SOURCE: four wheel drive wont engage

If you have push button 4-Wheel Drive, it is recommended that you use it every once in a while, in order to keep gunk, rust, and corrosion to build up on moving parts. The mostly likeley (though not definite) reason would be that you let the 4-wheel drive unused for so long that corrosion has built up on the parts and the actuator that engages the 4-Wheel Drive doesn't have the power to engage it past the corrosion. You'll need to take it in to be cleaned, or to have parts replaced. In the future, every month or so, engage 4-Wheel Drive and drive around in some mud, grass, sand, or any other loose ground for a bit, just to keep the parts moving and clean.

The service Four wheel drive light is to alert the operator the system is not being read properly by the ECU.

If the ECU loses contact with or position of the Transfer case actuator motor the service light will come on. Same thing goes for the front diff actuator.

So it may be a bad switch, sensor, or an actual problem in the 4WD linkage. This is not a Oil Change light that you can ignore a few extra weeks - it indicates a problem that should be taken care of ASAP to avoid costlier problems down the road.
Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated!!

SOURCE: four wheel drive wont engage

I fought with this problem every year since I had the Sportage. And it was so frustrating to find out just when you really needed it, that you did not have 4-wheel drive. I replaced the hubs with manual hubs and I wish I would have done it at the beginning. They work great and are 100% reliable. Bottom line.. the vacuum hubs were a great idea that just plain did not work reliably. Save yourself alot of grief and money and just replace the hubs. Less than $200 including paying someone to put then on and I now can rely on my Sportage when I need it.

SOURCE: 88 Suzuki samurai 4x4 will not engage.

The shifter sheet is worn out or not even there (its rubber) from multiple uses. It eventually decades.

Tons of Samurai enthusiast retailers carry them. Lowrangeoffroad, Petroworks, Trail Tough, and more.

They also carry the one for the tranny shifter.

What caused 'service all wheel drive' indicator to turn on?


This could be a bearing going out or an ABS sensor going out. Get rid of the mechanic that can only rely on reading codes.

My Suzuki jimny will not go into four wheel drive, the four wheel drive light is on on the dash,it is a 2004 thanks.


Will the leaver not move? Try reversing a little, the forward. This might let it slip in place. Sometimes you get transmission wind up, causing the 4wd drive not to enguage.
If it won't come back out try the forward and reverse thing again.
I don't understand the light being on and your still not getting 4WD!

How do I put my 09 Suzuki SX4 AWD in lock position ?


You have a switch down by the shifter, on the side. You simply toggle the switch to lock position. You don't what to do that on dry pavement. Just put the switch in auto. The computer will engage and disenage when needed. Don Suzuki guy

Wheels clicking, disappears when brakes applied on 1998 Suzuki Sport


You may have a bad wheel bearing. When appling the brakes you cause the wheel to run straight and eliminates the noise. Check for slack in the front hub.

I have no drive on the front wheels of my suzuki vitara


Your front wheel hub is not locking when you engage the 4WD stick. Maybe the hub was not correctly installed during your last wheel bearing repacking.

Suzuki vitara91 model wont go into reverse


Either the clutch plates don't have sufficient clearance when the clutch pedal is pressed or they do have the clearance but are failing to separate.

Air in the hydraulic system, worn or maladjusted linkage or cable are the common causes of the first and oil/grease contamination or rusty splines the second scenario.
A failing clutch pilot bearing, if fitted, could also the symptom.
