Why does front drive shaft stay engaged in 2 wheel drive?

Asked by May 08, 2017 at 12:21 PM about the 1992 Ford Bronco Eddie Bauer 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I changed transfer case shift motor and rebuilt transfer case. All switches
work...4wd high and 4wd low seem to engage and disengage. I'm really
stumped. Im thinking maybe the electro magnet in the t-case may be shot.

Check the hubs, it is likely that they are not disengaging so your turning everything up front even though the transfercase has disengaged the front driveline.

Thanks, but the hubs and everything are working as they should be.

If that's the case then you have an internal transfer case problem, possibly a shift slider fork damage, does the transfer case make any noise like a slight clatter sound?

No noises...everything engages properly. The problem is disengagement. Really puzzled.

Have you checked to see if the front driveline is under power from the transfercase? If it is then remove the shift motor and see if it is actually out of 4WD HI. If it isn't then you have a problem either with the ring and pinion or spider gears in the front pumpkin or you have stuck hubs.
