I have a v6 with part time 4wd. When I put it into 4hi I have 4wd but the 4wd and the center diff lock lights flash. Everything seemed to be working normally except for the lights. I was on a little back road today driving slow in 4hi and out of nowhere my front wheels locked up and I slid to a stop. I finally got it unhung and back to 2wd to get it home, but if the lights are flashing don't mess with it. If that would have happened on the interstate I could have been killed.

What's not engaging? The center diff lock? 4lo? The V8 is full time 4wd.

Chances are that your actuator is bad
On the v8 it's a pretty in-depth job and $ of actuator itself is expensive
Best of luck

So did somebody come up with the solution to this issue?

Lost 4wd last month, and a buddy has the same issue.

it full time 4wd v8 model, yet I bought it from a guy who didn't tell me it is only working in 2wd, so it must be the actuator. you have to take out transfer case to replace it. The other models are easy to replace the motor. This one has clips on the actuator rods. So I am not in the mkt for dropping the t-case. might be out of luck unless I can tap on it or something?

Since mine is the v8 also with full.time 4wd
I installed a switch to trick the computer into thinking its locked
That in turn turns off the vsc trac
Too.much $$$ to fix
Best of luck

My '05 V6 T4R is being a real *****, could use some assistance and you seem to have helpful advice. Got stuck in 4Lo, the 4wd light started flashing when out on the trails. When I try to shift out of 4lo it starts beeping. Shop has replaced two t-case actuators, thinking 1st one might be bad, didn't fix issue. Tried replacing front ADD actuator, no fix. Could it be the 4wd ECU? Appreciate any help you might have!!

Here's a "Quick Training Guide" from TIS on the '03-'09 T4R 1GR-FE 4WD system and what testing would look like:
Attachment 94231

So if you did manage to do an actuator test of the system, your screen should have shown a data list of the following switches with on/off indications when you tested the actuator:

~TL1
~TL2
~TL3
~DL1
~DL2
~ADD

The system uses a combination of On/Off switches to know what position it is in currently, what position it wants, and if it in fact shifted into that position. A failure of any one or more switches can cause the ADD or Transfer Case Actuator to not even engage.
