I have a 2005 Dodge Ram 1500, just recently had both front wheel bearings replaced. With 10" of fresh snow, I thought would be a great opportunity to use my 4WD, engaged 4HI and nothing! Any ideas?

Asked by Mar 06, 2013 at 05:13 PM about the Dodge Ram 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I've owned several Dodge 4x4's over the last 30 yrs. Never once have I had a problem with 4x4. I'm
getting a light grind noise in the front left, I suspect that is where the problem lies, Transfer case
engages, front shaft engages, proper indicator light on dash, but nothing but grind at the front left.

Possibly broken drive axle, or hub. That happened to me. On my Ford
