My 4wd does not engage engage (hi or Low) consistently. This morning i went out and it shifted into 4hi and low without any problems. This evening, I locked it in 4hi and after driving it approximately 1 mile on dirt road unlocked it and tried to shift back into 4 hi. No luck??? Both the 4wd Hi and Lo lights flash. I don't understand why. I just bought the vehicle from an ederly person who rarely used it. Last Wednesday my Ford dealer installed an electric ABS sensor since the ABS light was on. Any thoughts???
