Mazda B4000

I just bought a mazda b4000 and the guy told me that I had to put in neutral to put on 4×4 and then put it in reverse when the light comes on but I’ve put it on drive to turn the 4×4 button (yeah I’m dumb😅) now the light blinks 6 times and then stops for 2-3 minutes even if the button is on 2 high and I cannot hear the transfer case motor… I have need help… it’s tough in Canadian winters on 2wd


4×4 light blinks 6 times every two minutes

4×4 Blinking Lights Possible Cause
  • Wiring
  • 4×4 shift motor
  • 4×4 fuse – Be sure to check FUSE#13 in the battery junction box under the hood.
  • GEM – Generic Electronic Module
ACTION:

Perform On Board Diagnostics with scan tool to retrieve DTCs (Diagnostic Trouble Codes)

  • Connect Scan Tool
  • Select Diagnostic Data Link
  • Next Select GEM – Generic Electronic Module
  • Finally Select RETRIEVE DTCs

Flashing lights usually means its stuck between 2 wheel high and 4 wheel high.

You can pull the shift motor and turn the **** with pliers.  Otherwise cleaning it or replacing it are your options.

Servicing a transfer case shift motor

sometimes you can tap on the motor and it may go in 4 wheel drive
