Have you noticed the ABS light as well? or is it flashing too? or is it just the 4wd light? thank you.

Just the 4wd light
Ford Mechanic: Edward, ASE Certified Technician replied 5 months ago

Alright, it's got a code stored in the control module. Does it blink all the time, or does it blink like 5 or 6 times every few minutes? Have you pulled the negative battery terminal yet to see if that cleared the codes?

I have scanned the car. Don’t get any codes
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
It stays on. Not blinking
Ford Mechanic: Edward, ASE Certified Technician replied 5 months ago

Alright, If it has no codes, It would be difficult for me to determine what is going on from here. Let me opt out in case another expert has seen this exact problem. Thank you!

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.

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
