Sounds like the electrical actuator is bad on the front axle.

Which 4X4 system does yours have ?
Four-Wheel Drive Systems The mechanical-shift 4-wheel drive system consists of the following components:
  • Transfer case (For transfer case repair procedures, refer to Section 308-07B ).
  • Transfer case shift lever
  • Manual locking hubs
  • 4x4 indicators
  • Shift linkage (hub locks)
The electronic-shift, 4-wheel drive system consists of the following components:
  • Transfer case (For transfer case repair procedures, refer to Section 308-07B ).
  • Four-wheel drive (4WD) control module (For 4WD control module installation, refer to 4WD control module in this section.)
  • Mode select switch (MSS)
  • Gearmotor encoder assembly
  • Automatic locking hubs (hub locks)
  • Pulse vacuum hub lock (PVH) solenoid and vacuum lines

1992 Land cruiser will not shift into drive


Does it have manual locking front hubs? Some people fit these to full time four wheel drive vehicles to reduce driveline effort and increase fuel efficiency. The issue is that the drive from the transfer case will find the path of least resistance which if the front hubs are not locked power will be sent through the front diff and only spin the front drive shafts. To ensure drive power is sent to the rear diff the centre diff needs to be locked. If you do have manual locking front hubs try putting them in the locked position and leave the centre diff button off and try going for a drive.

Four wheel drive does not work


does the truck have manual lockout hubs on it? if they arent locked in the 4wd wont work..usually the truck needs to roll some distance in neutral transmission gear for the transfer case to engage..and rolling slowly just above walking speed..

Transfer case on 2006 F150 will engage but no power to front wheels?


SOUNDS LIKE A BAD HUB TRY THIS TO DIAGNOSE THE PROBLEM

Put the transmission in park, set the parking brake and raise the chassis so one of the front wheels is off the ground while the other is still on the ground. When the transfer case is in two-wheel drive, the hubs should be released allowing the wheels to turn freely when spun by hand. If the axle shaft turns when you spin the wheel, it means the hub has not disengaged.
To check engagement, rotate the axle shaft backwards. This should lock the hub. Try turning the wheel by hand again. The axle shaft should now turn with the wheel if the hub is locked. If the hub fails to lock, the hub will have to be disassembled and inspected or replaced.
To check release, hold the axle shaft steady and rotate the wheel backwards. You should hear a click as the locking mechanism slides back out and disengages the hub. Rotate the wheel forward again and it should turn freely.
Another way to check the hubs is to raise the vehicle on a frame contact lift so all four wheels are off the ground. Then start the engine and place the transfer case in four-wheel drive and the transmission in drive. If the front wheels don't turn, look at the front axle shafts. If both shafts are turning, but one wheel is not, the problem is a bad hub on the wheel that isn't turning. If the front driveshafts are not turning when the transfer case is in four-wheel drive, the problem is inside the differential (broken side gears) or the transfer case (broken chain, shift linkage, etc.). If the driveshaft between the transfer case and differential is turning, the problem is in the differential. If the driveshaft is not turning, the vehicle is going to need repairs to the transfer case.
Hope this helps.

Front drive shaft not fully engaged in 4WD, with truck on stands all 4 wheels do rotate but if i stop front wheels the front drive shaft is not engaged


Hi,
Do you have auto locking hubs on the front wheels, or manual locking hubs?
If you have auto locking hubs chances are they are not engaging properly and will need to be removed and spline sets checked for broken teeth on locking hub and locking shaft.
If you have manual locking hubs then check that they are firm when turning to engage them in the lock position.If they are light when engaging them to the lock position then they my have broken/worn out the locking hub and spline. Also check that the engaging spring inside the hub has enough tension to engage the hubs they may be broken. If the hub are all ok then you have a problem in the transfer box, where the 4WD lever is not meshing the transfer box properly. Hope this helps, let me know how you get on.

How do i use four wheel drive in the snow


Put the transmission shifter in neutral, shift the transfer case into 4 wheel high, for regular road speeds, you need to know if you have manual or automatic locking hubs, if they are manual go to each front tire and turn the switch on the hubs to the lock position, put the transmission shifter in gear and go. Be careful and don't drive like you're invincible. JKust because you have a 4x4 vehicle does not mean you will not loose control.

Four wheel drive lights come on but no four wheel drive


The light comes on indicating that the transfer case is engaged in 4wd, but that doesn't mean the hubs are locked. If you have automatic locking hubs, you should check to make sure they are working correctly. This GM vehicle may be equipped with vacuum locking hubs... meaning there is a vacuum line running from the transfer case selector to the hubs on each side. The vacuum makes the hubs lock into place. If those vacuum lines are damaged or missing, they wont lock. If you have electronic locking hubs, they may need to be replaced. Good luck.
