Name is Greg, My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back,

Hi sorry to get to you so late ,i have just been informed you are still waiting .

If the two top green wheel light are flashing then this is a possible problem with your front wheel drive detection switch ,what is mosrt likely happening is the vacuum switch under the air filter box has a problem or the vacuum hoses are damaged or come off .

A few things can happen here when you select 4WD, a signal is sent to the two vacuum switches under the filter box and gives vacuum to the
front axle selector to put you into 4WD, if this does not fully engage the two green light will start to flash .letting you know that the selector rod has not fully engaged .Loss of vacuum or too little vacuum will cause this .

So first check the vacuum lines ,if all vacuum lines are okay check the vacuum solenoids and replace if need ,these are the most common issue for this type of failure if the vehicle has never been worked on that may cause the vacuum lines to become unhooked.

Check the vacuum and solenoid switches first then please get back to me if needed.

Need further assistance then please get back to me with the reply box and not the poor or bad service button .

If you put the 4WD into 4WD does the lights go solid or still flash..

When I put into 4wd only the two front lights come on and still flash

Expert:  Greg replied 3 years ago.

Remove the front switch and test ,with the switch removed and still connected press in and out the rod and the the light should go solid and off.
If it does not then replace the switch, if it does then the actuator is not engaging fully and will have to be checked .
