Hello, my name is ***** ***** to help you with this.

The most common problem on the push button 4x4 is the switch itself. I would try replacing the switch first as it is fairly inexpensive and easy to put in.

Please reply to this if you need more help. If you are satisfied with my service, please rate 3 or more starts at the top of the screen. Rating does not close out your question. Remember, sometimes it is difficult to completely diagnose your vehicle without being there, but I will try to give you the best answer I can. If I am not giving you 5 star service, please let me know what I missed.

Thanks Dan

I currently at work with it stuck in 4wd and a 30+ mile drive home. Is there any way to temporarily get it out of 4wd until I can get a new switch or whatever it might need?
Expert:  Dan replied 12 months ago.

If it is in 4wd hi, it will be fine to drive home. There is no way to manually get it out of 4wd everything is electronic.
