4 wheel drive not working??
I have a 97 F150 4x4 and found out this past weekend that my 4wd decided not to work at a very bad time... slipped off into a creek and got stuck, 4wd decided to stop working and one back tire ended up off the ground, so I was really in trouble. LOL. Anyways, after getting a John Deere to help out, I'm back at home and wanting to fix the problem.
When I put it in 4wd, the light comes on, the front drive line spins, but the front tires don't spin. It's like the 4wd isn't actually engaging, even though the light says it is. I went to autozone to pick up some stuff anyways and the guy there said it was either the actuator (sp?) or the switch. But he thought if the switch went out, the light wouldn't even come on. So he figured it would be the actuator, not the switch, but I would have to order the actuator from the Ford house, since they didn't carry them. If that is what my problem is, is there anywhere else I could get one for a little cheaper than The House. Figure any after-market store would be cheaper than the Ford house!
Thanks in advance,
