Lets see where should I start. Ok when i'm going and I put it into 4 wheel drive I don't have a problem at all. It shifts into 4 wheel drive any time at any speed with no problem when I go to shift it back into 2 wheel drive it won't go back unless I tap my front brakes and then it will go back into 2 wheel drive. Another thing I noticed is when it's in 4 wheel drive and I shift it back into 2 wheel drive that when I slow down to under 3 mph the light goes out and when I speed back up to above 5 mph the light comes back on. I tried one other thing is when I slowed down and it went out and I gave it some pretty good gas maybe 1/2 throttle or so then the light would go out and stay out. I really didbn't have to much time to play with it today but thats what I noticed. Does anyone have any suggestions on what it might be. I also have an extended warranty until nov of 06. Will thry cover this problem? I would think they would. Thanks for any replys.

You have to be goin' under 5 mph for it to disengage. I usually just stop &
put it back in 2wd.

If you put it in 2wd & back up for about 10 feet, that will usually always
disengage it.

I can get it to go out just as long as i tap my front brake then it goes out with no problem. I just don't think that it's normal to do that. Thats why I was wondering whats wrong or what the problem is.

I had a problem with mine going back into 4x4 after I took it out, but I think I check the connections and it was fine after that. But I remember it working great and dissengaging even above 5 mph then it started to reengage after it disengaged now it works good but I got to be about stopped for it to disengage. It happened like the second week I had it.

My 4wd on my 450 Foreman is a little touchy as well. It goes in very easily (never tried going above 1-3 mph) but taking it back out is where it gets tricky. From almost day 1 i have to completely stop, click over to 2wd....wait for a couple seconds and you can feel the roller thing slide to disengage the front diff.

Now if I just click it over and start to drive it will stay in 4wd until I completely stop again and wait a sec for it to disengage.

Also, sometime it will start flashing and not do anything so a simple method I found to do when this happens reguardless of how fast your going is to turn the key on/off quicky and it cures the problem and never misses a beat.

Thanks for all the tips guys. I will try stopping and waiting a second next time. I tried it today and when I went from 4 wheel drive to 2 wheel drive and gave it some gas it went out and worked fine. I don't know if it just takes a second for it to disengage or what. Oh well it seems to be ok now. Thanks Aagin
