4x4 not working
my electronic 4 wheel drive just wont engage. When I flip the switch nothin happens. No light, no noise from engaging. On my way to work i'd try it again when i was at lower speeds and still nothin. After almost an hour of driving and 55 miles later I try it again and it finally engages and light comes on. Then on the way home I tried it agau=in and it still would.t kick in until I was almost home. It did that for a lil over a week and now that its gotten colder, it doesn't engage at all and I really need it becuase one canyon I drive through gets really nasty and sometimes they only let 4x4 through. I talked to a mechanic friend at ford and he said the motor that engages the 4x4 tends to rust up or get filled with dirty if you dont turn it on everyonce in awhile. He said its like $300 to for parts and labor to replace. I was wondering if any one has heard of this same problem and has any solutions before I waste $300 or so.
