I am the guy you helped with the steering rack replacement…

Hi. I am the guy...
Hi. I am the guy you helped with the steering rack replacement on the 98 honda passport. My new question is that since I replaced the steering rack, the 4wd light has been flashing, and it won't go into 4wd. The hi/lo shifter seems to work, and when I push the 4wd button, the light goes solid on. It sounds like the switch or relay is working electrically. I think I must have broken something, knocked something loose when i was trying to get the rack out. I'm just not sure what I should be looking for. Can you point me in a direction? Or have any diagrams of the 4wd system. I have also replaced the passenger side cv half shaft and ball joints, but the 4wd light was flashing before I started that repair. Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
