will the transfer case go into low?
or,,does the switch lights just flash and does nothing?
hear it clunk but lights still just flash
but..does it go into low?
it is stuck in high?
you can hear the incoder motor run
but,,we know it isnt shifting the case
if so..it should go to low even if the front dont pull
used transfer case but fluid was green and transfer case worked in outer truck
what is it stuck in
you can feel it go in low
but is it in low?
thats what it seems.
yif it is in low,,the truck will have allot of power and shift through the gears quickl
and wont even go 50mph
i know I will go try it right now
let me know if it gos into low
then,,let me know if it will go into high
i would think it is stuck in one of those
it goes into low. but then the trans shifts had and slow 5000 rpm
so..you are saying it will shift to low....
and into high also?
seems to go in to high also but light still flashes and no front wheel spin
light only stays on in 2 high
you are certain that it is going into high and low
i dont think it is from what you are saying
I was an auto mechanic (certified) but dont do it anymore
so ..you are certain..right
did you ninstall a new encoder.,,or used?
used the one that was with the transfercase
i think the encoder isnt working
but,,you say it is...
did you install the encoder with it in 2hi?
I know it is going in low. but cant tell on high because light just flashes on 4 high. light stay on in 2 high
when you drive it in high
you should be able to tell if it really is in high
i tried 2 incoder motors on the old transfer case
you should be able to cruise at 70mph with no problem if it is in high
yes it shifts to high but still only rear wheels pulling.can go 120 in high
now,,lets get this straight
it is also shifting to low
dont think i could do that in low. ha! ha!
so,,we are sure it also gos to low..also,,right
yes cant go very fast, has lots of engine rpm
now,,,i need to know....does the front drive shaft turn in 4low?
can see under the truck when I'm testing it in low
yes..you will need a helper
can i put it in and crawl under and try toi turn the drive shaft
it would also be nice if the front of the truck was off the ground
because if the front locks in you cant turn it either
we are trying to determine if your problem is in the front or the case
ok drive shaft willnot turn in 4 low or 4 high. will turn in 2 hi
have left tire of ground could still turn it
are you there
you could turn the drive shat with it in 4low?
nor in 4high
but can in 2 high
if the case is going into low and into high
but,,it isnt locking the front shat with it
the case is no good
the chain may be broken in it
\the transfer case
yes the drive shaft doesn't turn when in 4low or 4high. but does in 2high
sorry..i miss understood
you problem is in the front actuator
on the differencial
you may have a bad wire from the engine install
i am going to find you a wire diagram
if i pull it off how can i see if it is in the diff or the
but...you will need to give me a moment
we know its the front
sense the case locks the drive shaft
so,,your problme is to the front
please stand by
still working on it
what engine do you have?
and..here is the front actuator
the problem is in the front
i hope this has helped you
ok is there anything that could stick in the front diff
other than the actuator
so it has to be a bad actuator
or wire right
it could be the wiring to the actuator
thats why i gave you the diagrams
ok will check it out in the morning
so you can hunt it down
you are very welcome
have a good night
