Sounds like from oraclesale's problem, the sensor is in the hub bearing. I was offroading today and got to a part where I needed a little more umph cause I got stuck and I put it in 4 low. Before I bought a new hub assembly I called my local Ford service department and told them my symptoms. The mechanic that I took it to a few days ago said that when he hooked it up to the diagnostics, all of the other wheels were responding but the front right and that meant that I have a bad sensor. In fact, my local Ford service department assured me that I had two separate issues.
They are located behing the coolant reservoir against the passenger front fender. It would not hurt to check the brake pad linings, sometimes the lining shifts and drops down off the metal of the pads. I'm having this problem as well, but I don't have a 4x4. It was the generator or alternator, whatever failing. Turns out, Ferd doesn't want a rash of busted t-cases when people get dumb, so they wired in a neutral safety switch that will not trip, even in park, even if the only difference between the two is a parking pawl. According to Ford, this is normal, and even the occasional clunk from the drivetrain is normal while in these modes. The alternator should now be diaconnected from the engine.

It's only a couple screws and a connector and shouldn't take too long to replace, but unfortunately many dealers get a little confused when you ask the for that particular part, so take the old one with you. Then consult your owner's manual for the replacement procedure. Now when I hit the test button, the light just comes on for a minute and won't do the three flash thing.
Replace the actuator if the pump does not hold the vacuum. Took it to ford and they checked it out and said my speed sensor was bad or something. You may notice excessive drivetrain and tire noise when using either of these options. In the end, it cost me a lot more apparently. You said you checked the fuses.
Push the button and sometimes it wouldn't engage the 4x4 system and when it did, sometimes pushing the button wouldn't turn it off. Prior to changing it out, no lights of any sort were on. But it should not happen unless you are applying brake at the time. We ended up having to…. Here is what I did and it worked perfect.
And yes, if that is the problem, you can do damage when turning. I had the same problem with my explorer, there is a drive motor which changes from four wheel drive to two wheel drive located on the transfer case. These problems included yours and Brake lights working independent of the brakes. It may be time to replace the actuators. Then we took the cables off of the battery and the alram started going off.
AnswerIts the rear abs sensor, located above the rear differential. Took it to the dealership. The 4x4 shift motor on your truck is likely bad. Using 4x4 auto should not create any drivetrain or tire noises that are not normally heard while in two-wheel-drive mode. For how long,and why are you here,v. If you are in 4X4 auto mode while traveling on wet or snowy roads, you can easily shift to 4X4 high if the road conditions worsen. But just a note, ours made a clunking noise while driving which is how we knew it was a problem with that chain drive inside the transfer case.
One button for turning on 4high and the other for 4low. I hope my exprience helps you. So that's why the 4x4 High would blink and then go away. But without actually feeling what you feel and hearing what you hear, I cannot be 100% sure that your 4x4 is engaged. Apparently, there is a faulty switch on the brake pedal that needs replacing.
More often than not, there will be other symptoms that'll help pinpoint what the issue is. My question is, does the sensor control the 4X4 component? In the end, it cost me a lot more apparently. I'm hearing the same sound as she is. The four-wheel-drive system is rather sophisticated when compared to the systems that were available in older Fords equipped with four-wheel-drive. Pushing the 4 Low, 4 High and Auto 4 Wheel makes no difference and the 4 Low light stays lit. Meantime, I did some searching on the internet and found an answer.
You'll need to either adjust or replace the brake light switch. Here's how to get out of 4-Low in any Ford or other truck really. Didnt get me out and eventually I got pulled out. Knowing which dashboard-mounted button to push -- whether it be 4X4 Auto, 4X4 high or 4X4 low -- will ensure that you are matching the correct option for that conditions present. The 4x4 could be a selenoid or sensor related issue as well.
