Stuck in 4 Low & Service 4wd System
I went off roading the other day. One of my differentials locked and didn't unlock. I'm not sure which one as I was trying to leave in a hurry and didn't have time to diagnose but it felt like the front one (the vehicle was struggling pretty bad around turns).
As I was exiting, I was attempting to disengage 4 Low. I was rolling forward at about 2mph in neutral and pulled the shifter up... Nothing happened. I tried again and held it for 5+ seconds... Again, nothing happened. Tried it rolling in reverse at 2mph and nothing happened. Tried one last time rolling forward and it still wouldn't disengage. I then turned the vehicle off and flipped the ignition 25+ times in attempt to reset the computer. Upon restarting the vehicle, I rolled forward in neutral at about 2mph and it finally disengaged 4 low, unlocked the differential and stopped displaying the Server 4wd System LED.
I'm worried that if I go back into 4 low that this will happen again and I may not be so lucky for it to go back into high gear. Anybody else had any issues with this? Anybody have any ideas on what the problem is or even better, what a preventative solution would be? Any help on this is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
