Moter engaging wheels not turning

When I engage the throttle the wheels don't turn but while its engaged I can move it manually with my foot. when I disengage the throttle the breaks lock normally. I was wondering if it could be the moter brushes before I spend the money on new brushes.

Thank You

Hi Jimmy. Does your machine display and flashing lights, if it does, count the flashes between the pauses. This is a fault code. If you let us know how many flashes, we can help you.
It might be a stuck motor brush. Undo the caps and see if either brush is stuck. A light file with a fine file might help. Careful tightening the brush caps as they can crack if done up to tight.
Good luck. Neil.

Why when mobility scooter not moving when engaged but when disengaged moving slightly


The unit is not made for "medical approved" market and does not have a POST (Power On Self Test) to confirm wig-wag (throttle) is in neutral when it first turns on. SOLUTION: Put the scooter up on blocks so the drive wheels are off the ground. With the SPEED KNOB turned fully clockwise, adjust the wig-wag (throttle) so the cart will not run and the brake is engaged when the cart is in neutral. There are usually Allen screws in the wig-wag handle that can be loosened and re-tightened once the wig-wag pot is properly centered for neutral.

I don't have the owners manual, and have never owned a 4x4 in the past, as stupid as this sounds i don't know the proper procedure to engage 4 wheel drill hi


you have a lever or switch that engages 2wheel normal driving 4 wheel high for wet slippery conditions ,then you have four wheel low for real muddy and deep snow conditions
normally change from 2 wheel to four wheel high on the move .important nearly all 4 wheel drive vehicles must be stopped to engage low otherwise do damage to transmission

4 wheel drive not engaging


The neutral/foot on brake or park is only if you are shifting into 4L. If you are shifting into 4H, applying light throttle up to 55 mph shift on the fly is fine ( per owners manual ).

Operationally vacuum holds the IWE ( Integrated Wheel Ends ) out, and once vac is removed the spring engages the IWE.

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.

- If the front drive shaft does not turn :
Shut of the truck ( still jacked up, and supported ) remove the vac lines from the IWE. The spring should push the gears in, without the vac line on.
Check the vent line ( tube that is routed into the engine compartment with nothing attached to it ), for blockages.
If the vent line is clear, and with the vac lines off the IWE should be engaged ( both front wheels locked ).
If they lock, the problem is with the IWE solenoid not shutting off vacuum to the IWEs. There is a TSB on the 2004-2006 IWE solenoids, a newer revision has been made, and used from 2007 and newer MYs.

Here is a block diagram of the IWE system
0fa4f4b.jpg
If the front drive shaft turns, I have seen some lightly hit the back of the transfer case, to free up the shift motor, with mixed results.
If you had a vacuum leak, the front wheels would be locked in, or poping in and out of locked in, causing a grinding noise ( IWE gears not engaging fully, grinding the teeth off ).

If you find a problem with the vacuum lines or the IWE solenoids, you can pull the vacuum lines and plug them, this would leave the front wheels locked in all the time. Fine for short use, don't try racing like this ( pushing a dead axle is a lot of HP requirements )

As soon as i turn it on, the needle starts moving up and down even though i don;t have my foot on the pedal at all.


as you turn on the motor starts running. but when you press pedal there is a clutch that engages. probably the clutch keeps engaged. clutch needs to be set to engage on pressing pedal only.

4x4 transimission clunks when engaged?


When engaging the 4WD system, you are pulling the lever on the Transfer Case right? Not the transmission, it's a different gearbox.
There were several versions of transfer cases that used both full and part-time 4 wheel drive.
From your description this sounds like a part-time transfer case.
Going with that, it is somewhat normal to hear and feel a mild clunk when engaging 4WD high range, especially if you are at a complete stand-still or under full throttle.
Try engaging 4WD High while slowly rolling at idle - no throttle. It should pull in fairly smoothly.
Once 4WD is engaged it will literally LOCK the front and rear axles together. So do not do it on hard dry pavement.
These older style 4WD systems need a little "give" especially when turning. The engineers assume you are not engaging 4WD unless you are in a somewhat slippery scenario.
Many CV joints, axles, U-Joints, differentials, and transfer cases are damaged and broken by folks who don't understand this.
Reading the owners manual should provide a clearer description of what you've got.
Bear in mind that when you come out of 4WD it may not completely release, again due to hard pavement binding up the axles. You can try this: backing up 10-25 feet in a straight line, or getting one set of wheels on the shoulder or in some gravel. That should allow it to release the transfer case and go back to everyday 2WD high.
I hope this helps.
:)

2000 F350 Super Duty Will not go into 4 wheel drive


I have recently had this problem with a customer. It seems the 4x4 low will only engage in neutral with the brake applied. And also check fuse. Then select drive and you will feel it lock in. Don't "goose" the fuel when attempting this.
