4 wheel drive

    Hi Folks,

    I bought a 1994 Carry with axle lock and dif lock. Neither the limited slip light or dif lock light come on. I put the truck on blocks and when I engage the 4x4 the front drive shaft spins as it should but the Axles aren’t spinning. It’s not turning my front wheel / wheels?

    Is it not engaging the axles because the dif / axle lock switches are bad? Please help.

    Thank you

    Limited slip??? I think you mean the front axle disconnect.

    I haven’t. I’ll have to research where to find those so I can check. Where are they located and what am I looking for? Thanks

    Hello, I think you need to check electrical parts or wires if all working,
    hope this will help,

    Paul, Did you get your problem fixed? What did you ever find?

    Hey, I've got a 1990 Suzuki Carry and I'm having the same problem. Funny thing with these trucks is: I've noticed that sometimes this issue resolves its self. Right now my truck had been sitting a while and the lights aren't coming on for the Axel Lock and Diff Lock. The green 4WD light comes on the dash, and it still goes into Low range, but the front wheels aren't engaging. Who knows the most likely issues with this? This seems to be a common issue for older trucks that have sat for a while.

    I could be off base here, but reading this thread, that started in June, 2019. Not all that long ago. With no posted resolve's! I tend to agree with S. Hiro! Don't be afraid to clean any electrical connections, and use Die Electric grease on them, especially on any so called solenoids, with vacuum lines attached! Especially as these mini's get older, observe how the old grease is getting hardened and, kinda corroded over! Not good! I don't see how it would hurt! I did this and have had good luck on my 89 Daihatsu!

    Do you have any idea of which solinods were problematic on your 89 Daihatsu Hijet?
    I am having the same 4WD problem on this as the Suzuki was having. The front Axel lock does not lock up when the 4WD button is pressed and the light on the dash doesn't come on.
    I've tried cleaning all sorts of electrical connectors with contact cleaner, including the connectors right under the front seat that haver vacuum hoses coming out of them. The button on the lever Is working. how can I fix this?

    If my ment is correct power goes from the switch to the light and to the selonoids. Then to ground. If a solenoid burns out then the path for everything go ground is broke. All my manuals are on my old laptop.

    I wish that I had answers for you. My 4x4 hasn't acted up yet!
