Have you replaced the vac pipes? Did you ensure all hoses were reconnected correctly?

the fact the green light on the 4x4 button keeps flashing means 4wd is not engaging properly, it should be a solid light. if both actuators have been replaced recently id check all vac pipes are connected properly , as for the eml coming on briefly that could be caused by the vac pipes. might be an idea to see if any codes have registered !

all vac pipes have been replaced in correct order,very very recently.the 4 wheel drive works as it should do.the green light goes solid.both axles are working.know this as I have had it up on a ramp at a mates garage.when you press button to come out of 4 wheel drive the axles disengage but the green light just carries on flashing.i might have upset my mate as I am always bothering him for the use of his ramp.all vac pipes have been done correctly.so perhaps you can understand my problem.but thank you for any thoughts you might have had.no codes registered.everything cleared.

Had the same problem with mein bud it was the pipe line that comes from the back off the bulk head am sure it goes to the actuator or turbo meins was off a little bit bud the pipe to get to you have to stand over the front off engine it's right at the bulk head underneath windscreen

Pipe that is by the bulkhead goes into the vac pump this one often gets missed/left as it's fiddly.

You don't need a ramp bud take your plastic cover off top off engine and you'll see it a bit better sits right underneath your windscreen so you have to practically lye over the top off your engine to reach it so better done on the ground bud Easyer to get to just abit fidley to put pipe on a stood on a few concrete block just to get a bit height so a could reach over to put pipe on made it a bit Easyer rather than standing normal to reach it

job done.seems to run better but the eml still comes on when you slow down at junctions etc..only when the engine has warmed up.may have to live with it unless somebody comes up with something nobody thought of.

sorry to be a wet blanket,,been there done it ..changed egr,,done all the vac pipes both top and bottom,that includes pipes on both actuators..so presumably I have forgotten something.replaced all three solenoids on the nearside inner bulkhead in engine bay,,.so a thought on something I may have missed.thanks in advance.had a diagnostic done and it came up with one code.po400.i am given to understand by the machine at the time that this was fuel critical.however looking on line that code comes up as vac related.the car itself goes like a train,there is no smoke,it starts as it should and generally does what I expect it to do.and yes the codes were cleared.no smell of fuel,get good mpg so at the moment I am at a bit of a loss.
