That's the ticket. If one cleans both VCV modules it will work again. It's not always necessary to remove them from the axle to do it. I cleaned mine on the truck using Sea Foam and then contact cleaner. I figured it was worth a shot before disassembly. I did mine between snow storms and it works just fine. Some times it's still a wee bit sluggish to engage but I still have the option to completely clean it off the truck when the weather breaks. It took me all of fifteen minutes to do.

I have a 2001 Isuzu trooper and my TOD check light is flashing, when I engage 4 wd only the front tires light up, this leads me to believe there is a disconnect to the rear somehow. Any ideas on what to check/replace/fix?

Not clue, I'm still driving mine with a flashing light. I tried cleaning the connector to the sensor in the right side of the trans. Didn't help it though. The other option is to just go to the dealer and have him trace it with their card reader. Make sure you take several credit cards with you. The sensors are ridiculously expensive and only the manufacturer has them.

The cleaning of the connector to the sensor in the right side of the transmission did the trick. I used some old spray-on radio/tv contact cleaner that I have had laying around for over 25 years, lol. It was kind of gucky and sticky. It didn't do anything. After a week or so I decided to dab the inside of the male and female halves of the connecter with cleaning solvent and Qtips. After making sure it was clean of all the guck I used compressed air to dry it. Problem solved. TOD light no longer flashing and TOD green lighted wheel indicators on dash behaving as should. I am now able to make tight turns without the front tire scrubbing the pavement.
#94 of 98 Horn INOP and Airbag light on after steering box chg
Sep 14, 2010 (5:55 am)
I have a 2000 Isuzu Trooper LS 2WD with 106K miles. It has been a tank thus far. Recently the steering became very sloppy, about 2 inches of movement left and right from center on the steering wheel before the tires moved. I adjusted the screw to no avail so I replaced the steering box with one from a junk yard off a lower-mileage 2002. The improvement was immediate but it left behind two problems:
1- The Airbag Light is permanently on
2- The horn does not work.
Being that they both are in and around the steering column, which was disconnected from the steering box gear knuckle during the r/r, I assume this is not a coincidence. What did I miss? Is there a switch or a cable that has come loose somewhere? I disconnected the battery to see if it would reset but it did not.

Hey, just joined this forum. I have the exact same problem with my 2002 Trooper. Did you ever track down an answer?
