JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: I don't think so.

Sorry, something is acting up with Just Answer and your response just came through.

Most of the time when we see the flashing 4wd light on these trucks it means the transfer case actuator or the front differential actuator is faulty.

Do you plan to fix this yourself?
