Do you get any warning lights on the dash when the car goes into 4wd?

Okay great, that will be helpful in diagnosing this. Do you have a local parts store you can go to and have the trouble codes scanned? I think we are having a switch issue, but knowing the codes would help alot

what switch
Transmission Mechanic: Gabriel Grey, Auto Service Technician replied 7 months ago

The VTM 4 wheel system has a built in switch on the module. When the module develops issues it can cause problems with the 4wd switch. One other thing that can falsely trigger the system is a bad ABS/wheel speed sensor, but usually that will throw a code and set a light for the ABS

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
brake problem indicator is on
Transmission Mechanic: Gabriel Grey, Auto Service Technician replied 7 months ago

Okay then there can be a few issues here. I would suggest getting the codes scanned so we can diagnose this further. there is not too much we can do without knowing what codes are stored
