ESOF

2008 f450 hubs not locking in auto. Light comes on. Transfer case engages. I do not have an issue with the defrost coming on. Vacuum pump comes on as soon as I switch to 4 wheel and does not shut off. Brand new selinoid installed by the battery. Where do I look now?? What could be the issue?

The leak is probably after the solenoid. Even with the leak, there might still be enough vacuum at the top of the system to run your defrost. It's not an extensive vacuum system, so hopefully it's not too tough to track down.

I was having issue with my ESOF a while back too. Turns out one of the vacuum lines came unplugged at the back of the hub. Easy fix.

I believe all the climate controls use electronic blend dampers now, & no vacuum. If your Vacuum pump only runs continuously after you switch to fwd, then it must be as the OP says in the previous post. Check the plastic vacuum lines that run to each hub.

Here is a link to another thread with a write up on the whole system, Post#2, good info

Hey guys. Mine does the same thing but I think my hvac is different then you lariat and king ranch guys. I got manual hvac not electronic. My defrost works fine, think it's still a leak somewhere? It's for sure been like this since 20k miles and has 37k now.

The hubs can be taking apart and the O-rings replaced. If it's not the vacuum lines then 9 times out of 10 it's just a O-ring or seal.
