2001 Ford ranger will not go in 4L

Asked by Aug 16, 2013 at 09:15 AM about the 2001 Ford Ranger 4 Dr XLT 4WD Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2001 Ford Ranger 4x4, when I put it in 4H it goes in. When I switch over to 4L it does nothing. I put a new selector switch in it and it still does the same thing. At one time it would go in both 4H and 4L, then i had to click it in 4L a few times before it would go in. Now it won't go in 4L, is this a relay problem or something else??

You replaced the switch on the dash board (?), but did you check operation of the switch on the transfer case ? Also verify vacuum and electrical signals to all switches inside and under truck. Don't forget to check fuses and read codes.
