    1998 2.7 automatic will not go into 4wd. This is the 2nd time I needed to get towed out. Could it be the actuator everything else looks fine linkages vacuum. electric connectors fine works fine in 2wd.

    The 4X4 wouldn't work on my 2001.
    No 4X4 light on the dash either.
    They replaced the 4X4 Detact Switch on the transfer case.
    PN 8422235110 $75.65
    Diagnosing/labor was $187.00

    Hope it helps.
