    i just purchased this explorer ( i haven't even picked it up yet)

    it's a 91 xlt, with 82,000 original miles
    i bought it from a girl who inherited it from her grandfather, i only paid $2000, i still think i made out, my only known problem so far is the lack of 4wd low, actually here's the deal...

    i test drove it once, i pressed the 4wd HIGH button, and the light came on, of course i didn't get to test it out, because i was on dry pavement... so i am no absolutey sure if all 4 wheels were turning... i stopped, put in neutrual... pressed the 4 Low, NO light, put it in gear, and it definitaly was not in low gear, i tried almost everything, even dropping it in lower gears... so my big question is....

    Electrical or Mechanical????? what do you guys think, i know you all have vast more amounts of wisdom than i do about fords.

    I asked the owner, and they said it has never worked since they had it... they never used it.

    So where should i start? what do i need to do to get my 4wd Low light on, and 4wd Low actually working??

    I live on the beach, so i could definitaly use it.

    Thanks ever so much for listening to something i could have probably explained in a few short sentences...

    ok let me know

    Make sure the connection to the switch is tight too, and try pressing it over and over, sometimes they just get"rusty":D
