hi Pete. yes plese.
I have measured 9.85 k Ohms when the 4wd is engaged with the switch unplugged. if I plug in the switch and engage the 4wd, fuse 8 blows and the instrument cluster goes dead. I need to know what the resistance of the switch should be so that I can be sure of the diagnosis and order the part. many thanks
Thanks again. there is no electronic actuator. its a manual 4wd selector but auto transmission. the switch is a two wire switch similar to a reverse light switch and located on the side of the transfer case. think that this is only used to inform the gearbox ecu that the car is in 4wd and to indicate to the driver on the cluster of the same.
I will buy a new switch during the week and measure it to see what it should be. once I know, I will let you know. it may be useful to other site users.
