Greg says: November 27, 2007 at 12:fifty one am Thanks for The nice ideas. I used to be in a position to figure out many of your far more fundamental suggestions and confirm that my front travel shaft is turning when in 4wd but not in 2wd. To date so fantastic (It appears to me), so I’m investigating making use of my newfound understanding re.
May be a TCCM problem, encoder motor problem or a problem as part of your transfer scenario — all of which has been protected here.
I still don’t have pics however, I’ve just been busy with a bunch of stuff at this moment — but I can go more than several matters so that you can check/do.
Properly, do what you could and allow me to know — And that i’ll do my best that will help you by way of it — I’d love to see you take care of it far too! Regards;
As to the vacuum change you associated with earlier mentioned — could extremely properly be the condition. For $18.ninety five, it’s cheap to find out! However, for pennies you can check it — NAPA (and possibly Other folks, like PepBoys, and so forth.) will have vacuum hose connectors — male to male connectors will assist you to stick 2 vacuum lines jointly.
It Seems “electrical” to me… accordingly, the initial location I’d start hunting is for the TCCM for corrosion. Then, I’d Have a look at the schematics posted inside this thread and start in search of sensors.
Incidentally, the supplier told me that 4Lo generally cannot be turned on Except if you set the vehicle in the neutral. If by some means automobile goes into 4Lo by by itself, just place it within the neutral place, and you'll swap out 4Lo.
The first thing I would do is disconnect the battery and Allow it sit for any one/two hour or so — then reconnect the battery and cycle the ignition from on to off three times — this should reset the TCCM.
Buffalo, eh? I listen to you — I’m just north of you in Ontario, Canada. You guys been having pelted this 7 days way too? We acquired eight inches yesterday, which commenced around two:00pm — just in time with the drive property.
should really i be unplugging my tccm and resetting the procedure soon after i transform to encoder motor. I assumed it absolutely was a transfer case proplem because i thought it absolutely was binding up and never letting teh encoder motor begin in 2wd.
Hey $a hundred and forty is rather darn great when compared to a number of the estimates I've witnessed men and women get to repair their 4WD! Regards;
No problem in any respect… which was my sole intention… that can help others with the same dilemma (and conserve a ton of cash much too!).
We now have checked fuses,(all ok) the TCCM experienced somewhat corrosion but all indications are that it is Performing. Just one vacuum line was broken and we fixed it. We are not sure regarding the vacuum switch Doing work appropriately or not. I am able to’t enter into a mechanic for numerous times. What we would want to know is: Can we unplug the TCCM and drive the car securely right up until I could possibly get it to a mechanic? Thanks for the help
UPDATED 12/twelve/07 – I just desired to add to this publish that the TCCM has two relays inside of that Regulate the particular switching on the encoder motor — you which is what you hear “clicking” when you test to have Try THESE Guys interaction the 4WD process.
