is it push button or manual shift?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Push button. I don’t have any power getting to the transfer case connector or at least one of the connectors. I Circuit tested the two prong connector that looks like it is on the 4wd motor or actuator and no current in any of the 4wd switch positions

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
