2000 Ford Explorer 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 179, 00 miles

Hello! I have a 2000 Ford Explorer and the four wheel drive I believe is stuck on. It wont switch to auto and it flashes 4x4 on high and low on dash. Whats this mean? Also would that make the car suck gas, and vibrate on bottom of car? Thanks

Hi: It sounds like it's in 4wd. Yes it would cause more gas use and could cause a vibration. It sound like the actuator is bad. It's on the transfer case. Unplug it and see if you get power to wiring. If you do, replace the actuator.

NOTE: Using 4wd on a dry surface will cause damage to the system.
