    Well i did hear a rumour.....


    On another note i have some rabbit compaction that needs attending to. Anyone know a person who has the kit to deal with such a situation?
     
  3. whatever you do, make sure you get a competent driver with a good machine. If neither criteria is met there will be dire consequences, especially if rabbits have compacted the ground

    7610 AP stuck in 4wd. Do the brake lights affect this at all?
     
  5. Think if alternator is faulty the 4wd sticks in, not sure about the brake lights

    Can't just remember rightly but I think 4wd is on the same fuse as the brake lights.

    Brake lights aren't connected to 4wd on 10 series
    It's most likely the solenoid is faulty

    It's a long time since we had a 10 series but iirc it's on the side of the drop box

    The actual brake lights aren't linked to 4wd but I'm nearly sure the same fuse is,but if the lights are working,it'll not be that.

    The newer ones need power to take then out of 4WD, not sure about the 10series. So you might have no power when you check at the solenoid.
     
  13. Does the dual power work ? Same fuse for 4wd/dp I had a problem with mine with the wiring shorting on the cab frame, blowing the fuse, would stay in 4wd and low dp

    The solenoid is in the drop box there is a small cover on the side were the wire goes in, it needs power the to get out of 4wd

    I'd check wiring and switch first. Never had a problem with the solenoids.

    Dual power is working so its not the fuse I'll swap the switches and see if that works (y)

    The wire goes out through the connectors in front of the cab I've had bad connections there causing both dual power and 4wd problems. I would run a wire straight to the solenoid and see if it functions then and if not the seals could be letting pressure past. The seals are just one rings and can go flat and hard with time and heat.
