  • Delay in engaging 4WD


    My 1992 LN130 has an issue. After pressing the 4WD button to engage high ratio 4wd it takes about half a mile for the 4wd light to come on. Upon pressing the button I can hear the relay click immediately it just takes ages for the light to come on / 4wd to work. I've tried reversing back and driving forwards etc with no luck.

    Any help or guidance would be much appreciated, cheers James.

    Hi James,
    This problem may just be down to a lazy actuator I had similar issues quite a few years ago now with my LN130 (not much use) if ya not constantly going Offroad.. Try putting it in 4WD via the High/ Low range lever (gear selector in N) after ya done this put it back in High n try the button, do this few times a week for a couple of weeks n hopefully it will solve ya problem when ya next try it a few months later.... Keep us informed if it worked or not ...
    Good Luck ..

      Great, thank you ! I shall give that a try for a few weeks and report back. I am certainly hoping it is a lazy actuator !
