I have an 01 Sport Trac 4.0 V6, 4X4. When I flip the switch to go into 4WD, nothing happens. No noise, no clicks, no lights on dash, and ultimately no 4 wheel drive.
Given that the absolutely nothing is happening, my gut feeling is that it is the Transfer Case actuator that is behind the dash. Before I go out and start buying parts, has anyone else had a similar problem? If so, how dificult is it to swap the actuator?
The truck has 200K miles on it, I got it with 40K 6 years ago, I haven't had need for the 4 wheel drive in the past 4 years (120K est.) Which as me thinking this is more an electrical issue than it is a transfer case issue.
Any suggestions you have on this problem would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks ncranchero... I finally had some good weather on the weekend to pull the panel and take a look. After playing with the connections I got the 4WD High to engage. This morning was a bit rainy, so I figured I'd give the 4WD a workout and use it on the way to work. It worked fine until I got to the office. Once I hit the parking lot, I dropped into 2WD for easier parking. After that it would not go back into 4WD. I pulled the panel, checked the connections, but nothing would happen, back to like the original problem.
There are a couple of connectors behind that kick panel and I have confirmed they are all secure. Anywhere else I should be looking?
