Hey how are you ,I will Try to Help you with This Issue

the most common cause is the transfer case actuator , we have several types of 4wd system , awd , 4wd , manual, auto shift ,

what is the vin# ***** i pull up the correct one

have you checked fluid ?

any leaks from case and oil going inside the connector , you need to check ?

any noise from case when engaged ?

If you do not mind me asking are you looking for the most possible causes and taking it to a repair shop or you are repairing it yourself and you need step by step instructions
Please Let Me Know
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 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
