you can disconnect the shift motor...this maybe the problem...mean while you will wear out your front tires really quick ..or cause some damage to the front differential

Why only the front tires....?
The ENTIRE driveline(***) will be under undue stress and overheating, inclusive of all four tires, with the center diff'l constantly locked.
*** Except the front diff'l.
I'm surprised he doesn't already have broken thumbs or fingers.

Did this turn out to be a problem with the motor or the shift control module? I'm trying to use a volt meter and/or a test light to see if I am getting power to the motor. NOTHING. I even attempted to test the yellow wire going into or out of the SCM. NOTHING. Question: does the brake have to be depressed when testing. I am getting dash display when hit the buttons 4X4 Hi and 4X4 lo but I don't here the motor clicking or even the SCM clicking.

Did this turn out to be a problem with the TC motor or the SCM?
#147 of 184 Won't Drive past 20 mph

I hope someone can help before I have to go back to the dealer again for this truck. I have an 05 Expedition and it was in 4WD it was slipping on the ice and was returned back to 2WD, but now the only way to get the truck to drive normal is with the overdrive light on,if the overdrive light is off the truck won't excel past 20 mph and just revs. Can anyone help. It was running just fine. Is there a safety that locks up??

How many miles are on the old girl? Is the OD light on steady, or flashing? The OD light flashing means your transmission is failing and will need serious service to recover. Even if it's not, sounds like your transmission is done for to me.
#149 of 184 97 Explorer Sport 4WD Transfer Case Issue...I think?
Feb 24, 2011 (3:57 pm)
Ok I have a 97 Explorer Sport 4WD, and the other day it started to make a dry/ grinding sound when I switched it into 4HI or 4Lo. So I put fluid in to Transfercase thinking it was just low. Now it (at 30mph) jerks / shimmys / and lurches. It got stuck in 4Lo and wouldnt switch back, untill I let it set for about 1/2 hour. I was told that the transfer case was out or going out. Is this correct? If not what else could it be?
