wow got the motor off today.....how easy that was except for the brown wire that goes into the t-case.......i had to cut it off (near the plug ofcourse so i could splice into the new plug)......went to O'Reilly Auto Parts, they said the "Control Trac" (BW4405 t-case) shift motor was a dealer part......shat i bet that dude cost more than $200......

i switched out the selector switch on the dash with no luck in fixing the problem.....checked all the fuses, non blown.......so my last option i guess is that shift motor.....

Trace out the wires and put 12 volts to it. If it runs it's not the problem.

The brown wire is the 4WD clutch I believe. It is in the 4x4, might be something more related to AWD in the ControlTrac.

holy hell! for a Ford t-case shift motor it is going to cost $275 (and that is at a discount from a buddy who is a parts manager!).....for an aftermarket t-case shift motor it is $124..........

the Ford garage said it is more than likely the GEM........how do i go about testing that thing to make sure it isn't it.......for a new Ford GEM it is going to cost $225........

and to replace the GEM (if i get a GEM out of a wrecked Explorer) does it need to be 1 out of a '97 with the Control Trac 4wd or will any 4wd Explorer GEM work?

those speed sensors are known to go bad.

to bad you wern't closer I'd hook my scanner up to it for you and find out the root cause of the problem.

i'll sell the motor for 50 bucks shipped.

That's a good deal. Only cheaper way really would be a JY if they'll let it go separate. If Mark's is a good one, I'd grab it for that price.

Provided that yours is really bad, lol.

Mark, sweeten the deal and find him a speed sensor too, lol...
