Tires and Wheels problem
2002 Ford Explorer 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 117000 miles

I cannot get the 4wd on my explorer to engage. I press the buttons and nothing happens. No lights come on, nothing. I know that the lights on the dash are working because when the car is in acc, the 4x4 low light pops on for a few seconds. I've read the owners manual, and had a friend check the corresponding fuses, and found nothing wrong. I'm in the middle of a blizzard and I could really use my 4wd. Any suggestions?

Do you
have the same problem?

Where you need to start is at the transfercase. Threre is an electric actuator that shifts for transfer case from 2 to 4wd when you push the button. You need to see if that is getting power. Check that and let me know what you find.
