Shoot - hard to say and not real good with Ford 4X4. If selection lights then check underside that connection to actuator are good then let's go from there,

Light comes on sometimes not every time it is weird how it just started doing this all last winter shifted fine now this yr you have to go back and forth from 2 wheel tolow 4x4 to get it to engage and like I said sometimes lightsup sometimes it takes a while for light to appear

I may have messed you up with what direction to go with this. Out of hundreds of my own vehicles only 2 were 4X4 and dammit the hydraulic actuator to engage it was painfully slow so replaced that. Now slow but still not amusing as I plow snow with the damn thing.

If I messed you up start a new thread - same subject but put in subject line "2002 Ford F250" with a 4X4 issue will help the volunteer help here get you the best direction to chase down. I should have steered clear of this thread - sorry if I messed you up and YES help is here,

Your going to have to start that other thread again. I saw it as a duplicate and deleted it before reading Tom's response.
