1 Answer


Find a level spot, block the wheels, put the transmission in nuetral, turn on the key and while someone is pushing the 2WD button lightly tap on the transfer case shift motor, these tend to have problems as they age, if it shifts back into 2WD then you know that it needs a new shift motor, if it does not shift then you need to run a circuit test on the 4X4 shift control module to make sure it is sending the correct power and reading the sensor return signals. If you can't wait for parts you can remove the shift motor assembly and manually shift the transfer case into 2WD and then cover the access with some duck tape until your part arrive or you have more time to run the circuit tests.
