Hi guys, I’ve been doing LOTS of research and am stumped. There’s a long story and a short story. Let’s start with the short version:
I opened the cup holder, found the right connector near the center console, unplugged it, and do NOT have 4lo, 4hi, or rear locker ability. All the 4x4 lights just blink and it does NOT go into 4x4. I drove around a field from 0-10mph weaving around hoping they would engage but nothing. Rear tire spins easy when I throttle.
Long version: I already had my ABS, VDC, and SLIP lights on because my 4x4 has not worked since I got the truck. There was a broken rear abs wire (looks like it rubbed on the frame) on the harness side (not the plug side) and I soldered that up after unplugging the abs wire. Plugged it back in and didn’t fix the problem. That’s the backstory. I was hoping this would be an easy 4x4 fix until I can get time and/or money to fix the root problem. Any help would be appreciated thanks!
