Stuck in 4wd
I have a 2003 dodge dakota that is stuck in 4wd. It
switches out of 4lo to 4hi without a problem but
when I switch it to 2wd the indication light
indicates its in 2wd but it's actually in 4 4hi. It was
suggested to get a new actuator (TCASE MOTOR)
but I'm still having the same issue. Any ideas?
Are you driving the truck on dry pavement in 4WD? If so DON'T! Try moving the truck back and forth a little in a straight line and then stop and attempt to shift again. It may take several tries.
I have been trying that for days. Any chance it could just be a bad switch? The indication light stays on 4lo when I'm in 4lo, when I switch to 4hi you can hear it switch into 4hi but the indication light blinks on 4wd but then goes back to 4lo (although it's actually in 4wd 4hi) when I go from 4lo to 2wd the light stays on 2wd but it's actually in 4wd hi.
Makes no sense to me
