Customer Question
I have a 2004...

I have a 2004 F250 diesel truck that will not come out of 4wheel drive

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the engine? And when was it last serviced?

Original engine serviced 3 months ago

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

So far we gave tried nothing more than flipping the knob from 4wheel to 2 wheel

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

After looking it up online we thought the fuse might be had but we need a schematic of the fuse box

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka-Moose).

  • THE TIME I AM ONLINE, 7 days a week normally online around midday and then late evening until early morning.
  • PHONE CALLS are automatically offered by the website normally after my first reply. I complete calls where I feel it is a benefit.
  • UPLOADED LINKS I SEND, if I upload dropbox links, they will open on a home PC, often they fail on a work PC, on a phone use the box on the top right of your phone screen for direct download.

Is it stuck in high or low?

Can you remove the shift motor and manually turn the shaft in the transfer case to 2wd?

Have the diag steps, forewarning they are not easy and long but can share them if wanted?

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.
