Second opinion] I have a 01 f250 7.3 and my 4wd stuck I. 4low and now that it's out it does nothing but the switch and relays and motor all check out good

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Has the car been starting normally?

204000 and yes well maintained

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F250 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I've asked shops and looked all over the internet tried everything but still not shifting and no lights to show it working

thanks for clarifying

I suspect the module is to blame, assuming to wiring issue to/from the module, which is unlikely.

Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
