93' ranger 4x4!!!!!!!!!!!

my girl friend has a 93 ranger xlt with the shift on the fly. about 9 of 10 times when you push the button it wont shift in to 4x4, there is this clicking noise from the back seat area and the 4low will not shift on. so what gives?

cool Re: 93' ranger 4x4!!!!!!!!!!!

It's the solenoid that controls the transfer case. Common problem. Also if it has the auto hubs, they're junk because the innards are plastic and they strip, so do her a favor and replace them with Warn manual hubs.

Re: 93' ranger 4x4!!!!!!!!!!!

it has some warn hub, but they seem really cheap, like mybe stock ones. is the solenoid very hard to replace? and today when I drove it the 4x4 light didnt come on at all. it seemed like it was in 4x4, well I know it was on because I drive up on the crub, with pure ice under the rear tires.

The solenoid is not hard to replace, assuming that's really the problem, remember I'm diagnosing this from afar.

If the hubs are bad you will hear a noise that sounds like plastic cracking because, uh, it's plastic cracking, but if her truck has the factory manual hubs they're not too bad. It's the automatic hubs that break easily. Genuine Warn hubs are better and a little more waterproof as well.
