4x4 Wont Work
First off, Im new here. I have always had Dodges, this is my first Ford.
When I turn on the key, the 4x4 light comes on, so I know the light works. When I switch the 4x4 switch to 4 Hi or 4 Lo, nothing happens. No light, no sound. I pulled the switch, and it looks like the prior owner (I have no idea who it was, I bought this truck from a dealer) was troubleshooting it because the shielding on the wire is trimmed back to expose the wire. I have read that the transfer case motors go bad often on these. But I also read that the GEM can go bad, but Im not sure if there is a GEM on my 2004. I read somewhere that they discontinued the use of GEM's in 2003. Is this true? Is there anything else i should check before buying a new motor assembly? Thanks.
