I need a diagram or something that shows me where all the lines go and where they connect at. there is a line that runs from the acuator up to the solenoid in the middle of the line it goes into some type of relay or something but there are three ports and only two wires. I know this isn't technicle termenology but i would appreciate any help you could give me

SOURCE: hooking up wires to battery, solenoid, altornater and starter

hi from the uk if you look at startermotor solenoid you will see two large threaded terminals with nuts? and a third small terminal either spade or round terminal ok? now you should see thet one of large terminals already has a metal or braides strap secured to it and the actual startermotor body? LEAVE THIS ALONE the other large terminal is the one you fit the positive+ lead to from battery also there should be another lead to also attach to same terminal this one supplies power for vehicles electrics etc ensure you secure these with nut ok? now the third small spade or post terminal you will hav a thin wire nearby ?this attaches to thisterminal on its own on solenoid this wire is the one that activates starter when ignition is turned to key start position ok? as for interior light not working ? try again when you complete the above also make sure bulb is ok? ps! before you reconnect starter wires ensure the earth/ground lead is disconnected from battery and when reconnecting battery connect positive lead first then the earth lead or if you try other way you will have sparking from pos lead as you try connecting to battery hope this info is clear instructios for you to follow and wish you luck best wishes from england

SOURCE: need vacuum diagram for 4-wheel drive

the 4x4 don't use vacuum. the front is auto lock when the transfer is engauged with the button. if the light don't which when pressed into 4hi or 4low. the motor on the transfer case maybe hung up. they have to be used at least 4 times a year not to go bad. the motor is on the back side of the transfer case. best of luck.

replace the 4 wheel drive acuator if in 4wd with selector and the wheels are still free then the acuator is bad even tho you 12v the acuator may not be pulling back to lock in the hub for 4 wd. simply replace it as their is a small spring on the acuater that over time becomes week and can no longer hold the presure that is created when it activated.

On a 1997 ford expedition, how do you change from 2wd to 4wd?


If you can't find the 4 X 4 switch, then your expedition is probably All Wheel Drive and it will not have an on or off. If it is "all wheel drive" it is like it is in four wheel drive all the time and will kick in when it feels a wheel slip. Check your owner's manual and you will probably find that it is all wheel drive. Hope this helps.

Where would I find the fuel filter for a 2003 Ford Expedition? Can you show me a diagram?


I don't have a diagram, but the filter is on the driver side in front of the rear wheel. In between the gas tank and the frame you will see a black plastic cover about 12 inches long. Pop off the cover and you will see the filter. Very simple to change, just push on the blue clips and pull the lines off, be prepared for some fuel.

I HAVE A 97 FORD EXPEDITION THAT STUCK IN 4 WHEEL DRIVE


Possible solution..Expedition uses a vacuum solenoid on the firewall that controls vacuum to the 4-wheel drive actuator. Vacuum "unlocks" the 4-wheel drive, so you may have a leak in the line to the actuator so the 4-wheel drive is always on. Seems backwards, I know.

4 wheel drive wont engage to front end drive shaft is turning and actuator is moving


acuator at transfer case or at frt diff if acuator is moving then axles to wheels should be turning and you may have a hub locking problem. if axles to wheels dont turn then the acuator tofront diff is no good not strong enough or bent shaft on acuator, some of these use a small shaft in front of actuator also make sure if this truck use this shaft check it for wear, lift truck remove actuator push inside arm in see if wheels spin turn frt shaft while holding arm in wheel should turn is they do, replace actuator, if they dont turn then diff problem,

88 Jeep Cherokee 4 Wheel Drive Problem


It sounds like the vacuum acuater is cracked or broken internaly. Recomend replacing the acuater and replacing all vacuum hoses at the same time. There is also a small relay switch under the hood under the radiator tank that may also require replacing.
