1996 Dodge Ram 1500 Q&A
1996 Dodge Ram 1500 Question: 4 wheel drive
Did you look at the vacuum hose routing diagram under the hood? It may help some. - pushrod
It goes to a vacuum reservoir and from there to a vacuum switch on the front of the transfer case. Then the lines go to the front hubs. Do you have vacuum to the switch at the transfer case? Does it maintain vacuum after the engine is turned off? There is a check valve a few inches from the port coming off of the manifold that has to hold vacuum for the system. By the way, this is the same check valve and reservoir that supplies vacuum for the heater controls, so if they work correctly and you can control where the air is coming out of your dash then you don't have to worry about the supply side of the system. There are lots of problems with the switch on the transfer case, the hoses, the hubs and even the splines on the axle shaft that this system engages/disengages. - cardocIII
