4 wheel drive won't engage on 1998 Ford Ranger?

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.

How do you engage the 4 wheel drive on a Ford Ranger?

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.

What is the RFW button for on a Ford Ranger XLT Thunder?

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.
