Have Transmission Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, are you still having issues with your 4x4 system?
Ok, I have seen this many times.
Has it been a while since you have used the four wheel drive?
Ok. this is common.
The actuator in these vehicle will get stuck from not using them. You can remove it and try to power it up remotely to see if you can free it up, but usually it will need to be replaced. They are an electric actuator and they tend to freeze up if not used regularly.
Yes, you can remove it.
Let me see if I can find instructions.
Actually, I was just looking and I remembered that you can't just remove the actuator without splitting the transfer case.
The forks that are connected to the inside have to unbolted.
If you remove the bolts holding the actuator in it will move out a few inches but not come out of the case.
I would remove the actuator for the front differential and make sure that it is working correctly first.
This system is kind of a nightmare and everything has to be in the perfect place or the computer locks up.
