maualy using the 4wd shifter. Ironically on newer manual shift 4wd systems the dash light is still triggered electrically by location of the shifter not what is going on in the transfer case (Ah a flaw in the design) So if you linkage is loose/bent/damaged or somehow disconnected your 4wd wont engage but the light will still show that it is! Hope this helps

98 f-150 4x4 ,when you turn 4x4 sw ,relay in dash clicks about 6 time ,but no 4x4 light in dash and it don't lock in


Is the system ESOF ( Electronic Shift On the Fly ) or MSOF ( Mechanical Shift On the Fly ) ? 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.

AUTO 4X4 FORD BRONCO NOT SURE IF 4X4 IS INGAGING


I'll bet you've also got auto locking hubs. If you do, replace them. If you don't, you might have a bad transfer case.
