Ranger 2007 4X4 help

28 March 2008 - 06:41 PM

Hi All, first post to this site as very little info available antwhere else on the web !!

I have had my 2007 Ranger Thunder D/Cab for 1 year now from new, its back at the dealer having its 1st years service and minor repairs.

I have issues with its 4x4, I engaged 4x4 one day when the heavens opened and road surface was awash with water , driving along fine in a relatively straight line until I needed to make a turn on a small round-about and the truck put up a resistance (like hand brake applied whilst driving !). I have discovered this on several occasions and I am confused !

The owners manual is poor and not clear on its proper use, yes I understand that I have the option of going off road but this is not likely to be a habit of mine !

Any one else experienced this, Ford dealer has stated a couple of their guys got caught out whilst trying to park a truck !! This seems to be a bad system ? :(

Any Help appreciatted !
