If this is a Mechanical Actuator, then you need to find the Actuator Rod and adjust the throw to ensure it stays engaged.

Electrical Motor, you are getting a loose connection that is lacking a signal and then engages when the loose wire is causing the problem.

How to test my 4 wheel drive electricals

On my 4 wheeler if I raise the front wheels off the ground and with the 4 wheel drive engaged you should not be able to turn the front tires two revolutions. You need to be more specific as to what you are trying to do because there are other electrical things that can be checked. Like if the 4 wheel drive will not engage. Previous test is only to see if the front end is engaged in 4 wheel drive.

I have a 2001 Polaris Scrambler. One of the front wheels stays engaged when the machine is switched into 2-wheel drive. Any ideas?

check the wires that come out of the hubs and make sure they did not get snaged on somthing and torn apart

an ohm test on the hub coil wires will identify whether or not it is a bad magnet. test between the brown and grey wires and thisd should be aruond 27 ohms. then test brown to ground this should be open. you can also test 12volt power to the coil between thos two wires
