4x4 vacuum line problems



Ok i followed the diagram but i still have problems... Having the "correct setup" the axle stays locked all the time and the 4x4 light stays off. But when i switch the yellow and green lines on the CAD the axle stays unlocked all the time and the 4x4 light stays on.

It seems i have a constant vacuum from the yellow line all the time and none from the green line. It seems i need some help figuring out what is wrong.

Also on the diagram there is black and white figure on the yellow line that goes between the CAD and the T to the black line and indicator switch. What is this?

This is a better diagram of 1990 and before. For after 1990, your diagram is wrong. Sounds like the green line is bad or the switch on the transfer case is bad.

The "black and white figure" is a check valve.

Are the vacuum check valves just a standard item found in parts stores? I'm going to have to rebuild my vacuum system.

Ok found out that the switch on the t-case was bad. Replaced it now it works but the 4x4 indicator light is not turning on... the indicator is not bad though, I hooked direct vacuum to it and it turned on.

Probably a bad line. The lines are more than 20 years old. You probably should replace them all if you want it to be dependable.
