06 f250 no 4x4 low

Have a f250 5.4 and will go into 4 high but will not go into 4 low, when I turn the switch I can hear it switch into 4 high but when I switch it to 4 low I hear nothing and the low light on the dash doesn't go on.Can really need some help with this as the air here feels like snow soon.

Re: 06 f250 no 4x4 low

Are there any dash lights on (check engine light/service lights)? If so, get them read. Most vehicle computers (PCM) will store any codes for 50-100 restarts so you can try scanning it and see if anything comes up.

Be sure to place the transmission in NEUTRAL before going into 4LO, as it shouldn't engage when in a forward or reverse gear. To put it back into 4HI or 2WD you'll have to go back to NEUTRAL. You can also check the wiring under the vehicle, to make sure that the wires are not broken, cracked, corroded or detached. I know in the newer F series trucks, the wires are fairly exposed to the elements.

Worst case, is you need to get a new TCCM, or transfer case control modele, which is considered to be a maintenance item with the electronically controlled transfer cases (knob, vs manual lever on floor which has no TCCM). I'd phone around local salvage yards for one, as a new unit from the dealer will set you back a good wad of dough. Usually, you'll get an engine code for this, but if not, I'd take it into a qualified shop (not necessarily a dealer) for a proper diagnosis.

Re: 06 f250 no 4x4 low

I own an 08 F250 4x4 FX4 and here's the procedure:

- Stop on even ground;
- Put transmission on neutral;
- Switch to 4 Low;
- Press and release brakes.

Should work, if it doesn't, get your ride check...

Cheers!

Re: 06 f250 no 4x4 low

I looked at both of these part sites which are great but they show no transfer case module only a transfer case motor, I think that the motor probably still works as it will go 4 high but not 4 low

Re: 06 f250 no 4x4 low

If they show the motor, they possibly have the module. Call their number to find out.
