Make sure switch is pointing to 4low. Drop truck into neutral. Then switch back to 2wd.

OK Yea DUH....big bold letters 4x4crm...i will check the voltages on the connector and let you know what i read...the problem i had with 4x4 lo engaged by itself while selector switch was set to 2wd also speedo would not work right ..problems disapeared when i reconnected battery after removing dash...i will assume problem was with 4x4cm. is c284 the back of selector switck or on CM
