Im looking to buy a 97 1500 and the owner is saying that the 4wd does not engage.
This is the email I got from her.
The 4wd hasn't worked since last fall. The light would come on sporadically, but it wasn't engaging.
Now this truck is almost 4 hours away from me so I cant really drive up just to crawl underneath and do my own troubleshooting.
Are the transfercases chain or gear driven? If the chain was loose it could cause this but is should still make noise when driving down the road if its that loose. Did dodge do any vacuum disconnect in 97? (I know they did a vacuum disconnect in Jeeps up untill 90-91)
If this is a common issue and I find it by searching I am sorry but I am trying to get an answer asap. (I am searching dont worry)
