ALWAYS tow a front wheel drive car ON THE BACK WHEELS! If you can't, use a flatbed. Your transmission doesn't circulate fluid when the engine's not running. You likely just seized the planetary gears.

How do you engage the 4wd on a 1998 Ford Ranger with turn switch?

Try to engage while in neutral.or another way I've heard is to reverse a few feet and then stop and put in to 4 wheel dr.AnswerIf when you engage it the 4wd light comes on but you are still in 2wd it might be that your hubs aren't locked. Rangers either have auto or manual locking hubs. If they are manual locking you will see something you can turn in the middle of the front wheels. When you turn them to the locked position your axels are engaged to the wheels and will spin together. When they aren't locked your front axel isn't enganed to the front wheels. Don't drive normally with them locked. Only lock them when you need 4wd.

Rolling wheels have more traction than sliding wheels. Thus you have more control. To illustrate; If you were in a turn and either locked the brakes or accelerated too fast the rear wheels loose traction and the rear of the car starts to pass the front of the car.

Why would the 4 wheel drive not engage on a 1996 Dodge Ram 1500?

Check to see that the wheels are locked don't bother to see if the wheels are locked your truck does not have manual locking hubs. it is an automatic system which uses a vaccuum to engage the front axle. if you look at the back side of the axle you will see a few wires going to the right side. if this system is not engaging the front axle then you will not have four wheel drive as long as you have an open differential in the front. if you have a locker or a limited slip in the front then you should still have 3 wheel drive with the drivers side front being the only one turning. if this isn't the case then your transfer case is probably the culprit.
