4 wheel drive stuck

Unread post by ksmith2800 » Thu Feb 19, 2015 2:10 am

1997 F150 - I was on a hill with about 2" of snow. I applied the brake and turned the 4 wheel drive button. The light did not come on. The truck shifted in high gear. The transmission got slower and slower but the light still did not come on. Then after that I could not get it out of gear. When this happens how do you get it out of gear? Do I step on the brake?

I don't understand your question. your 4wd switch should affect your transfer case and the front hubs. high gear to me is talking about your automatic transmission overdrive gear. So, are you saying that your transmission is stuck in overdrive? That it no longer downshifts to lower gears when you come to a stop and accelerate from a stop? are you talking about 4wd or 4wd low? Need more information.
