Default RFW problem

no sure if it should be in here but the rfw light doesnt seem to come on when i engage 4wd. i looked under the axle and it looks like the arm might be rusted in the open position. would this be the problem or would it be something else?

Default Re: RFW problem

what do you mean it doesnt come on? and by rfw do you mean your right front wheel? rangers have open differentials up front so if your stuck only one tire up front usually spins.

Default Re: RFW problem

not i have a 01 european ranger stretch cab. 2.5 diesel. on the dashboard there is a switch marked RFW (remote free wheel) or so im told. when 4wd is engaged this should engage from what i have read and a light should come on on the dash. but t doesnt. i looked at the rear axle and there is an arm connected to a vacuum solenoid. this arm looks to be rusted in one position which i assume is the off. i have no prob going from 4h/l to 2 h.
just wondering what could be the problem? electrical or hardware?
