My 1999 Chevy Blazer has 4-wheel drive problems. The problem begins when I start the blazer. Sometimes when it starts, the indicator lights on the shift buttons work fine and 4-wheel drive will shift without a problem. Lately, when I start the blazer one of two things will happen. 1.) the buttons for the 4-wheel drive do not light up or function at all. When this happens the "service 4-wheel drive" light appears. or 2.) the buttons light fine and the 4-wheel drive seems to work. Since it works s

08 f150 4x4 on front end only one side is disengaging when in 2 wheel drive. The problem is when engaged into 4x4 wheel drive the front drive line spins and both sides engage but only the back wheels spin and when disengaged only the right side disengages. It doesn't make sense when front is engaged in 4x4 wheel drive and the front drive shaft spins and it only acts like it is in 2 wheel drive. What do you feel is the problem?
If I read this correctly ( which I might not have, bit early for me ), the front drive shaft will engage ( from the transfer case ) but the front wheels are not engaged ?If so, sounds like either the vacuum from the IWE ( Integrated Wheel ... 2004 Ford F150
My 2008 Ford Super Duty Diesel Crew Cab long bed 4 wheel drive switch will not work sometimes up to 10 attempts going from 2 wheel drive to 4 wheel drive and then back to 2 wheel drive from 4wd. At times the vehicle will not go back to 2 wheel drive for extended periods of time. I have taken it to the dealer and they too have experienced the same problem as mentioned above but do not know what is wrong and say they are unable to fix the problem. The vehicle has 24,000 miles and is under warrant

I am having several problems with my 93 Grand Cherokee Laredo 4 wheel all the time. First, every time I drive, it seems like it slips out of 4 wheel drive high into neutral, then we have to come to a stop put the regular shifter into neutral then put the gear for all wheel drive back into gear. Do we need a new transfer case? second problem we are having: my computerized panel that tells you when something needs filled, only comes on sometime and when it does stay on it lights up a section near
On your first problem, I would say the transfer case is gonna need some work if not totally rebuilt. You may try checking the fluid in the transfer case to start with. If it is low, the transfer case could be overheating and causing it to jump out ... 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I have just bought a 1997 Mitsubishi Pajero. It is in a very good condition. I have only identified one problem: At the dashboard there are an indicator of 4 wheels that lights up depending on whether you drive 2 or 4 wheels. When I drive 2H the back wheels are with lights but some times to front wheel starts blinking. I assume this indicates a problem, but as I do not have a manual I do not understand what it is? Can you help me please? Best regards Michael Kristensen, Maputo

When selecting 4 wheel drive my locking wheel hubs dont seem to be locking.I have drive to the wheels as the drive shafts can be seen turning when the vehicle is raised off the ground.Are the automatic wheel locking hubs prone to any common problems do you know?.The vehicle is a nissan 2.7 terrano,M reg.Many thanks Peter.
The auto locking hubs are sort of a weak link. Many replace them with manual locking hubs, which last basically forever. Here is a set of instructions:http://npora.ipbhost.com/index.php?showtopic=1405 ... 1994 Nissan Pathfinder

My auto hubs will not lock into 4 wheel drive. Hubs work as I tried them on my sidekick and they worked fine. Does the x90 have a vacume lock system? If not what could be the problem, The transfer case seems to go into each gear as 4 low will make it go slower though in two wheel drive. Got under and turned axles and they seem Ok. I am not a mechanic, but sidekick auto hubs never gave any problems. Thanks AL

1. when driving the steering wheel keeps on shaking as the car moves and at first i thought it was the wheel alignment but i have sorted that out and the problem still persists. 2.when driving not on a smooth road i can feel the effects as if i am on a wheel barrow, could this be a signal that the shock absorbers needs replacement and which brand do you recommend? can they give me the comfort that you experince when driving expensive cars where you can not even feel a bumper on da road?
1. Shaking steering wheel... typically a sign that your wheels are out of balance. If not properly weighted during a highspeed balance adjustment, they will wobble during high speed driving. Get a proper alignment and highspeed balance job. \012 ... 2006 Ford Laser
