I need help quick guys.Stuck in 4 wheel drive
I put my truck in 4wd just to get it across the lawn,and I had no problem.I put the truck in 2wd,took off down the street,goto make a left and get this awful bind,snap noise.I stop the truck,put it back in 4wd,then into 2wd,back it up 10 feet, go forward and it's still stuck in 4wd.It acts/sounds like the drivers side is hung up and I cannot figure out how to get it back in 2wd.I have to drive 48 miles a day and I really dont wanna burn my front diff up.any idea's on how to get it out??
Just to be clear,the tranfer case is shifting fine, lo/hi range.
I jacked the front left tire up, put it in neutral,and if I spin the wheel,the front driveshaft is spinning.
I did try to hold the driveshaft,spint the wheel,no dice,if one spins,the other goes with it.I cannot find a 4wd/Front actuator on the axle or a fuse.any ideas??
