4x4 not working...electrical...

ok, i've read a lot about all this happening... but here it goes....


i have ESOF.... turn the knob... nothing works. no lights on the dash, nothing.

So i've checked all of my fuses (all good)
i've checked my transfer case motor (thats good)
i've checked all of my relays (they are good)
i tested out the plug that plugs into the xfer case motor... nothing. no power or anything...


help. what can this be... with summer coming up and me pretty close to the outer banks, NC i want to get this issue fixed ASAP.

Ok, so I don't get any lights on the dash either, even though it engages.

Have you checked to see if the driveshaft is spinning? If it is then your hubs probably aren't locking automatically, and there is a vacuum leak somewhere. But I'm going to assume you've tried locking them manually.

front drive shaft is not spinning. i've tried manually locking them in.
