I was out working on it today, It is 16 deg in ny. We took the actuator off again. We tried it while it was hanging from the wire harness. 4H popped the actuator out. Put in 2H and the actuator popped in. It seems to work fine. I even put pressure on it and put it in 4H and it pushed my hand. When we activate the actuator it sounds almost motorized.
My point is. The actuator appears to work fine. Question: Can an actuator be old and not strong enough to apply enough pressure to lock the axles in?
While working on it today (In the snow).I checked all wire connections in and around actuator and transfer case and they all seemed fine(No corrosion)
I checked if transfer case worked by putting in 4H and the front driveshaft did in fact turn!
So. In closing. My problem seems to be. Still. Front axles not locking in 4H and front axle light on floor board shifter still does not light up when in 4H.
I am at the end of my rope with this thing. Surely someone can help me figure it out. Thanks for your time
