Well, I have a 985.4L I am also Currently working in the Feild of Automotive and taking classes for SMOG @ Wyotech. I've also had the same problem. The First Thing I did was disconect and reconect the bat, then tried and worked. That told me something was wrong with the electrical and not mechanical. So I waited till it happened again and when it did, I uplugged the connector (power supply) to the transfer case to check if there was debri in between, there was. Blew it clean made sure that the (green)rubber square gasket was placed properly between the connectors. Tried and it worked, then it happen again. So I finally took out the DMM (multimeter) and checked The Switch in the dash, Fusses and the solinoid )on the Transfer case. ALL THAT AND IT WAS THE SWITCH. If it is your switch ....To get to the dash just simply pull over the cover area (radio) with your finger tips (snaps on and off so just pull firm) two little bolts and HELLO THERE MR 4x4. Happy TRUCKIN.
RTMANLAPAS@AOL>COMNoteThe 4x4 rotary switches, common to and vehicles, has had an issue for awhile where it would either get dirty and not run properly, or the rotating Tri-prong contact would get bent slightly from use so that there is a poor connection. Simply remove the switch like he said, but instead of replacing it, take it apart and clean it with some electrical contact cleaner or equivilent. Make sure the Moving contact is touching the mini circuit board well enough, and reassemble. The way the swith works is off the amount of resistance in the 4x4 logic circuit. The middle two connectors are for the 4x4, while the outer 2 are just for the little dash light above it. Each position of the switch has a different sized resistor, so when you move the switch, each setting has a different resistance it sends to the 4x4 module or GEM (Depending on the year of your vehicle.) So, if the switch is ok, perhaps it isn't getting enough voltage or the control module is bad. For my problem on my B4000, I'm going with the 4x4 module, all the rest seems to have checked out good. AnswerIt could be on of the fron cv joints, because when one goes out the other one will not work as powerful or probably not at all they both need power in order to work.
spray WD40 in the door latch mechanism, it will sometimes get stuck and the lubricant will free it up to engage when the door is closed.
If the tail lights on a Ford Expedition are inoperative, it is likely there is an electrical issue. If all the tail lights are not working, it is likely a blown fuse.
which fuse controls the lift gate or interior lights on a 2003 ford expedition
if you pull up ever so slightly on the e-brake the lights wil go out. carefull not to engage the brake while moving. but just lifting it a little will engage a sensor that turns out the lights.
Not in my 1998 Ford Expedition XLT. I seen them on the once that where built in CANADA.
Pull the headlight switch out toward you. Fog lights will only engage when headlights (not just daytime running lights) are engaged.
Check engine light is out
Vehicle is in need of service...
I believe you pull the selector knob ( park lights , headlights etc ) towards you
I believe you turn on your low beam headlights and then pull out on the selector switch to turn on the fog lights and then push it in to shut the fog lights off
could be the alternator is about to go out
Try chamging the bulb, and if that doesnt solve your problem, check all the wiring.
Put on or engage your emergency break.
Remove the tail light housing and replace the bulbs.
pull the head light switch out bentley
Should be on the parking/tailight circuit
The license plate lights are not in a separate fuce by it seft. They are the same as your side marker lights. So, check if your side marker lights are working and if they are them is a bad license plate light bulb.
engage the parking brake , or shut the engine off
On a 2002 Ford Expedition : Turn your low beam headlights on and then pull the headlight switch out towards you to turn on the fog lights
If you want to turn off the running lights off try to engage the emergency brakes. I have a 2000 Montana and that works.
Open rear door hatch. There on top of the rear tail lights you will see two or three screws. Remove those screws and gently remove the tail lights. When your done with the tails lights reinstall.
oil;lights are nicknamed idiot lights they only come on after the damager is done an idiot doesnot check oil reularly therefore the lights are not reliable at all
The switch should be where your light are. You just pull out on the light switch but the fog lights will not come on unless all lights are on.
The main dome light control switch is turned off.
