FOUR WHEEL DRIVE PROBLEMS

1998 Ford Ranger

Drive Train Axles Bearings problem
1998 Ford Ranger 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 152000 miles

I Have a 1998 Ford ranger 4x4 and both 4x4 high and 4x4 low lights are flashing on and off 5 times each time they flash. This happens as soon as I start the truck and about every 5-10 minuets thereafter. When this started, the fourwheel drive quite workin and. I replaced both front wheel hubs and nothing still. There is no Check engine or Check guage light triggered. Any Idea?

RETRIEVING DIAGNOSTIC TROUBLE CODES

Connect New Generation Star (NGS) scan tester to Data Link Connector (DLC) and perform proper hook-up. See EQUIPMENT HOOK-UP
