4wd won't engage

7 posts in this topic

Trying to help my friend out, he has a 94 ford explorer and the 4wd will not engage when pushing the 4wd button, the light does not come on either. The truck makes a clicking noise when trying to engage the 4wd. Any ideas guys?

Very comon for having shift motors stick. As airjer said tap on the motor with a hammer and have someone pushing the button and see if it shifts.

I heard theres a magnet in there so make sure the tap is just that n not a good rap. and if that dont work what should I try next?

A two handed grip and a running start is not required. Just tap it! If that doesn't do it than there are a bunch of check this wire check that wire stuff. The motor is the usual culprit.
