4WD ENGAGEMENT

1998 Ford Expedition

Transmission problem
1998 Ford Expedition V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 85000 miles

The 4wd will not engage with the dashboard switch. The lights on the switch do not come on and there are no noises made. Seems to be stuck in 2wd. I have checked all the fuses and they are good. Anyone have any ideas??? Thanks in advance.

What you need to do is check to see if the 4wd actuator on the transfer case is getting power when you switch to 4wd. If it is, chances are the actuator is bad. If no power is there, then we will need to check wiring to the switch and the switch itself.

Let me know what you find.
