I have a 99 Isuzu Trooper. Last snow storm my 4wd low and high were working fine. Then when I had it in TOD High the green lights started blinking and only the rear tires were lighting up. I then tried 4wd low and it would not work either. Today i removed and tested both VSV on the front axle and still no luck. Does anyone have any ideas? I would at least like the 4WD low to work

same problem here.my 4 high still doesnt work but did get 4 low to work by replacing the two vsv valves.they tested the correct ohms when testing but the one was stuck.its either them or the actuator on the axle.was to find out like i did is to find vacuum somewhere and connect it to the actuator.a vac.pump will work also just too see if the 4 low will lock.hope this helps,it did me.if i could just find out why my 4 high(tod)wont work.let me know what you find.does your check light flash?you can pull the codes manually yourself very easily.

Well, its not a Trooper, its a Vehicross. Still its an Isuzu. The dealer tells me that to fix my flashing TOD light that I need to spend over $1000 to replace ALL the wheel sensors and wiring harness. Guess what I told them. Then they said one wheel sensor could be replaced at over $400, told them the same thing. Hmmmm, need to replace all 4 now I need only replace one, whats up with that? My transmission is unaffected either in TOD or 4WD. The symptom is that while turning a tight radius the front wheels feel as though they are elliptical rather than round. (Yes, I had the fluids all replaced so it is not low) The explanation is that the wheels are out of synch because a wheel sensor needs to be replaced. The chip/card reader came back with a code of 16, 24 and 27. Is there an outlet for the Isuzu wheel sensors thats cheaper than the dealer? Any help here would be much appreciated. Thanks!

I am not personally familiar with the Vehicross, but the Trooper TOD systme uses two sensors mounted in the transfer case, one measures prop revs at frt prop, other does the rear. when imbalance is sensed, the TOD kicks in to transfer torques to eliminate unlike RPMs. I know those sensors are about $400 retail each. Your vehicle may use the ABS sensors to count wheel RPM at each wheel. I cannot believe that they cost that much, ABS sensors are usually much cheaper due to the quantities used. I would check with other sources. You can email Jerry Lemond at jlemondbellsouth.net to ask about your problem and he sells new and used parts too, at good prices. I use him a lot, he is fast and accurate and is a retired Isuzu factory technician so he knows his stuff. Hope this helps! One guys opinion.

Thanks Mike! I'll give Jerry a try. Maybe he can hook me up with some reasonable part prices.

I just purchased a used 95 trooper and yesterday had no probs putting it in and out of 4 H and 4 L. Today it will not move out of 4 L at all. Is there something I am not doing? The manual gives me no instruction at all.

I don't have a Trooper, I have a Vehicross (practically the same car). I have to put my transmission in Nuetral before I can shift in or out of 4WD.

I agree with the post regarding transmission mode. The transfer will not shift if there is stess on it,so it has to be in either neutral (preferred) or park. In park there is a chance that there is still pressure on drivetrain so neutral is preferred. You can try jogging the transfer a little by applying gas and removing gas to load and unload it, then neutral , shift to 2H and go. If it does not shift, then it may be a linkage problem but your model is pretty basic with manual shift lever, so post up and let us know how it works out. HTH one guys opinion.
