Jake :

Hi there

Jake :

the truck is in 4lo i assume?

Customer:

It was in 4lo but since I've re-wired ABS sensor it is in 4wd

Jake :

you still with me

Jake :

this chat box is giving me fits, sorry

Customer:

yes

Jake :

have you placed the transmission in neutral?

Customer:

It was in 4lo but since I've re-wired ABS sensor it is in 4wd

Customer:

Yes but nothing changed

Jake :

why di you re-wire the ABS sensor?

Customer:

Did diagnostics and came up with fault at rear nearside abs sensor faulty and when checked, the wire had broke. Once repaired the abs light went out and was then able to come out of 4lo for the first time into 4wd but not 2w

Jake :

Try placing the truck in reverse and move back a few feet

Jake :

then press the brake and place the truck in neutral again.

Jake :

shift back to 4lo

Jake :

then attempt to place back in 2wd

Customer:

tried it drove up and down yard changing from 4wl to 2wl did not work

Jake :

thanks did you place it back in 4lo

Jake :

before putting it in neutral and shifting back to 2wd?

Jake :

just making sure?

Customer:

yes

Jake :

does it flash when you attempt to change it?

Jake :

the indicator

Customer:

no it reads 4wl

Jake :

ok, so it's in 4lo then still.

Jake :

but it would let you change to 4hi in neutral you said correct?

Customer:

yes

Jake :

ok, i don't wan't to sound repetetive, but if your not getting any warning lights when attempting to change. then you try again by placing it in neutral and back into 2wd.

Jake :

cause generally when one of the switches is bad

Jake :

or the transfer device

Jake :

you get a fault

Customer:

will get back to you in morning when at yard thanks paul

Jake :

do that

Jake :

and make sure the ATP light is not on

Jake :

also

Jake :

assuming it's an auto

Jake :

because if ti can't detect a neutral position

Jake :

it won't let you shift out of 4wd

Customer:

no manual

Jake :

ok, they use the PNP switch to detect the neutral condition.

Jake :

did you press the clutch in to shift from 4lo to 2wd?

Customer:

yes read manual and tried what it said

Jake :

ok, thanks

Jake :

Jake :
