My 96 rodeo front wheels will not lock in when I put it in 4 wheel high or low.I can here the gears turning in the transfer case but the two front wheels wont lock in together. The light won't come on showing its in 4 wheel drive.[img]smileys/smiley7.gif[/img]


Is this caused by the electric shift on the fly actuator. What is this thing and what does it look like?


Better yet where is it and how do I fix it?Edited by: greentea

Easiest way to found out is take it to your favorite repair shop an have them check it out.

electric shift on a 96'? Just curious. I never knew it was an option on the earlier year rodeos.I always opted for a manual shift on my vehicles because of this problem.

The gen 1.5 ('96-97) have kind of the same set up as the 2nd gen ('98-up). Except you move the shift lever instead of push a button. On gen 1.5 when you shift into 4wd the 4x4 computer checks that its locked in then sends a signal to the front axle actuator to lock in. Your '97 isnt a fully shifted 4wd.
