Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Stuck in four-wheel-drive

1 Answer


Most common is the transfer case actuator motor, sometimes if you tap on it while someone is pushing the 2WD button it will run just enough to get you back to where you need to be, then you can order a new motor assembly and still drive your rig. If you can't get it too run you can take it off, manually put it in 2WD and duck tape the opening, unplug the motor assembly and order a new one, just make sure you follow the directions exactly or you could ruin the new motor assembly. Note: all of the above must be done on level ground, wheels blocked and the transmission in nuetral. HTH
