If the automatic 4x4 works but the front hubs do not engage in a 1994 Ranger, there is no 4 wheel drive. The transaxle for the 4 wheel drive has to be repaired.
Check your fluid level, it's critical. Make sure the fluid's a nice red colour and not brown and smells burnt.
check and make sure it contacts, theres not much room behind that button and any play may cause it not to connect, push the dash assembly around the button firmly with one hand and push the button with the other, does it light up and engage
why wont the light come on the 4x4 drive
push the four wheel drive button on your dash, see owners manual
Try contacting The Ranger Station people they should be able to help. Hope This Helps.
check the wires to the transfer case, what year/model
there should be a button on your left of the steering wheel and if not, it doesn't have 4 wheel drive
It may have the original transfer case that was recalled
Hello, I too have a 1998 Ford Ranger that the 4 wheel drive does not engage. I have been doing some research online and have found one main reason for this. Since our Fords are shift on the fly 4 wheel drive the hubs automatically engage for us when we switch that little nob. Well after 100,000 miles of doing this the automatic hubs wear down and the 4 wheel drive is unable to engage. I have done some research and those automatic hubs are about $200 each. But you can get the manual locking ones for about $75 each. If you get the $75 ones you will have to manually lock your hubs when using 4 wheel drive, but they will not wear out like the automatic ones do and they are cheaper.
It depends. Llook at the hubs on your front wheels. Is there a knob in the center of the wheels? If so, then turn this knob to the right and you will have engaged the 4 wheel drive. If you do this; however, make sure you engage the 4 wheel drive inside the truck (if your truck has a 4 wheel drive gear shifter). On other Rangers, you have a knob on the inside of the cab. It should be somewhere on the dash. You can turn it to the right and this will engage the 4 wheel drive. Finally, when you engage the 4WD make sure the engine is cut off, so it doesn't mess up your transfer case.
Check the fuse.
The Ranger has remote free-wheeling hubs to disconnect the front wheels from the front axle when 4wd is disengaged, reducing rolling resistance and hence tyre wear and fuel consumption. When you engage 4wd initially (when stationary) the free wheeling hubs engage automatically. Once these are engaged it is possible to shift between 2H and 4H and back when moving (e.g. when going between solid road and snow, since without a centre differential you can't safely drive the Ranger on-road in 4x4). This is why the free-wheeling hubs do not disengage automatically. To disengage them you press the RFW switch. This is the only time this switch does anything. If you drive > 60mph the RFW light will flash to remind you to press the button to disengage the free wheeling hubs.
i was told after changing th e battery , had to drive for at least 50 miles.
You may need to check your transfer case
Check for vacuum leaks,
check vaccum lines on differential or by shift linkage
It could be the shift motor on the T Case. Or it could be the automatic shift button switch on the dash.
Check the engine RPM. If the engine is running too fast when you put it into drive, it will cause the vehicle to jump.
How do you engage four wheel drive on 1995 Chevy S-10?How do you engage four wheel drive on 1995 Chevy S-10?
By clicking on the "computer" button on your start list, then find the name of your flash drive, then click on it.
The 4 wheel drive system on a 2002 Land Rover Discovery is engaged by pressing the 4 wheel drive button on the dash. It sends an electrical signal which activates the system.
