Cool electric 4wd issues

Glad to say after hearing many hor-stories about the 6.0L that i am now having issues with the truck leaving 4WD both high or low range.i have tried many ways, neutral, low speed, switch then back up (old skool)

the first time last night i took a 1/2-3/4 miles to drop out of 4WD to day i went 1 mile (not above 25mph). then turned it off and strated back up and sat in neutral for 5 mins then it swiched to 2wd. i haven't had it in high water, just some mud (clay) to pull out a H3 ( one kill for the truck )

so my question would be in it my switch, that seems to turn fine or the selinord? where is the selinord at?



amy help would be great..... i have 15 miles under 54K on the odometer (hope that is a good thing. )


thank ahead of time.

I feel your pain. I have a 2006 F-350 DRW that is stuck in 4x4 LOW! I wanted to make a 300 mile trip tomorrow.

I checked the fuses and giggled the module that controls the on the fly 4x4. My Tow-Haul is also not working.

I parked it in 4x4 Low on an icy portion of the drive. The battery died in the cold and upon recharging, it's stuck in 4x4 LOW.

I tried everything. Taking the terminals off the batteries, driving it around to warm up; reverse then forward, sit in Neutral and try the buttons; on and on.

The truck has always run fine (bone stock work truck) there just seems to have been all sorts of ghosts in the machine, mainly in the form of shorts in the lights that are sometimes hard for a low skilled wrencher like me to find.

Any suggestions would be welcomed.

-Matt

matt, hope you find a fix for yours, if you find the magic electic box let me know since i just used the car wash to clean the under carrage off and the last 4-5 times it had switched in and out of the 4wd just fine.

I peeked under near the transfer case. The solenoid, switch, or magic box that I assume takes it in and out of gear looks to have the typical wiring you see these days; long on that crappy chafe guard and electrical tape.

It's raining 3" an hour or something nuts in Philly, when it stops I'm going to hose it off and give those connection a giggle. (after I find the leak in my $*!&^#!'ing roof)

I appreciate the advice.

I wiggled the main connection into the "magic box", jumped in, turned to 2x, started it, and found that it was working. Drove around in some puddles for good measure. I don't think it hurt that it's about 65 degrees today in Philly.
